Default Re: Mattel Aquarius

I did have a look at that history and then, out of interest, went to see what they have typically sold for, looking only at sold listings.

Given their very limited production run (only several months) I was surprised to find that in some cases they have only gone for about 30-40, but more obviously complete systems (Boxed, with all accessories) seem to go for several hundred pounds. Much probably depends on whether the right person is looking at the right time.

Individual accessories such as the matching cassette recorder seem to vary wildly in price from mere teens to as much as 50-60.

I did also discover that someone has produced a replica Aquarius PCB, so someone must have loved them enough to go to all that trouble.

It will be nice to see if that old machine powers on.
