Don't know why but this made me laugh out loud and scare the cat.
Sort of unrelated, but I got my first Falcon in 1999 off eBay, paid £90 for it with a Mega ST 2 with working monochrome monitor and 3 atari mice, no keyboard with the MST though.
It all works out though, because I sold my original boxed 1040STFM with all my boxed games (over 200) + 1000+ floppies and ST format 1-46 (only missing ST Format 6) on ebay for the grand total of £14.20 in 2002. Thank god it was collection only, but it went to a good home at least.
The first Falcon I purchased was also in 1999 but I'm in the U.S. and these machines seem to sell for more here and you just got an amazing deal! If memory serves me correctly, it was $650 shipped but was loaded at 14MB and had a BlowUpFX.
Purchased a 2nd Falcon years later but it had a Centubro-II in it? Think this one was around $700 and it made the DSP super wonky so outside of strictly a few audio programs, it didn't seem to be a very stable machine so I ridded that off and a chiptune guy bought it.
Then I lucked out and got not one but two Falcons - one was a Bell+Howell unit kind of rough condition but work perfect for $200 I ended up giving to a friend and the other mint one was my pride and joy, perfectly stock and ran amazingly that cost me around $900 in 2002. That's the Falcon I wish I never would have had to sell but, life happens and bills need paid.
Can't believe it's been almost 13-14 years and I'll be getting another Falcon of the C-Lab variant soon that I'm very eager and excited to really use. If I could ever find a truly mint condition, fully loaded U.S. stock Falcon, I would certainly see that being worth the $1,200 range for sure. With a nice SC1435 to boot with it. =D but I suppose it's really hard to top the best of the best of a C-Lab Mk.2
