You need to use a middleman, of which there are many and they all have similar features.

When you buy something, they will hold it for 1-3 months (depending on which service you use) then you can combine the lot when shipping back to the UK

Dedicated Sword controller?

So many cool arcade games which should have been ported to the Wii.

It's ace! Even the bootleg is good (missing sound effects) otherwise well worth the 50 quid.

Had a feeling this Squawkers would sell for a lot less. Still about twice as much as I'd consider dropping on one, though :lol:

That auction actually almost escalated, but the other bidder decided not to blow it up ;)

For those of you who don't already know, there are at least 2 revisions of J.J. Squawkers.

The last auction is "easy" type. This one is the slightly harder revision one with the guy humping the tree dropping blue spikes.

Hadn't actually realised there were different revisions. Seems like I've been playing the harder revision in Mame. Although I'm sure I'll probably still suck at the easier revision, too :oops:

I’m so lazy when I fire up Mame these days, I tend to just stagger through with the keyboard. Probably less of a handicap than playing with closed eyes…but that’s the excuse I’m going with :P
