Well the problem is not whether anybody wants to buy it or not, but whether anybody can afford such an expensive item. That it doesn't do much is another thing, which might be a part of difficulties in selling it.vermillion wrote:Some of you guys ask why someone would want to buy the thing because it's just a prop?
The funny thing is there's most likely a few JMJ fans out there, perhaps visiting the board who would buy it....and I think we know the types! I bet there's a few people out there who have stood in their bedroom miming along to Rendez-vous 2, pretending to play the Laser Harp!
Certainly after 1993, I knew FOUR Jarre fans who couldn't play a keyboard who bought a Roland AX1. So you just know that hours were spent in front of the mirror waving the AX1 around to Chronologie 4.
Just imagine if those guys could get a replica of the 86 Magic Keyboard, let alone the actual one built for the performances...and all they had to do was plug it into a wall socket and it would light up when they touched those keys! It doesn't take a great leap of imagination to see those guys in their darkened garage with an almost orgasmic look upon their faces as they blare out Equinoxe 5 and dream of being Mr Jarre....DAMN, now there's an image I wouldn't want to see in real life....or in the mirror!!!
A possible buyer need to be someone not only with a lot of money, but also with an amount of money equal to the price, which they are able to spend on random stuff.
