Dreamcast Collection Vinyl Surfaces on eBay

I'd never even heard of this until...about 20 seconds ago, but it appears that in 2011 SEGA released a 12" vinyl record containing a selection of the Dreamcast's best tunes. This record was made to celebrate the launch of the Dreamcast Collection on the Xbox 360, and bizarrely only made available to those who pre-ordered from certain retailers in Australia. I've got nothing against Australia (in fact, I was considering emigrating there a few years ago), but Australia?! No US or EU release at all? Very odd if you ask me.

But fear not! One lucky record-collecting Dreamcast fan (I would presume) has decided to put their extremely rare copy (1686 of just 2000) of the Dreamcast Collection vinyl up for auction on that there eBay. Please be assured that this isn't me shamefully trying to get my own item sold/get more views - anyone who knows me knows damn well that I'll never, ever part with any of my retro gaming items. Indeed, I fully intend to have a coffin specially created that will be voluminous enough to contain all of my collected junk so I can take it to the grave with me. Don't worry, I've also booked a forklift truck to move said coffin so no 'No Win, No Fee' backache claims will be coming to bite my ghost in it's spectral ass.

Fancy bidding on this super-rare item? Or just fancy having a look? Then go here, dear reader! Please note that the starting bid is £99.99...which bit steep for six tracks from Sonic Adventure and Space Channel 5, but cest la vie and all that.

Update: It appears that the item didn't sell...but never fear, it's been re-listed. I'd advise lowering the £99 starting price to be honest. Meh.

I have 2 of these, but no record player. There is some confusion about the number of songs on it, as it says 6 songs but only lists 5 on the back. I don't know if this means there is a hidden track.
