[rescue] Looking for a DEC VT-100 in Australia

Hey everyone, for the past few months I've been working on a roguelike project
in my spare time, running it in the OS X terminal emulator. I recently came
across a few articles [1] [2] on using a serial terminal with OS X and I'm
really interested in getting a hold of one for use in videos and such when
showing off the game as well as having a convenient terminal for system
monitoring, git, irssi and whatnot. As this is going to be used in video, it
needs to be a good looking terminal, and after looking around a bit I settled
on the classic VT-100 from DEC. The only problem is I can't find one to
purchase anywhere online. I've contacted my local university and made a post
on MetaFilter asking where to get one and I was pointed here, so I'm wondering
if anyone had an old VT-100 that they no longer had any use for.

I'm located a few hours south of Sydney, Australia and I'd prefer not to have
to ship one in from overseas (although I'd be willing to as a last resort).
Any help you could provide in finding one would be great.
