If rare Sega consoles are your prime fetish, then the Wondermega posted here must have you itching to click on this lovely Wondermega eBay auction link. Seller ships worldwide, the console seems to be in great shape and even comes with three games (Sonic CD, Night Trap and Gunstar Heroes). Oh, and in case someone hadn't heard before, the Victor produced Wondermega is a Mega CD and a MegaDrive combined into one -admittedly classy- console.
What you see above might not come in a mint condition box or feature its tiny manual, but is an almost complete, quite rare, very retro and definitely brilliant TRON mini-arcade. The console itself is in mint condition. Seller ships only within the UK. Grandstand TRON eBay auction.

The Entex Adventurevision is rare as it is a beautiful vintage gaming machine. Smaller and more compact than the Vectrex, the Adventurevision resembled a miniaturized arcade cabinet, that displayed its awesome but flickering graphics via a spinning mirror and 40 red LEDs. It managed a 150x40 resolution. The console used cartridges and only 50,000 of it were ever produced. As for the number of games released, well, it never reached double digits, though admittedly they were high quality productions.
Happily, you can now find out for yourselves by acquiring this impressive Entex Adventurevision via eBay. It comes with 3 games (and 2 game boxes) including the horizontally scrolling Super Cobra and them intriguing Turtles. Seller ships only within the US I'm afraid.

I know that the Commodore Vic 20 tape of Ultima Escape from Mt. Drash is ridiculously rare and that boxed copies of it are practically impossible to own, but a starting bid of 2500$ for a tape and a manual without a box do seem quite steep. I mean the tape isn't in such a hot condition anyway... Still, incredibly rich Sierra and Origin collectors should look no further than this very Ultima Escape from Mt. Drash link. It's on eBay, it is.
Oh, and for those wondering, no, Richard Garriott did not create this Ultima title. Actually, he wasn't even aware of its existence for quite a few years since the game was published. Interesting, eh? Well, you can find more about this most obscure of games here, here, here and here.

I could easily sit all day and post pictures of Infocom boxes, but, well, that would get tiring, wouldn't it? That's why I'll simply point you to this pretty excellent Leather Goddesses of Phobos eBay auction. The box is complete, even sporting that 3D comic and 3D glasses Infocom crammed inside, looks to be in great condition and the scratch 'n' sniff has neither been scratched or sniffed. This is the Commodore 64 version of the game and the seller ships worldwide.

Haven't seen one of those Sega MegaDrive/PC hybrids by Amstrad for quite some time, so I guess they are getting rarer and -apparently- much more expensive, as this particular Amstrad Sega Mega PC comes with a Buy It Now price of £175.00. And you'll have to get to Chesterfield, UK to get it, but still. It's a lovely little failed oddity, isn't it?
The Mega PC is after all both a proper 386SX PC and a fully functioning Sega MegaDrive crammed into one desktop box and sharing a monitor. This particular one seems to be in great shape and comes with a few interesting extras, including a copy of Windows 3.1. Sadly no games are included.
