Bandai Playdia (boxed)

The Bandai Playdia, a 1994 CD-ROM console by Bandai aimed at kids, was a machine released exclusively in Japan. It only got games published by Bandai -usually based on popular manga and anime series- and effectively died in 1995, meaning that it too was quite a flop. Granted, an exotic and good-looking one, but still a flop. Now, despite being relatively hard to find in the West this boxed Bandai Playdia is (almost) decently priced and the seller ships worldwide.
