Back in the mists of time when Sinclair launched the venerable (and now highly collectible) ZX80 computer, you could save a few pounds on the asking price by grabbing it in kit form and assembling it yourself. Interestingly, you can still grab one of the few ZX80s that have remained unassembled via this ZX80 (KIT) eBay auction.
The kit is complete and filled with all the stuff you need to make your very own retro PC, but the seller is only shipping within the
UK European Union.

Having sold an estimated 3 million consoles, Mattel didn't set the gaming world on fire with its 8-bit Intellivision console, but it provided us with an excellent, powerful for its time and fairly successful game machine that has aged gracefully.
Also, you can grab one via this lovely Mattel Intellivision eBay auction. The console is fully working and seems to be in excellent condition. What's more, it comes in its original box with poly inserts, cables and five games.

The real Super Mario Bros. 2, the Japanese version of the game, is looking especially lovely coming on a disk; you know, for the Famicom Disk System. Happily, you can own one of said disks by bidding on this Super Mario Brothers 2 eBay auction. The game comes in its case and, truth be said, a Famicom with its Disk System would come in incredibly handy in enjoying this.
Seller is shipping to the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia.

Unlike Doom, Loom is a truly beautiful game that does unique things with the point-and-click adventure formula and hasn't aged a single day. It's as stunning, touching and intriguing as the day it was released and you can still grab it complete in its original, big box via this Loom (PC) eBay auction.
You'll be bidding on the talkie/CD-ROM version of the game for MS-DOS, mind you, that comes with a sealed copy of the Loom Audio Drama on a second CD. Also included in the box are the game CD, the Book of Patterns, the manual and a quickstart guide.

The Amiga 600 is a lovingly compact version of the A500+ and thus a brilliant little 16-bit micro that can still pull off some impressive audiovisual tricks. This particular Amiga 600 currently up for auction on eBay, will probably end up with a very modest price and still come complete with several cover disks, a mouse, leads and three games: Civilization, Dune II and Black Crypt.
The computer is fully tested and working. Seller ships only within the United Kingdom.

Super Mario Bros. 3, arguably the most important Mario game ever, is much more than a stunningly brilliant 8-bit platformer. It's the game that cemented Mario's legend, made Nintendo's Entrtainment System a huge success and defined console gaming well into the '90s. It is also available, sealed, factory packed and in excellent condition via this Super Mario Bros. 3 (NES) eBay auction.

I always adored the adventures Dynamix published with the help of Sierra and the endearingly cliched Heart of China has always been a firm favourite of mine. I loved its atmosphere, graphics, rather silly plot and even the puzzles, but never played the 16-color EGA version.
Anyway, if you want to own a complete and lavishly boxed version of the game, there's a lovely copy of Heart of China (MS-DOS) for EGA, CGA and other less colourful graphics cards. It comes complete in its box with all the 3.5" disks and the ton of documentation that originally accompanied it.
Seller ships (almost) worldwide.
Released in 1994 exclusively in Japan, the NEC PC-FX was a lovely CD-based console that looked like a computer and did many thing well, but failed to do 3D graphics properly. It is no surprise then that it never set the world on fire and got less than 100 games published for it. Then again if sleek 2D graphics, true colour, 2D effects and FMV video are your thing, you'll love it.
Handily, you can grab a sensibly priced NEC PC-FX console off of eBay. It's fully working and comes in its original box complete with poly inserts and two controllers. Seller ships worldwide with odd exception of Russia and Italy.

Flashback: The Quest for Identity, Delphine's stunning action adventure that defined the early to mid '90s, received a rather excellent port for the Atari Jaguar that's smoother, more colourful, richer in content and better sounding than any of its 16-bit siblings. It also happen to be a port you can grab via this Flashback (Jaguar) eBay auction.
The game comes in its box complete with cartridge and manual and seems to be in a very good condition indeed. Seller ships worldwide.

Designed as the hobbyist, home personal computer that could do gaming and take on the 8-bit micros, the IBM PC Jr. was a lovable failure. Then again, it was a failure that gave birth to the very first King's Quest and came with the then impressive EGA graphics card, a decent sound chip, floppy drive, cartridge ports and enough RAM to run most MS-DOS applications.
Despite the first IBM PC Jr. retailing at around $1300 back in 1983, you can grab this particular, working IBM PC Jr. via eBay auction for much cheaper. The PC comes with keyboard, color monitor, its cables and all the storage gear you might ever need. Seller ships worldwide.
