The NES Smurfs

Released exclusively in France where the Smurfs are very sensibly known as the Schtroumpfs (which is exactly what I grew up calling the blue little things myself), this very rare, very boxed Schtroumpfs NES pack has appeared on eBay for you to bid on. The NES console comes complete in its cartoon-flavoured box with the Schtroumpfs cartridge, manuals, leaflets, leads, two controllers, etc.

Robotron 2084 (Atari Lynx)

With the reputation of the handheld that could really tackle arcade ports, the Atari Lynx had no problem getting itself a truly impressive port of Eugene Jarvis' classic (and by then already retro) Robotron twin-stick shmup. Happily, you can still grab a lovely copy of the port via this Robotron 2084 (Atari Lynx) eBay auction. The game comes complete in its original box and seems to be in great condition.

Shadow of the Beast II (Amiga)

An update both graphically and in terms of gameplay to the stunning original, Shadow of the Beast II by Psygnosis was one of those games that defined the Amiga; at least in my mind. What's more, it came in a big, impressive, and rather lavish box. Just like the one you can bid on via this Shadow of the Beast II eBay auction; the game comes complete with its disks, manual, and of course t-shirt!

And another fantastic Speccy!

I generally do try and mix things up in Retro Treasures, but I just had to break my (never really revealed) posting rules in order to let you lovely vintage gaming people know about this pretty excellent ZX Spectrum eBay auction. This particular, beautiful Sinclair micro comes with a new membrane for its keyboard, and a very handy composite mod that will allow you to connect it to modern TVs.

The Spectrum on offer also comes a video cable, the Sinclair power supply, and big selection of boxed, complete games. Among them you'll find R-Type, Driller, Carrier Command, Cobra, Match Day II, Bomb Jack, Ikari Warriors, and Batman.

Ultima: Quest of the Avatar (NES)

I have never played any western RPG on Nintendo's venerable 8-bit console, but I can't help but be intrigued by this Ultima: Quest for the Avatar (NES) eBay auction. The copy on offer seems to be in great condition and comes complete in its box. As for the game itself, it is supposed to be a slightly different, slightly cut-down of the classic Quest of the Avatar CRPG which is definitely a good thing.

One Fine ZX Spectrum+

It may not look as sleek or unique as the original Speccy models, but the improved keyboard and the reset switch of the ZX Spectrum Plus more than make up for the micro's bulkier size. Other than that it's a lovely Sinclair 8-bit, does everything you'd expect it to, and you can grab one via this ZX Spectrum + eBay auction. The computer comes complete with power supply, leads, a Sony tape player, the official manual, a third party user guide, and a box of games and tapes.
