Huge as Turrican and Super Turrican were in Europe, Super Turrican never managed to make it on the NES despite apparently being an essentially completed game. You can find -possibly even buy- all the proof you need over at this NES Super Turrican Prototype eBay auction. It's a NTSC version of Super Turrican on a 22 years old EPROM cartridge from SEIKA / Manfred Trenz for the Nintendo Entertainment System.
The thing is quite obviously extremely rare and thus expensive, though it does admittedly look rather impressive. Seller ships worldwide.

One of the few games to take full advantage of the Amiga 1200 AGA chip, Super Stardust remains a graphically brilliant shoot-'em-up and a great take on the Asteroids formula. Oh, and you can grab it complete in its excellently preserved boxed and on fully working disks via this Super Stardust eBay auction.

We do have to admit that the Atari 5200, despite its disastrous controllers and many flaws, remains a luxuriant looking console and an important piece of gaming history. In the case of this Atari 5200 eBay auction it also remains complete in its box. Well, complete with controller, RF switch and power adapter, that is. Oh, and three games: Pole Position, Galaxian and Super Breakout.

Seeing the chess pieces move and kill each other was an almost magical experience and having Acorn's powerful RISC computer move them around was all the more impressive. So, uhm, chances are Archimedes owners will be more than happy to know they can grab a complete, boxed and finely preserved copy of Battle Chess via eBay for the Acorn 32-bit.
The auction will be over in a day and the seller's shipping worldwide.

We all know that Chip's Challenge is a brilliant puzzler that was made famous --mainly-- on the Atari Lynx; what Retro Collect just taught us though is that Chip's Challenge almost made it to the Nintendo Entertainment System too complete with new graphics and everything. And here, listed on eBay, is the unreleased Chip's Challenge NES Prototype to prove this. It's an EPROM card with the game's demo code and it's as rare a NES rarity as it could get.

Though the seller hasn't cataloged everything this Atari ST 520 eBay auction comes with, the classic 16-bit computer has been tested and comes in its original Discovery Pack box with polys, leads and manuals. A mouse and four boxed games (Stunt Car Racer, Speedball, 1st Division Manager, Manchester United Europe) are also included as are quite a lot of other disks too -- hopefully the ones that with the excellent Discovery Pack software bundle and thus goodies such as STOS and more games.
Seller ships to the UK, US, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Australia, Russia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand and China.
Geoff Crammond's Stunt Car Racer is a simple to grasp, tough to master, brilliantly designed and essentially unique arcade racer that remains as fun to play today as it was 20 years ago. And still looks lovely too; especially on the Amiga. This boxed, rare-ish, Kixx version of Stunt Car Racer currently being auctioned off over at eBay comes complete with disk and instructions and will run on any Amiga you might be lucky enough to own.
Seller ships only within Europe.

My all time favourite handheld (of which I believe own three), the Atari Lynx, can be grabbed via this Atari Lynx II eBay auction. The console is in good, working condition and comes with the original Lynx carrying case and three excellent games: Rampart, Zarlor Mercenary and Road Blasters.

I always thought that Amstrad's GX4000 console looked a bit like a space-ship, you know. A white, 1990 space-ship to be exact and one that houses the interestingly upgraded CPC+ innards and can do some pretty lovely things with its 8-bit hardware. Not that it got the games or support it deserved, but it remains a fun curio to own and collect for.
This particular Amstrad GX4000 currently being auctioned off at eBay, comes complete in its original box with two controllers, the required cables, polys, manual and Burnin' Rubber cartridge. Copies of Batman and World of Sports are also included.
Seller ships to the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia.

Ultima V: Warriors of Destiny is a classic RPG with a surprisingly clever plot and setting and also a wondrous game you can spend dozens of hours with.

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.
Seller ships to most of Europe, Australia, Russia, Japan, New Zealand and China.
