Lucasfilm's Pipe Dream (Mac)

Essentially the US version of The Assembly Line's Pipe Mania, Pipe Dream is a lovely action puzzler that has you frantically connecting pipes and testing your mouse-hand dexterity. What's more, you can grab a complete, sealed and boxed copy of it for Mac via this Pipe Dream eBay auction.

Admittedly, this version looks way better than the 8-bit one I was playing and comes with an absolutely stunning cover by Steve Purcell of Sam & Max fame.

Seller ships to most places worldwide.

NES Control Deck

The Nintendo Entertainment System Control Deck, the one people tend to call NES Toaster and/or Top Loader, is a wonderful iteration of Nintendo's massively successful 8-bit console. Also one that can play unlicensed games and both US and Euro cartridges. Oh, and you can buy a boxed, new, sealed and thus unopened one via this NES Control Deck eBay auction.

Seller ships worldwide.

Acorn BBC Micro Model B

The BBC Micro, a huge hit in schools throughout Britain and a modestly popular computer throughout Europe, was one of the most powerful and versatile 8-bit micros of the '80s. Appropriately it was rather expensive too, though the winner of this BBC Micro eBay auction will most probably have to spend but a fraction of the original asking price.

The computer has been fully refurbished and apparently thoroughly tested and comes with two books -- the user guide and a simple little something on assembly. Seller ships worldwide.

Fully restored Amstrad CPC 6128

Still haven't managed to grab my very own CPC 6128, still can't imagine where I'd ever manage to set one up, but I still absolutely love this powerful, sleek 8-bit micro and its brilliant 3" disks. On the other hand, more than a few people would probably be more than eager to provide a home for this Amstrad CPC 6128 that recently appeared on eBay. Seller ships worldwide.

This particular 6128 has been fully restored and cleaned and apparently works perfectly. It comes with its original manual, the CP/M OS on a disk, a typing tutor utility and a joystick.
