Huge retro computer & console haul.

Yesterday I covered approx 500 miles to make two trips to collect a huge bounty of retro computers, consoles and software with RCM from a chap that was having a ‘small’ clear out.

On arrival, I was amazed at the sheer amount of stuff  he had and equally the quality and rarity and some of the items. There so much to sort though, including the 30 odd boxes of tapes, disks, cartridges, peripherals, oddities.

Here a short list of the hardware collected (software is going to take ages!)

Amstrad GX4000
Amstrad NC100
Amiga 1200

Sega Master System
Sega Saturn
Spectrum +2 (both versions)

ZX81 (x4)
Timex 1000
Atari Jaguar

Atari 65xe with tape deck

Squeezing the first lot into the car.

So much stuff and little time to go through it all.

Commodore A1200 Desktop Dynamite package…anyone for ‘Oscar’…no, thought not, me neither 😛

Quite a lot of the original packaging boxes were in lovely condition, like this 16k ram pack for the ZX81.

Atari Jaguar that looked like it had never be opened or used.

…and amongst the many boxes of games, some really nice ones like this Hungry Horace micro cart.

Although a very long day, was certainly worth it!

  1. Did you get a interface 2 to plug the Hungry Horace into? The speccy carts are not that common. I also have the Hungry Horace cart.

  2. No sure Andy, so much speccy stuff to go through so you never know. My favs have to the beautifully packaged Intellivision games box/carts and the masses of silver stickered Atari 7800 cartridges. Even found E.T. 🙂
