Yume Penguin Monogatari for famicom - I very muck liked the previous Konami penguin games so I was very pleased to track this down
Jet Set Willy of hu card for msx - not as good as the tape version but a very nice curio
Air Sea battle for Atari 2600 - I always wanted this game at the time but they did not have it in stock @ argos so I ended up with superman

1) Ultima: Escape From Mount Drash for the Vic20. Simply referred to by my brother as "that game you spent 1,600 quid on" :lol:

2) Gauntlet III for the C64. One of the "holy grails" for the format (as mentioned in the C64 collecting guide), and I was lucky enough to acquire a copy from someone fairly well known in the C64 scene. I will always be grateful to him :)

3) GamesMaster golden joystick. Would be silly not to mention that ;)

1) My CFW PSP 1000

2) My hard modded Xbox 1

Both the above because they each are loaded with all the emu's and ROMS you could possibly imagine- so I can reach any retro title in an instant, either handheld or on the big telly!

3) I recently found my original Horizons tape for the speccy in a box of tapes I thought were just music- I binned all of my other Spectrum stuff about 20 years ago and regretted it since, so it was nice to find a survivor. The piece of retro goodness that I have officially owned the longest- 30 years.

I dont own anything particularly rare but a few highlights of my collection are:

Final Fantasy II edition Wonderswan - New condition and the box art is lovely. It helps that im a fanboy for old school Square stuff!

Klonoa PS1 rental copy - Not that big a deal i know, but its probably my favourite platformer and it introduced me to the rest of the series. I need more Namco. Sort it out!

Castlevania The New Generation - Again, another series im an absolute fanboy for. Excluding Pier Solar its definately my favourite piece in my Megadrive collection (which needs to be expanded!).
I asked for orange. It gave me lemon lime!
