I've still got an original in a somewhat knacked but original box in my garage. Wonder if it's worth anything?

My idea to put on Kickstarter is a large, black TV remote control
with a single big button that clicks to change the channel

I know very little about such stuff.

However my son-in-law and daughter have a VERY profitable business buying and selling computer games from this era - Australia is their largest market.
