Now I had some time to show my Virtual Boy collection on video.

Here the video in standard 2D:

And here the same video in 3D (3D glasses required):

Nice collection! My wife also had a similar reaction when she realized how large my collection had become. I wasn't as cunning when it came to keeping it a secret. Very funny. Keep the videos coming!

And, for those of you without 3D glasses, you can cross your eyes like the Magic Eye books and still get the same effect. (=

I definitely would go with Nester's Funky Bowling. I never really liked Tetris of any sort, and 3D Tetris just gives me headaches. I've always enjoyed bowling in real life, so I think that has created a slight bias in gaming as well.

Oh no! I sure hope it's nothing serious. Please keep us posted and send him well wishes from me. I'll keep him in my prayers.

What a shame. The seller on the most recent auction doesn't say a single thing about it being a translated repro. Hard to tell if he/she is trying to mislead or simply doesn't know the difference. Seems difficult to imagine this would have already found its way into the hands of a secondary buyer, but I guess it's possible... Either way, a troubling sight. I'm just glad the large majority have stayed off the interweb/speculator market.

Wow, kudos to you for trying to hardwire everything with individual cables. Looks like quite a labor intensive repair thus far. If it's not working after all that, it seems like you might not be able to turn back. Your best bet might be finding new led/ribbons on eBay and having someone on here solder them for you...or you might also find some useful info on this thread if you'd like to try it yourself. DogP outlined some useful tips on post #170: http://www.planetvb.com/modules/newbb ... SC&type=&mode=0&start=160

My most expensive game was Virtual Lab, which I purchased just over a year ago through a Japanese proxy service. After currency conversions, proxy fees along with shipping/insurance, it cost me just over $600. That is still a decent price for that title considering its great condition and how rarely it shows up.

...It also helped that everyone else from this community was nice enough not to bid against me since they knew of my interest. :)

That makes it the single most expensive purchase in my entire collection.

Let me know if you're interested.


Sounds interesting. If I only had a VCR...

Could anyone take a nice high-res picture or scan? the label somehow?


I took a scan and attached it as a .pdf along with a lower resolution MSPaint file. I hope this helps!

Edit: You may need to do some slight color corrections or blend out the reflections of the hairline scratches. This was the best of several attempts.

Man, I'm going to need a new display case for all these things. Although, this will also get me that much closer to justifying an upsized display cabinet with the wife! Can't wait to add this to the collection!

Those are sweet! I think I just found the new logo for my VB binders. Those would also look pretty slick on a T-shirt... *cough* *cough*
