first let me start by saying hello to everyone. been a long time collector of 12 years or better but just recently got into virtual boy though. well for Christmas I got an amazing gift from my girlfriend. a vb counter top kiosk, this thing is amazing! but of course, it worked perfect for an hour and now only half the eye is working on the left. my question is, we're the kiosk head sets special? I know this is a fairly easy fix, but for my curiosity I'm wondering if there is a difference between kiosk and other models. it had wario land locked in the back of it, the game literally appeared brand new and never changed, but was also not a resale game which I thought was odd.

First of all, she sounds like an awesome girlfriend! Does she have a sister? Haha...

Anyway, as far as I know the consoles are exactly the same whether retail or kiosk unit in origin. The 'Not for Resale' Wario cart sounds typical for a store display though.

If you want the displays fixed permanently, I am based in the USA and do the solder repairs here. TheForce81 is in Europe and could probably help you if you live closer to him.

Nice item. Nice GF!

The retail VB units have a sticker (front, bottom right) with the 1-800 service center number, while the display units (most? all?) don't have it. Also, most (all?) of the display units have small screws holding the visor faceplate to the unit. Other than that, I'm not aware of any differences.

BTW: you may already know, but your unit is missing the promotional signs (printed on paper) that sat on each side - where the flat black pieces are. Those were covered by clear plastic sheets that snapped into place. (Can't tell if you have those or not.) If you can find someone with the same display, they may be willing to scan the signs, so you can print out your own copies.

That is some scans of the counter top display..might not QUITE fit, but you can print them so they can come close.

Those scans are from the floor model, and the countertop display. The "platform model" used ads of a different dimension. But as you note, they can probably be altered (digitally?) to fit. Quote:
