Oh wow that's actually not too far away from me.

Wonder if he'd let me come inspect, then I'll offer him a 20 for it

I had also been taking a look at that space invader listing and found it quite odd that they put producer: rare

It takes some time to being able to spot what is fake and what is not. But good to see the points like same on japanese boxes do have the same design on top and the bottom

If you added the Virtual Boy to camera mount you could totally use this.

Heh... well, technically it is likely very brand new, as in all contents could have been made within the last couple of months or so. ;-)

You are correct. The Japanese boxes do not have those folded flaps/cross folding on the bottom. Also, not just the box but the cartridge and manual are likely repros too. The seller states it is "brand new" which it clearly isn't with it having a repro box, thus providing no reason to believe that the rest of the contents are genuine.

And this is also a repro box, isn?t it? I once learned here that the japanese original boxes look on the bottom side the same as on the top side. Only the US-boxes have the ?cross folding? at the bottom. I hope I?m right here...

A similar deceit has been posted before, but I want to post another case here.

A "brand new" allegedly complete-in-box copy of Space Invaders Virtual Collection is listed here:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Space-Invader ... e98821:g:G00AAOSwCFBen3wU

Both the listing's price for the game as well as the description in the listing would lend one to think that everything about it is genuine. Nevertheless, the pics in the auction clearly show visible folded flaps on the bottom of the box, similar to what the North American Virtual Boy games had (pics attached).

A genuine Japanese Space Invaders Virtual Collection box has no such folded flaps, as shown here:

Ha, I'm sure I've come across that auction before. It will forever be preserved on Yahoo Auctions Japan.
