I remember seeing one at auction in a lot and it had a nintendo logo where the atlas logo was supposed to be.

I actually asked this in a different thread. You could easily do it I think if you shrunk the middle vb logo that is on the binding part. I don't have those skills but it seems like a semi simple task.

Trying to figure out ballpark value of promo pins

I just received 3 of these and I have no idea of current value so opinions would be welcomed. I found a thread that was 6 years old talking about them here and then there are two ebay listings that havent sold so I'm assuming both are high.

Do the overlays add anything? I'm asking from complete inexperience. They seem like something I would just choose not to use out of inconvenience of switching them.

I paid 185 shipped. I actually set an alarm to wake up at like 1:30 am to bid on it. Came with no overlays and 3 games and when it arrived it was very dirty. It works though and it's a very good price. I might have to do a flash cart I did buy a multicart that has 102 games arriving soon but there are a lot of homebrew games not on it.

I loved the Virtual Boy because I had one as a kid and it is such a unique fun experience to play it. I also have many other systems. Probably not as much as some of you, but way more than a normal person. While watching a show called the videogame years I learned of a really cool system called Vectrex. I had never heard of it before and it came out the year I was born and it looked so cool. So I started to research it and found a lot of parallels to the Virtual Boy: Tiny number of games, huge homebrew community, and NEEDS to be experienced on the actual system to appreciate it. So I bought one last week on ebay and it recently arrived. It is an amazingly cool system. Check it out if you haven't looked into one before.

Yeah I would be 100 percent down with ordering a kit. This is quite awesome. I'm sure the number of people here alone that would be interested would make it worthwhile. I'm sure the facebook group Virtual Boy Fans unite would get some more orders also since there are a bunch of people on there that aren't here. Heck I'd order two of them because I have a problem now. The problem has spread to Vectrex now too. At least I don't gamble or drink much.

Here is a pic of MOST of my VB collection. Not pictured is the link cable, headphones, 4 Virtual Boys, and a cart programmer on the way.
