Yeah, it does look like a case that Blockbuster could have used for other consoles/systems.

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. ;-)

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:

I have to add this Yahoo! Auctions Japan one here:

https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/b403991566

I believe this seller has been posting and re-posting this rare Virtual Boy poster for at least 4 years now, maybe even a couple more. I'm wondering if anyone else can confirm the length.

As time goes on, the price only increases; it never decreases. I think I remember seeing it when it was around 85,000円.

To be sure, it is a very rare poster. In fact, it is the only one that I have ever seen of its kind for sale, since I joined VB collecting over 9 years ago. Still, no collector seems to want to pay the price for it, so it could be on Yahoo! Auctions Japan for many years to come.

Over 500$ for a small VB buckle (What a steal!)

They even shout out Planet VB in the description!


The seller is probably very right about the rarity, though. I wouldn't expect to see a black Virtual Boy key chain up for sale ever again.

Neat! Too bad he hasn't had much to add to the story, but it's cool that he responded to you about it.

For Dragon Hopper, I'd be satisfied if just the whole original story of the game got released. It was probably written all out at some point, and just getting those notes would be great.

I take it the other side looks precisely the same as this one?

Very nice! I wonder how many more Midway Classics there will be?

Yes, I have already had the Skee Ball in my collection for a while but I have not seen the Whac A Mole before. I'll keep my eyes open for one!
