I'm not sure what the going rate is these days, but (having just looked it up) I see I paid €100 for mine (inc. shipping).

Hey excellent stuff. I've seen/enjoyed some of your videos before but never realised you'd covered the VB.

If you pick up a flashboy in the future, make sure you give Bound High! a go.

The system won't show anything onscreen without a game inserted. Can you hear a faint humming though?

I got mine new from Telegames back in the 90's. These days your best bet is probably eBay as no website seems to have them.

I just wish the eBay auction expressed more of what the game actually is. It's so vague that and the listing looks like it was a retail game that no one knows about, and that is the only part that bugs me. He even filled in the MPN and UPC.

To be fair those have been grabbed off the back of the box. The seller's also put a release date of "2013", which whilst incorrect should clue people in that this isn't something from back in the day.

This is something that comes up a lot whenever something like this or a Bound High repro turns up on eBay and I think it could be avoided by not making the boxes look like they're from the mid-90's.
Even if someone really wants to use that hideous NA boxart template, just stick the correct date on (2012, 2015 or whatever) rather than 1995.

Fascinating article. Learned a lot of new information.
I've always wished the VB had a Battlezone-type game, so it was interesting to read about the Private Eye tank demo they created.

I don't *think* this has been shown before. I found it around the time of the VB's birthday, tweeted it and then forgot to post here.
Anyway, a short piece on the FaxView from the June 1996 issue of Popular Mechanics:
