Pretty sure if Uncle Tusk sees this he's going to be very, very aware that people are asking about restocks, dudes. You can say something else now lol.

Yeah, VB prototypes come up very rarely. There's not a whole lot to go on for them. Except that one guy who wants a couple thousand for a V Baseball, but that's a bit absurd.


Yeah and that guy openly admits that he knows nothing about VB protos or collecting, he even came to me for info and advice on NintendoAge. His reasoning for pricing it the way he did was that he figured it belonged in about the same price range as a mid-range TurboGrafx 16 prototype (spoiler alert: it doesn't) based solely on the relative obscurity of the systems.

This isn't "the going price", it's a wild guess from a seller with the hopes that some collector with more money than sense will take the bait (and if someone actually did take the bait at that price, THEN we could recognize it as the going/selling rate for VB protos).

Wow,searching for this since my first VB,very rare...I love the VB sign.
This sign is new and in perfect condition but the price....
crazy...


Yeah that price is hilarious. It's just the topper for the demo kiosk, and the demo kiosk probably sells for less than he has this sign up for lol.

Funny how the box is so small, I wonder what stage the design was at for them to make a box so small. Maybe just the size of a headset, which may have been intended to be on a headband at the time? It's definitely way too small to accommodate a headset and stand, that's for sure lol.

Quick heads-up: Kevin's email address link in the OP includes a period at the end, which will be included in the address and prevent the email from sending. If you want to successfully email Kevin after clicking the link in the OP, delete that period! :D

How do you know it's a fake box? Asking to avoid getting scammed myself...


Very easily! Just have a look at the flap on the very bottom of the box. It's folded in the same manner as the North American releases. Just compare this very copy with any other copy online and you'll see what I mean.


It would be a good practice to report these listings for counterfeit items (I just did :)), to help others from being duped out of $$.

Yep, and worse yet, I know of at least collector who didn’t do his homework and got duped into buying “Virtual Bowling” :/
