If they were duped, they may have a recourse through ebay.

So, I have a friend in Japan who owns a couple of vintage game stores, and also happens to be a huge VB fan. I asked him which game was more rare, VLab or VBowl. Here's his response: "I think Nintendo never announced production number of VB games. I guess minimum production number exists and both games were released not for making profit but both company need to fix [minimize] their loss. Therefore I think almost same numbers were made. J-Wing(VLab company) was free to sell VLab to individual customer like me [i.e., direct retail sales to customers]. On the other hand Athena (VBowling company) was much more strict [i.e., wholesale only - no direct retail sales to customers]. Taito (Space Invader company) and Bandai (Gundam Dimension War company) are big and much more strict than other 2 companies. So I guess they disposed their games like Atari E.T." So it looks like it was a toss-up between VLab and VBowl, in terms of sales. In terms of quality - well, that's a whole other issue!

There are 4 tiny bolts with hex heads located on the plate directly under the VB head unit. unscrew those and the VB will come off (don't let it fall while you're removing the bolts!). Then you'll have full access to the lock.

I have a mint CIB VBowl. It is rare, but I would have to guess that VLab is much more rare. It came out just as the VB was being yanked from retailers in Japan, and most were returned to the distributor. Besides, it's one crappy game, so it's not like anyone said, "you really need to buy this."

It's just a mailbox lock. Should be easy to replace the whole thing. Won't be the original key but...

Do we know if those are in-store yet? I see a few on ebay at inflated prices.

Interesting stuff. I think that's the first time I've seen the cost of the floor-mounted display - $900 total for the 2 parts.

And I love that they say that Duracell batteries "last 4 times longer than other batteries." What batteries would those be - used batteries?
