I assume you saw this, tho it doesn't show how to disassemble it.

Interesting. Don't think my case has that. How big is it? Where does it go? What kind of paper/adhesive are you using?

I don't think you can find Spy Hunter or Defender on the WalMart site using ANY keywords, including the exact title they use on their site - "Games Spy Hunter Mini Arcade Game" and "Games Defender Mini Arcade Game". But if you use the UPC to search, they come up:
Spy Hunter: 885561096408
Defender: 885561096026

My case has something Iíve never seen on any other VB Blockbuster case - itís a metal plate around the handle thatís designed so that, when you pull up on the handle, it locks in place against the case, and two ďlipsĒ grab the ridges in the case, preventing it from falling open. This was clearly a back-up to prevent disaster if someone went to pick up the case without snapping it closed. The only downside is that the handle wonít fold down far with it in place, so I usually remove it. I just put it back on for these pics.

Well, there have certainly been more than 2 on ebay, so I'd chalk that up to hyperbole. (I also own one.)

Not sure why "Sega" is in the title, other than to try to garner more views.

Because it was one of the first releases, before it was clear the system was going to bomb, and they WAY over-produced them. Then nobody bought it because it wasn't even one of the better VB games. So there are tons of them that were never opened.

Unfortunately, the videogame hobby is filled with unscrupulous people. Years ago, I sold a very rare Dreamcast prototype game on ebay. It required a special DC boot disc, which went with it in the auction. WIthout the boot disc, it was pretty much worthless. A guy bought it, then wrote to me a couple of days after he received it to plead that he couldn't really afford it, and asked me to let him return it for a refund. He was relentless. But I knew the guy's rep - he had clearly copied it, and was trying to defraud me. I declined.

He later listed the game on ebay, but wasn't including the boot disc, and failed to mention that the game woudn't run without it. What a sleazebag.

Unfortunately, too many of us have stories like that.

In all the years I've been collecting VB stuff (since it was released), I've never seen this.
