Rubengar has some stuff for sale in the section on this site. Just wanted to say..I've bought stuff from him..and it's top notch.

Good prices on all 3. If someone hasn't played space squash yet..i'd def. recommend it. Also, a japanese jack bros is a great way to play it and save some cash :P

(12) Non-Working Nintendo Virtual Boy Headsets Only
Buy-it-Now for $72.

The shipping cost is rather ridiculousness. $217.15

Otherwise, it would be a rather cheap way to get some units that need a few ribbon cable fixes. He listed them all as having display "issues".

Huh --- my page says $195 shipping. Still, it would be tempting to travel to Michigan to pick it up. Wonder how much a "non-rev" plane ticket would be?

Bet you're right, but they're all ribbon cable issues curable with a pinch of solder...

The shipping to my USA address is $36.61.

This would definitely be a great purchase for a USA resident who is confident in his soldering skills. You could easily resell each of these units for at least $40.00 each after you solder-fix them, especially if you advertise that they are solder-fixed units that should have no display problems ever afterwards. This would definitely be a great service to all of us VB fans who aren't so confident in our soldering skills.

He musta modified the shipping; it now says "$39", but it's sold.

My solder skills are excellent, been building stuff for years. Maybe some more will surface.

I bought this lot. I noticed it on eBay last night and noticed his description said ground shipping, but it was listed as USPS express (1 day). I sent him a note and he fixed it so I picked it up. If he wouldn't have I may have driven there myself - he's only a couple hours from me. As it was shipping was a little under $25 to my address.

Cool! So, are you planning to solder-fix each of them?

Yes, that's the plan. I actually received them Friday already and have the first two sets taken out. I had a bunch from before this lot even so have quite a few to do.

Not only cool but also extremely rare. I am highly confident that these pens were never mass produced for the market but rather were made on a very limited basis for certain employees of Nintendo, or maybe they were handed out at one of the few tradeshows where the Virtual Boy had an appearance. Either way, these almost never appear for sale online anywhere, that's for sure.
