Since not everyone is able to get a hold of the original VB cases, how are you storing your VB unit and games?

Mine is stored in a 5-Gallon rubbermaid container disassembled, along with all the games I have, the manuals, and accessories. It's not perfect but at least it keeps the dust off. I've been thinking of buying a padded camera bag large enough to hold everything.

Mine is stored in an old time projector case. It is perfect fit and can house 2 head units and even has a space built in for the stand.

Mine just sits on the kitchen table. I don't use the table for eating anyways, and it's nice to just sit down and play. It gets dusted it off with the rest of my things every one or two weeks.

Before, I had it in like 10 plastic bags and inside of a plastic storage bin to protect it. Now I have mine in a Blockbuster hardcase and keep it in my bedroom closet for easy access.

Unfortunately I can't keep the Virtual Boy out assembled and everything, it has to be put away most of the time. I use a generic carry bag with a lot of internal space. Before I just left bags of GB cartridges in there, now I put my two VB headsets there, along with my stand, games, AC adapter and AC tap/battery packs. It's a good fit, though the headsets sit on top of each other in a stack.

Heheh, '80s kid here too (I have a month left before the four-oh).

I have a couple of G&Ws, and I always buy up cute handhelds whenever I see them. I'm not a serious collector though - my games are all visibly used, and get played too. One of my younger friends made me laugh after she played Mario Bros G&W and said "how do you switch it off?".

I have very fond memories of a fog-drenched English school yard in winter, with every other kid there having a Game & Watch in his/her hands!
