That went quick :)

I messaged them to see if they're making any more.

Remember it / them being shown off in the forums here but can't recall what the final outcome was.

Another VB Box variant?

It doesn't seem to be a false-color image, as the cartridges in the same photo appear in their proper colors.

That's just a regular VB box with severe sunfade. You can still pick up the blue that has kept more colour.

Not trying to be a downer, but would feel bad for anyone spending money on a rare item.

Really? I've never seen red change to that color of blue from sunfade before.

The seller mentions that it's sun faded in the description.

本体外箱は日焼けやダメージがあります。

Which means something like "The box has sun fading and damage."

A mention of sunfade from the seller still doesn't help to explain why the box is uniformly a light blue in all of the places where it should be red. If the seller had this box when all of the places that should be red were red and then he saw these places turn blue over time, I would love to know what conditions he kept it in to produce such.

I would expect sunfade to cause all or some of the red places to turn an orangish color, as seen in the photo below, but sunfade causing all red places to be uniformly light blue baffles me.
