So I pretty recently completed my Virtual Boy hardware-wise and would really like to be able to transport it in its own case. What case should I get?

I would look into building your own; perhaps some kind of premade hard case for DJ or other sensitive equipment, and then cut/assemble your own foam to fit the VB with its eye shroud, the stand, the controller, the AC adapter, a slot for a battery pack (so you can have one AC tap or battery pack installed in the controller, and then a spare battery pack), and a compartment for a stack of games.

You could track down one of the original Blockbuster rental cases, but they're expensive collectors' items at this point, and you'd probably have to redo the foam inside one anyway.

Myself and a couple of other people that I know of used this case

I'll try to grab some pics of mine. The foam is easy to customize.

If you have a larger collection there's always something like this too.

The one I got just days ago now came in a repurposed black hard plastic brief case with a thin foam pad on the bottom, upper part has a button in folder deal there with sections.

As it is, the system fits nicely in the bottom with the controller, battery box, and ac adapter kit too and the few boxes I got in there (system came with 3 games.)

I'm considering finding a piece of foam once I get a stand for it and just cutting it best I can so it doesn't shift around and can stay in there to keep dust out of it when not in use.

Optionally may still keep most on there, but the system near my desk to see it on the stand at times too. I figure if the old owner kept it in this case for 10-20 years, it's good enough to protect it for more with a little modification. And the nice thing is the loose carts would fit into that folder space that's divided off into 3 horizontal spaces which likely held pens and stuff originally. The games do slide into it well.
