The person who baught that Debugger and Video boy on yahoo is basicially now in posession of a Space World Prototype Head Unit. Check the pictures. One of the two head units is dark indigo and the eye shade is also prototype material. The Speaker also miss the rubber.
Remarkeble is the very low price considering whats on the table.

Extremely good price. If I had an extra few thousand kicking around I definitely would have been bidding on that.

Not putting down the VB but was it really that insanely low? The system thanks to a mix of media hounding and then the perpetuated lie since that it causes migraines and blindness it has a rep. People either figured you'll get hurt, or it sucks, perhaps both so it's either ignored, still mocked, or forgotten. That could easily affect the price vs it being a cooler hip machine to poach rarities from.

Based though on actual scarcity value given how badly the system sold and got the plug pulled a bit earlier than deserved I would agree it's low.

It's a good price because of everything that's there. That's a nice package deal someone got, especially because this stuff is hard to come by.

Beware! It's a reproduction box. The seller is claiming that it's a brand new game that's never been opened. Looks like he sold at least one of these already.

How do you know it's a fake box? Asking to avoid getting scammed myself...

Very easily! Just have a look at the flap on the very bottom of the box. It's folded in the same manner as the North American releases. Just compare this very copy with any other copy online and you'll see what I mean.

It would be a good practice to report these listings for counterfeit items (I just did :)), to help others from being duped out of $$.

Holy shit. I didn't even realize till you made me go look that the Japanese boxes fold the same on top and bottom. O_O
Years of collecting VB games and never knew this...
Feel a bit like an idiot. :D

Yeah everyone should report listings like this. I would, but it's US shipping only, and being in Canada and eBay changing things so it flat out doesn't seem to let me see items that don't ship here. Everyone with a US ebay, though, please report this listing!

Repros like this are awful, it just pisses me right off that people are willing to put all sorts of effort into ripping other people off. I want to give that person a good smack upside the head.
