I could have put this in the Noteworthy Auctions thread, but decided this is an odd enough item to give it its own thread. Check out this auction...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 1&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT

In the past 4-5 years, this is only the second hard shell case I have seen like this on Ebay. It's made by a company called Travel Master and it's clearly for the virtual Boy. Aside form not having the VB sticker on it, it looks EXACTLY like the Blockbuster case. Only, it appears that the usual VB sticker wouldn't even fit. I'd venture to guess that they probably made the Blockbuster ones as well. Does anyone have any more info on these things? I wouldn't think they would have been produced for the open market, but I could be wrong. Maybe they were another one of those items that didn't quite make it to the shelf before the VB was pulled off. I decided I wanted it, so I bid/won the auction. I could use another case for one of my extra units anyway. I'll post some close-up pictures as soon as I get it in the mail.

No, it IS a vb case. The last one I saw on ebay looked exactly the same as this and had better pictures. Anyway, if it is not exactly as described, I can always give negative feedback and request a refund. :) I'm quite certain this is no scam. As I said, I'll post pictures when I get it.

I don't know whats worse, the fact that there is a hardcase version I never knew about, or the fact you got it for $20.

...Oh well, nice find! :vbsmile:

"Hey Bill...when did you join this forum? "


I have posted here off and on for the past couple of years. I was using the handle "Sir William" for a while. I decided to stick with Opeth since I use that name on other forums. I'll send some pics as soon as I can :D

LBA- Yeah, the last one I saw go up sold for a low amount as well. I'm guessing because more people like the one from Block Buster better due to the actual VB sticker on it. To me, this one seems like more of an odd ball item.

Hey KR155E, I am emailing you some nice pics of this case right now. They are high res pics, but feel free to resize them and use them on your site. The pics are so good, it may give you a reason to update :-P

Ok, nevermind. I tried to email them to krisse@vr32.de, but it didn't work. I got some error message back. Perhaps the file size is too large?
