Good point. Black is the most logical because it falls in line with the other connectors used for the system. I just don't want it to get lost in the sea of black cables I own. I think such a specialty cable deserves a color scheme equally as special... but I'm happy either way!


^^My thoughts exactly.
If there isn't any price difference and it isn't too much of a hassle, would it be possible to produce a few of the red connector/black cable color schemes to those that confirm the intention to purchase one, then make the rest black?

I'll try to find out about colors... I was just told that they could do different colors, no idea on cost. If it makes no difference to do half of them red, half of them black, I may just do that.

I'm interested too . Could you produce a link cable with box and instructions like the Flashboy?. If you do this , more VB collectors join to this project .

I could probably do a box/instructions, though the price is already more expensive than I'd like... I'd hate to make it out of reach for something superficial like that. Heh, and I'm not sure what "instructions" are needed for a link cable ;) .

I would also like to sell individual connectors in case anyone wants them for custom projects as well... no need to hack up a perfectly good cable just for the connector ;) .

Nintendo would probably throw in a safety & precautions booklet and Nintendo Power propaganda :)

No news, except that we're making really good progress on getting the model just right. The MFG seems ready to take on the project whenever we send him the file :) .

Oh... I guess I never mentioned this... but the MFG did say they could do part of the run in red and the other in black. So, I think I could do both if some of you prefer red.

I don't know the manufacturing time on these, but I'm under the impression that it's not extremely long. Hopefully we'll get a final model soon, then the MFG said they'd send me a connector to verify that I'm happy with it, then mfg the rest.

Also, any if artistic people would like to design a box for it, I'd certainly consider creating a box (and anyone that has made a box *ahem KR155E* ;) feel free to chime in on problems, etc). I've always wanted to try vacuum forming as well... that'd be pretty cool to make a clear plastic retail package, though a box is probably easier, and probably looks cooler in a VB collection.
