Had mine since 96 clearance also. Still have the price tag on the box and got it for $25 brand spanking new. I wish I could go back in time and give myself money because If I had more money I would have bought like 4 of them and every game I could find.

Yup! I got everything as a set. The only thing it's missing is the full manual book. (I don't think that was included with any Blockbuster set, though.)

Niiiiice! And yeah, I don't think it was either. I got the Block Buster case myself and the instructions inside made it seem like the were trying to be a sort of digested replacement.

@ Raverrevolution
Holy crap! $25 brand new... that's like when I bought EarthBound (awesome game btw) for the SNES for only seven dollars brand new at Bust Buy... I feel the same and wish I bought them all!

Paid full MSRP launch. All my darn friends picked it up clearance a year later.

Wow, $30? What a steal! Is it in good shape?

I'm not terribly sure to be honest, it looks great to me but its only the 2nd VB I've seen in my entire life so I have nothing to compare it to. Its got a small nick on the left lens(not noticeable during play) and some scratches here and there but nothing disfiguring. As far as I can tell its in fantastic shape. I'm more then happy with it. :)

My ace wife bought mine for my 'cough' 40th in 2008.
Wanted one from 1995 when first heard of it but being in europe never got released so i never even saw one til about 5 years back. That was in a local shop but they never got it working so i never bought it, always wanted to play one though so was real pleased to get a boxed almost perfect condition JPN one, not looked back, love it.

@ VirtualJockey
Ahhh... well of course they would, wouldn't they? At least you got to be the first to experience all the glory that is VB though! ;)

@ HonkeyKong
Sounds like it is in pretty great shape then! That's pretty awesome I gotta say!

@ Hedgetrimmer
You sir, have an a wife with very excellent taste! Haha

Well, I did get one opportunity, but then I missed it and it was sold out. After that, I kinda forgot for a while because I got a Dreamcast. Plus I'm always low on cash. :P
