I have a question concerning the inside of the box; will there be an area made to hold the cartridge?
Or will the prints be of the box "shell" only?


A very good question. I was wondering that as well. Also, if you are producing the inlays for the boxes (like you do for the SNES boxes) are you going to sell them separately?


The box inside will be like any other VB box, empty. I will try and make up some inlays, but I doubt I'll have any done any time soon. Is there a big interest for inlays?

Well, I would prefer buying the box with an inlay instead of buying an additional boxed game just for the inlay. It's not like all of us have piles of old VB boxes lying arround.

Thanks!


Hey Uncle Tusker,

I noticed that the top flap on your Bound High box, which you posted earlier on the forum, extends from the back of the box. I don't have an official Virtual Boy box with me as I write this at my workplace, but I am almost 100% sure that official Virtual Boy boxes have the top flap extending from the front of the box. Was this change unintentional? If so, there should still be sufficient time before the printing to make the top flap extend from the front of the box.

I am very confident that you could find a complete copy of Virtual League Baseball on Ebay for probably a total of $10.00 or less, including shipping to your country. This would not only come with an official white cardboard cartridge holder but it would also have the official precautions booklet and clear plastic wrap for the cart to make your Bound High cart, box, and manual combo "complete." You could then sell your extra Virtual League Baseball cart for a couple dollars on Ebay. This is definitely the route I'm taking, and I'm sure it would be much cheaper than getting a new, custom-made inlay.

For me it's not such much about the money but about the convenience. I don't want to buy a game just to resell it without the inlay. I would rather throw the Box away and donate the card to Richard then deal with the ebay shit. So, I would always prefer to get everything from one store even if I pay more.

Also, UncleTusker is already selling SNES inlays for 2$ on his site. I can't imagine why a VB inlay should be more complicated to produce. I guess he will just do it if there are enough people wanting one.

I would think he would have to make the 'die' to cut out the insert. Although it wouldn't be hard..the first one will take some time. After that, it would prob be fairly easy. Also, with just a run of 50 boxes or so...you would think the profit margin on this is very small..if it's there at all. This bound high combo pack might just be an experiment to see if it's worth it for him to make boxes for the virtual boy at all.

Yeah, I get that. It all depends on how big the request for inlays is. That's why I'm saying that I want one. Also, he was talking about making Boxes for the Homebrews. I think it would be good for the com community to have complete HQ Boxes available. Could even motivate Homebrewers to polish their games to a more product like quality.

Thanks for your concern on this! I double checked the Galactic Pinball box I have and it opens from the front like I have shown. Looking on ebay I can't find one that opens the other way.
