Cool, just didn't want to hijack your thread is all.

I am very interested in seeing this other display.


Well.. here it is! :)

It's smaller than the North American Platform display and the Japanese countertop because it's baseless, and only uses a single dangling panel to introduce and instruct you on how to operate a Virtual Boy. It even includes its own set of security braces and chains to secure the display.

Very cool, even though it's super basic. Never known about that one. What else have you been hiding from us? =P

So are those braces supposed to be screwed directly into a table top?

That's pretty neat!I'm assuming that chain would just thread through the legs where the plastic braces kind of make a "hole" in the stand and then it would be bolted down to something?

Thanks for sharing!

XD

Nooo, I would never hide anything from you guys. The whole reason I became a member here was so I can share my entire Virtual Boy experience with people that share the same passion for it as I do. But there's just so much VB going on in my head on a daily that once in a while I'll forget to post something that I've been meaning to. But you can bet I'll post it once I remember what it was that I wanted to post :)

Your guesses are as good as mine, for unfortunately, these pictures are from an ebay listing that I lost out on a few years ago. It vanished before I could load the funds to my PayPal. But at least I had taken these screenshots before they were erased from ebay's history. I can also provide a screenshot of the seller's description of the display below.

But ey, you win some and lose some, right?

Right?! :(

I actually have the keychain display card, but I didn't know that it came with the braces and chain to hold down the system on display.

Nice! That thing is rare as hell!

I've seen it before twice in my early years of VB collecting, but both times were just the display card only. I had no idea it was part of an actual store display until I saw the above pictures from ebay.

I honestly wasn't even sure if the thing was official. It seriously looks like somebody just took the two inserts from a Platform Display and made a keychain card out of them. With this new light, I guess I will now add this item to my collection page.

...

After pulling out the inserts of my platform display and comparing them more closely with the prints used for the keychain display card, I now notice that a much thicker stock of paper was used when making the two-sided VB display card with keychain. So while it does appear that the display card is two platform display inserts stuck together, each one is on a piece of paper that might be two to three times thicker than the paper used for the platform display inserts. Each platform display insert is rather flimsy, while the keychain card is very sturdy.

Can you imagine the confusion consumers had when they read that first step to operate this VB display... "adjust headset height; slide up or down for your eye level", they must've been like WTF?! I wonder if any actually grabbed the head unit and stand then tried raising it up like a tripod? :D

I appreciate this info, thanks! :)
