what proof can you offer to back up that claim?

Hi tegu,

Can you please provide the serial number, which is located on the bottom of the Virtual Boy head unit?

Can’t prove it 100% – But by the quality of the unit, the foam in the case, and the amount of games it speaks for itself!

when the vb units sold at my local blockbuster they all looked brand new. i was living in a small town with an over saturation of blockbusters, and well, the vb was obscure and not something kids wanted to rent. you really have no idea if that was a unit a manager took home, and extra unit, one that was hardly rented or what. claiming it is anything beyond “in excellent condition” is a bending of the truth, especially without proof.

Well, the serial number is certainly good enough proof that the unit was an original unit that was sent to a Blockbuster store for the purpose of being rented out, as the serial number falls within the range of the other Blockbuster VB units which appear on the Virtual Boy Serial Number Inventory list. As for the unit never being rented out, it would be nearly impossible to provide definite proof of such, but near mint condition would indeed show that it was handled by few individuals. If tegu knows the previous Blockbuster manager personally, and that previous manager says that it was never rented out to anybody, and this is combined with the already proven correct Serial Number as well as near mint condition which can be verified in person by close inspection, then I would say that all this is about as good of confirmation as anyone could ask for.

I would take the story of it not being a rental unit with a grain of salt. I can look past the booklets having stickers on them because they might have been rentals, but why did the case which im assuming was original to this unit have residue from a blockbuster sale sticker? If it was the managers personal unit and he just got rid of it, then why the sticker? Not that any of this really effects the value. It was just an observation that I had made.

I think it’s certainly possible that a manager had this one. The case’s label is very nice except for the sticker residue, which I wouldn’t expect from a rented-out unt. Most labels seem to be peeling off now, as if affixed with the same glue used on the display LEDs :). I bet that sticker was just a barcode they put on every item to scan if it was rented out, and this one never got the chance.

I must have missed the post where he said he knew him personally and could verify 100% that it was a manager owned unit. ;]

Thanks for all of the interest in the unit!
I _HEARD_ it was not rented out – but the games certainly were, and there is some writing on some of them – I can send additional pictures of the game backs for anyone interested!

Price drop – $300 for everything!

SOLD – PLEASE DELETE / LOCK
