5 Virtual boy games.. all japanese games.

mario clash

vertical force

t&e virtual golf

v. tetris

tobidase! panibon (panic bomber)

it also included a used plug in power adaptor wich i have no idea what is for, im guessing it lets American virtual boy ac adapters hook up to the adaptor into an australian power point, i live in australia these games were from australia

all for a price of 70 bucks and 15 dollars postage

was this a good deal?

also what is the price of these games each.

thanks

I was watching that auction myself,you won for approx. $48 US dollars so I think you got a pretty good deal.Going by what Play-Asia charges for these games new you saved about US $70 before shipping plus you got the AC Tap which costs about $15-$20 so it is an even better deal.I was wanting to bid on these myself as I am now working on completing my Jap game collection and I need a couple of these games, but the shipping to the USA was pretty steep.Also,the AC Tap you got with the games is for the US or Jap AC Adapter,nothing special about it to make it work in Australia.

well… I don’t think it’s a pretty good deal

all the games (except mario clash) are not more worth than 5€ (6 dollar)
Mario Clash: about 15€
Ac Tap without box: 10€

I think it’s okay but nothing unusual.

And where are you getting your price quotes from?Mario Clash alone sells for $50 NEW so the rest of the stuff is basically free,I don’t see how that is not a good deal,not spectacular,and I never said it was.

sorry i shouldnt of said ‘good deal’ but considering that i was going to buy vertical force japan version only one i could find one buy it now for like 35 bucks ive seen the other games on ebay for about 25 dollars each buy it now

and i have never seen mario clash japanese version on ebay before

i bought the u.s version of mario clash so im not sure wether i should sell this japanese version or just keep it

if i were to sell all these games at $19.99 each australian dollars, including postage each i would get $100 australian dollars

so im sure it aint a bad deal and the ac adapter tap thing seems useless then for me i may sell that..

thanks for all the comments guys and is v.tetris different to the u.s tetris game?

i”l probably keep them all if low on money may sell the mario clash one.. not sure thanks for all your comments.. so yeah probably nothing amazing but im new to the virtual boy business lol

OK.Show me where on Ebay I can get Mario Clash(JP) complete in the box in Mint condition for $18…seriously.

at the moment, there is no good example in, but it’s really possible!
The prices are very very low at the moment…

I’ve noticed that as well.Insmouse sold for $130+ a few weeks ago and recently only went for about $60,why is this?I picked the wrong time to sell off my collection.

the 5 games are for me for christmas anyway i just tell my dad what i wanna get and hel bid on it all them games were from australia so the price is different if you thought i might of been talking about a different currency..

yeah i remember seing insmouse with its box for like 60 or 70 then like 130 then changing very strange…

i wanna get space squash that was the first game i played on the VB emulator with the 3d red and blue effect ( i had 3d glasses) and i thought it was brilliant lol.

does anyone like my avatar i made cutting out a picture of the controller and head unit and combining it into a robot like thing on adobe photoshop.

Really nice avatar!!! But I would like it more if you remove the glow in the eyes :] Good work!

Thanks for the comment xjapan, yeah it was bassicaly a virtual boy head unit and the left eye of it was the text saying virtual boy and i did an effect and it made it blurry and smudged but looked good overal so i just put the same smudge for a right eye and they didnt match so the glow of the eye hid the mistake.. your probably right though the glow should go.

il probably make a better one with a neck as a stand or something lol and shoes as virtual boy head units or something

Good deals?

Possible to get them cheaper, but it’s okay 😉

Sorry for the tripple Post but…

just bought a few games 😀

Mario’s Tennis Display Version OVP 57€

Waterworld Sealed 80€

Golf Sealed 22€

Nester’s Funky Bowling Sealed 74€

Do you only collect sealed games? I could never do that, because I love to unwrap my new games 😉

No, but I like them 😀

I bought those games for about 500 yen each in Japan. That was a bit more than 3 euro at the time. Mario Clash was 1500 yen, about 10 euro.

So it isn’t a great deal.

Hi Murfo can we all nip over to Japan with you and pick up a few copies, shall we pop over there tonight, oh no I got a library book to return we’ll do it in the morning hey I’ll collect my dry cleaning on the way?
Sorry I was a little sarcastic there but you can’t really compare buying them in a shop in Japan (even if you are lucky enough to either be there or go there) to getting them online & delivered to Holland.
