Been collecting Virtual Boy stuff for a few months now but as i’m in the UK it’s tough going and you have to be prepared to pay through the nose if you seriously wan’t to get them all.

I remember trying to get a VB in about 1999 from a “retro” shop in Blackpool England but we ended up getting seriously drunk and it slipped my mind….. For about 4 years .. yes it really was that good a drinking session!.

Anyway here’s what i’ve managed to get hold of with a bit of effort and a “money no object” approach – most of its in the last few weeks TBH.

Virtual Boy – US – MIB All Docs etc.
Virtual Boy – JAP – MIB All Docs etc.
Virtual Boy – US – + Stand Controller etc + UK Converted PSU/ACTAP (The one I play on).
Earphones – JAP – MIB

Mario Tennis – US – Inpack Version (unopened).
Mario Tennis – US – Display Only Version box.
Mario Tennis – JAP – MIB (Sealed).
Mario Tennis – JAP – MIB (Scruffy Box).

Jack Bros – US – MIB
Jack Bros – JAP – MIB

Waterworld – US – MIB (This game sucks more than the film)

Virtual Fishing – JAP – MIB

Space Squash – JAP – MIB (Well box isn’t 100% but not bad)

Space Invaders Virtual Collection – JAP – MIB

Virtual Bowling – JAP – MIB

(Yep Virtual Bowling cost alot – paid more than I should have but thats just tough i wans’t going to quibble and mess around for the sake of £100 or so – just don’t ask how much :o))

Basically being in the UK means I’m never going to get anything cheap as you will never find anything at all in second hand stores.

That’s it as of today but i’ve got the following incoming within the next few weeks as the arrangements have been made and a rough price agreed on.. Gundam condition dependant.

Virtual Lab – JAP – MIB (Sealed)
Insmouse No Yakata – JAP – MIB
SD Gundam Dimension War – JAP – (Condition not known – awaiting photos).

Other Stuff:
Nintendo power mags: 69 – 89 (a couple missing).
3D show Glasses x3

What I want:
Red Alarm DEMO.
Boxed Eyeshade.
Hard Carry Case (The BB one for my “play” version VB)
A dump of any proto game ;P
The Hong Kong Module (Multi Cart – if it Exists)
VB Cap
The promo cards.
Any other old tat thats got VB related stuff on it :o)

Well I don’t think I’ve done too bad in the time frame and living in the UK. I will never make any money from this but I like the system (I may sell the whole lot in the future but I suspect it would be at a loss), I can see why it failed but it’s just so damn cool anyway, some people have no taste – yet we suffer through their lack of vision. Not once has it affected my eyes but you notice how it misses a link up capability (yep i know it can link but it should have been available from day one – mario tennis etc)

Hopefully the proto’s will surface dumped onto carts for us to buy at some point. I fear this will not happen now as Nintendo seem to once again recognise that the system exists.


i got the special value pin now, i updated my collection!

we plan a new part in the community section. we would like to have a collection part in there. so everyone who thinks his collection is worthy to present them,and when i look around here some really does!, do some pics and write a few sentences about your collection and send it over to me. i would really appreciate that. i will do that with my collection on the weekend to give the one or other an example.

Finally got my copy of Gundam sorted out :-).

So i’ve not got much left to get game wise now.

Only Virtual Lab & Insmouse left and the two US DEMO carts
away from what many would class as a complete collection.
I’m very interested in dumping my rare games onto backup carts so i can play them ;-).

I’ve asked my supplier what he meant by a “sealed” copy of Vlab as the Jap versions were never sealed to begin with. If he means never opened then how the hell can u tell? – so i’m very reluctant to pay extra for “unopened” status on something you can’t prove.

Nice pack of playing cards on ebay but it wasn’t really desirable for me so I didn’t buy them. Yeah they had Vboy on em but they were not specific enough for me – maybe if the cards had diff chars on each or a diff game etc then i would have jumped at them.

As soon as I get hold of Vlab and Insmouse i’ll do some photos if you would like.




Got myself 2 virtual boys not complete in some way or another
but they both work and put together make one
not boxed

Want List=

Space Invaders
Space Squash

I would love to try out Virtual Bowling or SD Gundam, but it’s just WAY too much for one such as myself to spend on a game. I am not under the disillusion that the modern world will some how collapse, and VB games will replace modern forms of currency. Like that guy with the PEZ dispencer collection that was interviewed on the Daily Show on Comedy Central, lol. Therefor, I can’t justify spending that much.

Also, a word to all of you in the UK… I notice that the UK auctions on eBay are always much higher in price than the US auctions. But, if you check out many of the US ones, they will ship to the UK. I’m sure that even with the shipping costs, it would still be cheaper than buying ones from the UK.

FYI my email address is BC2412@aol.com if anyone wishes to email me about anything. You can also get me on AIM at BC2412.

UK prices are higher as he unit was never released here. If you import rare stuff you take the risk of high import duty – yes you can get away with it but not always – either way you take a risk doing this as if the item is lost or damaged then the max you can claim is £32 or something. Gunadam + Virtual Bowling are shockingly rare even abroad thus in the UK if you can even get hold of them then your lucky.

Currently i’ve got 2x full collections of all games (Including Demo carts) – if anyone in the UK want’s anything specific then i may be persuaded to part with a few copies of the rare stuff I have (Gundam,V bowling, Invaders etc). Note the copies of Gundam and Virtual Bowling I would part with are not mint box wise (9.5 and 8/10 respectivly) – but hey where else you gonna get them 🙂 – I’m keeping the absolute mint ones for myself i’m afraid ;-).

Been considering placing an entire collection for sale in the UK – just not got around to it yet – plus I think most of the fun is hunting down the collection and buying an already complete collection would have limited appeal.

Stuff i’m looking for is a mint box version of V lab, and possibly insmouse as the versions i have are not 100% box wise.
