    Default Collection complete!

    ...well, sort of. This past weekend, I received Jack Bros. in the mail (courtesy of DogP) which finally completes my US Virtual Boy collection! Now I only need a complete Virtual Bowling and box to SD Gundam Dimension War (already got the cart, manual, and inserts) and my VB collection will be totally complete. Even got the 2 US demo carts and a couple store displays too. Take a look: (thanks to PunkoffGirl for hosting the image!)
    I don't know what will be next. Maybe a sealed US VB collection since I'm already halfway there. :P

    Holy crap! How much did you pay for some of those Japanese releases? They usually go for like $250-300 cart only on ebay...

    To be honest, the most I paid for a Virtual Boy cart in my collection was only $65 for Space Squash off of ebay. Everything else, I bought for less or traded for. A good chunck of the rare Japanese titles I own, I received in a trade from Rezrov (who's gotta have one of the nicest VB collections on the planet and is featured in this months Tips & Tricks) for a couple of ultra rare VB promotional items.

    I have a feeling that I'm not going to get Virtual Bowling for less than $65 though.

    Brilliant! Do I have your collection in our game room pages yet?

    That's just awesome to behold - and proof again that a collection can be completed outside of eBay prices if you're persistent.

    Congrats! If you don't mind me asking how much did that cost to finish?
    Somebody make me a "CGE 2k7 Attendee banner" so I don't have to use this lame text

    I was wondering who that was with all of that Vboy gold. He has everything. He has basically all of the store displays also! I hope you got a good deal on the Jack Bros. Ive been looking for that also.
