Here are a couple auctions for the Hori TSEX. Mainly I'm interested in what the current going rate is for these things.

HORI TWIN STICK Xbox ホリ ツインスティック 検 バーチャロンStarted at ¥5,000. EDIT: Sold for ¥16,300.

XBOX360 ツインスティックEX☆箱説有☆バーチャロンコントローラStarted at ¥25,000. EDIT: Sold for that price.

This one is more interesting. Seller rrrcrm is offering some very old VOOT documentation with a starting bid of ¥3,500. I'll probably never see this again, but I haven't decided to put in a bid yet. It will probably end up being $70-80 after fees and shipping. EDIT: Sold at that price.

Moose, here's one that ends soon, only 10,000Yen so far:
http://page5.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/e130348993

Another TSEX that's been opened though, the Force sticks have a tamper resistant seal over one of the screws- 7,000Yen:
http://page8.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/h168075231

But, I actually bought my Force Sticks not long ago from eBay, for $535, free shipping by EMS Express though. I got mine for only $450 shipped though. I offered $500 and he accepted and got 10% off with an eBay coupon. Again, super quick shipping- received within 5 days of paying. Box was shipped great, even covered the original box, brand spanking new.

Seller k5a7z3u is offering a couple of Model 3 boards with VOOT Ver.5.2 ROMs. These should be upgradeable to Ver.5.4g if you can find the ROMs. Both start at ¥100.

電脳戦機 バーチャロン オラトリオタングラム 動作確認1 ver5.2 EDIT: Sold for ¥13,000.

Seller miti_kun12 has an auction for two Naomi boards with VOOT Ver.5.66 ROMs. Also included are the communications boards (seems to be not pictured), a Naomi GD-ROM manual (useless as Ver.5.66 is not on GD-ROM), a copy of the Ver.5.66 manual, in-strike cards for older VOOT versions, and copies of the instruction sheet for Ver.5.66. The initial bid is a hefty ¥35,000. I would have been tempted a few years ago when the exchange rate was more favorable, but today that is $445, and after shipping and fees will be approaching $600, which is way too much. EDIT: sold for that price.

If it doesn't sell and the seller relists at ¥20,000, I probably still wouldn't bid. I already own most of that stuff, and the Ver.5.66 manual (which I really want) is not even original. But it is a pretty nice kit to get a Ver.5.66 setup going.

Seller rrrcrm has a pair of handles that resemble those from OMG. I don't think they are actually OMG sticks, though. The starting bid is ¥3,500. EDIT: Sold for ¥3,500.

I haven't seen anything particularly interesting lately, which is too bad since the exchange rate has actually improved a little bit. Anyway, here is a set of DC Twin Sticks modded for Xbox 360 by africa2temjin. The starting bid is ¥12,900 ($147.36 at today's rate of ¥87.539/$1.00). EDIT: Sold at that price.

Here is an OMG Versus City panel from seller BlueEyes_Wolf, starting at ¥1,000. The condition looks pretty good. With OMG coming out soon as part of the Model 2 collection, this is your chance to build arcade perfect Twin Sticks specifically for OMG. EDIT: Sold for ¥9,600.

If you really wanted to build some custom Twin Sticks using the panel in the above auction, you can install them in the case from a Sega Saturn Virtua Stick Pro (HSS-0130) with little to no modification. This controller is made for Versus City panels, and the result would be a functional, high-quality controller.

[セガハード大百科] バーチャスティックプロ
stickpro.jpg
Virtua Stick Pro
The HSS-0130 is readily available on eBay and Yahoo! Japan Auctions. Unfortunately they are expensive due to the unfavorable exchange rate and high shipping costs. The cheapest on eBay is about $400 including shipping. You should be able to get a better deal on Yahoo! Japan Auctions. Even after fees and shipping, under $300 should be possible. Though at that price it might make more sense to buy a new, complete set of Twin Sticks from Hori instead of modding your own. But where's the fun in that?! 8-)

セガサターン バーチャスティックプロ HSS-0130 ジャンク - No box and listed as "junk", but the case looks fine. Starting price: ¥5,000. EDIT: Sold for ¥7,750.
SS セガサターン バーチャスティックプロ 【ジャンク扱い】 - No box, faded plastic, listed as "junk". Starting price: ¥1,000. EDIT: Sold for ¥4,100.
セガサターン専用 バーチャスティック プロ HSS-0130 - No box but looks good. Starting price: ¥1,000. EDIT: Sold for ¥8,050.
SS セガサターン バーチャスティックプロ HSS-0130 【美品】 - Boxed, but faded plastic. Reserve price: ¥16,800. EDIT: Did not sell.

africa2temjin has a set of Saturn Twin Sticks modded for Xbox 360. These are a little simpler than others from this seller in that sticks are mapped to D-Pad and ABXY instead of the analog sticks (so no extra buttons installed for ABXY). They are somewhat cheaper, starting at ¥8,900. EDIT: Sold at that price.

Apparently the search on YJA really sucks. If you search for "バーチャロン" (Virtual-On), it will not include auctions with "電脳戦機バーチャロン" (Dennou Senki Virtual-On). So I've probably been missing a ton of great auctions. :x

VOOT Ver.5.66 flyer, starting at ¥500.

That's annoying, thanks so much for teaching me something new. Maybe this affects all Japanese websites or google searches, not just Yahoo Japan Auctions. That's what scares me more, I wonder how many opportunities I may have passed up over the years for all sorts of Japanese merchandise?

I've been trying to test out various search terms on YJA now to figure out how it works, but haven't nailed it down yet. When I search for only バーチャロン it does seem that a few auctions with only 電脳戦機バーチャロン or 電脳戦記バーチャロン (and without plain バーチャロン listed in either the title or the listing's body) turn up. Yet others don't.

Yeah it is very annoying. I've noticed the YJA search wasn't very good before, but unfortunately didn't figure out the problem with Virtual-On search terms until yesterday. I guess I assumed my search was okay since I was searching for a less-specific term. Oh well, now I know.

Here's something I've never seen before. It's a pin that must have been included with the Sega Ages version of OMG (maybe a preorder bonus). It starts at ¥500. EDIT: Did not sell.

I haven't seen much of interest lately, which is a shame since the exchange rate has improved (closing in on ¥1 = $0.01). Here is an overpriced OMG T-Shirt. Starting price is ¥2,500 ($26.04 as of today).

It's a tough decision, but I'd suggest Xbox 360. You can play online, and besides VOOT you can also get VO4, or even OMG if you want. ;)

How about some keychains?! Here's an auction for OMG keychains and figures, plus some Fighting Vipers figures. The seller is brand0120 and the starting bid is a low ¥1,000.

Finally, something interesting: a VOOT Ver.5.66 control panel! The condition seems to be okay. The only obvious problem is the missing doors on the VMU slot. Opening bid is ¥5,000.
