Here's a "Sega All Stars Wall Plate" I got on YJA a few years back. It's new and complete with the instructions and wall mount.

Here's a DC link cable. It is used but the in good condition and it is still in the original box. It's part number HKT-9500 and officially known as the "Dreamcast VS Cable".

I figured this could be considered VOOT memorabilia since VOOT is one of the few games that actually supports the link cable. Additionally, this particular link cable was provided by Sega to Activision to use during the development of the US DC version of VOOT. I received this as a gift from one of my coworkers shortly after the game was released. :)

This has become insanely rare.

Even more since people started buying these to build SD-loaders for Dreamcast.

This is definitey a VOOT Memorabilia :lol:

That is really quite sad to hear. :cry: It took a lot for me to acquire one. After they were initially released, they sold out immediately weren't available anywhere. I scoured the Internet for days with no luck. I finally gave up and emailed my coworker in the Activision Japan office to see if he knew where to get one, and he graciously offered to send me this one. I was ecstatic to finally get in on some cable versus action! :D

Eventually I acquired another one while on a business trip to Tokyo, which I believe I still have somewhere (the box has the price tag, ¥3,000 or so), but I won't forget the first one.

By a stroke of luck I came across some One Coin figures at a convention last weekend. I picked up Fei-Yen and Viper II (they had the Bal Bas Bow and one other...can't remember which), but I sadly didn't purchase those. I wish I had.


There's one thing that bugs me, though...

Image

....Viper's wings seem to be misassembled. I attempted to see if they rotated, but I ended up twisting one of them off in the process (A bit of superglue and a nail file fixed that, albeit with one wing being a bit tilted). Still, though, is there any way to fix this? If not I'll just leave it be. I tried switching the two pegs but then the arms get in the way. I love these figures, though. Considering how tiny they are they have some nice articulation.

Nice find! Unfortunately I don't have experience with these so I don't have any suggestions.

Good find! Shame these things aren't more available domestically (had to resort to getting mine off of Yahoo Japan! Auctions). I'd highly reccomend trying to track down the rest of these guys. The real fun starts when you get all of the different VRs together.
Image

As for the issue with the wings, the proper way to position the arms for the wings is to have the pegs bent at a 90 degree angle, as shown here:
Image
Also, I notice that you have the wings plugged into the opposite sides. When putting them on, remember that the green sensor is supposed to face the front, with the little winglet thing facing away (the side with the green shapes should also be facing towards the backpack).

Sonova...I think these have been somehow glued into the pegs. I can't remove them (remember, I twisted one off and the inner peg still wouldn't come loose even after being, well, broken) I noticed that with the ball joint on Fei-Yen's neck as well! The head poppsed off and the ball joint is there, but there's residue of dried glue around the joint so that it won't actually turn! I dunno why they would do that but considering that i also superglued the other piece back I find that to be a really lame situation,as I now can't actually fix the darned wings and remove them from the pegs. :( Oh well..

Wait, were the ones you bought pre-owned? If so, then the previous owners must have tried to tighten the joints with Super glue. Looks like they went with a little overboard with it, though. Sucks to hear what happened. :(

If you can, take some pics of the parts with the problems and post them on 4chan's /toy/ board. They're used to this kind of stuff, so they should be able to help.

Love the VOOT marquee! I've never seen any VOOT arcade parts for sale. :( Or a VOOT machine in person for that matter. Sad. Anyway, I guess it's about time I post my stuff...

Good stuff! One thing to note is that the "4x6" OST apparently is not a simple re-release of previous OSTs, and includes some previously unreleased tracks.
