Johan_1984 has 3 DR.MARIO (Virus) protos on EBAY. That may also be of interest!

Yes, he's a huge collector.
I think he's the same guy that bought a Super Mario Kart proto with differences like music.
He's not really of fan of releasing his protos, but I think he also is/was the owner of the SMB2 proto that did get leaked out.

I don't have 120 grand to spare right this second, but I do appreciate the halfway decent screenshots he took of the protos. Much better than the blurry ones we'd had before.

It's worth pointing out that I noticed some similarities to the GB Dr. Mario after this was released. The title screen is square and losing says "MISS!", like Virus.

Neat.

Group buy? Offer him a few grand and see where it goes?

I actually offered 4k and he countered with something like "12k is the least I could consider", making it slightly more reasonable.

$12,000 would buy over a ton of Cool Ranch Doritos. (Going by K-Mart prices because Walmart & Target won't sell them online, not accounting for shipping but allowing for tax, factoring from the 13.5oz size bags.)

So basically 4k each, then. That's a bit expensive, sadly. :(

Haha, seriously? He told me $14k was the lowest he'd go!

He did offer to throw in DKC3 at that price, "because Xkeeper wanted to document it."

That guy is going to be sitting on those protos a looong time at that price. Lots of more interesting things out there can be had for $4k a pop. Some of them are not even video games!! Wink

I dunno, maybe. I considered offering more for maybe two of them or etc, but figured he probably wanted to part with them all together.

Collecting is nice, but for that price I want to be sure I could turn around and sell them for what I paid or more, and I'm not convinced with Dr Mario, even if it is first party with an icon in it.

And then I could own all the Dr Mario prototypes evil laugh har har har stuff balls!.
