Ran across while doing a price check on some Tiger LCD games.

A prototype of the 1992 Magic Johnson's Basketball Tiger LCD Game. The listing sold through Aug 08, 2012 for $499.99. According to the listing this pre-production handheld was autographed by Magic Johnson at a event for the games launch. This promotional copy of the game lacked any working electronics and was just a empty shell with the art and buttons glued into place.

Looking at it I gotta say that I actually prefer this prototype versions art work to what made it into the final production run. Though I like how they changed the buttons to match the Lakers purple and gold in the retail handheld.

From the listing:

Prototype of the 1992 Magic Johnson's Basketball Handheld Video Game. As you can see in the pictures there are no labels above the center 4 buttons that there would be on a production model, or any copyright information printed on the bottom of the cover under the 4 center buttons.

There are no electronics in the prototype (see pics) only the per-production front cover, game background, and simulation play screen. The buttons and screen are hot glued into place by Tiger to be taken out and promoted. This game was taken to the showroom in the Toy Building in New York City for the launch of Magic Johnson's game, which he attended and signed the game at the launch. Magic Johnson is shown in the Monday, February 10, 1992 edition of the New York Times (#48,872) being named MVP of the 1992 NBA All Star Game. This happened within days of the signing of this Tiger Electronics game.

Looks like it would make a nice, functional, center piece for you gameboy collection.

From the eBay listing:

You are bidding on an original Game Boy store demo kiosk. I believe the unit started appearing in stores at the debut of the Game Boy system. This came from a Toys R Us, I purchased it a couple of years ago from a friend who worked there. It has been in storage for a couple of years, but I pulled it out the other day and tested it, and it still works like it did when I got it. The kiosk was originally set up to demo an original Game Boy system, but the original Game Boy has been replaced with a silver (well-played) Game Boy Pocket and Super Mario Land 2. The decals on the front are advertising the Game Boy Pocket, however I believe the original decals are right underneath the Game Boy Pocket decals and it actually seems like you could remove the Pocket decals with some care if you wanted to display the original ones. The Pocket decals have some bubbling and wear but are still firmly applied to the plastic.
