Does anyone know anything about this? Weren't these only available in black?

Interesting.  As far as I know, the FB1 was indeed sold only in black.  My best guess is that these are preproduction samples, made of clear plastic as a way of testing the molds, but of course that's only a guess.

 

Where did these come from?

I'm afraid that this could set off a bidding war but it's up for sale on ShopGoodwill right now:

It's at a Goodwill store in Santa Rosa, CA.

 

I messaged Curt Vendel about it but he has yet to reply. So bid at your own risk. We aren't really sure where this thing came from.

Don't be afraid ... that's how the market decides what it is worth.

I put a bid on it because it looks neat. Problem is, inside it's the same Nintendo on a chip as the original. It has some passable imitations of Asteroids, Food Fight, and Solaris on it though.
