Topic: Feasibility Of Labo Resale?

Quick note to admins : I'm not trying to sell a thing here. I have a question about a thing I may sell other places.

I've never even touched a Labo, but I'm trying to get in on some of that vomit action with the VR set. However, I'm not really big on owning "things" so I'm curious what the feasibility of buying a Labo VR set is and then using it for a bit before taking it all apart and putting it back in the box to sell to someone at a deep discount is. Once built and lightly used by adults, can the entire thing be put back into it's "start point?" If not, to what degree can it be deconstructed?

Nothing is glued or taped together in Labo, so if you gently pull out the tabs you can bring it back to a starting point, as long as you’re careful. You can also try selling it with the toy-cons already built as there may be people interested in playing the games, but not building the sets.

Just make sure bit not get any vomit on the cardboard

The Wii U is still the world's best console. Buy one today!

@Taya Ok, cool, sounds good!!

@embison Where I live that'd be a way to increase the value!

@kepsux Taya's reply is not 100% accurate. The VR goggles employ some cushioning stickers inside the slot that the Switch slides into. I don't know how long they'd retain their adhesiveness once removed from the goggles.

This honestly sounds like a bad idea.

While it's true that, very carefully, you might be able to deconstruct the Joy-Con, some of them (such as the Blaster) are very complex, so you probably wouldn't even know where to begin deconstructing them (building instructions are on the game cart itself, and only detail how to build, and not take apart. I mean, I suppose you could fast forward to the end of a build instruction, then reverse it for a sense of how to unbuild it?

Plus, as others have said, the stickers. Not only the cushioning stickers in the headset itself, but the other builds (such as the Blaster & Pinwheel in the starter set), have IR stickers (the Toy-Con can't work without these), and "smooth" stickers (I assume these reduce friction on the parts that rub together a lot), all of which may lose their adhesiveness.

While it may be possible to deconstruct them, they really don't expect you to, and has been mentioned, it might be better to try to sell the kit with the builds intact.

Switch - Blade Strangers
PS4 - Kingdom Hearts III, Tetris Effect (VR)

@RR529 Thanks for the insight here. If I can't sell it I'll just send @Taya a bill.

@kepsux Personally, now that I've finally experienced Labo for myself, if someone was selling an excellent condition deconstructed vehicle or variety kit I would certainly be interested. It seems perfectly possible to carefully pack it all back into the box. But I'd leave the stickers on - better to preserve their adhesiveness as no-one's missing out massively by not getting to apply the stickers themselves.
