Post Anyone own a gameboy printer?

Sadly, I do not!

But when watching some old recorded movies I saw a commercial for something called the Gameboy Printer, now I had never heard of this though I was never a huge Nintendo fan at the time neither.

I'm tempted to buy one though it seems I would need to hunt down the paper and perhaps ink which can get costly $$$ Does anyone actually own one of these models? Would it be worth buying?

My neighbor friend when I was a kid had one. But neither of us had an original gameboy, we only had GameBoy Colors and GameBoy Advances. Couldn't get it to work for either. And I believe the GB Printer actually used thermal paper, so I don't think you have to worry about ink.

I have a gameboy printer, no gameboy though so I can't give you an honest review. Sorry about that. I picked it up at a yard sale just because it was dirt cheap and I'd never seen one. It came with 3 boxes of paper for it. The paper isn't expensive online and I don't see a place for ink so fox is most likely right that it is thermal paper (it's buried in my closet and I don't really want to check to be positive but pretty sure he's right.)

Yeah I still own my Game Boy printer with camera. I'm running out of paper though.

i have one. they are neat to own, but the printing isnt that great. they really are more of a novelty item. but if you come across one for cheap, i would recommend picking it up

I own one with the camera. I got it at my local game store for about $15. It also came with 3 rolls of extra paper.

I love retro games and would appreciate it if you check out my channel:

It doesn't get many views, but I'm working on getting up some good videos and regularly maintaining it.
