    I can't wait to see how much this goes for. That is one of the best mods I've seen.

    And if they add a copy of Puppy Linux running off a USB memory drive that would be the nerdiest thing I've seen in a long time.

    But seriously that is a very nice mod, it would have taken some serious time and effort to do that not to mention cost. That mod is up there with the Mac Mini in an old Marantz Dolby Pro Logic reciever. Awsome :D

    I would be embarassed as heck if I had that in my living room. I think it looks pretty crappy. I'm more for the stylish mods...like the wood mac set or something in sleek glass or something...way too kiddie or hard core rpg nerd fanboy for me

    The stock case is much more attractive. This one looks like its made out of faux leather or something similar, with a cheap badge glued to the side. Does that Wii ask to see your driver's license in addition to your credit card?

    are you ****ing ****ting me?

    That case looks NICE as hell, and people are gonna think are gonna be hella impressed.

    Besides, the only people who ARENT gonna like it are HardCore Gamers who dont feel emotion unless they run out of ammo in halo.

    They did a good job with the mod and everything, but I personally would just prefer the un-modded look. Oh well.

    It's like a little 5 dollar sword and shield combo from Toys R Us glued on a painted Wii. If that's your cup of tea I know plenty of kids stores that sell that stuff cheap.

    And I never run out of ammo in Halo :D

    Not my cup of tea, but I think it's a nice looking mod, especially if you are a big Zelda fan.

    the paint seems far too... bad.
    it seems like a good idea that went awry.

    Yea looks like they went a little overboard. Hope the paint can take the heat too.

    Looks tacky. It will no doubt fetch quite a bit off cash, but i wouldn't want it in my lounge.

    Someone mentioned glass .... heat resistant plexiglass maybe. Now that has potential.

    I wouldn't mind a Zelda mod. I've been hoping for an actual Zelda Wiimote, not some rubber skin. I'm not into the rough look though, but like others in this thread, it's just my opinion.

    Hahahaha..."and I never run out of ammo in Halo...."

    I'm indifferent to the mod (it looks like good work, but not my style), but that comment was hi-larious.

    have you ever in your life heard of something called an opinion?

    I think it's ugly.

    I saw the coolest stickers in a Nintendo magazine the other day. Just put the stickers on the Wii and the Motes and you have a classic Nintendo. They looked really sharp and worked well. Wish I had pics....that was a mod I might do. Make everything look old school...

    I agree with the people saying the Zelda one's ugly. :eek:

    This shot of the Zelda mod looks better to me.

    The close up on the texture bothered me with the other one.

    Personally, I wanted black for my Wii.
