Man, what a great thread. All the designs are great, I'd give Skyone the award for pure creativity, but I have to say, G-Force's looks the sweetest. Does it actually function?

Daylight.. but it's a crappy day and I can't get good lighting, so here's another detail shot.

dark lord If I may amke a suggestion, take your star and select and trim them down (if you have already bought really small buttons GREAT!)

But place them to the upper right of the D-pad, there seems to be the most outta-the-way place for them to still be functional
I refuse to dignify myself with an intelligent and witty signature

Why do I have a feeling that Dark Lord is left handed?

Thanks in advance. xP

Bondo is a material that is usually used for auto-body fixing up, to fill gaps and holes. It's basically just a putty consisting of two parts, the putty and the red hardener.

Dudex77: I think that he messed up the Z button hole, so he decided that the L button wasn't important, and wired the Z button up to the L button.

Glad I thought of it! :P

I was staring at the light blue N64 controller wondering what was different and unique other than it needs a bit of sanding and the Z button was missing. Then I realised what the difference was. Nice idea!

G-force is the king of tiny NES things.

As for the rest, equally unique and awesome, but it's hard to decide when they aren't next to each other.

We do need a poll and new thread for the entries, and this will happen in a few days (I'll give you guys some days to get your acts together, like Triton and his 1337 camera losing skills, and Skyone's lack of a "nun" connection on his chucks.

Who thinks the contestants should choose their top 2 pictures, resize them to roughly 250-350 pixels, and in the new thread their submissions will be as follows, in one post for easy viewing. (For an easier poll decision)

Code: Select all

__________   __________
PRETTY    |   PRETTY    |
TRITON    |   TRITON    |
  #1      |     #2      |
__________|   __________| 

PRETTY    Pretty 
G-force    G-force
#1          #2
Hey, sup?

Paint isn't done yet, that's just the primer. I had a lot of other, much cooler ideas, but I knew I wouldn't have time for them, so I went with this.
