PLEASE NOTE: I sadly haven't been nearly as active here on GTZ as I used to be. FYI, I NO LONGER DO repairs or most system AV mods. I DO customize NES systems and create props from video games, so if there's something you're interested in please let me know smile

Backlit Mega Man 25th Anniversary NES
This system will go up for sale in JUNE 2013. To celebrate the Blue Bomber's anniversary I teamed up with CUSTOM NES GUY and we created this one-of-a-kind NES.

The Legend of Zelda NES case mod
A truly "one of a kind" system. This was featured on Kotaku on 1/17/12 - http://kotaku.com/5876717/this-zelda-nes-mod-is-ma...

Here's a fun Zelda tribute video on Youtube that shows the system as well - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7F2raBFDTtw

Again I teamed up with legendary console painter "CUSTOM NES GUY" of Youtube/Facebook to create this unique piece. He did the gold and silver, with red accents, paint job using all professional automotive paints and clear coat. We waited a full month between sets to help ensure a great finish. The Link character design lights up at night and more or less represents the original color palette. It required around 50 hours on labor on my end to create what you see below!

Air Zonk Duo RX case mod
In honor of the tiny wonder, this RX is customized with a cut out design that's back lit with yellow for the lightning bolt and clear/white for the rest. The shades and all cut edges were painted black. There's a region switch on the back of the console as well. Made for a member of the PCFX forums.

Skies of Arcadia Dreamcast case mod
This one was actually featured on Kotaku.com on 10/06/10 - http://kotaku.com/5656810/turn-off-the-lights-on-t...

Here's a Youtube video as well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9xZVNut-3Bw

I teamed up with Jayrod2 (of Youtube) to create this beauty. He did the amazing paint job using professional automotive paints and clear coat. I carved the design using only hand held tools. The blue LED lighting comes complete with an on/off switch on the back.
