    however, i am using a NYKO battery pack for the 3ds, so i cannot apply the back stickers

    I shouldn't have clicked on this post... :(

    On the verge of buying a 3DS (XL/LL), not sure which. I love DQ and MH, and your 3DS looks so sexy with the sticker. Kinda don't like the XL/LL design after this thread and I've been planning to get the XL/LL specifically... Decisions, decisions...

    Well, I got my LL from Japan (that is why i am specifically calling it the LL)

    and my 3DS is a Canadian 3DS

    I like the LL better because it is much more comfortable to hold, and I really enjoy the bigger screen

    The 3DS while is much more portable....the battery life is less than satisfying

    I carry a back pack all the time so I dont mind the size, thats why I play with my LL much more (especially recently games like pokemon and BD:Fts offers English even on Japanese carts)

    As for stickers, there are tons to choose from on Taobao, alot of them replicates the look of special versions, though the cutting is not perfect....but hey, it only cost me about $4 each shipped

    I hear you, thanks for the insights! It's much appreciated. :)

    The reason I'm saying I'm getting a 3DS (XL/LL) is that I've yet to decide whether I want to import from Japan or not. I wouldn't have trouble finding games for either kind (local vs. import), but I'm just having a hard time deciding which I like better:

    XL/LL obviously has the better ergonomics as far as screen quality and handling goes. However, I like the "blocky" design of the 3DS. There's also the fact that accessories are more readily available for the 3DS, not XL/LL. Attachments/grips, screen protectors, skins, etc.

    They look nice. I have a question though, if you peel them off will they leave glue residue? I have never messed around with skins, stickers, and related things before.

    If they're anything like the many hundreds of thousands of skins for other devices like phones, no, it won't leave glue residue! It's reminiscent to 3M tape that sticks well if left intact, but peels off without leaving marks easily. Also, should there be any glue residue on a regular plastic or polycarbonate surface, you can always use a very small dab of isopropyl alcohol to wipe it clean. Works wonders with keyboards as well if you want to get rid of oil residue from fingers.

    Depends on the quality....I had a sweet looking Weed decal/sticker for my PSP 1001 looked sweet

    That DQ one looks really nice hoping the new 3DS has some better customization

    Get the 3ds xl its so perfect in your hand, after using the xl I don't know if I would ever go back to the vanilla 3ds the hand clawing and screen sizes are a big no for me, but to each his own :grog:

    Btw those stickers look amazing
