    [​IMG] Introducing the Funchuk
    Mini-Nunchuk by Logic3
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Logic3 has announced a mini-nunchuk for the Nintendo Wii, the Funchuk.
    The Funchuk is available in 6 different colors and, though small, has every button normal nunchuk remotes do as well as the built-in motion accelerometer.

    That black or white one is the only one that warrants a purchase from me.

    Wow. Thats uhh... useless? And more or less... hideous. Whoever chose green as the joystick color for all the colored ones, NEEDS a nice concussion.

    I like them. Maybe the colour scheme doesn't really fit the sleek black and grey Wii theme, but they look like those mini-mice for notebooks. Too bad my hand is just too big for one of those [​IMG]

    That's... Really ugly [​IMG] And for the price you could also find an original Nunchuk, so why bother?

    They're useful if, by chance, you were a toddler.

    Is there really a demand for these?!

    I bought the colored Silicon cases from DX they look much nicer than these TACKY and very cheap ass PLASTIC looking.. (I know the real ones are plastic) but these just look like rejects from those toy fake Wii consoles or something!

    Wow, that much backlash?

    I actually really like the color schemes they set up. They really do convey that sense of "fun" in an alternate purchase. Excellent for kids as well.

    My only problem is that it might not match up with the "Utopian White" that the Wiimote (and Wii itself) boasts. But, then again, I've never really been one to compulsively color code a console setup. [​IMG]

    Excellent marketing and design, Factor3! Props!

    This is the shovelware version of accessories.

    Please don't support this.

    Somehow these nunchucks reminds me of Pikmin.

    First I thought the colour there on the picture with all nunchucks were pikmins. [​IMG]

    I don't know why people are going crazy about these. It's not that bad.

    yes relax people. more variety in accessories is good for wii. there needs to be 3rd party chucks/wands.

    the white and black do look fine, and i'm sure some people will prefer these smaller nunchucks.
    i would like to see the buttons though
