    Very cool! I saw an oil slick set on eBay for £125 (IIRC) they're damned cool, but not £125 cool.. how much were these?

    $150 USD? If so that's £116(ish) GBP so I guess that's the going rate :)

    Looks nice though mate!

    This is what I'm considering :)

    I would have preferred both in red. But I'm not a big fan of white.
    That's a pretty nice looking red though.
    These are painted right?

    Oddly enough, yes that's the going rate. What's weird is I found some on Etsy for 36.36. I'm sure it's a scam. But I'm super stoked for mine to show up! Thank you!

    Those are cool! Kinda like Van Gogh-y B)
    The red is a cool color. I just hope that the red is more "Maroon". That's what it looks like and looked like on the site. I'm super stoked for them! I actually like the white haha!

    And yes they are painted!

    Etsy has some great ones up. You should check them out!


    I also ordered all Zelda amiibos (card form, nfc chip) - So I'm getting my Fierce Deity costume in Breath of the Wild:)

    Yeah I saw some pretty cool stuff on Etsy. Didn't look at Switch accessories, but I saw someone selling custom painted n3DS cover plates, the price wasn't too bad for what it is, he had a premade one listed for about $38, guessing the guy who commissioned it backed out, price will probably depend on what design I want and I expect it to be higher than that, but hopefully not much more than $50, will have to hit them up sometime once I've decided on what design I want and see if we can sort out a deal.
    Custom painted JoyCons would be cool too, might consider that in the future once I get sick of the stock gray.

    It might not be a scam if you provide the joy-cons to be customized, then that $36.36 might just be the cost of customization (i.e. painting them).

    Those look amazing! I would personally love to see some brushed brass looking details on it too somewhere, to complete that sweet famicom look :)

    Oooh. Famicon! Haven't thought of that! That's actually a cool idea! One of my favorite colors are maroon, and I like how the white buttons clash with the maroon shell. I'm super excited to get them! - I'm looking forward to my amiibo cards too ;) all Zelda amiibos (in card form) for 18.99 (came out to 24 dollars after tax, but it's whatever. SO much cheaper than getting them all as amiibos)

    They do look hella cool but really 150$?!? Give me a spray can and some primer and a sanding pad annnnd hold my beer!


    Just my opinion but I would never spend over 100$ for any type of custom remote.

    Also it feels good knowing that, very likely, only 1 or 2 people in the world will have this exact joycon pattern as me:)

    I'm so tempted to create a library of amiibo cards... I'm just too lazy to do it :P At first I was really hyped into collecting them all over the years. Until I realized that the Smash Bros. ones weren't the only ones. And that they'd sell out and become expensive collector's items / scalper's items... Made me lose interest in amiibo's completely, that aren't bundled with the game.

    Pvc ntags are what I use they are the size and shape of credit cards. But the only issue I found is that after that wave of amiiqo and ntag215 sellings about a year ago I can no longer find sellings listed for the Pvc ones. I strictly use amazon prime so aliexpress will probably be the next stop for anyone still interested or if you happen to find the Pvc 50x packs then I'd get those.

    Damnit, now I do too!
    And thanks mate! I'm super stoked to get them! They look absolutely gorgeous. And it's not like some 'company', it's one or two guys doing this. This was actually the last one in stock (and probably the only one. Maybe even the one in the picture, used. Which wouldn't worry me too badly if they were used once or twice.)
    You totally should!! Not going to lie, you can make some exclusive ones and sell them for a good price to people ;)

    I'm way stoked for my Majoras Mask one!
