    Zelda-modded DS Lite up at eBay

    It's so beautiful...

    Normally, I don't post news about modifications of DS units, but this example begs to be looked at with tears of joy. This individual modded a DS Lite .. yes, Lite .. with a Zelda theme, including a metal shield that lights up when the unit is charging. The best part about this is that you can actually have the chance to own it! It's up for auction at eBay right now, but only for those of us in the United States (sorry). There are many more high-resolution screenshots within the auction. It's a safe bet that the winning bidder will have instant bragging rights. No, I don't know the guy nor am I entitled to any percentage of the winning bid. I'd rather have the unit for myself. [​IMG]

    UPDATE: I've been informed that the seller will ship to Europe, so if you can afford it, then best wishes to you.

    I'm usually not that impressed by mods, but, this thing looks like the real deal. That is some incredible, incredible work. Whoever gets this baby should be proud. [​IMG] Really amazing.

    the only problem I see is it being sucky to put in your pocket.
    but it looks hot.

    Haha, the guy is at it again. Materials (including the DS Lite unit itself) cost him about 140-150$. The modded Wii that he made cost him about 260$ - he sold it for nearly 1300$.

    BTW I don't think that looks that good at all (the gold looks plain bad for one), though I liked the Wii one.
