Here is a fun video where I take my WiiU gamepad and make it look like a hoverboard from Back to the Future II. I used the website www.DecalGirl.com and my buddy Tom Ryan who is an artist friend to help me with the rendering of the graphic. Overall it makes it a great piece to  have in my game collection. Hmmm maybe a flux capacitor WiiU console skin next ?

The Punisher game on Sega is a fantastic game. I was excited to make a custom Sega controller with a Punisher theme to it. He is certainly a gritty, rough guy, so the controller had to reflect that. I used a drill, two part Apoxy sculpt and some acrylic paints to make this one of kind Sega controller come together

If you guys don't know me already, I drive a custom Super Mario Kart Car. It's a 2005 Scion xA and its painted Red, White, and Blue with yellow wheels just like Mario's car in the game. I am constantly working on it, and recently I have been making appearances at kids' birthday parties with it.

Well, I upgraded my shift knob which was a BaBomb for a while, and decided to make one out of a plastic banana to resemble the bananas you throw in Mario Kart.

I got a request to make a custom Mortal Kombat themed NES system. Although the game never officially came out on the NES, there is a ROM of it. I mean, it did come out on the Game Boy, so why not on the NES?
 
I think this one came together nicely and it was a lot of making it, especially sculpting the Mortal Kombat dragon.

Mega Man is as classic as it gets when it comes to Nintendo. I was contacted by someone who also shared the love that I have for Mega Man, and wanted a custom NES controller showcasing that.
With this design I wanted to push my creativity. I was going for a mechanical/robotic look on the controller, adding real bolts, screws, and exposed circuitboards.
I think the end result speaks for itself. Also not only did I make this controller, but I made Two Mega Man custom controllers, each a little different.

Hey guys Russ Lyman here, and I'm excited to share with you another custom controller I made. I love DIY stuff, and creating something new out of something old. My friend MegaDan29 reached out to me to make him a controller themed to his favorite NES game Punch Out.
I brainstormed for a bit, and released the simplest solution. Lets make it look like a boxing glove. I used a two part clay called Apoxie Sulpt to shape most of the controller, and YES it still functions. Its a little awkward to hold, but you can still use it. If you want to see a more detail build of the controller check out my full YouTube video on it here.
