Hey guys, first time poster, please be gentle.  slick

So I have a strange fascination with 3rd party controllers.  I usually buy whichever ones I can find.  However, I found one that I bought from a tag sale that I have no clue at all about it's origins other than it being made in China.  It's for the NES and has a slow button, but it has an "AA" and "BB" button which is obviously not standard.  I haven't really attempted to use it yet but I was wondering if anyone else has seen it or own one.  I attached a picture of it to the thread.

That's neat. I haven't seen that one either. Looks like they were honoring Nintendo's patent on the "cross" d-pad....interesting.

I've been checking out Nintendo controllers recently, posted a thing showing the insides of the first party ones here:

Think I could convince you to take some pictures of the insides of that one?  Cheesy

Here are a few.  It's super simplistic.

Sure it didn't some with kind of Famiclone?

The plastic looks about cheap and shoddy enough for it.

Yeah the controller looks like it belongs to the Family Boy series of FamiClones.

Here is review with pics: http://electronicsgameset...famiclone-review.html?m=1

The controller looks similar

Those inside pictures are neat, thanks.

Looks like it shares some of the same design characteristics as the 1st party controller, contact points and pads are certainly the same idea.

I like that it has an led, those are always fun.

FYI, this is the first Hyperkin-branded controller I believe, called the FC Super Loader, released in 2006. See attached photo. There were three different color combos available.

Nice! I don't think I've seen those FC Super Loader pads before, but they look like cheap Famiclone knock-off pads. Kind of interesting.

Def this.  I have the black model and the pads look exactly like this.
