Posted under arcade, nintendo


I just bought a Nintendo Playchoice 10 arcade machine, with the dual monitors in April of 2021. I plan to bring it back to life some, because it certainly has seen some neglect. This is my first actual arcade, I have a Street Fighter Arcade 1UP but that is a lot smaller and modern. This thing was a beast to transport, having the two monitors made it that much more heavier than the single monitor Playchoice 10

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 ?

Posted under sega, DIY


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

Posted under diy, mario kart


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.

Posted under nintendo, shoes


So Vans partnered with Nintendo in the past to put out some cool shoes. Well Nintendo did it again, this time with shoe company Puma. They had to celebrate Marios 35th Anniversary in style. I take a look at these shoes that are a through back to the old school NES

I thought it would be fun for my Top 3 Tuesday to talk about the Top 3 Mario Games on the Switch I think you should pick up this holiday season if you don't have them already.

As a bonus, I discuss a fun Black Friday story of how I got my Nintendo Wii. I totally mess up the year and say 2012, because I looked up the Wii release date and got the WiiU released ate instead and realized after I uploaded the video 🤷‍♂️

It's still a fun time regardless.

Posted under switch nintendo freddy


I was given two controllers from a friend to customize. He wanted a Freddy theme and a NES Jason one. I had a blast making these controllers for him. I use some epoxy sculpt and acrylic paint to create the look on both of them.

Posted under 90s stores


Department stores that have been forgotten to the past and closed down. Lots of these department stores and retail outlets have lots of fond memories for us adults now. Growing up and going to some of these stores like Circuit City, Toys R Us, Caldor, and more, bring back a different time. Now that they no longer exist we cherish these memories of browsing their aisle stacked with toys, video games, board games and much more!

Posted under lego, nintendo


Well I'm sure everyone has seen the Mario playlets that LEGO and Nintendo teamed up on. I picked up the Starter pack which includes Lego Mario, (which you need to interact with all the sets), and I grabbed an expansion pack and some small accessories. I made a fun video of me putting it together and playing with it.

Posted under commercials


So I started a new series on my Youtube Channel where I make commercials for various video game items. I have 3 videos currently out which include, The NES Controller, the SNES Controller, and the game StarTropics for NES.

I will be expanding to other consoles and games in the future. I have also enlisted some of my friends to do guest VoiceOvers on the episodes.

When you sign up for Nintendo's online service you are given the option to purchase NES style bluetooth controllers, so you can play the classic games with a more authentic feel. Well my friend Alex sent me a set of them to customize to one of his favorite classic Mario games. Super Mario Bros 3. This was a fun build and introduce some challenges that I had to overcome. Enjoy the video.

Posted under nintendo, diy, custom, mortal combat


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.

Posted under atari


I take the Toony Terrors figures Micahel Myers (Halloween) and Leather face (Teaxs Chainsaw Massacre) Series 2 Toony Terros by NECA and rePaint them to look more like their Atari 2600 counter parts. Both had games on the Atari system, so with the limited graphics of the system, the color palette will also be limited

Posted under diy, nintendo, joycon,


Some people have had issue with their joy cons drifting, or maybe they got tired of the look of them. There are plenty of ways you can modify them. I custom painted my whole switch to look like the new turquoise Switch Lite, only thing, I still had black thumbsticks. I ordered a set of white ones to make the look compete and I show you how I installed them. Enjoy

Posted under metroid, custom,diy,how to, nes, nintendo


I love getting custom orders from people who have a favorite game. This one was for my buddy Joe and he really loves the Metroid series. He told me that he also enjoyed the bad guys a lot. I wanted to try something new for this project and make it really stand out. I used Apoxy Sculpt, acrylic paints, and hot glue to make this system. Oh....and a lot of time and hard work. Check out the video to see the process and the two custom controllers I did for the system as well.
