Apr 16 2008Eye Candy: Awesome Super Mario Galaxy Wii

smg-wii-1.jpg

We've seen several good looking Wii mods here on Geekologie, but modder Ramon might very well do it best. Ramon is the same guy that whipped up the awesome Zelda Wii, along with several other mods (be sure to check out the Samus Wii and Legend of Zelda DS). Now he's back with a wicked Super Mario Galaxy Wii. The console took over 100 hours of work and planning and features a backlit Super Mario Galaxy marquee, flashing star LEDs countersunk into both sides, integrated remote holders, battery charger, plaque dedicated to Miyamoto for his awesome work on the Mario series, and several retro Super Mario sound effects triggered by pushing the Wii's buttons. Be sure to hit the jump for pictures of the other side, along with a video demonstrating the flashing stars and sound effects. The unit is for sale on eBay, and is currently at $710 with over 4 days remaining. 15% of the winning bid will be donated to Child's Play Charity, which is awesome. Now if I can just find an easy way to procure a few thousand dollars, that Wii is mine.

UPDATE: Greetings from the county jail! Remember kids, crime doesn't pay unless you don't get caught (I got caught).

More pictures and a video, along with a link to the auction with a TON more pics, after the jump.

First! Looks sweet.

That's actually kind of cute. I have nothing snarky to really say about it. Ugh. I'm getting soft in my old age.

i think it look pretty ugly and he's not done allot cosmeticly, he painted it added a bit of milliput or similar to the base to make the hill and glued some figures on, im guessing the logo was cut on a cnc, wish i had access to one of them, and the logo looks good but it doesnt light up very well, i would have left the lights as an outer glow for the logo and solid painted it

Can I ask a question? *raises hand*

Why?

Can I ask another question - will you touch my genitals with a broom?

Hey #3.

How about you get access to an English book before you get your CNC machine. Cripes. Then, when you built your Wii mod, we can trash it while using proper punctuation and spelling.

That is all.

These case mods are always such a dichotomy to me. On the one hand, a lot of time and effort (and probably money) have been poured into their creation. They look pretty rad and interesting, and also appeal heavily to the nerd collector in me.

On the other hand, however, screwed if I'd ever want one of the bloody things in my house. Sheesh.

I think it looks cool
