Check this amazing custom NES – with glowing Mega Man

May 06, 2013 // Minish Capcom

There’s no shortage of amazing console mods out there, but this gorgeous backlit Mega Man NES from PlatinumFungi is so cool it certainly deserves a special nod.

This is a fully functioning NES and an art piece. I made this mod entirely by hand – the cutting, filing, sanding, wiring, soldering, creating the 8-bit Mega Man pixel by pixel where I tried to have a 1/32 ” level of accuracy (which I’ll just say once – took f.o.r.e.v.e.r.), etc. Everything was done with hand tools. No professional cutting, etching, or other machines were used. I lost track of how many hours went into this weeks ago – it was truly a labor of love.

You can read more about its creation over on the main site – it’s an interesting read and, more importantly, there are even more images of the finished piece.

Thanks for the link, and of course thanks for making something so completely cool 🙂
