This custom backlit Mega Man NES is awesome

Blue console + blue lights

In honor of the 25th anniversary of Mega Man, mega-fan Platinum Fungi, in conjunction with Custom NES Guy, has created a fully functioning piece of art -- a 25th anniversary NES. The mod was made solely by hand, with the art done pixel by pixel, and the innards reworked wire by wire with hand tools. In addition to producing a fully-functional NES that lights up, he also hard-wired new AV port labels and made custom decals.

Once again, Mega Man fans never cease to amaze me. They're among some of the most passionate members of the gaming community, and I'm proud to be a part of it! If Platinum's site is down, you can view his Facebook page here and his gallery here.
