Star Wars Wii Console Hits Ebay for $15k
December 8th, 2007
Serious Star Wars fans might like this custom Darth Vader Wii that’s currently up for for sale over on eBay. But is it really worth the $15,000 Buy it Now price the seller is asking?
The Star Wars Wii features a black finish and dramatic red LED illumination, befitting of the Dark Side of the Force. The console also includes a pair of black Wii-mote and Nunchuk controllers and a black sensor bar to complete the look. It’s hard to tell from the photos and the listing how the console was embellished (not sure if it’s paint or vinyl decals), but for $15k, I’d hope it was hand detailed.
The seller of this custom Wii claims that it’s one of just four that were ever created. According to the listing, the console was used by to promote LucasArts’ upcoming Star Wars game, The Force Unleashed. I’m a little skeptical about the auction, if only for the fact that the seller doesn’t show the other side and back of the console, and called the game “Unleash the Force”.
Caveat Emptor, young Jedi.
