It’S a Bird, It’S a Plane… It’S an Xbox 360
For some, Superman may be dead (or Brandon Routh), but the classic movie man of steel lives on, in hearts, in minds, and on this Xbox 360. While I’m often not a fan of airbrushed cases (I much prefer more elaborate mods, myself), I have to say that the cracks and details in this one look great.

At least, the Mega Man mod for Doom 2–yes, Doom 2–is adorable in theory. The little blue guy himself is pretty adorable, sure, and the color palette we’re treated to here certainly makes this the most cheerful death match.

Touchscreen iMac G4: a Nice Mixture of New, Old and Windows

Touchscreen iMac G4: a Nice Mixture of New, Old and Windows
Earlier this year we featured modder Jonathan Berg aka Dremel Junkie‘s Wall-E casemod. Now he’s back with a 20-inch iMac G4 with touchscreen capabilities and *gasp* a bag of hurt a Blu-Ray drive. Berg encountered a couple of problems while modding the G4, the first being the proprietary connector that the iMac monitor uses to connect to its controller.

Psp 3000, Now Polished With a Plethora of Pleasing Lights
Some mods look deceptively simple, like this customized PSP 3000. Sure, you see a few lights, and if you check out the in-progress pictures, you can even see more of the upgrades and fitting progress. But the end result is a disco inferno of lights and sounds that you’d never expect from looking at this picture.

From Classic Console to Arcade Stick

From Classic Console to Arcade Stick
Here’s a creative way to preserve that old NES when it finally, finally breaks down: turn it into an arcade stick. A bulky, thick, incredible arcade stick. Beyond the forest of wiring, this actually doesn’t look as difficult as some of the crazier custom jobs we’ve seen, and odds are most folks have an old and unused console lying around somewhere.

SNES + Genesis + NES + Portable = Snegenes P

SNES + Genesis + NES + Portable = Snegenes P
Want to play all your favorite classic retro console games? Sure you could cheat and buy yourself a Dingoo, but what fun would that be? This custom-built portable uses hardware from a couple of other devices to create a system that plays games from the Nintendo NES, SNES and Sega Genesis.

Thundercats, Ho! a Custom Xbox 360!

Thundercats, Ho! a Custom Xbox 360!
I’m not sure there’s much I can say about this Thundercats Xbox 360 that it doesn’t say for itself. I mean, sure, I can throw some adjectives around, but I propose instead a moment of silence, in which we all look about the might of this design (and possibly despair).

Glowing Zelda Belt Buckle Lights the Way
When I think Legend of Zelda, I think glowing belt buckles. Okay, no, actually I think of Link holding things over his head, but there’s nothing that says you couldn’t hold this modded belt buckle (belt!

Customized Playstation 3 Controller by Ben Heck: I Don’t Get It
Master modician Ben Heck was commissioned to create a customized Playstation 3 controller. The customer wanted Heck “to make the shoulder buttons easier to get at”. Judging from the finished product, which required the removal of the rumble motors, I’m inclined to believe that the customer has 4 extra thumbs and no ring and middle fingers.
