Concept: Vintage Wii Mod

Our biggest complaint with the Wii’s white plastic controllers is how dirty they get over time; Joe D’s Vintage Wii Mod concept addresses this with a swank woodgrain on black color scheme.

Shin Tanaka’s T-Boy is an exceptionally well designed vinyl, from the crowbar arms down to the sneakers. We particularly like the graphic ringer tee and that fact that his arms rotate.
