one-of-a-kind item! It is a piece of electronic art but also a fully functional
This auction is for the 'Backlit Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles system, 4 custom official
NES controllers, an official NES power
supply, a power supply for the backlighting, and an AV cable. The system has
been internally cleaned and has a NEW 72 pin connector installed so it plays
games like new again too. No more blowing on the carts!
The system is autographed and numbered #001 on the bottom.
INTERNATIONAL shipping is available. PLEASE
message me and I will calculate the costs. You will pay actual cost by whatever
method you choose. Please note I will ONLY ship via a method where we can have
tracking AND the actual value / selling price will be listed as the item's
value on the paperwork. I will not lie on the paperwork.
Here is the story behind this system:
For the past few years, I've been creating 'Backlit NES' systems. I had the
idea back in 2009 but at that time I really had no idea how to turn my idea
into a reality. Slowly but surely since then I have experimented and improved
my techniques with each system I built. This Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
system is the newest and most advanced one yet!
To my knowledge, no one has ever created something like this before, so it is
currently the FIRST and ONLY of its kind in the ENTIRE WORLD.
Besides the backlit cut out design of the Ninja Turtles on top, there are also
custom decals for the AV ports on the side and rear of the system that match
the new paint job. The controllers have custom overlays portraying each of the
four turtles as well!
The amazing paint job was done by my good friend 'Custom NES Guy'. His skill
for painting is almost legendary on the internet. He's been painting cars for
ages, and moved on to customizing gaming systems over 5 years ago. He used real
automotive grade paint that was applied in exactly the same manner that you'd
use for a show car. He used automotive base coat clear coat system, and buffed
it to a mirror shine.
These NES art systems are a labor of love. Sometimes I think I must be crazy to
spend the shear amount of time, labor, and expense that I do to make these a
reality, but then I step back and look at the finished piece and realize
there's nothing else I want to be doing. I honestly love making these, and I
will continue to make new and exciting custom NES art systems for as long as I
am able :)
The money raised from this auction will go right back into creating more
'Backlit NES' systems. From talking to a lot of gamers online, I have a pretty
good idea of what other designs you'd like to see, but if you have any fun
ideas please let me know! I also love to collaborate with other artists so
contact me if you're interested in that too!
A big THANK YOU to everyone who has posted about this system on your websites, blogs,
Facebook, Twitter, Imgur, Instagram, Pinterest, etc, and also sent us private
messages with amazing feedback! It really means a lot. For me personally, it's
all your support that helps motivate me to continue to create one-of-a-kind
pieces of video game art :) So thank you.
