:eek: Yea, I know how that sounded....anyways, I ordered some decals from Decalgirl and just finished putting them on. They are very good quality stuff. I'm satisfied with the way it turned out. Let me know what you think...

It looks pretty awesome. How does the wiimote and nunchuk feel with the skin on them? Any different?

EDIT: And what's up with the Wii background? Photochopped?

Haha, yea I was bored and photochopped it. The nunchuck stick feels smoother with the decal in the center, which may be a bad thing so I may take it off. The Wiimote feels slightly different. In stead of the smooth plastic feeling under ur thumb, it's a smooth sticker plastic feeling if you know what I mean. I just put it on so I don't know how all of this will affect gameplay. But at least now I have an quick and easy way to tell which Wiimote is player 1 AND it looks pretty cool.

I don't like the red Japan stripes at all, but the black on white decal looks nice.

I picked up the retro skin some time ago, and it looks amazing. Decalgirl does some great work.

So does your coffee table always looks like you're at a sushi bar? Or was that just for the photos?

It was just for the pix.

I have a lot of Asian type decorations around my place, so the coffee table fits in nicely. Here's the original picture.

But you can't plug N64 memory cards into a Wii...

Oops, I didn't notice that. I meant a Gamecube memory card. It's fixed now. :p

Thats pretty savage :O

The nunchaku skins are a little lame though, I wish they covered more of it.

LOL when did you break into my house and skin my Wii?? I have that exact same tv stand with that exact Wega... 32" right? Do you have problems with the front panel on the tv? Mine changes the input when I try to change channels and changes the channel when I hit the volume. Only front buttons that work are the power and tv/video, damn thing weighs like 400lbs so I wasnt going to take it back, plus I ended up buying it right before BB closed...Hoping it dies soon so I can convince the fiance' to let me buy an LCD:D

My front panel works fine and it's actually a 36" TV I've used it to hookup my iPod, laptop, DVD player, etc for temporary use. All the front buttons work for me as well. Yea, this TV is a beast in terms of it's shear weight. As soon as I move I'm getting a flat panel display. Not sure on type yet with OLED, SED, and what not on the horizon.

With that stuff on the horizon it will surely start dropping the price of LCD's. I am looking at either something Westinghouse or Olevia. Heard great things about both, but too bad the Wii doesnt improve at anything higher than 480p:confused:

Sorry for the lack of quality, I sort of found this thread late.
This is an old photo, taken with my MotoRAZR. (Why it sucks.)
I'll take some better pics with better lighting tomorrow.
