Notice the scratch looking line low left side of joystick running down. i have seen this exact same mark on multiple controllers even brand new! & other marks identical on other controllers also. are these made in the plastic mold when making or maybe from a machine installing the joystick? thoughts? surly others have noticed these no?

Hi, I've sourced them from different places, Ebay, Japan Auctions, Akiba-Games and so on.
The cases are from ukgraders.co.uk i sent them custom dimensions. They cost £12 each and took a few week to make and ship back to me. You should contact them and see if they will ship to the U.S, the guy i dealt with was called Steve and he was really helpful. If they don't ship to the U.S i'd be happy to help any forum member and send them over.
Hi, i found a guy locally that can make them but he wants exact dimensions before he gives me a quote. your boxes look way better than vga's so would you mind passing those figures on? if way expensive i might take you up on your kind offer & get you to ship them to me ;)

Is it possible to remove the power 100 logo off of the power 100 controller to place on a controller in better condition? has anyone tried this and have any results or information on how it goes?

It does look very fragile so i was thinking heat it up with a hair dryer to soften the adhesive and use a thin fishing line to pull back and forth to slowly cut through the adhesive?

any info or anyone got any results please lemme know thanks!

Joycard 64 controller costs about $21, and is sold separately.


So the two clear Hudson controllers were sold separately?

What happened to each of them being limited to 1000, and prizes? Am I missing something? :smokin:
Read the start of the article it will make sense again lol.....

Just after some information regarding the Geoffrey & hello mac controllers. do the bottom half of these controllers the grey part, have made in japan or made in china?

im aware due to others information on this forum that the E3 has japan on the black half and the mario kart limited has japan on the grey half. what controllers are known to have have made in japan on them? :yeah:
