I have seen some really amazing NES and SNES custom jobs.  For some reason this trend hasn't carried over to the TG16...  including here.  It isn't terrible, but the visible white areas and non-uniform sparkles rub me the wrong way.  This does make me want to see a real quality paint job though.

I hold the PCE in higher regard than NES/SNES/Gen - so while I can tolerate custom paint jobs on those consoles, I see the PCE family as flawless and in no way something that should be painted.

I despise painted consoles. On any moving parts, hinges, cart slots, connector receptacles, etc. the paint will flake off and make the device look pretty ugly in no time.

Since the TG is kinda fugly, it's okay to hack away at them. Like Josh's Legendary Axe custom job.

Re: The "Ninja Duo" Phenomenon...

I hereby christen these "Ninja Duos..."  A regular Turbo Duo is boring, plain, so why only go "turbo" when you can go "ninja" ?? The "Ninja Duo" ladies and gentlemen, let's duo this!!!  :mrgreen:

In all honesty, when you compare this one to the hack job Ninja16608 did, it's not bad; respectable work was put into it versus just slapping gloss on it and fabricating a "mysterious" creation story about it being for official store display purposes once upon a time, etc. But yeah, I kinda like this latest Ninja Duo aesthetically! ;)

Saw this the other day:

Looks like an auto paint shop started taking side jobs.

It's like a fancy bass boat.  Rednecks like metallic spangle.

I think the PCE systems are all great colors and should not be changed. However, I'd love to do this with a Neo Geo CDZ and make it white! 😁
