How to use
The controller builder allows for seemingly endless customization for your next Gamecube Controller! It has now been updated to be as intuitive as possible.
First, select your base controller. All controllers available are first party Nintendo controllers. Available controllers: Smash 4 Editions (Black / White), Refurbished original controllers (Indigo / Silver / Black / Orange Spice) and OEM Shells (Smash Edition / Refurbished Original).
Second, select your controllers finish. Gloss and Matte are the available options. Both offer the same professional quality finish and protection. Gloss controllers may become slightly slippery if sweat is an issue for you, while Matte has a softer finish. Matte is most similar to a normal controller finish but has less texture.
Third, pick from all available colors / patterns / gradients to customize the controller sections as well as the start button, dpad and plug! Just click on the palette squares, then click on the area of the controller you would like to 'paint'.
To customize the gradient, select two colors via the palettes on the right. Then, select the direction of the gradient. Once the gradient is ready, you can select the completed gradient square on the left and apply it to controller sections.
It should be noted that The plug, start button and dpad may only be 'painted' with a solid color. Also, patterns will cover an entire controller half, they cannot be mixed and matched with other paints on the same shell.
Finally, you may add any additional items / effects on the 'Extras' tab. Certain options will be greyed out when patterns are used, since paint effects may not be added on top of patterns. When you select a shell for a base controller, button and stick options are also not available.
Pricing for most options is visible on the selection (Base / Finish / Paint Effects / Buttons / Image / Tag).
For the front and back shells, pricing is based on the complexity of the design. For painted designs, the number of different layers required is factored in. Each unique gradient will also add to the price. For example, a completely solid front shell will start at $20. A front shell with 5 different color sections will be $50 due to the extra time required for masking and drying between different color layers. Pattern designs are an additional $15.
Note: Your base controller is a OEM shell. Learn how to assemble it here.
Note: Your base controller is a refurbished OEM (black/indigo/silver controller). Buttons, sticks and triggers may feel looser than a new controller. Sticks are in good condition (may be slightly yellowed/scuffed).
Note: Your base controller is a refurbished Smash4 edition controller. Usually these are in very good / near mint condition but the wire and or sticks may show some discoloration.
Note: Your order contains an xbox one stick. This will replace the specified OEM stick.
Note: Your order contains a wrapped pattern. The display on this page is just an estimation of the patterns scale / orientation. Actual controller may look slightly different.
