There are case mods, and then there are case mods. What you see in the video above is truly one of the more outstanding case mods where the humble NES is concerned, taking the cult movie favorite R2-D2 from the Star Wars space opera and turning it into a moving console of sorts. Custom built by Mark Bongo of Major League Mods, this little astromech droid that could comes with the original NES console fitted within itself, where there is a cartridge slot located at the back alongside the power plug, audio and video plugs. In front, you will find the power and reset buttons which will respond in R2-D2’s now famous beeps and boops when pressed. You are also able to enjoy blue LED accents located along the bottom, not to mention the customized R2-D2-themed controller, red and blue buttons, and all that. Definitely one of the cooler case mods we have seen for an old school console, and C3PO does not seem to get much love at all.
