    Well, I was searching on ebay.com a while ago and I was wondering if this **** is legit or not. If any of you have it, please let me know because I want one but not no bootlegs. I want a Carbon Fiber skin and here's the link:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/BLACK-CHROME-NI...QQihZ014QQcategoryZ147176QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    See if any of those are any good!

    they look cheap.
    it takes away from the overall look of the wii.
    white is sleek, modern.
    those skins draw from that.
    A camoflauge skin looks trashy not cool.

    A guy on here posted a while back saying he bought one off that decal-girl, and it's proper legit and it doesn't leave any residue on the wii and he had a skin on there for about a month I think

    its a third party but its Nintendo approved (licensed with the nintendo logo ).:D

    and its true the skin doesnt left any residue its easy to remove and put it back and it doesnt wear off....:thumbsup:

    i have it since december 24th..yeah christmas gift...so its not a waste of money i didnt pay for it !!! :lol:

    Thats not a good look...

    Such a waste of money and time. The white look is clean, modern, and sophisticated. All that crap just takes away from the beauty and the simplicity of it. But hey to each his own. I'd rather spend that money on a stand for my Wii Remotes and Nunchuks...btw does the Wiimote Stand have a slot for Nunchuks?

    ****, that's hot. Can I ask what the little game holder thing is and where you got it?

    edit: .. made a newbie mistake and then read a few posts down and saw you got it from Toys 'R Us. Sorry. :[

    i like that blue effect. however I prefer the natural look of the wii. I wouldn't like to stick anything on it.

    This may be a dumb question, but how did you get/make that Wii Sports case?

    i personally prefer the iPod-style whiteness of the wii. nothing can beat that sexy look. but then again its your choice.

    I have that stand too. Its pretty good, but the Wii dosent fit in it right. You know those little nub things for putting the Wii horizontally? They dont fit. You have to force it down. Other than that its a good stand :D:D:D

    I'm not a fan of adding skins to electronics, I prefer to keep them the way they were stock...it becomes more "classic" to me.
