I am about to paint my own to obviously match my Zelda Wiimote. I was thinking if it came out pro enough, that I might do more of them and sell them. Nintendo can't see fit to make gold nunchuks for those of us outside of Japan, so there has to be some market for such things.

How many of you would buy one if the price were reasonable and the quality was excellent? How much would you be willing to pay? I would use only NINTENDO nunchuks, no cheap knock-offs, and they would be brand new aside from being custom painted.

Just putting out some feelers to the gaming community any input is appreciated.

I would buy one for $5.00.

pay any reasonable price for good quality but not a stupid price like 75 or 50

Just finished the first prototype. Looks great, but I would like to match the color to the Zelda wiimote better. It's close, but I am a perfectionist, and I'm surely not gonna start selling them to other people if I'm not 110% satisfied.

No. I see websites all the time that custom paint controllers, systems, you name it. If they aren't going after those companies doing it I doubt they would come after one guy doing it in his spare time. It's not like I'm stealing controller sales from them. I would have to buy each one I painted after all. What would they have to gain?

Besides if Big N would release a gold nunchuk for US Club Nintendo members, like they did in Japan there would be no need for anybody to even custom paint their own. I know I would sign up for Club Nintendo to get one.

Hey Jack, check his name "UN of Trolls". Don't take the guy too seriously.

For real, try putting up a post on Nintendo Age. Those guys love to collect homebrew and fan Nintendo stuff.

I did this using Krylon K02533000 Fusion For Plastic Hammered Finish Aerosol Spray Paint, 12-Ounce, Copper Hammer which was a bit too dark (but the right texture to match the bottom of the Remote) --- Krylon K02339000 Fusion For Plastic Metallic Shimmer Aerosol Spray Paint, 12-Ounce, Blonde Shimmer looks to be a closer colour match.

Did you clear coat it ?

Posted on Apr 19, 2012 5:27:43 AM PDT
No, but it seems to need it (which I'm surprised at --- thought that Krylon Fusion bonded directly to the plastic).

I clear coated mine, and it completely changed the color. It's way off now, and I have to start over. Try to avoid clear coat if you can, as they are never truly clear. Make sure you sand the plastic before you paint so the paint will stick. Mine didn't need the clear, but I wanted to make it shiny... Big mistake.

I would pay more than $5 for a used nunchuck.

Plus wouldn't the gold paint rub off on your hands while you're playing. On second though, I would go no higher than $2.75.

Not if done correctly. That's like asking if your car's paint is going to rub off. It's not like we are painting with watercolors here.

You don't need to sand if you use Krylon's Plastic Fusion paints --- they're a dye which alters the chemical content of the plastic, not a surface pigment (though the textured ones contain additional pigments &c. to create the texture).

You can get them straight from Club Nintendo if you have the points.
