The Legend of Etching: A Link to the Auction

Over on eBay, the pictured (it's a badly-lit photo, the seller admits) GBA SP is up for grabs over the span of little less than three days. It has an etch of the design on Link's shield on the top portion of the clamshell, allowing any Link-lover in Canada to toss their coin in for the opportunity. We must admit, though, the thing could've used a nice forest green paint job before doing the etching, or perhaps a custom color scheme more fitting to the Hylian Shield. Currently, the bid resides at thirty Canadian dollars.

Any of you think the custom unit is worth your hard-earned money? What about your easily-earned money?

[Thanks, Andrea!]

A cursory glance is all I needed to see that this is horribly misaligned. It looks like somebody had a little too much to drink one night.

Maybe that's why he didn't reshoot the picture seems how it cost nothing to take a picture.

...I'd buy that for a dollar. That's all it's worth.

For crying out loud, you're trying to sell me something. Take the bloody time out for a nice picture. Showing me a blurry and poor photo makes me think you're trying to hide something.

This is coming from a Zelda whore too. Smack a triforce on anything and I'll forth.
