Galleries > Limited Edition Lites: A History of Sadness
This bold yellow DS was actually sold online in the U.S. by the Pokemon Center late last year. Not anymore, of course! You're doomed to stare at it.

I am 38 y.o. male and I thought I was nuts. I have begun an interest to collect DS Lites based on new colors coming out in the US. I have Onyx (plain but it was my first,) and love the Crimson/Black, Cobalt/Black, Guitar Hero (I can't believe you complained about the logo? At least it has some solid color instead of thin black outlines!) I also thought the pictured Pirates of the Caribbean version worked, not as ugly as you thought. Anyway collecting these obv is a real expensive hobby which my wife is po'd about. After going to Nintendo World and seeing some of these and more Ltd. Edition DSL's I am disappointed truly. The Final Fantasy Versions are imho severely lacking especially with the beautiful artwork in the games and manga...same goes esp for TWEWY (which is the only game I have played since I got into DS that actually blew my socks off!) The artwork in the game is the best I have seen. Unfortunately I won't be caught dead actually owning the Pink(see below,) dont care for the Polar white. I doubt I'll pick up the Metallic Rose, but will def at some point buying the Zelda Gold (HOT!) and I look forward to any other hot colors coming out! Maybe even Love and Berry! (for the collection only, of course!) I may try to get the Yellow Pokemon, the other Pokemon eds. bore me, as do most of the black on white crap above! Sorry if I rain on anyones parade, I'm sure the fans of these kinds hate me right now... no flaming okay? Anyway... my collection will be small I am sure, based on funds vs. actual game playing need. When there was a DSL shortage here last XMAS I bought a Pink to use for week...shhh!--then sold it on Craigslist for more than I paid for it. Supply and Demand, huh my friends? Gettting back to the topic: I would love to see a Professor Layton Version Full Color Artwork obv. and what about having that One-of John Carmack hand-painted Orcs and Elves version sold (over $3K I believe) on ebay a few months ago? If game designers did some LTDs for Nintendo even mass produced people would snap them up. I end with this... any thoughts on having your own professionally done artwork on an existing DSL you own? I have no artistic talent, but I am sure those of you out there who do, have already worked on theirs. Let see some pics!
