Check Out My New Arcade Stick! (No Image Quoting)


the lap destroyer


Gonna get me one of those Panzer sticks in the future. The build looks good.

Thinking glossy white with white Crown CWJ stick and clear Sanwas/Seimitsus


I’ve had art and PCBs to revitalize my stick for a while but have done other people’s sticks and other things instead. Finally, I sat down and spent some time within the last few days and finished it all up.
First time working with a PS360+ and I didn’t want things too easy. Wanted to complicate things and be as detailed as possible since the PS360 is kinda “easy mode”.

-Desoldered all screw terminals on PS360 and FGWidget
-Wired boards together using PS360s secondary holes
-Made wire sets with sleeves and heat shrink for buttons, interior USB cable, and Sanwa JLF
-Dremeled case in cord compartment area to fit and install Neutrik USB A/B adapter/screws and a 24mm Sanwa button for Home/Guide
-Dremeled rectangles in back of stick to solder to 2 terminals (top for button signal & ground, bottom for LED signals)
-Dremeled off ribbon cable posts from QDC PCBs
-Put KNsert 1.4s in buttons. Soldered LED ground to button’s QDC ground post and LED signal used individual wire color to match each stock Madcatz QDC wire.
-Art layout designed via me, inspired by the greatest comic book character of all time. Comic via issue #3 Ennis/Dillon run of Punisher from 2000)
-Art and plexi printed/cut via arthong (Tek Innovations)
-Art in buttons printed via FedExOffice and hand cut and placed in clear Semitsu buttons (I forgot to put them on the file going to arthong)

Shoutouts to Madcatz, Toodles, SRKTT, Dremel, Spectrum Electronics, BestCableForLess, Marvel, Tek Innovations, Sanwa and Semitsu

EDIT- Also… 6 button is cool

Those interested in reading the comic strip artwork on the bottom-

I kinda want to add an LED in the balltop as well, but don’t like the look of a clear balltop. :-/


love the comic stick!


Is the blue PCB for the LED’s?


@dej - Thanks
@Lord_Auki - Yes. It’s Toodles’ FGWidget which is really old now in comparison to what you can do LED wise. I got it and the KNserts from him back at Devastation 2010 I believe.


That’s a really good idea, dremeling out the space underneath the barrier block


i bet your favorite super hero is batman



Would love to get a couple of 360 versions for xmas gifts. Will they be available soon? Thank you and Merry Christmas!


@elixproject - your socks are horribad.


@FrankCastleAZ, that Punisher stick is $ick!


NOIR layout, universal mounting (JLF and Fantas), lexan with countersunk holes for panel bolts.

needs artwork and other stuff of course, used a sixaxis pad with axisdapter :slight_smile:

big thanks to B-boy Tekken for the custom job! hit him up if you need some panels cut!

also thanks to @DanAdamKOF for the myoungshin fanta :slight_smile:


^can you believe i found a tekken 5 stick at the salvation army? some poor kid’s mother actually got mad enough to throw it out… probably

edit: in box too i might add


Added a mount for the wiimote.



My latest creation, hitbox with Gamefinger custom buttons. It’s 24mm thick (less then 1 inch), carries Cthulhu MC and those eyes light up.

looks super sick, but is it actually playable when you have it in your lap? looks pretty unstable, but hell, thats a really really unique and cool layout


It’s quite heavy, plus hitbox type controllers do not require much stability, there’s no stick to jerk around =)


Looks amazing with that panel. are you planning to add a little art or etching on that? I really love the old hrap cases. Im still looking for a HRAP SE, and the HRAP 3 se.


So I FINALLY completed this stick this weekend.
I checked the “Created on” timestamp on the directory on my computer for the design specs, and it says “August 26th 2013”. So stick is about 3 1/2 months in the making, on and off.

Casing is made of solid ABS plastic. I’m a model-builder, so I tend to be more confortable working with plastic than with wood.

Front and back of the stick: All-Sanwa with a JLF and OBSF-30s, with a recessed/flush-mounted Switchcraft RJ-45 pass-through. Side buttons are L1/L2 and ST/SL/H buttons, all black Seimitsu 24mm screw-ins.

Bottom: nothing exciting here. ABS panel for the bottom, and 40mm black aluminum feet.

But you ask: "Why is there a vertical break on the top panel, and what are those little rectangles above the panel?"
I’m glad you asked!

A spring-loaded “button” allows me to stick my finger in there, and pull of either side of the top panel.
The panels are held down with neodymium magnets, and the electrical work is connected via spring contacts.

So a quick little switch and I have a full-Seimitsu MK-panel! (Ok, the MK-panel isn’t a true MK panel; it’s a modified Astro P2 and the colors are off because I just used leftovers)

Project boxes for different PCBs: I have a PS360+ and a TvC-PCB wired already, I have extra boxes for a ChImp (for PSN-PS2 games) and soon an XBO controller (for KI). The project boxes fit inside the casing after you rip off the top panels.

Instead of crimping an RJ-45 plug directly on my 10’ USB cables, I’ve started to make these instead:

And a complete picture of all my optional gear for this stick so far:

I was originally inspired by of this from a stick that @rtdzgn did about a year ago with swappable sectioned top-panels. @mr3mortified (I don’t think the @ mention is working with his username) also recently posted something with swappable full top-panels a few months ago, so his work also drove me to work harder on mine (though mine was already in-progress at the time). Props to you two for pushing me to work harder/faster.

Also have to thank @Digital717 for his tutorial here on painting MDF; while I didn’t end up with a mirror-finish as I would’ve hoped, his tutorial helped me with the polishing and stuff. Not the super-gloss finish that I would’ve wanted, but it’s still not too bad…
