My PHYSH Stick arcade stick is complete!


#1

So I’m just like alot of the peeps that got fed up waiting for the Madcatz TE stick, and finally decided to take matters into their own hands!

I remember when they were first announced, I was like no way I’m gonna pay $200 for a joystick. Then I read up on it, and once I got Street Fighter 4, I was like goddamn I need a joystick to play:annoy: I learned all I could about arcade parts, Sanwa parts and finally caved in to get a preorder. Then finding out how long it was taking, I then looked locally to try and grab a Hori Real Arcade Pro, but those were sold out everywhere.

I haven’t touched Street Fighter for a very long time, since I could not stand to play without a joystick.

So I made some sticks for me and my buddies:

I don’t like seeing screws on the face of the joystick.

I didn’t cut the artwork properly :sweat:

Didn’t get the plexiglass in time to install it :looney:

Some old school wood grain luxury car look lol.

Now that my hard work complete, I can whoop some azz online :arazz:

first thing that popped into my head too :looney:


#3

No, these are my own made joystick boxes. My blood and sweat went into making them lol!


#4

very seducing artwork


#5

those are beautiful =] i wish i had the time and money to make one


#6

i like that carbon fibre vinyl…looks really cool…thining about doing that myself


#7

do you have a work log or tutorial you can post D: Looks nice. I’d make one of this if i can’t get my hands on a TE. tutorial onegaishimasu~


#8

Yes i would love to know how myself. I was in the same boat as you, but i stumbled across an SE stick at gamecrazy. Still, i may just make my own and have the SE in case a friend wants to join in.

Definitely “Finkle-esque”, which is definitely not a bad thing. Love the carbon fiber one. Great work.


#10

Nice work. Very finkle-like indeed. Keep it up =)


#11

I was wondering when I’d see a stick using that Satoshi Urushihara Chun Li art. Good stuff very clean sticks .


#12

Love the carbon fibre look on the first stick. For some reason the size of the squares remind me of my old Sonic 2 Mega Drive case.


#13

To tell you the truth, I actually modelled the stick after my coffee table, its pretty similar in design.

A few more buddies of mine want now want me to make them cases as well :bluu:
More work for me.


#14

The construction and design look fantastic - Well Done!

I know you already mentioned the art isn’t trimmed perfectly, so I won’t mention that :wink:

That industrial green colour doesn’t do it for me, I think a more eye catching colour would make your excellent construction stand out even more - Keep up the great work!


#15

Its not industrial green lol. Its gunmetal grey, I guess its the lighting and the whitebalance setting of the photo that kinda messes it up.


#16

very nice, like the carbon fiber


#17

PHYSH can u hook me up with one of u cases i live in toronto too.


#18

such a way with words :stuck_out_tongue:

#19

#20

I’ll be working on a few more for my buddies this weekend, so sure I could make an extra one for you.

My wife is killing me, haven’t had time to spend with her for the past few weekends :xeye:
