Found my wife's old 2001 "Nintendo Gamecube" and then it sparked an idea. Once I was done it looked very nice but I still feel there is something missing! How can I make round controller ports?

  • Hi Nerd, this is really a nice MOC. However, without a specific question, this post will be closed.

    There's no real question here to answer, and the whole situation is opinion based. Some people may already say your creation looks good to be considered final, while others may state a billion of items that are still wrong. I find it best to discuss such creation in LEGO focused forums or groups.

    Maybe it is a good time to reread bricks.stackexchange.com/help/dont-ask .

Perhaps something like this using 1x4 arches could work?

Final build

This does work out to being 2 modules too wide for 1:1 scale with a GameCube, but the trade-off in accuracy may be worth it to you to get the round ports. It appears to be only 1 module wider than your current design.

Here's more detail of the build steps:

  • If you can find a way to combine this with the sloped edge then i think it will look good

    I'm not sure how I'd match that curve while keeping the other details intact. I'd certainly love to see an answer that does this, though. You might be able to get a better look by having this extend only a half module out from the front instead of the full module you used in your original design.

    @Nerd I'm suggesting having it extend only a half module (10 LDU) instead of a full module (20 LDU).
