Twenty-one-year-old sculpture student Zachariah Cruse reveals custom Xbox 360 case mod inspired by The Avengers.
Captain America is one of 21-year-old sculpture student Zachariah Cruse's favorite superheroes. To mark his appreciation for the fictional character, Cruse created a custom Xbox 360 case based on the Marvel superhero.
As detailed on Cruse's website, the custom Xbox 360 S model boasts a familiar blue and white color scheme, as well as Captain America's iconic shield and the famous "A" and wings from his mask.
Cruse is a student at the Herron School of Art and Design in Indianapolis, Indiana. He has previously created a custom Iron Man Xbox 360, as well as various other gaming-focused system mods. His work is available for purchase by commission.
I'm not a huge Marvel or superheo fan by any stretch, but this custom XBOX looks pretty sweet and is very well done. It screams "USA! USA!! USA!!!" at its Japanese competitors.
At least Captain Afghanistan and Captain Norway doesn't have little fluffy wings on their ears.
He did a pretty good job but i would be hella scared to play the damn thing like i play my 360 now. Just put it in a collectors case or up on a mantle and be done with it.....
I like what the person did to his Xbox and I call it a piece of art being not just anybody can do it. Art is to the eye of the beholder, just like beauty art is not always about paint.

@CHROMEFLAMIN Dude, he made something he liked and is selling it off because chances are, someone else will share the same interest. Stop being a tosser because you think you're greater than everyone else and appreciate the work he did. Also, the definition of an artist is - A person who produces paintings or drawings as a profession or hobby. Someone who has supposedly painted professional for three years and privately for twenty should know the definition.
@CHROMEFLAMIN <--- Says he's not here to argue.
@CHROMEFLAMIN I wouldn't be able to do any better than that, would you? It looks awesome, and the guy did it by himself. If that's not art, I don't know what the hell is, then.
@CHROMEFLAMIN "Ive painted professionally for three years" And trolled pathetically in hundreds of gamepot's news also.
@CHROMEFLAMIN Every Xbox out there totally looks like that, right?
You are blowing this out of proportion. So because both the Xbox AND Captain America have established designs to them, anyone who attempts to make something new out of these is automatically disregarded as a "not artist". Have a look at his Iron Man themed Xbox and tell me it doesn't look awesome. Pretty sure you would collapse if you ever visited DeviantArt, where people do that kind of thing all the time.
@CHROMEFLAMIN Technically, you're wrong. it is possible to modify the design of a product and create something entirely unique from that. Case in point, the changes made to the 360's case were pretty drastic here, plus the fact the paint job was made from the ground up already makes it unique in many ways, regardless of your liking. People tend to do that kind of modification to cars too, and after all these years, I'm pretty sure you'd know that better than anyone here.
