    Man I get these but I’m too heavy handed to take apart my switch controller and remove stuff.

    they are specifically for the GS Candy Con controller, they are made for the faceplate to pop off easily

    i haven't tried them but my coworkers and customers have only said good things. The base controller without a faceplate is $35, and the TF kits are $17

    They’re not for the controllers you (probably) already have, don’t worry.

    Price is close enough for me. I will likely grab the Devastator version.

    There's also those sticky "skins", but those can leave a nasty residue behind if you ever peel them off.

    Alas, I mainly play my Switch in portable mode and don't use my PC much for gaming.

    Keep in mind these controllers are limited to Nintendo switch and PC only.

    So if you play on Xbox or PS, not a great controller to buy.

    I don't see a downside since I mainly play on PC.

    Well for you and me yeah no downside, but again it’s a pretty massive downside for people with Xboxes.

    Unless if you buy those adapters such as the Mayflash Magic-S Pro, the Brook Wingman series for retro consoles such as the Wingman SNES or the Wingman SD, or the Wingman PS2, etc....

    I wish I was invested enough in gaming to want to drop $50-ish on a new controller when I have a perfectly acceptable one, because that Hot Rod skin is great.

    I mean, none of my friends have flames on their controllers. It's a lot to live up to.

    I’m sure they were going for a templated look, but feels like a miss/ lack of attention to detail that Devestator doesn’t have the 85 battle scene and Hot Rod doesn’t have 86.

    ‘hot Rod and Jazz seem like they are working the best to me, where it’s more referential to their designs/decos and less “recreating dimensional elements with flat art” like Soundwave and Devestator. Soundwave looks the jankiest to me.

    Clearly somebody didn\'t get the memo that you can only do things with Optimus, Megatron and Bumblebee. Maaaaybe you can do a Starscream. 

    /s

    These look great and nice to see some of the other characters get some headspace.

    Question for those who know better than me. Is there a way to connect this with a ps4 with some sort of adapter?
