Tiny Cartridge 3DS

The Simple Life of a Pikachu lamp ⊟

A Dealextreme special, of course. If you want to wake up next to this face, you’ll have to wait, as it’s unfortunately out of stock.

You guessed it (and saw the watermark in several places): this li’l guy is a Dealextreme offering. Probably wouldn’t be able to see over the wheel of his Bowser car, poor guy.

Mario and Luigi style eye shades

Been a while since I featured some Dealextreme garbage! Sorry I’ve been remiss, as I’ve cost you several opportunities to sleep with half a Mario face on your face. 

Both the Mario and Luigi styles cost $2.20 from Dealextreme.

With the launch of a new console, and a new Mario game, let us not forget what’s really important in the world of Nintendo: unlicensed Mario junk from Dealextreme.

Here we have some truly excellent (for certain values of “excellent”) phone accessories, including a novelty handset in two colors – Dealextreme finally finds a reasonable excuse for these silly handsets, calling them “radiation protection handsets”  – and these awesome surprised-looking Mario and Luigi “anti-dust plugs" for your headphone jack.

Hey, the Wii U has a headphone jack! THESE ARE WII U ACCESSORIES NOW.

I’ve seen plenty of Game Boy-style iPhone cases, but this is new: a Game Boy replacement back cover for iPhone 4S. Are you so committed to looking like you’re listening to the back of a small GameBoy that you’re willing to take your phone apart?

DealExtreme will issue you the supplies for your challenge.

Pega’s PS Vita Car Stand (click for larger images). You’ve got that fancy new Vita; don’t hesitate to mount it on your car’s dashboard, so you can watch The Tester on the go or use the Vita’s Google Maps to navigate.*

If you want the Vita to get out of your dreams and into your car, you can buy one of these from (where else) Dealextreme for $10.30.

*Oh my god don’t do any of these things.

USB Rechargeable Gaming Hand Grip Holder w/ Speakers for Nintendo 3DS. Now this… this is an accessory. It’s got grips, speakers, a stand … speaker covers that look like shiny fans … forget that Expansion Slide Pad business, this is what the 3DS was really missing.

If your lifestyle is unable to support an accessory that flashy, Dealextreme also offers the spartan “Compact Stand Holder,” which is about as simple as a 3DS/DS stand could get.

Nintendogs 3DS carrying case. Being from Dealextreme, you know this item is a) unlicensed and b) soooo cheap ($4.80).

For a bargain-priced, knockoff 3DS case, this looks really cute. It also has pockets for three games inside, and comes with a rubber strap, which might be useful, I guess.

Being a less-than-$5 3DS case, I suppose it also runs a risk of just falling apart…

For years, you’ve been able to buy replacement shells for DS Lites from Dealextreme, ranging from those based on existing colors, to limited-edition model knockoffs, to random colorways and logos.

Now the site is selling “refurbished” DS Lite systems with the shells already installed! For about $97, you can get a not-entirely-factory-standard Dragon, Naruto, Dragon Ball, Zelda, or Pokemon DS (among others).

A warning: as 1UP EIC Jeremy Parish found out when the DS Lite he bought from eBay turned out to have been refurbed with a knockoff shell, the construction and the quality of the plastic aren’t up to the real thing. Still, it could be fun… or it could be the worst idea.

"Cute Mario Face Changing Figure Toy Keychain," available from Dealextreme for just $3.30. I’m pretty sure this toy proves that unlicensed Mario toys have the genuine article officially beat, with its spectacular off-model-ness, the rotating facial expressions, and… the backpack. Why is he wearing a backpack?

As with some other Dealextreme toys, this is shipped in “random colors,” so you’ll end up with either red or green Mario. Not Luigi — green Mario.

Three wildly different 3DS docks from Dealextreme. For around $7-8, you can charge your 3DS by standing it up on its short side or its hinge side, and you get a nice blue LED no matter which you choose.

Dealextreme is also stocking a rather nice-looking 28-game case, for just $3.90. Could be useful if you need giant 3DS cases in bulk…

Kung-Fu Panda full replacement case for DS Lite. The official end of the DS Lite’s lifespan does not mark the end of off-brand shells, as evidenced by this completely random item at Dealextreme. If you want to make your DS Lite advertise a 2008 Jack Black cartoon, you can do so for just $9.40.
Over the years, Dealextreme has built up an impressive catalog of unofficial replacement cases, including those made to look like Nintendo World Store exclusives, rare cross-promotions, and random junk. I’d try one myself if I weren’t chicken — and if I didn’t still love the look of my crimson/black DS Lite.
