Sega Dreamcast Stuffed Into a Millennium Falcon

By - Source: Tom's Guide US | B 14 comments

Awesome console mod stuffs a Sega Dreamcast into a Millennium Falcon -- And it all works! (The Dreamcast, that is, not the Millennium Falcon.)

We've showed some pretty amazing console mods here, but this one might just be our most favorite yet.

The Dreamcast still stands as one of the most compactly designed consoles, especially when considering only the original releases of consoles and not the eventual "slim" revisions. But no matter how well Sega did in packaging its last console, it can't beat a fully working Dreamcast stuffed inside a Millennium Falcon.

Check out the video below:

Dreamcast Stuffed into Millennium Falcon

This mod was created by "pezzapoo" and featured on Ben Heck's Showcase. Pezzapoo wrote in the mod's description:

"As soon as I saw these caricature versions of the Star wars toys I thought about the Dreamcast and how the fun little console would feel right at home inside one. Strangely the DC game port facia fitted directly into the toy with about a mill to spare so I knew it was meant to be! Two side docking ring fans keep the hot DC from melting. Lots of soldering and the switch was added to turn on the GDROM. No paint was applied."

    pretty cool i suppose..doesn't look all that special to me though. I guess i'd rather see it done with a newer console, but still doesn't quite 'awe' me :/ . better than anything I could probably do though

    Poor Dreamcast, it was ahead of it's time and died early. I still remember when I got Virtual Fighter 3 for Christmas when I wanted Virtual On. It took great effort to keep the initial shock of disappointment from my face. Of course I went out and bought Virtual On a few days latter and I loved that game ^_^, but Virtual Fighter not so much.

    It would have been dignified had it been in the original model of the ship from the 70's

    How does one insert a game disc to actually play it?

    It seems to me that similarly interesting mods could be done with a PS2 Slim. That mobo is pretty small...

    Can the Millennium Falcon play Shenmu II? MDK2? DOA2?

    Im not even a star wars fan...and I want that badly. 95% because the dreamcast is the best system to last such a short amount of time. Damn PS2.

    @carlhenry:
    You're probably thinking of the Xbox mod:
