Ed Webb have been customizing faceplates for some time now. He’s created some of the best looking faceplates out there. Believe it or not, there is a market for these custom faceplates as well as other unique and original promotional faceplates given by publishers and developers (ie. Bioshock faceplate, etc.). At a 2008 quote from Original Xbox Magazine, â€œI attended Zero Hour at the 360 launch, when the idea of personalized plates was new,â€ says Ed Webb, a 41-year-old Xbox MVP better known as SpaceGhost2K. â€œTime has passed, and the only personalization Iâ€™ve seen is people deciding which corporate plate they want on their â€™box. Thatâ€™s not â€˜personalâ€™ to me.â€ He showed off a chunck of his personalized faceplates at the Microsoft store event in Mission Viejo, CA back in August.

Next up is a lot of 2 rare original Xbox: Limited Edition Halo 2 Clear Blue Xbox with an upgraded 120gb HDD and a 1st Anniversary Edition Smoke Black Xbox from Japan. Both systems are in one listing. The xboxes are a little dusty but considering the rarity of these things, I don’t think you’d mind.
