I've got a serious case of DS 'Phat' envy

Until recently, I considered the original design of the DS (aka the DS "Phat") to be downright ugly--due in large part (I think) to its tank-like boxiness.

Well, a switch in my brain must have been flipped in the last few days, because I now find the DS "Phat" design rather appealing. In fact, if I had the dough--and if I didn't want a DSi, too--I'd do my best to nab one off of eBay.

In a perfect world, I'd pick up a DS "Phat" that's been modded to look like those old Game & Watch machines (like this one). Of course, this Koopa Troopa-inspired design is pretty terrific, too:

Which DS design do you prefer: DS "Phat," DSlite, DSi or DSi LL/XL?

I like the look of the lite but the functionality of the DSi. But that custom jobby is gorgeous!

Isn't it? I mean, I like the sleek look of the DSlite and DSi, but there's something interesting about the angular look of the DS "Phat," too.
