Console Creations Skin Contest

Design a skin (both player skins and mob skins) that takes inspiration from the design of a video game console. Any console goes, regardless of whether it's recent or retro, obscure or well known.
The design has to be based strictly on the console itself, not any of the games on the console. Drawing inspiration from any peripherals the console has is, of course allowed. This about the hardware, not the software.

All PMC rules apply.
Each participant may enter up to 3 skins each.
Entries must be either be player skins or mob skins.
All entries must be based on a console and fit the theme
You must note in the description/title what console your entry is based on. (A picture of the console is nice, but not required)
Entries that do not comply with the rules will be disqualified.
Submit a comment with a link to your entry/entries.

All skins will be judged on a scale of 1 to 7 by me with the following criteria:
Quality, Originality and Faithfulness
Quality - Quality measures how aesthetically appealing your entry is and overall how good it looks..
Originality - Originality measures unique your entry is and how much it stands out from the other entries.
Faithfulness - Faithfulness measures how well your entry sticks to the design of the actual console.
This will give you a score out of 21

The top 5 of these skins will then be sent to a community vote where you can vote for your favourite.
Initial Deadline is March 14 (Saturday)
My voting deadline is March 16 (Monday)
The community vote will start on March 16 and run until the 21st. (Saturday)
Winners will be announced and awards will be given out on the day the community vote is completed.

All these times are in Australian Eastern Standard Time. (GMT+10)

Only one award per participant.
1st Place - Custom 16x16 pixel art gold trophy based on your console
2nd Place - 16x16 pixel art silver trophy
3rd Place - 16x16 pixel art bronze trophy
4th and 5th - 16x16 pixel art ribbon

Thanks for the entry! I noticed that you had done a Switch fish. I should note that you are allowed to enter more than one entry (up to 3) so you can enter that too, if you'd like.

Here's my entry! Some people don't consider the switch an actual console so I apologize if you don't!

Looks good!
The switch is a console/handheld hybrid, so I'd count the switch as a console.
