Maybe he can upload the psd files because if I check different skins all have something that I can use to make a decent copy(replica) then night as a template offcourse..

I know this is reviving a really dead topic but this skin is too beautiful to die. I did some work to recreate some of the views so that if anyone decided to ever work on it they could have the PSD files. Obviously I have nowhere near the skill that Phyek has but this is what I managed (again all images were made by myself so there should not be a problem if there is I will remove the files):

PSD Settings: Coming Soon (Need to clean up layers)
The PSD files are not that organized but they should do.

Nice post. Thanks for that.
I'll definitely check these out and maybe incorporate some of it into a skin I'm designing which isn't aiming to replicate this but has this skin as its main influence.

If you post PSD of views and make some new views maybe anyone will do the skin...

Ok I managed to do another view and cleaned up the settings PSD except I am having a lot of trouble forming the shadows that are formed at the corner of the highlighted DVD base (If anyone knows how to do that please help).

Please tell me if there is anything to fix before I clean the PSD up. Thanks.

Are you talking about this shadow?
If so - Draw an oval behind the poster, give it some perspective/skew, blur it then reduce opacity if needed.
I think you need to make these slightly darker too, not that important though really.

Yea that section of the cover. I tried using an oval and skewing it except I kept having the problem of it going out into the bottom too much, so I used two separate shapes however if I extend it too far the problem with the shadow extending too far down still remains. I guess I'll just keep trying. Thank you!

Here is the final showcase view with PSD (a few subtle changes from what was previously shown):

After looking through the rest of the mockups posted I am not sure how many of them I will actually be able to complete as I am just not capable. Hopefully, someone else could pick those up and finish them. Also, I do not think I will be to create anything that has not already been done as I am barely able to replicate what phyek has already designed :\.
Start screen: Not capable
Wall view: Complete (other views just a variation of the same wall)
Wall view perspective: Argued to be to resource intensive and I am not sure if I can complete it
Large Wall: Incomplete
Lineup (showcase) view: Complete
Wall view (slide up): Incomplete
Wall view (information along highlighted movie): Incomplete
Home horizontal: Not Capable
Home vertical: Complete

I felt horrible the entire time I was recreating this view as I felt as if I was butchering it every step of the way . The reason his background seems more saturated is simply because phyek actually changed the original photo which I did not so ignore that difference. Here it is:
