At first glance you think "ah, a Nintendo NES". Then on closer inspection you think "wait a second, that's brick-built" and you're impressed. Then you learn that it has a NES classic inside and can actually be played and your mind is blown. What better way to store your minuscule NES classic (that is, if you were lucky enough to get one, I was not). Well played BrickinNick, well played.
Builder Chris McVeigh has taken advantage of some new parts and building techniques to update his excellent little model of the classic Nintendo Entertainment System. Makes me want to play a little Super Mario Brothers or Legend of Zelda, in all their 8-bit glory. The 2.0 building guide is available know at chrismcveigh.com
I vividly remember the time when Nintendo was king. The NES was everywhere, and everyone played it. Now you can relive those golden days and do a little fun building thanks to Chris McVeigh. His latest set, which has 220 pieces, insertable game cartridges and is pretty awesome, is available for pre-order. Click through to get yours.
Like the Power Glove, Disk System and Virtual Boy, R.O.B. is one of those things from Nintendo lore (although I have to say, I did own a Virtual Boy) . Those things everyone knows about, but few owned, or even saw. This R.O.B. MOC by Bricking Robo is remarkably accurate, and instantly recognizable. Makes me want to play a game of Gyromite.
