Amazing LEGO NES will make you want to blow cartridges

36 second read


We’ve featured quite a number of things crafted from LEGO here, but this easily has to be my favourite. It’s a to-scale Nintendo Entertainment System, complete with working cartridge doors and all the embellishments you’d expect from the real thing.

The thing was made by Flickr user weltall1028 (via Kotaku), and is honestly pretty damned incredible. Throw in a little Raspberry Pi NES emulator, and it would actually work too. I don;t, however, recall a little man on the inside of my NES.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
