As a slightly sentimental fool, sitting on the shelf directly above my workspace is an original Nintendo Game Boy that fills me with moments of reminisce. LEGO sculptor Chungpo Cheng has created a smashing rendition that would not look out of place in my hands or alongside any of his other life-size models of Minifig utensils. The iconic “three rounded and one sharp angle” corners of the Game Boy have been captured nicely, and the spacing between the buttons brings brick-built gaming to the streets.
What really gets me, though, is the power light. Quite a few LEGO Game Boy’s have been made over the years, but this is one of the first I have seen that has such a realistic looking screen. My guess is the light was made out of a red mechanical claw pushed through the back of the ever popular headlight brick.
