Mega Man x Kidrobot Mini Figure Series
Kidrobot will be following up their successful Street Fighter line with a Mega Man series. No photos have been revealed yet, but my wild guess is that most of the toys will be a standard Mega Man sculpt with different colorways representing the different power-ups, like the palette swaps in the games.
This is pretty cool since the Munny platform already lends itself well to Mega Man’s design. I think for a lot of kids who grew up in the ’80s and then found out about customizing Munnys, their first idea was to do a Mega Man piece.

Robot Masters Custom Light-Up NES

Console customizers Platinumfungi and Custom NES Guy whipped up this ballin’ backlit NES to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Mega Man. It features a sexy blue color scheme with Mega Man’s adorable 8-bit mug on the controllers and lid (and those blue buttons tho!), but the standout feature is the display of robot masters - and they light up!

New Hyrule Historia Cover Is Pure Class
Hey, listen! The book detailing the history of The Legend of Zelda just got a new and improved cover. I was able to flip through the Japanese version, and while I wasn’t super impressed, I’ll definitely be picking up the English version. The book more heavily covered the recent games and only had a few pages dedicated to the pre-N64 titles. I’d love to play a magic ocarina to travel back to 1985 and ‘86 while the original game was being developed, but since that’s probably not going to happen, I’ll settle for the few pages of insight this book provides.

Video Game Art Made Out Of NES Controllers

Erika Iris Simmons uses the wires from old NES controllers to recreate classic video game characters like Mario, Link, and Pac-Man. This is part of her “Ghosts in the Machine” project where she recreates celebrities and various other pop culture icons using every day materials like VHS and cassette tape.

You can buy these pieces from Simmons’ site for $2,000. Or you could probably just buy some NES controllers and frames and make your own for way cheaper.

Digital Camo Nintendo Zapper
DeviantART user PrinceKaname teamed up with his dad to stencil the O.G. Nintendo Zapper into the manly digital weapon that you see above. They still probably have to cheat by holding it up to the screen when they play Duck Hunt, though. That game can get brutal.
