The Hulk , A Lego Superhero Creation by Boyzwiththemosttoyz
This SO SO SO much better than the original set!
My largest LEGO creation to date: a 5-foot replica of an original Nintendo controller - that’s actually wired to play as a real controller with my NES emulator! To see the whole photo shoot with details on the construction, check out my Tumblr blog entry:

This video consists of about 20 minutes of raw game footage, sped-up x2 into a quick 3 minute montage with the orchestrated Super Mario Bros. theme song (by the Boston Pops Orchestra)!
Built entirely from LEGO bricks, plates and tiles, and using the magic of Technic shock absorbers, I managed to create functional buttons which reciprocate when pressed. The large buttons make contact with momentary pushbuttons from Radio Shack, which are then wired and soldered to the circuitry of an actual NES controller taken apart. The controller uses a USB converter and ultimately plugs into my computer to play ROMs! Playing games is on this thing is rather difficult, as it’s like a giant arcade pad. Some games in particular that required dual usage of the A & B buttons (notably Super Mario 3 and R.C. Pro-Am); in some instances of the video, you’ll see me accidentally throw Mario off a cliff, as it’s difficult to jump and hold on to the run [B] button simultaneously! Playing Dr. Mario and Tetris, on the other hand were rather simple. Merely coordinating the D-pad with a few pushes of the A button were all it took. -Baron von Brunk
