I had this old bucket of Legos laying around collecting dust, so I was trying to think of something I could do with them. I also had this extra N64 I didn't need, so I thought "Hey, maybe I'll use it as a toaster. No wait, I know! I'll build a LEGO casing for it!" Well, here's how that turned out.

BTW, if somehow you've never heard of Legos, click here for the wikipedia article.

It's a little miscoloured, especially the contoller, because I had only a couple of buckets of blocks to work with, but I think it turned out pretty well. What do you think of it? Good or bad, I'd like to know.

...And yes, the controller is exponentially uncomfortable.

:lol: That's too cool!

Say, did you remember to leave a space for cooling? Don't want it to overheat.

25/10, though. That's the coolest thing I've seen in ages. I especially like the Mario and Luigi. Great touch! :D

I like the Mop "official seal" too. :D

These pictures make me sadder. Some people have a N64s like it's nothing and here I am... with not a single machine. :( :( :( :(

I know the feeling. My game collection fits in a small drawer.

Oh, and 47/10 for that Lego-64. Legos are probably the one thing I loved more than video games as a kid. You have combined them into one orgy of fun. I would love to have sexual relations with it, time permitting.

I completely removed the plastic casing for the controller, and built a LEGO casing around the circuit board inside and the analog stick. I glued the rubber buttons onto the board with puzzle preserver so they wouldn't slide around. The controller port is covered, so no memory/rumble paks. A rumble pak would probably destroy the thing anyway. :lol:
I'll probably redesign the controller at some point, making it more colour-coded, and hopefully less pointy corners.

Yep. On the bottom (not shown), there's an open line down the middle. Also, on each side are small vents:



Where the red/white/yellow lines end is where the vent starts. That's another area I may redesign to make it colour-coded. Anyways, the top half of the N64's casing has been removed, and there's quite a bit of empty space inside the LEGO casing. I kept the bottom half of the N64's plastic case on for stability reasons. I'm not too worried about it though, because I don't really use it to play games.

Isn't it kind of ironic that you're a member of an N64 forum when you don't own one...? In fact, I can't recall you saying you own any system... Who are you?

If you had read the other threads. You will know that your statement is incorrect.
