Cool Fanmade Lego Soundwave / Gameboy Crossover

1331497231m_SPLASH

So I was browsing the boards this morning when I saw that 2005 Boards member CodeXCDM had shared this Lego Transformers X Nintendo crossover someone had designed and I felt it was too cool not to share!

Based on the classic Nintendo Gameboy, this fan-designed Lego Transformer transforms into Soundwave! Just like the original Soundwave, he has cassettes – they are the game cartridges! And like the original, the weapons form up out of the batteries. The creation is officially named “Domaster and Tetrawing“, and is the creation of Lego creator Julius von Brunk, who you might know of already for recreating the Super Mario Bros. 3 airship in Lego. Check out more of his work here.

This slice of cool and fun news comes to you via Gizmodo.

    Very cool lego/TF Gameboy... and he's offered to put up an instructional guide for making it. Figured it worth sharing.

    My first news credit! Yay! Although I am surprised this was new credit worthy... but hey.. why not!? XD

    Worth noting that on his Facebook Page... von Brunk is providing updates for an instruction guide to this build. Here's a preview he uploaded.

    Might wanna remember Lego has a Pick-A-Brick page that will prolly get a lot of orders in the near future... hehe.

    Hope he provides instructions on this one too at some point... Thanks Mepayne for pointing it out...

    Why? It's the same thing, just made by another company, plus they're interchangeable. How's that a bad thing?

    On what? Robbing LEGO of the money they should be getting for their idea? They were creative enough to think of it and try to encourage creativeness. All HASBRO has done is taken other peoples ideas.

    Just saying, its your choice to let simple licensing be the reason to not experience the joy that is Kre-o.

    Just because I don't like incorrect facts,I shall correct myself. It seems that Lego is actually a rip off of Kiddicraft Self-Locking Bricks. Buts still, two wrongs doesn't equal a right or whatever.

    How is it wrong? Is LEGO suing Hasbro for intellectual property theft? No, they don't have a problem with it, otherwise it wouldn't happen. If they don't have a problem with it, why should you or anyone else?

    I just don't find it to be right to rip something off, just because it's more popular than what you're doing.

    Guys, guys, can we get back on the topic please? This is an awesome custom Lego Transformer! I love all the little touches like the cartridge Soundwave!
