The ‘Backlit TMNT / Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles NES’

Growing up in the 80s, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles made a huge impact on me. The cartoons, the movies, the games, the toys, the costumes, the clothing – they were everywhere, and they were awesome. If you grew up in that generation you were basically guaranteed to like something about them. Of all the memories I have though, playing 2 player TMNT II: The Arcade Game on the NES have to be some of the best.  Fighting hundreds of Foot Soldiers with my best friend at my side was like a dream come true.

Backlit Mega Man 2 NES – 25th Anniversary Edition

As many of you probably know by now, I’m a big fan of Mega Man. Specifically though, I grew up playing Mega Man 2, so that’s the one I really have a soft spot for. I enjoy all of them, but the second in the series stands as one of my all time favorite NES games. It’s actually sitting on my desk right now.

FOR SALE – The Backlit Legend of Zelda NES

Well, the time has come to sell off my Prototype Backlit Legend of Zelda NES! This is a collaborative creation that Custom NES Guy and I made awhile back. It was featured on Kotaku and countless other gaming sites, so it is somewhat famous :)

The Link design was all cut out and created by hand. When I started this project I had no idea how to create something like this. I did a lot of R&D and eventually came up with what you see here. I have since moved on to other techniques, but I’m still fond of this older design.

The system and controllers are painted with all professional automotive paints and clear coat.

There is only one, and I have no intentions of creating an identical unit. So, this is your only opportunity to get this gem of a collector’s piece!

If you’re interested in purchasing it, hop over to my Facebook page and send me a message. Thanks!

Mighty No. 9 Cosplay – Beck’s Helmet

As a life long Mega Man fan, I was thrilled to hear that Keiji Inafune and his company Comcept are creating the unofficial spiritual successor to the blue bomber, entitled “Mighty No. 9″. It’s a return to the classic side scrolling 2D action games of days gone by, yet has many new innovative features that should spice up the experience.

The game is being funded via Kickstarter. Please check out this direct link to their campaign and help support them in this endeavor :D

Mega Man hard hat enemy, “Met”, cosplay

Mega Man Hard Hat Enemy Met cosplay metall

I’ve been on a total Mega Man kick for awhile now. My most recent project being this basic “Met” robot enemy. It’s the enemy that is just a hard hat sitting on the ground until you get close to it. Then, it pops up and shoots bullets at you.

This particular build has a removable hard hat so you can have the robot in either pose. If/when I build version 2.0 I would like to have it actually shoot something, probably ping pong balls, and maybe even pop up. We’ll see :)

If you’re interested to see how I built this, read on!
