Hey all! I just completed a MOC that was part of Round #6 of the MOCOlympics over on MOCPages.com. The category I had to build in was called 'Atari' and the goal was to build something from classic video games (think pre-1995). I started this round about the same as I have started all the other rounds…with no idea what to build. In fact, after the categories were posted, I decided to take a few days and just think about what to build. Unfortunately, business travel came up meaning I had more days than I had originally thought to think about my idea…and subsequently less days to build. That said, I came home from my trip and put in many, many hours building what you see here…a replica Nintendo Entertainment System complete with two controllers, Tetris game cartridge, and TV.
So why did I decide to build an NES? I think mainly just to see if I could. I’ve never done something I would consider ‘art’ or ‘scuplture’ in LEGO and I really wanted to give it a try and see if I could recreate something directly to scale. I must say that it was a real challenge to get the dimensions and proportions correct, but I think I managed. The console, controllers, and cartridge are all within about a 1/16 of an inch of the actual dimensions. The TV was not really based on anything and was just my own little 13” TV creation.
You can check out the rest of the series over on my Flickr photostream.
Hope you all enjoy it!
