Nintendo 64 Legoformer
For "The Baron" Julius von Brunk, Legos aren't just some ordinary passion. He creates incredible Lego masterpieces that actually transform into characters. His work has been seen at a Nintendo store in New York, on the Discovery Channel and Web sites, and in many major publications.
In this gallery, we've assembled a few of these "Legoformers" (as von Brunk calls them on his entertaining Web site). The collection kicks off with a Lego-fied Nintendo 64. Keep in mind that these elaborate Lego models run nearly to scale and impressively transform without needing to remove parts. These are 100 percent real Lego pieces, with occasional Technic bits and bobs. No glue here, folks.
The Nintendo 64 Legoformer (von Brunk refers to this as the "Ultra Hexacon") will likely knock the socks off any Nintendo enthusiast, as it faithfully mimics the design of the original console and has fun little details, such as controller ports, a cartridge slot, and other touches. Von Brunk created the mock console along with controller and games as part of a submission to the 2013 Instructables Toy Block contest.
Click through the gallery to see this Nintendo 64 -- and other creations such as N64 controller, game cartridges, Game Boy, and Game Gear -- transform.
