Behold the Nintendo Lego-tainment System

Two Swedish dudes have decided to spend God knows how much time recreating NES games entirely through Legos. It’s absurdly awesome, and especially since they’re not just doing the normal games — sure, Super Mario Bros. and Punch-Out are included, but so is Track & Field II (the awesome taekwondo event) and DuckTales. The video up top is just one of three; the other two are after the jump. (Via Kotaku)



About Author

Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
