If you're a regular GamesRadar forumite then you will undoubtedly already have seen this amazing carved alabaster Game Boy crafted by official friend of GamesRadar, 510BrotherPanda. As previously stated, it is amazing and worth posting here for any folks that haven't yet admired its chiselled beauty.
Why carve alabaster into the shape of Nintendo's chunky monochromatic masterpiece with a particularly tumbling down version of Tetris on the screen? 510BP explains: "It's supposed to represent the second half of the year 1989, from the North American release of the Game Boy/Tetris (July/August), the Loma Prieta earthquake (October 17th), and the start of the Berlin Wall's removal (November?)... The little Golden Gate bridge was meant to represent San Francisco."
And he did a very thorough job: "I know it's hard to see because it's white stone, but I put the headphone jack, ON switch, volume and contrast control wheels, link cable and AC adapter ports, and the little 'cartridge locking notch thing' on there."
This isn't the first time 510BrotherPanda has impressed with his immense skills of crafting. Previously he made a crochet Metroid arm cannon that looked like a penis. That was also amazing.
If anyone else is looking to showcase stuff they've made that is somehow game-related, feel free to post to the Art Board on the GamesRadar forums. All skill levels welcome.
