The mouse cursor from Mac OS X. I may keep this one as well, although it does take some of my precious black blocks.

I decided that if I did the upgraded Mega Man X (armor, boots, helmet, and gun) I wouldn't need dark blue blocks. I like how it turned out. I am however out of black blocks again, and will need to take apart Zero or Mega Man X to make anything new.
An eternal problem, this short supply of black. Must acquire more.

Zero was my favorite character from the Mega Man X series. I was really stoked to see they'd be making Mega Man Zero games, and have all three of them. They are super hard. I plan on making Mega Man X as well, just need dark blue blocks.

Game god John Carmack and crew made a couple kids games in addition to the bloody Doom and Quake games. Commander Keen was a great platformer, and had a number of games in the series. From what I hear they are all available on Steam... I need to get me some of that!
Ah, the Duke of everything Nuking. The first two Duke Nukem games were excellent side scrolling platformer/shooters. The 3rd game was a revolution in multiplayer with its outlandish weapons. The 4th game has been a joke in the gaming industry and community for the past decade.
Will we see Duke Nukem Forever any time soon? My money is on MAYBE.
I redid Samus in a different pose with some of the new colors I got. Again, harder to see some of the darker colors now without backlight... I need to come up with a good way to display these.
Check the little Samus on the screen in the background, thats the digital bitmap I went off to build the physical model.
I got some more colors and the first thing I built was Link from one of the best Zeldas ever, A Link to the Past. Some of the darker colors are hard to see without backlight, hence my MacBook in the background instead of the desk I've been photographing them on.

I'm trying to make Inignot from Aqua Teen Hunger Force and needed green so I swapped the colors from my green koopa troopa to make a red one.
Still don't have enough bricks to make what I want. I did make Err (Urr?) tho, will have pics soon.
A lot of people don't know that Ms. Pac-Man is not actually the same game as Pac-Man. In addition to introducing a new ghost, the ghosts movement patterns are randomized. In Pac-Man there was a set path that they followed, and people memorized that path in order to set some astronomically high scores.
Plus she has a bow on her head.
