The suggester says: It's a HUGE cardboard gameboy! It looks like it took forever to make and it is detailed down to the smallest feature. It even has a giant cardboard game pack. Cardboard views by ~MaboroshiTira

Ok. so here is the whole thing. All of the buttons are pushable. The on and off switch moves, and the volume dial turns.
I also made a removable game cartridge.

Yup. that's that. Done with cardboard for a long time.

EDIT: Oh my gosh guys...I am literally in tears. I never thought this would get so many views and favorites. And even end up on the front page! Thank you all so much. I can't even. This is really something i never thought would happen. ;A;

EDIT AGAIN: Aww, thanks for the DD!

Aww

So close

Still could be awesome though..

Imagine building it the whole wiring of the Gameboy and have the screen.
Now that's what I call a game BOI

This looks incredible! I'm astounded by the detail and thought that went into this - and based on some of the earlier comments and replies, it sounds like you did it pretty fast, too?

Really amazing work with recreating the fonts (I find that fun, personally, and have been tasked with it for work, but I've never tried in cardboard, and its not the easiest of mediums :D). I can't stop looking at all the folds and interlinking pieces - its such a smooth design that its only in a few areas you can even see the true nature of it - the actual folded card around the on/off slider, the cut edge of the 'Nintendo' logo and such. Even the screw heads visible at the back look seamless. And I have to ask - though I know this image has now been up for years - how many cardboard boxes did it take? XD

It just looks stunning; such a faithful, well done recreation and I think you can tell this was something close to your heart. Congrats on the DD - beyond deserved :)
