"Vantage", LEGO Game Boy Advance Transformer by Baron von Brunk. Check out the tutorial on Instructables to build your own!

At last, the next LEGOformer in my most popular series — Vantage, a powerful robot that transforms into a Nintendo Game Boy Advance, armed with battery blasters and parody “Boom” automatic shotgun! With a basic design much akin to my Game Boy robot Domaster, along with a refined transformation cycle similar to that of my Game Gear robot Gearhead, this new figure is very sturdy and well-articulated. My previous LEGOformers were built “organically”, as in I’d compile a ton of relevant pieces and build the robot via trial and error — whilst this particular one was my first to be almost entirely designed on the computer with LEGO Digital Designer before being physically built and tested. That being said, the 3D instructional guide was released simultaneously. What was the most challenging part? That Boom shotgun: I spent several days trying to make one that looks like an actual gun as well as having the ability to be held by the robot as a weapon. I chose Doom since that was my favorite GBA game I played in high school back in 2002. My second favorite GBA game was Namco Museum!

YOUR FAVORITE GAME MAY HAVE BEEN DOOM on the gameboy advance BACK IN 2002 BUT THE GAMEBOY WAS SOMETHING I PLAYED WITH BACK IN 1989! then 2002!and the transformers were something that was hugely popular in the USA in 1984!

when I went to the united states patent and trade mark office and filed for a provisional patent they made the mistake of giving me two different application numbers for the same patent! I even remember all the teachers by name who witnessed me do it!

looks like a ripoff of a concept I created back in 2002 in the USA where I took a gameboy advance and turned it into a robot even have the drawing signed and dated 1/1/2002 and even have a prototype of the concept!

A lego GBA is cool enough...

But a transforming GBA in lego! Awesome to the max! Very Soundwave in design.
