Originally commissioned for used games retailer JJGames, Metroid’s Samus Aran has been recreated using Nintendo cartridges from a few of their older systems, including the Game Boy, Nintendo Entertainment System, Super Nintendo, and the Nintendo 64. The seller is claiming the piece is life-size, and measures Samus in at around 5 feet 8 inches, accounting for her diagonal pose. If you act quickly, the piece can be yours via electronic bidding magic.
The piece is mounted on black particle board, which is reinforced with two-by-fours in the back. It weighs around 150 pounds when everything is packed up for shipping. Unfortunately, it doesn’t ship in a package shaped like a Morph Ball.
A close-up of the painted cartridges:
- Pixelated Metroid cosplay is better than sexy Metroid cosplay
- Here’s a funny thing to do with Metroid on the 3DS
- Samus’ Morph Ball is a pretty great sphere
