In this section we help promote LEGO Cuusoo idea’s to help them reach the 10,000 likes needed for their idea to get created! This week we feature the idea called “Game Boy & Tetris Transformers: Domaster & Tetrawing” created by vonbrunk. Here’s what the creator had to say about the idea:
“This project was made by me about a month ago, and in the recent weeks, gained plenty of attention amongst the video game and Transformers communities! Domaster is the transforming Nintendo Game Boy, whilst Tetrawing is his bird partner, who changes into a Game Boy cartridge. The two fake AA batteries double as weapons, which are fully storable inside the Game Boy unit. The logos are custom waterslide decals I created, which can hopefully become regular print-on LEGO tiles if this gets marketed.
Creating this project had me run into several engineering issues due to usage of limited kinds of parts; in other words, if this becomes marketed, hopefully LEGO can re-mold new parts to make the design and construction more sturdy and streamlined — such as perhaps slightly changing the shape/size of a few Technic pieces — as there are some minor problems with stability and strength. Think of this project as a prototype, which can be greatly improved upon when given into the hands of the finest toy engineers of LEGO! I’m sure with some additional improvements and newer part additions, this could certainly become a sought-after collectible for video game nerds, Transformers fanboys and fellow LEGO craftsmen alike — united as one!

P.S. – As asked by a supporter, yes, this robot transforms 100% without removing any parts (aside from the weapons)! Read the Instructables link above to see photos of the transformation cycle; the feet slide into the legs, the legs rotate and form the bottom of the Game Boy, the arms and head fold behind the back via Technic ball joints.
