Zelda Wedding Rings: A Link to Your Soulmate
If you’re thinking about getting married, and both you and your significant other are into classic video games, then I can’t think of anything better than these Zelda wedding bands as a symbol of your undying commitment to love, honor, and cherish one another (and occasionally dust off the old NES console together.)

This LEGO motorized Tumbler is so detailed that you might think it was made by Wayne Industries, but it was actually made by a guy named Sariel. The man should build for Batman himself – or at least change his name to Lucius.

Cardboard Nintendo Game Boy Color Has One Color: Cardboard
Oh man. I have always wanted a hug a giant Game Boy Color made out of cardboard. And that geeky chick in the pic created one. MaboroshiTira made this giant non-handheld by taking a bunch of boxes, chopping them up and turning them a larger-than-life nostalgic gaming device.
