Feb 4 2008Gameboy Bricks Are What They Sound Like

Some guy in the Netherlands is making Gameboy shaped bricks. They're bricks that look like Gameboys but can't play Tetris. He's charging €31.30 (~$46) per brick with worldwide shipping included. $46!? You could pave your sidewalk with real Gameboys for cheaper. There's a picture of some glazed ones after the jump, but he doesn't sell them that way -- you have to do it yourself. Just make sure to not to drink any of the glaze if it's lead-based. I know what you're thinking -- who the hell would drink glaze anyways? And the answer to that, my friends, is me.

These would look awesome if he made them sober.

why?

I think they are awesome but f*** if I'm paying $46 a piece for them.
I'll just head down to the local hobby shop, grab some supplies and start gameboy bricking for myself.
I needed something to do anyway.

Cool, but what the hell are you supposed to do with them? (Besides chuck them at people, I mean?)

He should of just used 360's. Most of them are bricks anyway! *RIMSHOT*

But in all seriousness, I checked ebay and it is infact cheaper to use real gameboys... and no, it is not hard to make these things yourself. (Except maybe the furnace part)

"well made product page" hahahahaha! :D

The picture makes it look more like a f***ing plush than a brick.

I really like the Gameboy "bricks" and I'd love to see more pictures of the patio with the ivy on it. There's something very pleasing and soothing about that image.
