Domaster & Tetrawing - Nintendo Game Boy & Tetris Transformers!
Behold: Domaster & Tetrawing, heroic Nintendobots! Transforming from Nintendo Game Boy system & Tetris game to robot & bird, and back!
About this creation
Update 4/11/2012 - Want to see these bad boys mass marketed in major retailers? Then help support the latest CUUSOO entry! If we gain 10,000 supporters -- who support by simply joining, voting and commenting, and NOT through donations -- LEGO will personally consider having this sold as a real toy!

Update 4/8/2012 - The instructional guide is now completed and ready for viewing on Instructables! Parts list, transformation cycles, and information on obtaining pieces -- all included!

Update 3/27/2012 - Thank you so much for all of the feedback and positive comments, both here and throughout the internet! I've been getting a lot of questions asking if I'll post a custom parts list and instructional guide, therefore I began breaking ground for making 3-D CAD drawings of build-your-own booklet! Check out my Facebook fan page for updates in when it'll be published, and don't forget to "like" it!































The name Domaster is an amalgamation of "Dot Matrix with Stereo Sound", the blurb written above the screens of old Game Boys. The name Tetrawing was coined by New York burlesque girl Dangrr Doll who does a Tetris-themed routine with D20 Burlesque -- a geek/gamer sexy striptease troupe in my town!

This project was the sequel to my popular Nintendo/Transformers crossover, "Plasmashock" the NES Zapper. I spent about a month or so (give or take) working on this Game Boy and cartridge -- the latter of the two took freakin' forever to engineer properly. The final touches of the Game Boy came the custom water-slide clear decals that I printed for the first time ever, and surprisingly didn't screw up a whole lot (aside from the obvious crooked Nintendo Game half above the right thigh of the robot). Also, the "Dot Matrix" label printed out much darker than expected on my laser printer, ergo it's hard to see -- but the blue-on-gray text for the buttons and Game Boy logo look damn fine! As for Tetrawing, his sticker is actually a high-res computer printout on glossy paper, cut apart like a puzzle and decoupaged to his LEGO frame with the help of Elmer's Glue.

The 2 AA battery blasters are a nice touch, if I must say so myself. It wasn't really difficult trying to engineer a sturdy but hollow system for the back of the legs to keep the two batteries encased; if anything, the head and arms took the longest to build on the robot. The arms turn sideways and fold behind the screen, whilst the head is attached to a series of hooks and hinges to fold back. The robot's feet fold at 90-degree angles and then slide into the lower legs. The legs rotate and form the bottom of the Game Boy. I used tiles to create the D-pad, A & B buttons, and the Select/Start buttons -- which also took some time to figure out; originally I had planned to use thin, small gray bars to be the Select/Start buttons, and even tried using the small headlight clips from Star Wars Clone Trooper helmets.

You made this creation, WOW!, I love this creation, you have a talent that most builders don't have (like myself) you can make a creation that can be created into other things and still have all the details to each thing that it can be made into (if that makes sense). What is your secret? and thank you so much if you had the time to read this comment, you are so talented.

Nice creation, I got a original gameboy over the summer at goodwill for $4 I didn't have any games for it so my friend (the creator) gave me his old gameboy camera (creepeest game ever) but then I got games like Tetris and a mint condition copy of super mario land 2: 6 golden coins (million seller edition) And it's really growing on me now and with this awesome creation every time I look into its pea soup green screen i imagine it turning into a big robot Sincerely, the builder

Quoting Green Ghost . Love the soundwave influences though out. A truly increadible build! Would you mind too terribly if I made a simmalar GBA. I think it would be less blocky so there would be a much different shape. I'm only asking cause I'd feel like I was stealing if i didn't, and don't worry I will link to this creation at the end of mine if I do build one.
Go ahead! I'm even thinking about making a Game Boy Advance (or a Game Gear) next!

Wish we had toys like this while I was still a kid. Back then all I really knew them for was making basic stuff. You've gone above and beyond anything I've ever seen before. Seriously this and the NES Zapper you've designed should perhaps see if the actual Lego company can sign you on and then get permission from Nintendo to remake the old classics for us collectors that would pay to have a part of our childhood preserved.

Quoting Paul Vermeesch Duracell all the way! Great work!
Although personally, I'm a fan of Rayovac Renewals. I chose Duracell since they'd be easy to duplicate with LEGO due to their trademark copper-top brand recognition -- which wouldn't require any extra stickers or decals!

Yep, it was proudly flaunted on Kotaku and Destructoid following my CNN interview -- which of course chose me due to my previous notoriety of the NES Zapper. Thank you very much, by the way!

Quoting Chronos Omega Great work! Now you need to build a Decepticon who turns into an N64 controller...
Actually, I plan on making the dreaded Segacons wage war against the Nintendobots! If anything, the N64 controller would be like Blurr, and the N64 as Ultra Magnus! (although, ironically the three Nintendobots built thus far resemble Megatron, Soundwave and Laserbeak)
