Amazing Game Boy/toy hybrids ⊟
If you’d like, you can buy one of these one-of-a-kind pieces, with its adorable cartridge accessory, for yourself. I love that Darth Vader; his chest might as well be a Game Boy already.

Donatello and Raphael Game Boy Colors ⊟
There’s a TMNT NES in there, too — all of this custom hardware comes from Doyle Dean, who is selling the pieces and many others on Etsy.
So we have these Donatello and Raphael GBCs, and we saw that Donatello Game Boy last month… I haven’t seen a Leonardo one yet, but here’s a Michelangelo Game Boy from one of our talented readers, Matt Quinton:
My 3D photos never turn out this cool ⊟
It’s hard to take an awesome photo with the 3DS’s camera — the feature was obviously built with gameplay functions in mind and not for taking high quality shots. This is still the coolest wigglepic I’ve seen taken with a 3DS.
The above shot turned out so cool because No Anchor took it with a fancy Nimslo stereo camera. I hope someone caught the Game Boy Color and that it’s now in the hands of someone who loves the portable.
By the way, if you’re looking for a new site to post your 3D photos to (now that 3D Porch is just an archive), upload them to Stereotastic with your 3DS!
Thank you, Light Boy Game Keeper ⊟

Still the most beautiful Game Boy ever ⊟
We featured this design a month ago before it was assembled, but I’m sharing the custom Game Boy again since it’s all put together and absolutely gorgeous.

To quote Juicy J, “All this green in my pockets, you could call it turtle power.” Fitting tributes to the best turtle from the arcade game. The fanart comes from Thomas Mikkelsen, while the Game Boy mod is from Balkani.
Crocheted Slime, Game Boy, Pokeball iPhone cases ⊟
I can’t believe I wasn’t able to get to these sooner, because oh my god there was a crocheted Slime in my inbox for like a week. MaDonna Sheehy made these rad iPhone cases, and put them for sale on Etsy.
I don’t want to influence your purchase decision too much, but I will say that if crocheted Slimes become a trend, my time on Earth will have been worth it.

"Blue Red Love" ⊟
Shout-outs to all the Game Boys, Link Cables, Pokémons, and Rare Candies out there. This tribute to all those beloved things comes from Georgina Chacón (portfolio/DeviantArt) and will be featured at Fangamer ♥ Attract Mode. That “Game Art/Chiptune/Indie Arcade/Drinkathon Seattle Special” kicks off at 1927 Events on August 30 — jump to the Facebook event page here.
Smash Bros’ latest assist is a Game Boy gem ⊟
The newest assist trophy — items that allow fighters to summon a video game character to help them in Smash Bros. — is Sable Prince from Kaeru no Tame ni Kane wa Naru, or The Frog For Whom the Bell Tolls.
"He transforms into a snake or a frog, and unloads multiple attacks on any opponent he catches. Keep attacking your foes when they’re trapped in his dust cloud."
Longtime readers will remember the title as first-party Game Boy release that never made it outside of Japan. We’ve featured it here several times in the past because it’s super charming, it shares a lot of similarities with The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, and it received a fan translation a few years ago — go back and play it!

What is there to not love about this photo? ⊟
That mustache. Those pants. The cradled cat. RUDE DOG. I was never this cool as a kid. Thanks to tommy_hoodninja for the pic.

Seems like Game Boy graduated just the other day ⊟
And now it’s 25! Oh, how time flies. :oP
This photo comes from photographer Laura Greenfield’s book Fast Forward: Growing Up in the Shadow of Hollywood.
You did it, Game Boy ⊟
You made it to 25 years old (in the U.S.). With some nudging from Game & Watch, you kicked off an entire line of Nintendo portables. You made Tiny Cartridge possible. You gave us the best Zelda. You popularized chiptunes. You are awesome.
I should have prepared a better image or a post, but I forgot about the system’s North American launch anniversary, so this is what we have. I’m tweeting a bunch of throwback Game Boy photos, though, and I have a number of posts that have sat in my Tumblr Likes for years, which I’ll get around to sharing over the next few days. Props to Cait for the GBP pic.
