Arcade sticks are a necessity for proper fighting action on a console, but you know what? Arcade sticks are expensive. Now Tupperware, it's a lot easier to get your hands on some Tupperware.
And once you've got hold of some, get hold of some arcade stick components (OK, that last bit's probably a bit harder) and throw 'em inside the Tupperware, wire everything up and hey presto. A Tupperware arcade stick. Cram a sandwich in there, keep the stick in the fridge overnight and you're set.
