Crowning King Gary: The Winners

Decked out in plate mail fashioned from Nintendo 64 consoles and cartridges, Gary, King of the N64, certainly looked regal at Otakon 2012. His background, however, seemed kind of stale and bland. We handed Gary over to our smart 'shoppers to put him in more heroic, noble or leaderly circumstances, and we've got this week's winners—plus overall finalist apperd—inside!

uscg_pa (14) offered a callback to Sexy Mario (and to this imagining of Shaun of the Dead as a beat 'em up), getting him on the board. flipflops (7) made Gary the Jarl of N64. Inuyasha sent Gary into service with Earth's Mightiest Heroes. TheReno (13) put him on quite the team of super friends.

Surprised that more didn't explore the Monty Python motif; here's AirCairo (1) with but a fleshwound. SnipeyMcSnipe (12) was gratuitously topical, so we'll let him in here. My overall favorite, however, was apperd (2), who made a brilliant association between KITT's eye-beam and Gary's weird LED sword. Plus, come on, giving him a Hasselhoff mullet is good for a laugh too.

Thanks to everyone for entering. New 'Shop subject tomorrow.
