Artist Ty Lettau combines two (well, four) of my favourite things in these pieces: classic Nintendo characters and plastic model kits.

They're pretty unique as far as the crowded "pixellated tribute art" dealio goes, but damned if they don't now make me actually want some kind of "create-a-Nintendo-game" kit from Revell to show up.
