This Fan's Incredible Amiibo Display Case Is Probably Better Than Yours

Amiibo may look like Smash Bros. trophies, but they don’t act like them—not normally, anyway. One fan has spent two years trying to make that fantasy into more of a reality, and the results are awesome.

Nothing at all beats the feeling of building something, setting it up and just looking at it...well provided it doesn’t fall apart, explode or fall over.

I rebuilt the bird feeder/restraining post for my sister’s super aggressive dog this weekend when I had to run out and buy him a new chain because he broke the old one (And it was a tow-chain at that!). It maybe took me a half hour or so, but every day following, I just look at it and go “Motherfucker, I built this.”to myself and feel overly proud. I don’t know why I feel so damned proud, it’s not like I reroofed the house by myself or jackhammered a floor to pieces and installed new drain lines by myself but man that feeling.
