I want keep it tasteful and something one could have out and not seem like it's a freebie from e3
tell em to make a couple of these;p
Marble for the GB, Bronze for the statue
It would be a much smaller bust, in line with the width of the gameboy. Brass or bronze is stupidly expensive.
Lol damn man, make him smiling. It looks like a death mask hah
Maybe it would be more practical to fit his bust on a GB gamepak so it can sit in any ordinary GB - maybe even containing a ROM with some words etc.
We still need a picture from herman.
Alright, i'll get on it today. Whom should I send the file over to ?
I second that. It be nice to have some of these statues made exclusively to the
contributors. Kinda like those gold & platinum records awards an artist / producers receives. We could all pitch-in some money to have this done. Just a thought.
it doesn't need to be museum-sized, unless it's going to the Smithsonian. Oscar-sized or smaller is possible, no?
Oscar size sounds good coming from us. But eventually Gumpei Yokoi deserves a spot at the Smithsonian on a grand scale. Without Gumpei and Miyamoto, its no tellin wether there would be a gaming industry today or not.
So, any news on this?
No picture yet.
Whom should I send the picture and signature over to ?
agreed to the letter
Anyone read his fascinating autobiography that was published in Japan?
no, I don't have the jap.lang drivers in my brain, someone care to install or interpret, recompile the book in proper in english?
No, but i'm actually waiting for the French and English translation of the Takefumi Makino book coming soon by these guys:
Any news on the picture?
The scan of the pic is ready to go. I just need to know whom to send
it over to.
Send it to Assembler.
Any updates on this?
I gave him the wrong email to send the pic lol. I replied with a pm containing the correct email address.
