    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.

    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.
