As former Nintendo Power greats, Jason and Jenni took the news that Nintendo Power would soon be shipping its last issue like a Deku Nut to the head.
We’ve been seeing tributes around the internet, and decided to throw our two gold coins in. Then we thought, hey, we know a lot of the former…
Life-Size Pixel Ridley by Dan / ChozoBoy
Who needs an extra dimension? ChozoBoy brought his pixelated Samus Aran costume to Otakon 2012, along with a life-size (we imagine Ridley is really that size… I’m not sure how you measure cybernetic alien pterodactyl dragons) pixel Ridley. Guard your baby Metroid!
THE BEST PICTURE IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD EVER
This was really cool since Samus actually just happened to stroll in the area when it was done being put up
This amazing giant two-person Ridley “costume” (more like a puppet) was probably designed by the same guy who did last year’s Chozo.
I wish I’d been recording on video when its leg dropped off and the crowd started screaming “HEY, IT’S JUST A STICK!”
“THAT ISN’T RIDLEY AT ALL!!”
They did fix it easily enough, though.
