3D Samus Made From Video Game Cartridges

Published by: JJ Hendricks on October 21, 2011

I’ve got a fun question for you: What do video game stores do with the Madden, Shaq Fu and NFL Quarterback Club cartridges that nobody wants anymore? The answer might surprise you.

In our case at least, employees decided to use the cartridges to make this awesome video game art. Built from 179 worthless or otherwise broken NES, SNES, Nintendo 64, Gameboy, and Gameboy Advance cartridges JJGames made a 5.5 Ft x 4 Ft 3D status of Samus from the Metroid games.

Samus is one of our favorite video game characters, in part because she’s super underrated and often overshadowed by Mario, Sonic and other beloved characters. So when we had the idea of creating a 3D collage, it was obvious who we’d have to take as our inspiration.

As you can see from the photos below, the cartridges are colored and glued together on a piece of black plywood. The final 3D statue of Samus is almost exactly five feet tall.

The artwork was created by Blaze Bratcher, a local artist from Denver Colorado, and you can find out more about it by checking out the photos below.
