Mega Man, Meet the Mega Boy

Okay, everyone, you can relax: Capcom isn't saddling us with a new, younger version of Mega Man that feels cribbed from Jim Henson's Muppet Babies (he's already 10, and they already gave us Powered Up, if the idea needed to be driven home). Rather, one fan has taken one of the greatest video game systems of all time, and tricked it out with a Mega Makeover. As you can see in the image to your right (click to enlarge), the classic brick model Game Boy has apparently volunteered to be converted by one Hyaki Ikari into a fighting machine, so that it can stop other portable gaming machines of the late 80's and early 90's from spreading boredom and draining batteries the world over. It has been equipped with a blue D-pad and blue A and B buttons, a custom-printed screen, a Pro Sound 1/8” TRS stereo jack, and perhaps most interesting of all, a blue backlight. No more "creamed spinach color!"

Okay, so granted, having the classic 8-bit Mega Man doing his best Dan Forden impression in the lower-left corner may do little to benefit your gaming prowess, but Tiny Cartridge suggests that this unit is likely meant more for "dudes who plan to tinker with LSDJ or other Game Boy music stuff," given the chiptune-specific modifications.

Nonetheless, if this is a piece you would like to own, then you can find it at auction on eBay here, with about three days left (as of this writing) to buy at a price of $184.23, or your best offer.
