This was the first time a video game spoke to me... literally. It was a unique experience to us older gamers to actually hear the words, even if it was only the first two lines of text from the game.
I cannot take complete credit for the metroid. Another builder originally used the small green dome for the Metroid, but his did design was too wide to fit in the "test tube". To see the original small metroid, check out BryTri4ce W's creations.
My take on Samus, without using glue, stickers, or otherwise to modify the minifigure. Sure, it's not perfect, but hey, all the pieces are reusable.
The handshake drags on and becomes awkward as both parties try to end it, but neither can.
Ah, the artsy, over the shoulder, languished look back. Farewell last metroid, until we meet again...
