Nintendo DSi (minis)
About this creation
In conjunction with the giant Nintendo DSi display commissioned by Nintendo of America, I also created and displayed smaller life-size DSi models at the Nintendo World Store in Rockefeller Center throughout April 2009.




It was challenging to recreate the Nintendo DSi at such a small scale using hard-to-find "light blue" colored LEGO elements. There aren't a lot of different shapes available, so I had to use only the most basic bricks and only a few "special pieces" like hinges and arches. I wanted to make sure I got the overall shape and basic features correct and to-scale.




They're life-size!



These miniature models were placed on display for a few weeks at the Nintendo World Store in New York City.

You should cover up the studs on top with some of those flat plates (if they make those in blue).

Can you check out my newest moc Sean? I'd really appreciate it!! P.S. it only took you 12 hours to make these? It would take me, like, 4 days just to think of a good design, let alone build it!

Quoting Joris Blok I'm building one in Joris-style, so prepare!
I can't wait to see it, I'm sure it will blow this away! These were thrown together in about 12 hours with whatever I had around, so I'm a little embarrassed. :)

i don't really want a DSi because they took out the GBA slot, i almost didn't upgrade from my DSfat because the lite's GBA slot is too small, but the hinge broke and i got it anyway.

It's all fun and games until you have to come up with genius given small scale and limited parts selection - makes the job a LOT more difficult! Nicely done, Kenney.

They look good, but definatly not good enough. You could cover the studs on top. You should check out my LEGO PSP and gameboy: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/98782 or http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/98787

And here I had no idea they made light blue 1x1 plates. =) Do you know what scale this life-size DSi is to the large one you made? I don't remember you mentioning that in your post...sure would like to see them together.

Quoting Nicky B . The only reason that the light blue pieces are hard-to-find is because you bought the whole stock of them for your Huge DSi!!!
Touché!

That was the DS that Nintendo gave me. But I gave it to my brother, since I don't really play video games much these days. (Always building LEGO! No time for games!) :)
