Like all Nintendo products, this one pretty much just refuses to die, but if it does, it is usually due to outside sources. If you have a broken one, GREAT! If not, you can pick one up at a local vintage game store, flea market, or even eBay for varying prices.
This was my second prototype, and I am still using it to this day. It is an amazing little guy and everyone loves it. Everyone that owns one enjoys it and claim that it's lead to conversations that end up in good memories. How can you argue with that?
Seriously. How? We all love our childhood video game memories. Probably with an exception of a few games. Especially those terrible ones that you rented on Friday and were stuck with over the weekend. I'll never forgive LJN for that X-Men game!! NEVER! NEVER!!! I...
Ok. Sorry about that. I've employed Wheeljack, the Autobot Engineer to walk you guys through this so I can...um...go do research in the game room.
Step 1: What you'll need!!
The joystick can be picked up off of eBay for a fairly cheap price, just watch out for the shipping. I suggest looking locally first.
The Lampshade and Bottle Lamp Kit can be located at Lowes. You can also, of course find them online.
The Krazyglue that is applied with a brush, is a must. There will be untold messes, I've not seen since the battle of Tyger Pax if not!
