This is a bed that I made for my son, based on Optimus Prime. I decided not to do an Instructable, since it's built off of an existing dresser and would be difficult to duplicate exactly.
How much was this product in total?
oohhh i miss my dad.... he's away....
You love your kid a lot more than my dad loved me. Wow.
Awwwww...that makes my heart hurt...somebody needs a hug...
thats pretty tame
Very cool!<br/>Your son is a lucky boy, I have been trying to convince my Dad to get me a loft bed for a while but he's adamant about keeping my old one.<br/><br/><sup>P.S.-How bad is the creaking when you shake the bed?</sup><br/>
Oh, it doesn't creak. This is the second time I've made him a bed. The last one was a Thomas The Tank Engine bed, and he destroyed it pretty quickly. So this one is plenty beefy.
I asked because "It'll be creaky" is one of the common dismissive reasons my Dad says.
Optimus Prime bed AND a retro gaming system !!! Possibly the BEST combination ever ! Your son looks very happy too !
jeez that kid is happier than a fat kid with cake! I would be too. Although the crawl space underneath is pretty private, and the TV in it has a VCR. I would suggest knocking well before entering his room when he gets to be about 12 years old. hahah
Wow, what a great job! You must have blown your son's mind with this.<br/><br/>I noticed the plug+play game joystick, I have the exact same one! A throwback to my youth I suppose. <br/><br/>I recall many wasted hours playing on that silly thing, and while your son may have a more awesome bed than <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.instructables.com/id/Elevated-Bed/">me</a>, he's going to need to work those tiny fingers to be a pro at a few of those old arcade classics.<br/><br/>I'm calling your son out, I'm throwing down, I challenge him to a high score battle of <a rel="nofollow" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bosconian">Bosconian</a>. <br/><br/>Tell your son to look me up when he's a master, I expect an epic showdown like in <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0098663/">The Wizard</a>.<br/>
That elevated bed of yours is actually quite similar to this, I just attached some plywood and painted it to give it a facade.
ahahahah. freaken awesome!
