Check Out This DIY Metroid-in-a-Can
Platinumfungi aka Ryan Fitzpatrick is at it again with his crafting/modding/hacking skills.
A self-described “long-time fan of Metroid”, Fitzpatrick put together a Metroid hatchling, which he’s put into a containment canister made to look worn and battle-damaged, as one would expect from Samus Aran’s profession as a mercenary and bounty hunter who finds herself in all sorts of battle situations.
“Clean and pristine just don’t seem fitting for someone battling monstrous aliens and dodging laser fire 24/7,” he wrote on his blog.
The piece itself is a “mixed-media” production with plastics, clay, metal, paint, and markers. Like some of his other work, Fitzpatrick intends to put together a DIY guide so you can make your very own Metroid-in-a-canister.
You can find his previous work, a modded NES console, here.
