Ooh ... This. Is. Awesome. No, it's SUPER AWESOME: Dan Kressin made a Donkey Kong diorama, complete with Kong throwing barrels and Mario jumping over them out of LEGO MINDSTORMS:
During a random discussion at the April NELUG meeting, Robyn (my wife and muse) off-handedly said, "You should make Donkey Kong!" As is her way, she followed this remark with a brief musical rendition, firmly planting the idea in my skull.
Donkey Kong is a classic, so I wanted my MOC to do it justice. At a minimum it would need to have:
* rolling barrels (using LEGO barrels if possible)
* Donkey Kong throwing the barrels
* a barrel-jumping minifig
* ladders and ramps that closely resembled the originals
