Fan Builds Atari 2600's E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Out Of Legos

Most of the video game-inspired Lego sets highlighted on Game Informer's website consist of thousands of pieces. This isn't the case with famed brick builder Gilcelio's Lego E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. This set consists of just 39 pieces, yet captures every little detail from the game, including the bulge between E.T.'s legs. I played this game for hours, and never noticed it was there. Young Reiner clearly didn't see the world in the way old Reiner does now.

Gilcelio's photo gallery is loaded with great pieces, including a few others based on classic games (like the Atari 2600 collection below). Check them out and leave him a comment!
