Pengo LEGO Mosaic

May 14th, 2008

After building the Dig Dug LEGO Mosaic a few days ago, I visited a couple retro-gaming websites and reminisced about the coin-op video games I played as a kid.  In doing so, I stumbled on another childhood favorite of mine, Pengo!  In general, this game was a less popular, but still one I loved.  I realized it would make a fun little mosaic, so I built one.

I’ll probably build a few more of these before I get bored with retro-game mosaics.  There are at least another 5 games from this early 80′s era that always seemed to get my quarters, and they all have the same blocky 8-bit graphics that are so easily adaptable to brick mosaic form.

    Do you sell these? Or do you just make them for fun?

    The Pengo and Dig Dug mosaics are both 10 inches square. I am planning to setup a store on BrickLink to sell custom LEGO creations soon.

    Until then, if you are interested in buying something feel free to email me dave@brickplayer.com
