And the people bowed and prayed to the [fiber optic] god they made…

A friend and fellow retro video game collector received this fantastic fiber optic Nintendo Game Boy sign for Christmas.  Lucky guy!  His dad (yes, his dad keeps an eye out for things for his collection…lucky guy) saw it come up for sale at an area auction and snatched it up for him.  It’s complete in original box including foam inserts and the original customer feedback card.  The sign is so incredibly beautiful that I had to record and share it.  It’s given me a deep appreciation for well done promo items.  For more photos, check out the gallery below the video.  Happy retro gaming & collecting!
