Contra in LEGOs is formula for greatness

When two beloved things like Contra
and the DS collide
, it's hard not
to feel giddy all over. As the release date
for Contra 4
gets closer and closer, we thought there was no way that our lust for this game could grow even stronger.
Well, as it turns out, we were dead wrong.
Upon viewing an image of this NES classic in LEGO form, we were forced to schedule endless sobbing into our daily routines until Contra 4
is released. Since we'll be able to play the original game
on our Contra 4
carts, we wonder if we'll be thinking of LEGOs now as we take advantage of that glorious feature.
As an added bonus, skinny coder's flickr gallery has pictures of other NES classics that he made in LEGO form, including Duck Hunt
, Metal Gear
, and Bionic Commando.
We absolutely recommend checking them out. Which "LEGOed" classic is your favorite?

I wonder how long it's going to be before that website (which is cool, anyway) stops showing up on every blog in the universe?

You mean, Flickr? Probably going to be a while. Should we stop linking to eBay as well?
