Whether it's platform or side-scrolling shooter games, we've all pulled secret all-nighters glued to the TV playing video games. And don't even get started on cartoons – that's basically how we acquired the essential life-skill of eating cereal without looking down at our bowls. 

Knowing how much these forms of entertainment meant for kids (and even adults) since the 80s and 90s, to turn "Play Yourself" by Christian Brennan into a kickass designer art toy was a no-brainer. Perhaps it could become friends with Maneki-Dino by Juce Gace.

This work began as a sketch in 2015, marrying retro video-games and nostalgic characters. The illustration was made the classic mascot for IamRetro, under the brand Counter Balance, and we are proud to be able to turn this killer illustration into a polystone art collectible!

This idea subsequently evolved into a series of different characters with various controller heads, in different situations. Psst...even really naughty ones. Check out some of these awesome illustrations!
