Hmmm. Interesting placement of the joystick.

I'm concerned that this might be the coolest thing ever, rendering all future human endeavor ultimately futile.

Coin mechanism doesn't even work so he can't even make beer money. At least cut a slot for it, or something.

That's pretty good, but I still like this Transformer costume.

I can't make myself count this as a "costume", he's just wearing an arcade game, not assimilating himself into it. I might as well carry around a dorm fridge full of Sam Adams and Toblerones and go as a mini bar.

Damn the Transformer one is wonderful. Wonder if it makes that same "transform" sound. "eehu-oo-arr-arrr."

THING COSTUME MADE OUT OF REAL ROCKS.

Yeah, that's what I thought. He's not so much wearing a costume as he is wearing the actual object.

Yes! The Ferrari beats the Toyota Celica. And it has a naked lady on the hood. And they've got the soundtrack.

I wish I could build stuff.

Celica? That's quite obviously a 300ZX. Jeez...

Well, as he says later on:

Sweet. That beats my 2000 skill-crane costume.
