R-Type Boss Molded in Plastic

Posted by Corbie Dillard

Someone had a lot of spare time on their hands.

Ever wondered what that enormous third stage boss in R-Type looked like as a whole? Tired of trying to picture it in your mind through screen after screen of scrolling? Well wonder no more.

It seems someone decided to put together a garage kit of the ship and judging from the picture of the model, it's pretty impressive. It's obvious that someone put a lot of time into the detail shown in this model and they even managed to include the R9 ship to better convey the scale of the model. How's that for style and accuracy?

This week an R-Type boss constructed out of plastic - next week Bowser's Castle made of toothpicks and gummy bears.

Leave it to Corbie to find something shmup-related and awesome like this.

And if that bowser's castle thing is true, I want NL to be the FIRST to show us it.

That's why I couldn't get the guy's name because the link was down. The first time it said that the bandwidth limit for the site had been reached and the next time I got some other weird error.

That is what I call dedication. It can only be this person's idea of what the rest looks like though. It's still impressive.

Wow, that's strange. I just popped R-Type Leo in my cabinet tonight for a bit. First time I've played it in ages.
