Nintendo and iam8bit, a gaming art event and production company, have come together to get super geeky and build a replica of the Poltergust 5000. The Poltergust 5000 is the ghost devouring vacuum cleaner that earns a supporting role in Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon.
The video at the head of this post was tossed our way by Nintendo. It doesn’t show the final form of the ghost busting replica, but it does show off some of the creative process. Hopefully the next video will announce that their sending several replicas off to lucky fans.
If you haven’t checked it out yet, now’s as good a time as any to read our review of Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon. We absolutely loved the sequel to the GameCube launch title, and I consider it a must-buy for Nintendo 3DS owners. It’s a gem, pure and simple.
What do you folks think of Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon? How much would you pay for a nerdy replica of the Poltergust 5000?
