Levi "Doctor Octoroc" Buffum, whose nickname you should recognize from the 8-Bit Jesus chiptune album and the recent 8-Bit Keyboard Cat collaboration with his brother Jude, has created dozens of 3D bead sprites based on video games and consoles, the latest of which -- a Gunner Bot from the Metal Slug series crafted with nearly 4,300 beads -- you can see above.

He's created similar 3D sprites for Gradius' Vic Viper, a couple F-Zero hovercars, Blaster Master's SOPHIA, and more. You can see two of Doctor Octoroc's pieces below, and many more in his 3D bead sprites' Flickr set.
