What could I put a NES in?

I picked up an old cosmetically knackered NES yesterday at a boot sale. It works perfectly but is dented cracked and missing the front flap.

I have seen various mods on the net about rehousing the Nes in the casing of another object. Call me strange if you like, but this kind of thing really appeals to me!

Now some guy has put a NES in a toaster, another guy used a nes clone to put a NES in a Nes Cartridge. So my question is, What should I put my NES in? I want to be original rather than copy what has already been done.

Now because I'm using a real NES I obviously wont be able to get it to fit in something too small. Component that are large such as some of the bigger Caps I can move or relocate but the size of the board will limit how small I can go.

The best suggestion gets made!!! (or at least attempted)

Thanks

In Master System case? It have better graphics but somewhat worse sound so it's not so good idea.

Think about the possibilities! You can show people how you run Super Mario Bros. 3 on your Master System! Amazing stuff

I knew I'd get at least one bin!!!

But wasnt expecting a breadbin!

I like the 8 Track idea. Not sure about putting one console in another. I think I'll let it run a while longer before we have a vote or I decide. Depends how daft the suggestions get a i suppose

Years ago in college i built a nice case for a master system 2 console using blue perspex.... the same could easily be done with a NES and other consoles

Pretty sure it is a microATX PC case made from Lego in the shape of a NES.
