Power A constructs the Lego Play and Build Wii Remote

We've seen Wii Remotes of all shapes, sizes and colors, but peripheral manufacturer Power A has managed to break the mold once again by offering a controller made entirely of pure imagination. And also plastic and machinery and stuff -- but mostly pure imagination. The Lego Play and Build Wii Remote allows its handler to affix 31 included bricks to its surface, completely customizing its hull, though we imagine users could also attach thousands of Lego to the controller, turning it into a monstrous, unwieldy Wii Monolith.

The controller, which is now shipping to Toys R' Us at a $39.99 price point, is compatible with Wii MotionPlus, as well as most other first- and third-party accoutrements. It is not, however, compatible with K'Nex, Tinker Toys, Lincoln Logs, Erector Sets or Duplo bricks.
