Looks like a dentist's worst nightmare though--those gums and teeth don't look at all healthy. . .

No it hardly worked at all, the second photo shows the reflection off scanner is almost to much to see the screen even when using white text on black screen.

Now, if I could just figure out what @pixelpedant is toting???

 

I always thought he was carrying his own head to indicate being a Smart Ass Gamer (or maybe even a Happy Ass Gamer, as the face looks like it is smiling), but then again, I could definitely be wrong. . .and it is definitely an excellent avatar in any event.  :)  :)  :)

re-made as a controller for Kerbal Space Program. Not sure if I want to declare this guy the Devil or say 'cool'. :) 

I don't normally approve of destroying retro computers, but this poor ti has been through hell.

It needs put out of its misery.

I like to put a smiley face on my bazooka to let people how happy I am to explode them see them.  :)

 

But seriously, It's the character sprite from the Sega Master System and Game Gear versions of Space Harrier.  Which otherwise graphically differ in a lot of respects, but with the SMS version as the starting point for the GG version, which I consider a lot more playable.

 

I'm a big Space Harrier fan, and love it for being one of those games/franchises that was ported to practically everything in the late 80s, regardless of the apparent impossibility.  Including versions/variations for Spectrum, Amstrad CPC, PC-88, MSX, and Sharp X1.  And there's a modern version for Atari 8-bit. 

 

Still hoping for a TI-99 version some day.  But it would be a hell of a project.  So many distinct enemy types, with their own pathing and scaling.  It'd be a heck of a project.  Not just one of those games where it's all about sorting out the gimmick behind the main loop.

I'm not sure I'd deface what looked like a pretty shiny 994A to play Kerbal with.  The console reminds me of the Simpsons episode where Bart glues all the stuff to his face:

At any rate, that poor TI.
