Forget SpongeBob or Darth Vader. The coolest lunchbox we've ever seen is made out of a classic Nintendo Entertainment System.

Redditor Stanstanlol posted this heavily modified console to r/pics Thursday morning, saying it was a project he'd worked on the night before.

He told Mashable he'd found the non-working console for sale for $10. Since it was too badly damaged to ever play games again, Stanstanlol tried to come up with other uses for a busted NES.

"I had a friend years ago who used his Nintendo as a hiding spot from his parents. I didn't need a plastic safe, so my wife and I bounced ideas around," he said. "Turns out the lunchbox HAS been done before, but we thought we stumbled on something unique. I guess almost nothing is unique after the system has been out for about a quarter century."

Stanstanlol's wife is just as crafty; he posted pictures in the thread of a lamp she's created out of an NES Zapper light gun. For his next project, he says he's trying to decide what to do with a Nintendo 64 console with similar hardware damage.

Check out the photos above of this awesome conversion.
