iam8bit Entertainment System Level 1 Uncle Scrooge McDuck's Money Bin

Blow away the dust from your cartridge or breath it in, it's time for Things To Do In LA's look at iam8bit Entertainment System
Ongoing until the end of June
iam8bit Gallery, 2147 W. Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90026
Opening night on Friday, June 7, 7 - 11p.m (Exhibit to run through June 30)
Level 1 in our coverage of the amazing video game tribute art show has me talking with Jon M. Gibson and Amanda White of Iam8bit in the money bin.

Do they have a replica of Uncle Scrooge's Mone Bin that you can lay in with your friends? Why they certainly do! With soft pillow coins, a few gems, stinky foam cheese and a top hat to wear you might want to sleep in it during E3 or think your trapped in some sort of a odd cartoon nightmare. Capcom and iam8bit should look into making into some sort of a ride at Disneyland or at least sell it to some furry who wants to get it on like Scrooge McDuck. It might be best if the let people covering E3 stay in at night and use the gallery as some sort of hotel room.

It's a duck blur of what was going on and we've only just started all the photos and interviews from the night. In ways it was magical to go back down some old roads and see some old friends brought back to life in the form of art.

Here's a few more looks that you can easily jump into if you head to the gallery yourself.

The Uncle Scrooge Money Bin comes from iam8bit being the masters of the advertising campaign behind the DuckTales Remastered video game coming out later this Summer from Capcom and WayForward.

Update: Here's some from the professional photographer with some female cosplay of Uncle Scrooge.
