That is one of the coolest things I have seen in a long time. I can't wait to put my FA77 on one. It is KA mount, right?

I love the lion right-hand grip. Is the shutter release in his nose?

I thought it actually looks amazing. Wonder how many people would actually use this for a day to day rather than a just for fun thing though

I think it could be fun but I'd want a lot more blocks. I can see myself making a view camera body of blocks with that thing on the front. A big Medium Format look would be nice too.

It would be extra awesome if those blocks were compatible with LEGO or other blocks. You could then create anything you could dream up.

You could build your own lens hood, or better yet, build the blocks up on all sides to hide the lens and make some sort of lego spy cam.

I'm no expert, but when I searched for "nanoblock" on the internet it appeared that this is a popular lego-like system in Japan, so you can probably buy any kind of block combination to shape your camera in the desired or less desired form 645 shape anyone

(Judging by the finish of the blocks as I see it on the photos, it seems to me that Lego is a bit more qualitative, or maybe I'm just prejudiced)
