Logan Paul has once again upset the internet with his latest antics. A long-time Pokémon fan, Paul has often taken to social media to share his love for the trading card game whether it is through box break reveals or showing off his $1 million USD gem mint 10-graded Pokémon Charizard.

Now, the older of the Paul brothers finds himself in hot water from Pokémon fans after posting a video to his Twitter that showed him completing his “first epoxy resin project.” The DIY project sees the YouTuber douse 15 Game Boy Colors in resin just to make a tabletop. Being that these devices are now considered collectible gaming consoles, his video sparked outrage from the vintage collector community. Amongst those who criticized Paul was Bob Wulff, a fellow YouTuber. Many others were quick to point out that Paul has deliberately ruined historical pieces and that some were considered to be limited editions.

While it is likely that Paul spent thousands procuring some of these Game Boys, the community does not appear to be outraged by the cost but rather how he has chosen to use them as opposed to preserving them for value. Take a look at his DIY project and some reactions he has garnered below.
