Pentax have today revealed their Optio NB1000 camera, which packs in a Lego-style customisable faceplate.

A tie-in with toy makers Diablock, you can attach small little building blocks called Nanoblocks onto the camera’s front side to give it your own unique touch. Sadly, it’s looking like a Japanese exclusive at the moment, so you might have to buy some Lego blocks and a glue-stick if you’re hoping to get similarly creative with your own compact in the UK.

Don’t worry though if you’re just interested in the camera for its specs, as it seems more or less the same as the UK-bound RS1000 model. Both the RS1000 and NB1000 have 14-megapixel sensors, a 4x optical zoom and HD video recording capabilities.

It’s even got its own gimmick, with a transparent, removable front plate behind which you can slide your own custom skins.

The RS1000 will set UK readers back £119.99, whilst the NB1000 will cost 20,000 Yen. Roll down for some more pictures.
