This unofficial “life-size” Lego Mario can be yours, well, $900


Picture: Brick Building

Thanks to the continued cooperation between Nintendo and Lego, Lego Mario is now a real thing—— You can still order one and everything! – But this doesn’t stop others from sharing their own designs, including this behemoth by our favorite plumber with a beard.

Bricker Builds is a group of designers and artists based in Atlanta, Georgia, and is offering custom-designed Mario (and a Power-Up Mushroom) for your consideration. These builds are not endorsed by Nintendo; instead, they are essentially sold as a large bundle of official Lego bricks that happen to be combined into popular characters, with instructions included with purchase.

This unofficial Lego Mario requires nearly 5,000 blocks to build and is described as “life-size”, in which case it is actually “over 2 feet tall”. Bricker Builds stated, “If you buy bricks through us, you will get new official Lego bricks produced by Canada First Bricks, the largest and most trusted third-party brick supplier in North America.”

As our title has leaked, this stuff is not cheap.Mario’s cost is high 899 USD, And Power-Up Mushroom will make you shrink 175 USD; When buying together, you can use the code “PowerUp21” to get a discount of $75.

So, what do you think? Will a two-foot-tall Mario change your living room? Do you have a ridiculously valuable copy of Super Mario 64 that can generate the necessary funds? Let us know in the usual place.
