Biggest Lego-Mario in the World - (Size over 5 ft 9 / 70.8 in)
Game Mania Started the build of this statue with aid of a professional Lego builder 2 weeks before officially revealing it at the LEGO WORLD fair 22nd October 2009. This statue measures 70.87 inch (5.9 ft / 180 cm), contains more than 40.000 Lego bricks and weights over 110 lb (50 kg).
Profit will be donated to charity: The Ronald McDonald House Charity in The Netherlands.
Mario has been completely glued together so he doesn't arrive like that pre-built LEGO castle I ordered and is currently at â‚¬3,250 (~$4,800). Anybody own an arcade? Because I think he'd look great standing outside an arcade (not unlike a cigar store Indian). Haha, like arcades even exist anymore! Wait -- what do you mean your mall has one? ZOMG CAN YOU GET YOUR MOM TO DRIVE US?!
Hit the jump for a couple more shots and a link to the auction.
Thanks to Ashley, Casey, lamanitejoe and Kate, who actually built a larger Luigi LEGO statue but didn't any press because Mario's a dirty attention whore.
