World's largest Lego Mario up for auction

Quick, as of this posting you only have 7 dagen and 21 uren to win yourself the largest Lego Mario in the world. In case you're wondering why I'm speaking in Netherlandese (yes, I am well aware that isn't a real language) it's because the auction for this massive Mario statue is taking place on the Netherland's eBay. As of this writing there are only two bids for 2.550,00 euros, but I'm guessing it will go much higher as this is a pretty unique item and all the proceeds are going to the Ronald McDonald House Charities. 

Sadly, if aren't an altruistic millionaire or live pretty much on the same street as the Lego Mario's creator, Dirk VH, then buying this item might get a little expensive. The thing weighs 110 pounds so I'm guessing shipping costs would be between 1 bajillion and 1 kajillion dollars (yes, I am well aware that those aren't actual numbers). I suppose he could ship it in pieces, but do you really want to put back together 40,000 Lego blocks? I didn't think so. Check out the complete building process for the massive Mario at Dirk's link above. He's also made Luigi and Master Chief to name a few.

More beautiful game-inspired woodblock prints you can buy

We've shown off Jed Henry's Japanese woodblock renditions of game characters before. I'm still in love with that original Samus one. But Henry's catalog is growing, to my wallet's growing concern. Shadow of the Colossus, Fina...more
