It'sa me, Mario!

The second in my series of Mario Kart character MOCs is Mario.

He's not to scale with Bowser; but, when building stuff like this, your goal first is to always make each model look accurate unto itself -- you use whatever parts you have to recreate the character's features most accurately. And, occasionally, the right parts for one model might be larger than those for another. Thus, scale issues.

But, since my overall goal is to stick them all in karts, maybe the scale differences won't as apparent once they're sitting down. We'll see. :-)

Awesome Sausageness (with cheese no less)

A chap that works for Last.fm marked my LEGO Bowser as a favorite on Flickr today. :-D

I love Last.fm. I have an account there, I'm a subscriber, and I use it all the time. You should, too!

More!

My niece is sleeping over two nights in a row this week; so, that means three days of fun with her uncle Mikey! :-D She's only 20-months-old, but she's the coolest. Like me, she loves Spider-Man, vampires, Star Wars and LEGO. Yup, we make a pretty awesome team.

So, like usual when she comes over, we spent most of our time playing with LEGO today. Typiccally, we build stuff like castles and mansions. I even built her a battleship the other day -- it was huge, she loved it. But, today, we worked together (after having watched Return of the Jedi) to make this...

The Judgment Pit!



Now, watch my niece and I, executing swift judgment on the accused ( 5.4 MB / 30 seconds / .wmv ):



Yeah, I'm a great uncle. ;-)

Spiked!

I made this one a week ago, but I figure better late than never when it comes to posting. It's Bowser, the King of the Koopas, from Super Mario Bros. and Mario Kart fame:



He's just the first in a series of Mario Kart LEGO creations I'm gonna do. The goal: a race track diorama featuring several characters and their karts.
