People have been lobbing green shells at one another for three decades, and the glorious carnage that is Mario Kart is just as appealing now as ever!
Mario Kart 8 was released in 2014, enabling Mario and his assortment of fellow racers to hover in ‘anti-gravity’ mode for the first time. And you could still lob green shells.
Cue Stephan Froden, who has recreated everyone’s favourite Italian plumber and his anti-gravity go-kart from nearly 23,000 LEGO bricks.
There are LED lights inside as well as motorised movements, and there’s more to see of Stephan’s wonderful homage to Mario Kart 8 at Ryan McNaught’s ‘Brickvention 2022’ album on Flickr, of which Stephan’s model and many other equally stupendous creations are part.

Yaarr! What better t’celebrate the return of pirates than with a 48,000 brick pirate ship!*
Certified LEGO Professional Ryan McNaught aka TheBrickMan has welcomed the LEGO Pirates line back into stores in 2015 in a huge way. At 2 meters long and taking 120 hours to build, Ryan’s ‘Brickman’s Bounty’ is the pride of the Brickvention 2015 Lego Show.
