Kodykoala’s Custom Mario Mech Hangar Bay

Mario Mech Hangar Bay

Here is one of my biggest projects to date. This project is about 18 inches wide x 14 inches deep x 16 inches tall. I have been working on this for the last year (off and on), and it was well worth the time it took. The Mario Mech has already been done, but I wanted to show all the work it takes to put one together. Mario has a specialized team of Engineers and Technicians helping to maintain and repair this giant Mech.

I used the Giant Mario cut in half, and studded with straight pins to look like rivets. The base is a mechanical chain base, and the scaffolding is made from LEGO bricks. I used a lot of parts from my spare parts bins, and I used up a whole lot of my Nintendo figures. Most of the hand tools are LEGO minifigure tools. I gave this a “dirty” painting style so that it had a grimy feel.

    This is very well made! I ‘d personally be a bit hesitant to cut one of my Mario figures in half, but to see a Pacific rim style Mario piece of art like this is incredible. Some of the pieces that you say you used look now almost exactly like the real thing they were to be. I’m very impressed by this. Awesome!

      Thanks so much. I use to be hesitant about it too, but after a while you get over it. 🙂 I am glad you like it.
