The Fireflower - Mighty LEGO Super Mario 3 airship by VonBrunk The Fireflower - Mighty LEGO Super Mario 3 airship by VonBrunk
Here it is at last, the finalized version of the massive Super Mario 3 airship project that I’ve been gradually working on since November 2011! Initially planned to be much smaller and streamlined, this titanic brute ballooned up to a larger scale, and used over 8,000 LEGO pieces in its completed form — as well as electronic components, such as lights and audio (although the music player wasn't functional at the time of the photo session). The bulk of the ship is built entirely from reddish-brown pieces that resemble wooden planks, to create the effect of a rickety, wood ship made from logs, such as in its respective video game. Rather than have this ship docked on the ground, I used the magic of transparent-clear LEGO pieces for stanchions and columns, to keep it suspended several inches off the ground (as well as its small fleet of miniships flying)!

You should see the giant NES controller I built: I purchased six whole boxes of light grey bricks!

Simply go to the official LEGO Stores and request a case of a specified type/color. I think it's around $70 a box, and it all depends on the amount available. For example, when I built my NES controller, I had two of the boxes sent from a store in Long Island, and the others from stores in New Jersey. I called them up first and asked which colors they have in stock, and made a credit card payment over the phone. Each box contains around 800-1,000 pieces, depending on size and type.
