World's Largest LEGO Mario Up On eBay

You probably already know this because you searched "giant LEGO Mario" on eBay this morning, but for those of you that didn't, the world's largest LEGO Mario statue is for sale on eBay.

Biggest Lego-Mario in the World - (Size over 5 ft 9 / 70.8 in)

Game Mania Started the build of this statue with aid of a professional Lego builder 2 weeks before officially revealing it at the LEGO WORLD fair 22nd October 2009. This statue measures 70.87 inch (5.9 ft / 180 cm), contains more than 40.000 Lego bricks and weights over 110 lb (50 kg).

Profit will be donated to charity: The Ronald McDonald House Charity in The Netherlands.

Mario has been completely glued together so he doesn't arrive like that pre-built LEGO castle I ordered and is currently at €3,250 (~$4,800). Anybody own an arcade? Because I think he'd look great standing outside an arcade (not unlike a cigar store Indian). Haha, like arcades even exist anymore! Wait -- what do you mean your mall has one? ZOMG CAN YOU GET YOUR MOM TO DRIVE US?!

Hit the jump for a couple more shots and a link to the auction.

Thanks to Ashley, Casey, lamanitejoe and Kate, who actually built a larger Luigi LEGO statue but didn't any press because Mario's a dirty attention whore.
