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.

ZOMG CAN YOU GET YOUR MOM TO DRIVE US?!
Hit the jump for a couple more shots and a link to the auction.
