What pops into your head when you read the words Mario Kart? Good, clean nostalgic fun? Trying to force feed your Wiimote into the console's disc drive after 3-4 blue shells in a row after you've BEEN WINNING THE ENTIRE RACE? Or how Mario and his fellow fans of novelty driving would look great in LEGO?!
If the last option was your thought of choice, then you are in luck. Three plucky Flickr users decided to take it upon themselves to recreate the usual lineup of Mario Karters using the world famous plastic blocks of joy. Even Luigi's death stare managed to force its way in!
Here We Go!
He's looking fairly intense with his jaw pushed menacingly forward.
With his chilling death stare realized in LEGO, I'd be fine with any shell he thre my way.
More like Yoshisaurus Swole! Our favorite dino is looking pretty badass on that motorcycle.
Seriously awesome. These weapons look great, especially Bullet Bill. Great job, dude!
Looking positively regal, m'lady.
He seems fairly zen on that tractor... I think that means trouble is speeding our way.
I think this is the cutest thing I've seen today, actually.
Mario, Wario, Bowser, Lakitu and Goombas
What a great line up! Can I be honest a minute and say I really want the Bowser and Blue Shell on my mantlepiece?
All in all, a really, really cool fan piece here. Makes me think my time spent ogling LEGO's version of Batman's Tumbler all the more valid...
And Christmas is coming...
