Mario Is Mech-ing

Toy customiser Donald “kodykoala” Kennedy cut a giant Mario figure in half and used push pin ‘rivets’ to transform him into a massive metal monster. Mario’s sacrifice was not in vain.

The folks at my local retailer were trying to get rid of one of these massive plastic plumbers for a year. Every time I went in they’d suggest I buy it. Now I’m kinda bummed I didn’t, though honestly I lack the time and skill to pull something like this off.

Princess Peach wishes her pilot paramore luck as he heads off to battle the mighty Bowser Bot.

Meanwhile, off in a corner somewhere . . .

That’s just cold, Donald.

Check out the flickr gallery for a better look at all the work that went into making a $35 plastic Mario toy into something spectacular.
