Sometimes fan-made creations can simply blow you away, and this 1/2 scale Donkey Kong-inspired arcade cabinet made from LEGO is certainly one of those times.

The creator of the cabinet, Helen Sham, has explained that over 15,000 LEGO bricks were required to build the entire piece. Standing at more than five feet tall, the cabinet weighs over 65 pounds (nearly 30kg).

The design of the cabinet only took Helen around six hours, but over 27 hours were needed for the build itself. With a giant Donkey Kong figure on the top, brick-built graphics on the sides, and a mock coin tray for arcade tokens, the cabinet features real arcade internals to run actual games on the screen. You can check out the whole masterpiece in action in this video below.
