As anyone who happens to be as hopelessly addicted to collecting amiibo figures as us will know, trying to find the space to keep your lovely collection on show is an absolute nightmare. This particular amiibo figure absolutely takes the biscuit, though, and we're pretty sure it's the biggest one we've ever seen.
The amazing figure belongs to Cody, co-host of Twitch channel DSKoopa. Talking to Kotaku, Cody reveals that the enormous Mario model was actually made by his mum, consisting of 6,000 individual bricks. Wow. Seemingly wanting to make the gift even more special, Cody decided to add an amiibo chip into a base for the model so that it would function as an ordinary Mario figure. You can see it working in the clip below.
Of course, carrying around a giant Mario who just so happens to be made entirely out of a material which can be pulled apart can have its setbacks. This second clip was uploaded to the Twitch channel on the very same day as the happy moment above. (Watch Mario's hand).
Regardless, this thing is incredible and we find ourselves desperately wanting one or five for the Nintendo Life office. If you're reading this, Cody's mum, we'll trade you one giant Snorlax!
Those biceps tho 💪
YO! This is so flipping cool! I wish I could have something like that!
Mamma Mia! That's awesome!
I have a picture of an almost lifesize one. How can I share it here?

Some people squander their money on drugs. I squander mine on amiibo.
Isn't Pink Gorrilla in Seattle?
I have Money. how much?
@zever yep, as the board next to Mario says, "Welcome to Pink Gorilla Games Seattle, WA"
Hold on I have to run home to scan my Mario amiibo!
@Mach_Rider didn’t notice the pink gorilla sign before until you pointed out it’s her fiance.
Don't know about you but one can get a hernia just trying ti scan it.
@Silly_G don't forget without the game it's no fun.
That's actually really awesome.
To make something work as an Amiibo, all you have to do is buy and Amiibo, remove the figure, and attach the bottom to something you want to work as an Amiibo. I could turn a stapler into an Amiibo if I wanted...
The Lego Mario is pretty cool. I imagine it was quite expensive, to order the needed bricks. I used to be pretty into Lego, but ordering specific bricks in specific colors could add up very fast.
Oh man I miss Pink Gorilla. I sold them a million billion games (not literally) and consoles before I moved away to Japan forever, and I hope at least a few of them ended up in good homes. Especially the ones that I kind of regret selling.
Co-host? Nah it’s just my twitch channel.
Thanks for posting. I keep share these with my mom and she’s really happy to see everyone thinks it’s cool.
