Take 40,000 LEGO bricks, and a bit of time stacking, gluing, and shaping, and you’ve got LEGO Mario.  The LEGO creation was unveiled at the LEGO World Fair in October, and sold for $5,000 on eBay.  The money didn’t go to the Danish company, but rather the Ronald McDonald House Charity in The Netherlands.

For the record, though Mario is close to six feet tall, he only weighs 110 pounds. The LEGO statues usually go for big money, but I hear if you know the right person at your local Toys R Us, you might catch a break.
