1UP Mushroom from Super Mario Brothers . Something a little different from me, folks. .
This is a 1UP Mushroom from Super Mario Brothers in all of its LEGO glory.
This is the top view.
This is the bottom view.
This is from the left side of the Mushroom. Are you wondering how I made it stand up yet?

Here is how I made the 1UP Mushroom in LEGO Mosaic form stand up on its own. I simply got 2 of those big 8x16 LEGO Base Bricks, coupled them with about 40 2x4 blue LEGO Bricks, and I got 48 1x1 green LEGO Bricks, 33 1x1 white LEGO Bricks, and 95 1x1 yellow LEGO bricks. The amount of bricks adds up to 218 LEGO Bricks, though there is room to add 80 1x1 light blue LEGO bricks to make the total jump to 298 LEGO Bricks. Personally, I like the blue background on the 1UP Mushroom myself, though.
Well, since I had nothing better to do, I figured that I would make a little bonus shot for you. It only took me five minutes but now the 1UP Mushroom has a little variant and it is the Super/Magic Mushroom. I really know how to waste time well now, do I not?
I have been seeing videos in places like YouTube, Blip, and other websites and webpages, not to mention pictures of such, where people have been building LEGO versions of objects from Super Mario Brothers and other video games. Well, as cool as those creations were, they seemed a bit off to me, so instead of just stacking LEGO Bricks on top of each other like a typical LEGO Super Mario Brothers or video game icon creator would do with their creations, I figured that I would do it in LEGO Mosaic mode myself. When I had discussed this with other people, they said that the reason that they did it the way that they did it was because a typical LEGO Mosaic form of the object would always fall over and then a stroke of genius was born. The reason that they had said that was most likely because typical LEGO Mosaic pieces were built on a LEGO Baseplate rather than on LEGO Base Bricks like my MOC. As you can clearly see, it is completely free standing, much like the other kinds of LEGO video game art that does not rely on a LEGO Mosaic format. Please let me know what you think about my creations, okay? Thank you.
