Mario in Motion: Meet the massive moving Lego build that’s Mario for real

The Mario-themed project uses various Lego pieces and motors to bring to life an accurate vision of the games

Ever wondered what a Mario level might look like IRL?

As featured on Lego extremist YouTube Beyond The Brick, the piece is the creation of Brandon Jones who started the project in September after the release of the digital Mario sets. Lego constructors have long been creating impressive builds of popular media over the years and Jones’s Mario in Motion is certainly eye-catching.

The build itself is made up of over 12,000 pieces and uses 14 motors to make various areas of the build move around to create a physical likeness of the legendary original Mario titles. Jones spared no detail with multiple enemy types featured, who all function on the level as fans would expect. There are even item pickups and chrome gold dishes used to represent the games much sought-after coins.

The above video showcases the build in all of its glory and even gives a literal behind-the-scenes peek at how Mario in Motion is constructed… It looks like a ton of work!

Jones commented on his vision saying “This is what I had envisioned from the very beginning. It matches very closely with my original design and intent, so I don’t plan to build on it anymore. I’ll show it at a few Cons and then possibly part it out. We’ll see where all the pieces need to go.” As of right now, it would seem that Jones has no future plans for other Mario projects.
