A friend of mine has been working on this project for a while, and I thought GAF would appreciate the final result:




Each plate (there are 16 plates total) took 3 hours to assemble from a blown up picture of the select screen. Nothing but off-the-shelf Legos were used - no repaints, no cheats. In total there are 37,248 1x1 bricks in a 5ft x 5ft square.

Enjoy.

This is fucking art, and I would be proud to display it within my domicile.

Edit: He really should consider selling "kits" to build that.

I thought the blocks would be inter-locked with one another, standing up...

Either way, still cool. The best part about it is that you can put it on the floor (or even leave it on the wall) and build awesome LEGO stuff on top.

Is there a special tool used to remove the blocks in the middle of the mural? I just know that 1x1 blocks are tough to remove when they're completely surrounded

Quick Ebay price check gives these 1x1 blocks price of roughly around 4cents..

0,04 x 37000 = 1470$ + work and planning

Not a bad price considering the end result. I would build something similar if I could get my hands on some super cheap legos.
