Taking apart the LEGO Super Mario figure

Don’t want to destroy your LEGO Super Mario figure, but want to know what’s inside him? Beyond the Bricks are dismantling the lovable character for you.

Beyond the Brick’s Boone Langston – also the LEGO MASTERS USA semi-finalist – has been itching to do the unthinkable and take apart a LEGO Super Mario figure to see what’s inside the interactive character. Few fans will want to destroy their newly acquired figure, that comes in 71360 Adventures with Mario Starter Course (review), so perhaps this video should be considered a public service.

Boone takes apart the casing, separating the parts of the body and the hair, splitting the front and back into two. The dismantling reveals circuit boards, the colour sensor and one huge screen that sits below the front casing. There is an opportunity to see Mario turned on with no casing – it’s a very eerie look indeed.

“The question is, could I put this guy back together if I want?” Boone boldly asks, and actually manages it. Sure, the figure doesn’t look quite as he did before being prised apart with screwdrivers, but amazingly his eyes, mouth and chest all align still.
