Peach's Tower

Mario Odyssey inspired me to build a white, tapering tower with a red roof. Initially I had only planned the tower and a 'normal' LEGO tree (limb elements) - but could not get the look I desired.

After thinking about using spheres as the tree elements, the MOC looked more cartooney than I had intended. This made the addition of the Goomba, Spiney and warp pipe fairly natural. Now it is truly a Mario MOC of the Mushroom Kingdom.

The Goomba design belongs to Matt De Lanoy.

Coincidentally, Colossal Castle Context XV had a "Video Game" category - which also encouraged me to add the hallmark Mario props.

I intentionally left out the main characters of the video game - mostly as I did not like any minifigure renditions. I also like how the 'natural' state of the scene allows your imagination to fill in what may be going on.
