Poor little Mario was looking for a power-up, and got stuck in the machine. I guess he didn't want to win it the normal way. I wanted to make a compliment piece for my Wario Fortune Teller, so I came up with this. I had a bunch of little toys lying around, and this was a great way to use up some of them. Can you recognize the different characters?
I used a boardwalk bank and a Mario Kart 64 Mario I had lying around. I got my inspiration when I was googling claw machines and I saw the stories of kids being stuck in the machines. I thought this would be hilarious, so I made it. I have one more machine I am making, and then I will be done with them. If you would like to see more pictures, go to My Flickr Page.
I am trying to figure out a place to start a store to sell my stuff, but ebay is way too expensive. Keep an eye out, and I will let you know if I find a place.
