The Odyssey from Super Mario Odyssey
Mario’s vessel on his most recent adventure, The Odyssey provides safe passage all over the world as he chases after the Princess Peach who has been captured by Bowser, who attends to wed the damsel in distress. Mario’s companion in Super Mario Odyssey is Cappy, an anthropomorphic hat who allows Mario to take the abilities of different creatures and objects throughout the saga. The airship itself is designed in Cappy’s image as it resembles a top hat that took to the skies with the help of Power Moons. In order to catch up with Bowser, Mario and Cappy must explore each world and find enough power moons to continue their journey!

This was an absolute labour of love for me since I bought my Nintendo Switch and Super Mario Odyssey back in March. I instantly fell in love with the game and was promptly inspired to build The Odyssey. It took me more than 3 months of on and off building to complete it, and many bricklink order to boot. A number of times I hit design roadblocks, but was able to perservere with the help of some peers and idea machines (huge shoutout to Tim, Alec, Simon, Tyler, Sean and Nick). I also have Victor from EclipseGrafx to thank for the fabulous custom minifigure and to Markus for the fabulous photo edit. Their support and constructive criticism are why I love this community so much. This was the most challenging build i’ve ever attempted and i’m really happy with how it turned out.
Hope you like it!
