Decision on Our Ability to Produce this Project

First and foremost, congratulations on the over 1,100 supporters for this project on LEGO® CUUSOO! Your Super Mario models are amazing and capture the spirit of the classic game in LEGO bricks.

As we are huge Super Mario fans, it pains us to say we've looked into the licensing potential and another company has the construction toy license we will not consider Super Mario Bros. further.

The challenge with allowing IP-related projects on LEGO CUUSOO is that there is the potential of such a conflict, either with an existing license or with a competitive licensor. Still, it's our view that it is better to be open and allow for possibilities, knowing there will be "no" answers along the way, than shut out the potential of IP-based products altogether.

We have chosen to archive this project now since we know it is not feasible. There are too many projects to check each in-depth for license conflicts when they are first submitted, so instead we're looking deeper at projects that start to gain momentum.

Opening ourselves to new product suggestions invites popular ideas that don't always work. We are grateful for the spirit behind projects like the Super Mario Project and for the opportunity to be challenged. It keeps us sharp and looking toward the future of the LEGO brick.
