This star can be collected in 0 A presses.

Mario first manipulates the fly guy so he flies to near the ship. He also manipulates Lakitu so he flies to near the ship. Then Mario uses VSC, a lakitu bounce and a groundpound to get up to the ship. He climbs up the ship's mast, continuing to manipulate the fly guy. Then Mario uses fly guy's knockback to get momentum and bounces on him to start twirling. This is just enough to get to the platform with the star. Mario dive-recovers to break the box and lets Chuckya throw him into the star.
