Lego’s newest Mario collaboration is an enormous query mark block
Lego’s latest Mario-themed set pays homage to Tremendous Mario 64, an enormous query mark block that unfolds to disclose 4 ranges from the Nintendo 64 recreation: Peach’s Fort, Bob-omb Battlefield, Cool Cool Mountain and Deadly Lava Hassle. The “Lego Tremendous Mario 64? Blockset, to make use of its official title, is made up of over two thousand items and can price $ 169.99 when it hits Lego shops on October 1st.
From the trailer launched as we speak, the set seems nice: 4 blocky dioramas of a recreation that appears fairly blocky even by trendy requirements. However I’ve to separate and level out that so far as I do know, the query mark block by no means actually reveals up in Tremendous Mario 64. Severely, return and take a look at screenshots in the event you do not imagine me! These blocks have small exclamation marks, not query marks!

Together with the degrees, you additionally get some collectible figurines of characters from the unique recreation, together with Princess Peach, King Bob-omb, Chain Chomp and naturally Mario himself. If you happen to’ve saved up with earlier Mario units from Lego, you will be delighted too hear that your present Lego Mario and Luigi characters will even work with the set, apparently unlocking distinctive music and sounds when positioned within the ranges.
The announcement of the brand new set means that Lego has no intention of ending its collaboration with Nintendo. The Danish toy firm launched its first Mario set final 12 months and added a Luigi determine to the combo together with different enlargement units in 2021. It additionally produced a blocky reproduction of the unique Nintendo Leisure System console alongside a miniature retro tv.
Personally, although, I hold my fingers crossed that these units are standard sufficient to make Lego think about some units primarily based on Nintendo’s different main franchises like The Legend of Zelda or Metroid. Plumbers are nice and all, however I’d discover it fairly arduous to withstand just a little Lego reproduction of Samus Aran’s spaceship on my shelf. Perhaps someday?
