It finally happened: the union that children (and grown-ups) have wanted for so long has come true Super Mario finally available in LEGO form. Typically for Nintendo, LEGO Super Mario sets are more than standard LEGO sets – they are connected via a neat touch of technology that allows you to create Mario lessons and “run” them like you do in plumber’s video games .
The first wave of sets is expected to be released on August 1, 2020, and pre-orders are online for LEGO Super Mario adventures (rather bulky) with Mario Starter Course. The LEGO Mario action figure has small LCD screens powered by two AAA batteries that respond to movement, color and some special bricks. His eyes, mouth and belly respond to these inputs and a small speaker on the face also adds brand sounds and musical phrases from the series.
We scoured the web and searched for the best preorders for the Starter Set and announced extensions to the UK and the United States. We will update this article with more pre-orders as we find them, so check back.
