Lego’s newest Mario-themed set is a big homage to Tremendous Mario 64, a large query mark block that unfolds to disclose 4 ranges from the Nintendo 64 sport: Peach’s Fort, Bob-omb Battlefield, Cool Cool Mountain, and Deadly Lava Hassle. The “Lego Tremendous Mario 64 ? Block set,” to make use of its official title, is made up of over two thousand items and can price $169.99 when it goes on sale in Lego’s shops on October 1st.
From the trailer launched right now, the set seems nice: 4 blocky dioramas of a sport that itself seems fairly blocky by trendy requirements. However I’ve to separate hairs and level out that, so far as I’m conscious, the query mark block by no means really seems in Tremendous Mario 64. Severely, return and have a look at screenshots when you don’t imagine me! These blocks have little exclamation marks on them, not query marks!
Together with the degrees, you additionally get a number of collectible figurines of characters from the unique sport, together with Princess Peach, King Bob-omb, Chain Chomp, and naturally, Mario himself. In the event you’ve been maintaining with Lego’s earlier Mario units, then you definitely’ll be glad to listen to that your current Lego Mario and Luigi collectible figurines will even work with the set and can apparently unlock distinctive music and sounds when positioned within the ranges.
The announcement of the brand new set means that Lego has no intention of bringing its collaborations with Nintendo to an finish. The Danish toy firm launched its first Mario set last year and added a Luigi figurine into the mix in 2021, together with other expansion sets. It additionally produced a blocky replica of the original Nintendo Entertainment System console alongside a miniature retro TV.
Personally, although, I’m crossing my fingers that these units are well-liked sufficient to get Lego to think about some units primarily based on Nintendo’s different main franchises like The Legend of Zelda or Metroid. Plumber’s are nice and all, however I’d discover it fairly arduous to withstand having a small Lego reproduction of Samus Aran’s spaceship on my shelf. Perhaps at some point?
