The LEGO Group announces a brand-new range of sets and characters, opening up even more new adventures for the LEGO Super Mario experience.
Fans can expand on the LEGO Super Mario products launched earlier this year with a whole new range of sets and Collectible Characters – all designed to help them build a Super Mario world that’s unique to them and comes alive exactly how they want it to.
Master Your Adventure Maker Set
Among the new sets is the Master Your Adventure Maker Set – a creative toolbox, which enables children to completely customise LEGO Super Mario building, play time and ways to earn coins. Using the Customisation Machine included in the Maker Set, children can change how LEGO Mario reacts to three Special Bricks, offering variety in play, excitement and an element of surprise.
The Maker Set also introduces a new special Start Pipe that will shuffle the known rules of the level play, in that players are challenged to reach the Goal Pole in less time, yet with increased rewards up for grabs. The Maker Set comes with 366 pieces, all selected to ensure that children can unleash their creativity and customise their own levels for themselves or other players.
The other sets introduced are the:
- Chain Chomp Jungle Encounter Expansion Set
- Piranha Plant Puzzling Challenge Expansion Set
- Wiggler’s Poison Swamp Expansion Set
- Penguin Mario Power-Up Pack
- Tanooki Mario Power-Up Pack
Also unveiled is the Series 2 of the LEGO Super Mario Character Packs, all featuring an action tag that LEGO Mario can read for fans to easily integrate into the level play. Series 2 features ten brand new collectible, buildable characters. Kept a surprise until opened, fans could be getting a:
- Huckit Crab
- Spiny Cheep Cheep
- Parachute Goomba
- Fly Guy
- Poison Mushroom
- Bone Goomba
The new sets and characters will give fans the chance to, among other things, have LEGO Mario slide on his belly as Penguin Mario or spin round as Tanooki Mario. The sets will also introduce much-loved enemies including the Piranha-Plants, Larry, a Goomba, Wiggler, and Koopa Paratroopa, to the play, all of who can be defeated or played with for coin rewards.
Each Expansion Set and Collectible Character is designed to be used with the entry point set, featuring seven action bricks for different interactions with the LEGO Mario figure, which has LCD screens in its eyes, mouth and belly to display instant reactions to movement, colour and action bricks.
Building on the existing biomes of water (blue), fire (red), sand (yellow) and grass (green), this second wave of products introduces Soda Jungle, a whole new biome characterised by its purple colour, which represents poison, that enables children to experience different reactions from LEGO Mario and new ways of playing.
All sets and characters are compatible, allowing fans to combine sets and characters announced today with the Starter Course and all other LEGO Super Mario products revealed in June this year. All sets come with their own series of distinctive challenges and characters, and have also been designed to work alongside the free LEGO Super Mario app, so fans can make the most of the experience when playing solo, or when challenging friends or family members.
The app hosts 3D Building Instructions for the sets, keeps track of scores and provides inspiration for builds and ways of playing to encourage continuous rebuilding and extended playtime.
