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.
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 today are the Chain Chomp Jungle Encounter Expansion Set, the Piranha Plant Puzzling Challenge Expansion Set, the Wiggler’s Poison Swamp Expansion Set, Penguin Mario Power-Up Pack and the Tanooki Mario Power-Up Pack.
Also announced today is 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, Ninji, Foo, Parachute Goomba, Fly Guy, Poison Mushroom, Para-Beetle, Thwimp or a 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 whom can be defeated or played with for coin rewards.
“It wouldn’t be Super Mario if we weren’t constantly creating new worlds and adventures for everyone’s favourite Plumber,” said Simon Kent, Design Director and Creative Lead for LEGO Super Mario, the LEGO Group. “The LEGO Super Mario sets we released earlier this year have been extremely well-received by fans and we’re really excited to build on those with even more characters and experiences today. We really want to empower users to be as creative as possible with LEGO Super Mario – and today’s expansion sets and new collectible characters have been launched to broaden the horizons of the LEGO Super Mario universe, letting players be as imaginative as possible in the way they have Mario interact with his friends – as well as defeating his enemies.”
