Legos next Mario sets make it easier to build the course of your dreams – Engadget

Finally, Lego is creating a second series of booster pack characters that can be added to any custom course. There are: Huckit Crab, Spiny Cheep Cheep, Ninji, Foo, Parachute Goomba, Fly Guy, Poison Mushroom, Para-Beetle, Thwimp and Bone Goomba.

The first Lego Super Mario sets launched on August 1st. They revolve around a special Mario figure which, thanks to a bunch of sensors, will react to different creations. The plumber will squeal when he steps on a piece of lava, for instance, or chirp triumphantly when he defeats a Shy Guy. Mario only comes in the aptly-named Adventures with Mario Starter Course. Once you’ve bought that pack, however, you’re free to buy the expansion sets in any order you wish. As I wrote in my original review, it’s a charming attempt at recreating Super Mario Maker in the real world.

All of the new sets announced today will be launching on January 1st. Here’s a full breakdown of the brick count and pricing:

  • Super Mario Master Your Adventure Maker Set (366 Pieces): $59.99
