LEGO has been on a roll with the partnerships recently. Mario is up next!
LEGO and Nintendo have linked up for an intensive collection for any Super Mario fan. The collection entails a starter kit, ten expansion packs, four power-up kits and a surplus of characters from the Super Mario games. This could all be yours for under $600.
The starter course ($60) is required for the other sets to function properly. The kit includes “7 action bricks for different interactions with the LEGO Mario™ figure.” The Mario character is juiced up with “LCD screens in his eyes, mouth and belly to display over 100 different instant reactions to movement.” Mario will also have the ability to play sounds and music from the video game through his built-in speakers.
