Nintendo and LEGO are officially teaming up once again to release a Bowser-themed expansion to the brands’ ever-popular Super Mario sets on January 1, 2024. The LEGO Super Mario sets were announced to the world back in 2020, with the figures featuring interactive digital screens. One of the very first sets that the companies released was the Super Mario Starter Course, along with four powerups, each with its own sound effects for Mario collecting coins.
Over the years, the LEGO Super Mario brand received additional expansions and sets and now features ones such as the Super Mario Mighty Boswer set, the Super Mario Piranha Plant, and the Princess Peach expansion set. The interactive LEGO Super Mario set, which features nine different box sets, was one of Nintendo’s and LEGO’s most successful releases, having landed a spot quickly on Amazon’s bestsellers list just less than a week after the launch.
LEGO Super Mario Sets Could Be a Place for Waluigi to Shine
Super Mario LEGO sets continue to thrive, which may give Waluigi an opportunity to get the kind of attention that he deserves.
Now, the LEGO website has listed a new LEGO Super Mario set for purchase called the Bowser’s Muscle Car Expansion Set, which is slated for release on January 1, 2024. The expansion set will cost $29.99 and has 458 pieces. It will consist of a Bowser made out of LEGO bricks that fans can build, along with his iconic purple muscle car that will have a lever to move the vehicle’s hood as well as activate other features. The Bowser figure will also have an action tag, which can be used for interactive play when combined with other figures such as Mario, Princess Peach, and Luigi, as well as the Super Mario Starter Course set.
Additionally, players can replace Bowser in the driver’s seat with either the Mario, Princess Peach, or Luigi figures, which will affect various muscle car sounds, such as the horn, tire, and engine. While the Bowser’s Muscle Car Expansion Set can be a standalone purchase, it is ideally meant to be combined with one of the available LEGO Super Mario starter courses in order to get the most out of the product.
Super Mario is one of the most popular series in the world, and for good reason, as it has some of the highest-rated Nintendo games since the release of Super Mario Bros. in 1985. The success of the Super Mario Bros. Movie proves that this is a series that fans love, so it is in all likelihood that Nintendo may continue to team up with LEGO to design and release sets based on the Super Mario brand.
Super Mario is one of the biggest names in gaming. The first game in the franchise was 1985’s Super Mario Bros., a game that is credited with helping the gaming industry recover from its two-year crash that began in 1983.
The Super Mario series still has an important place in gaming today, largely thanks to Nintendo’s ability to continuously innovate the platform games.
