“It’s a me, Lego Mario!”
It’s MAR10 Day (March 10th), a celebration of everything Mario related. For the event Nintendo is pushing coupons and discounts on various Mario video games and products. But the surprising news is from Lego, they have announced an official Lego Super Mario theme coming soon. Not a lot of details are available, other than the announcement teaser. The short video shows off what looks like the famous Mario Mario in some sort of Lego form. Clearly not a Minifigure. It looks like a whole new type of figure. Judging by the mostly standard Lego arms, the body is much shorter and wider than normal. Perched on top is an almost square head. Not unlike the Minecraft theme, but with even less in common with the Minifig. It is also unclear if this will be a normal theme in the Classic system, or something closer to the Duplo system. Let us hope that Lego and Nintendo don’t forget about the best Mario brother… Luigi!
