Level Up With Lego Super Mario Details And Video

Lego Super Mario Theme Details

Lego has revealed new details about their new theme based on Super Mario. Previously they showcased a short teaser video on MAR10 day, and now they are showing off a lot more of the theme. It is very clear in the provided details that this set is being produced for kids. The whole theme is a new direction for Lego, which they put best stating:

“Neither a video game nor a traditional LEGO brick-based set, LEGO® Super Mario™ is a new product line that features an interactive LEGO Mario figure who collects coins in real-life game levels created with LEGO bricks. The new line will let kids experience the playful world of Super Mario like never before. Super Mario will be brought to life in the physical LEGO world and new levels of challenge and styles of play will be part of the iconic LEGO experience enjoyed by generations.”

There is no release date or pricing details at this time. Lego did announce that more information is coming soon, with a planned release in the Summer of 2020.

Lego Goomba And Mario
Lego Super Mario Set

This new theme seems to fit in between Duplo and the Classic System sets. They share a lot in common with the recent Lego Junior sets. A lot of big pieces and simple building techniques.

The new sets features a bluetooth enabled Mario, with interactive screens and speakers. With these new electronic abilities Mario is able to interact with the Lego set by keeping scores, playing music, and setting a timer. He features realativly few brick customizing features. It looks like only the iconic Mario hat and a few 1×1 rounds are removable.

The new Lego Super Mario theme looks a whole lot like the Mario Party video games. The sets combine to create a board game looking layout. You could say they are recreating the platforming levels from the games. As you move Lego Mario around you can stomp on Goombas, defeat Koopa Troopas, swim past Bloopers, and embarrass Shy Guys. There is even a boss at the end, this time its Baby Bowser.

Lego Shy Guy

Along the way Lego Mario can find some help. A brick built Lego Yoshi, a handy Warp Pipe, and even Toad’s house. Some quick notes about the theme: It seems that the interactive features are found in various new Lego pieces. The big feet piece found on Yoshi and the Shy Guy probably hides some of the electronics, as does the turtle shell on Baby Bower. There are also a lot of new plates. A very interesting design in the green plates topping the landscaping is that they are probably hiding other electronic bits.

The Lego Super Mario theme looks like a lot of fun for kids. The Mario Party design is interesting, and all the features of Bluetooth Mario could prove to be fun.

New Lego Minions Theme, Ready To Invent In April

Lego Minions Theme 75551 Brick Built Minions And Their Lair

Lego Minions are one of the most popular themes for MOCs. Almost everybody seems to like them, and there are a million different ways to build them. So it is no surprise that Lego has officially announced a new Lego Minions Theme. Five sets were revealed at the 2020 New York Toy Fair. The biggest set (and coolest) revealed is 75551 Brick-built Minions and their Lair. It features two substantial brick built minions, Kevin and Stuart. They look great on their own, but they also come with 3 Minion Figures/Minifigures. They also mention that you can rebuild Kevin into Bob, but exactly what is going on is unclear in the photos.

The surprise with this set is that the giant Minions can open up to reveal their hidden lairs/rooms. Kevin opens up into a tall laboratory. Perfect for inventing crazy stuff. While Stuart opens up into a bedroom. Full of toys and games. The new sets also feature Instructions PLUS, a new interactive set of building instructions for your phone and tablet.

An easy way to get a full collection of the Ninjas in their rare black outfits.  The main Airjitzu Temple is flanked by a Blacksmiths workshop and a Smuggler’s Market. All connected with a charming bridge. This set is very reminiscent of the super popular Medieval Market Village from a few years ago. There is even a fully working Shadow Theater in the Temples basement. With moving parts, and light up features.

Lego Ideas Third 2014 Review (#013) Revealed

Lego Ideas 2014 Review

The latest Lego Ideas Review (Third 2014, #013) has been officially revealed. The next Ideas set will be the Marble Maze. This set will feature a fully working marble labyrinth. The kind with two knobs, marbles, and pitfalls all wrapped up in a wooden box (in this case a Lego box). However the final model will be designed, it will be featuring a good amount of technic building, which Lego Ideas hasn’t used too much.

The other proposed sets that didn’t make the cut in this review included the Avengers Helicarrier, The Goonies Inferno Pirate Ship, The Natural History Museum, The Lord of the Rings Minas Tirith, Jurassic Park Gate, a Piano, and the Flying Dutchman. No reasons for the denial were given. Lego did leave us with a little surprise, saying that they were still considering the F7A Hornet from the video game Star Citizen. Check out the full video below.

Snake is exclusive to this set, and Apu features a new clothing. Someone who works for Lego is a Simpsons fan, notice that they fit Apu’s full name on the box: Apu Nahasapeemapetilon. Wow.

Lego The Simpsons Kwik-E-Mart 71016 Set

The Kwik-E-Mart playset will include 2,179 pieces and retails for $199.99. The same price point as the Lego Simpsons House. (Reviewed here) The whole set is jam packed full of details.

They even included the secret garden on the rooftop, where Apu goes to for refuge from the modern world.

This set is looking like a must buy for Simpsons fans, and probably Lego fans too. There is an abundance of color, and rare shades, all over the Kwik-E-Mart. Or, as Lego says the “store is packed with more rich, colorful details than a Mr. Burns birthday cake has candles!” The first thing I will be doing is adding Milhouse to the display and recreating the famous all-syrup Super Squishy bender (here). Lets go crazy broadway style!

First Image of the New Lego Minecraft Micro World: The End (21107)

Lego Minecraft Micro World The End 21107

The first photo of the new Lego Minecraft Micro World: The End (21107) has been revealed. The new set will be available sometime this summer (2014). The set designer, Steen, is showing off the new set. Which will feature the Endermen and an Ender Dragon. This is the forth set in the line, and if Lego were to discontinue the theme this would be the perfect release. Or, maybe there are still other Minecraft Micro Worlds in the works…

I wonder how this set will fit in with the other Minecraft Micro Worlds.

Lego Star Wars Sandcrawler (75059) Officially Revealed

Lego Star Wars Sandcrawler 75059 Box Back

The final design of the Sandcrawler contains a whole lot of exposed studs. It looks like a lot of SNOT techniques are used to achieve some of the odd angles but Lego opted to not hide the studs. Giving the Sandcrawler a more messy appearance then expected. The final model is almost entirely made up of shades of brown. Keeping with the source material. So if you are looking to rapidly expand your collection of brown bricks, this will be the set for you.

Lego Star Wars Sandcrawler 75059

The new Lego Sandcrawler is not just a brown box. The Lego designers have squeezed an impressive amount of features into the design. With 2 fully working cranes, knob based steering, 6+ opening panels, and a whole lot of hidden barrels and storage space.

Lego Ghostbusters (21108) CUUSOO set officially revealed!

Lego Ghostbusters 21108 Minifigures

“I tried to think of the most harmless thing. Something I loved from my childhood. Something that could never ever possibly destroy us.” — Dr. Ray Stantz

It seems that the upcoming Lego Ghostbusters (21108) CUUSOO set will be upon us sooner then expected. At the recent Toy Fair (2014), Lego officially revealed details and photos for the new set. The Lego Ghostbusters (21108) will be available for purchase in June 2014 with a retail price of $49.99. The set will include a very slick looking Ecto-1, and the Ghostbusters themselves: Dr. Peter Venkman, Dr. Raymond “Ray” Stantz, Dr. Egon Spengler, and Winston Zeddemore. The original design was done by Brent Waller, and most of his ideas have been persevered here (except for the Firehouse, which is understandably missing).

Lego Ghostbusters 21108 Set

Not only do the Minifigures have an uncanny resemblance to the Ghostbusters, but the Ecto-1 is almost perfect. It features some SNOT building techniques that really help to preserve the iconic look. A few noticable details are the beautiful Lego blue hoses, and the whip accessory in black.

Lego Ghostbusters 21108 Ecto-1

“This fun and iconic vehicle from the blockbusting ‘80s movie is fully loaded with all the paranormal detection equipment needed to track down those ghastly ghosts. It also features cool Ghostbusters logo decoration, removable roof, tracking computer and seats for 3 minifigures.”
