What are the upcoming Mario Lego sets?

The eight sets being released in collaboration with Nintendo’s prize plumber are expected to be released on August 1 and have a wide range of styles.

There are three sets that share a theme, the ‘Adventures With Interactive LEGO’ sets. There’s one each for Mario, Luigi, and Peach. These feature interactive figurines of the characters with voice lines that trigger as you play with the buildable environments. The Adventures With Interactive LEGO Mario set includes several iconic characters – Bowser Jr., Yoshi, and a Goomba are all part of the set.

The five other sets are all environments inspired by Mario levels and enemies and can be used alongside the interactive figures to create real-life Mario levels to guide the characters through. The sets are:

  • Soda Jungle Maker Set, which includes a pink Shy Guy, a Wriggler, and a Pirhana Plant
  • Goombas’ Playground, which includes three Goombas
  • The Bowser Express Train, which is a train set that has a Hammer Bro and several other characters
  • King Boo’s Haunted Mansion, featuring King Boo and his mansion
  • Battle with Roy at Peach’s Castle, which has a catapult and a Chain Chomp
