Best Super Mario LEGO Set Checklist

Dexter RoonaLEGO SetsLeave a Comment

Welcome to our Super Mario LEGO set checklist and buyers guide. Here you will find our AFG best picks and the best places that you can buy them.

Let’s get started!

LEGO is famed for its cool building sets. We have the intricate LEGO Technics sets geared for the more experienced and mature builder. There are also the cool Star Wars LEGO sets and Marvel Movie sets.

There really are sets for all ages.

Now we have something new from LEGO.

They have now joined forces with Nintendo to recreate the Super Mario Video Game world in interactive LEGO brick form.

 

What is Super Mario LEGO?

LEGO Super Mario is a range of building sets based on the popular video game platform series Super Mario.

Yes, LEGO has teamed up with Nintendo and the result is a series of really cool Interactive Super Mario-themed LEGO building playsets.

But LEGO Super Mario is more than a box of plastic bricks. It’s an interactive, modular building set, think of Nintendo’s Super Mario Maker video game on the Switch but in LEGO brick form where you build the type of course that you want Mario and Luigi to encounter.

There are no paper instructions included with any of these sets, instead, they are included within an interactive app (Android and IOS) that you download to connect the interactive Mario characters to the environments that you create.

When Mario and Luigi are connected to the LEGO  Super Mario app they become fully interactive with the course that you build.

Mario and Luigi can show expressions and display your score as you tackle the course and you are even shown power-up information.

There is a motion sensor inside the characters that can tell when Mario and Luigi are jumping or falling and in true video game style the brothers are equipped with sound effects and of course can earn coins that show up on your Super Mario LEGO characters chest.

It’s a little super-powered Lego action figure.

There are specially coded bricks on the course enemies and power-ups that trigger effects as you tap Mario along the course.

There are also timed sections and mini-games to complete as you play along.

Start your Super Mario LEGO experience with the Mario and LUIGI starter sets and expand the course with themed expansion sets building your own interactive LEGO Mario World.

Super Mario LEGO Set Checklist – Takeaways

These Mario sets are fun and would make a great Christmas or Birthday gift for your kids but there are a few things to note before you buy any of these sets. Firstly as already stated you do need the Mario Starter kit before your buy any of the expansion sets because it is the starter sets that give you the interactive Mario and Luigi. Without these guys, the expansion sets are just LEGO sets. They only become interactive when Mario or Luigi are introduced.

Secondly, you will need an android or an IOS device so that you can download the app. Its the app that contains the instructions and pairs the interactive figures with the courses that you build and brings the gameplay etc

The Super Mario LEGO sets are a great buy and takes ordinary LEGO in a whole new direction and provides a new powered-up level of game play

.
