It’s not just a rumour anymore a preview into the LEGO group finally releasing Mario themed sets that will ever be expandable and only your imagination to hold you back.
The starter base set in the line is Set 71360 built up of 231 pieces to start off your Mario stage collection. This set includes your very own Digital Mario figure, Bowser Jr., and everyone’s favorite Goomba. A course able to be your “1st Level” of the Mario adventure where your digital Mario reacts to the stage built around him with pipes, enemies and that elusive end of stage flag.
