Lego has announced its next premium Nintendo-licensed product, the Super Mario 64 Question Block.
The 2064-piece model, which will retail for $169 / £159, will be released on October 1.
It looks like a giant question block from the Super Mario games, but opens up to reveal miniature versions of some of the worlds from Super Mario 64.
These include Bob-omb Battlefield (with King Bob-omb at the top), Peach’s Castle, Lethal Lava Land and Cool, Cool Mountain.
It also contains 10 ‘micro figures’ which can be placed on the set – Mario, Yoshi, Princess Peach, King Bob-omb, Chain Chomp, Big Bully, Mr I, Lakitu, a penguin and its baby penguin.
Players can also interact with the block using the Lego Mario and Lego Luigi figures. By placing these on the block they can try to find 10 hidden Power Stars to reveal secret reactions.
Lego teased the set yesterday with a short video showing the block shrouded in darkness, with the words “we’ve got a question for you”.
This is the second ‘premium’, detailed Nintendo build Lego has released, following last year’s Lego NES, which was released in August 2020 at a cost of $229.99 / £209.99.
The set included a brick-built NES model and accompanying 1980’s style television set, complete with scrolling Super Mario Bros scene. It also includes a controller with a connecting cable and plug, and an opening slot for the Game Pak with a locking feature.
Danish toy giant The Lego Group said earlier this year that the Super Mario sets released in 2020 enjoyed one of its “most successful theme launches” to date.
