Super Mario Lego Pre-Orders Available Now

The Lego Super Mario Adventures with Mario Starter Course Lego kit will be joined by two expansion sets that let you add to your creations.


Super Mario Lego Starter Course pre-orders sold out almost instantly when they were made available last month. A new round of pre-orders are live at the Walmart and the Lego Store, so now's your chance to secure the first Super Mario Lego set ahead of its August 1 release.

The Adventures with Mario Starter Course is a Mario Maker-style assortment of blocks and items that will let people build their own physical Mario levels. A fancy teched-up Mario figure makes noise and displays different colors with LCD screens when he interacts with certain "Action Blocks" in the set. All told, the kit comes with 231 pieces and requires two AAA batteries to power the Mario figure.

You'll also be able to add to your courses with expansion sets. The first two sets, the Piranha Plant Power Slide and Bowser's Castle Boss Battle, were revealed in a video Nintendo posted to Twitter. Piranha Plant Power Slide will cost $30, while Bowser's Castle Boss Battle will set you back $100. Both expansion sets will release August 1 as well, but they aren't available to pre-order just yet.
