Update: 3rd August - Lots of new Lego packs added to the guide from the Official Nintendo UK Store, including the Lego Nintendo Entertainment System.
It's finally happened: the union that kids (and big kids) have wanted for so long has come to pass with Super Mario finally available in LEGO form. Typically for Nintendo, the LEGO Super Mario sets are more than just standard LEGO sets - they are connected via a neat touch of technology that enables you to build Mario courses and 'run' them like you do in the plumber's video games.
The first wave of sets released on 1st August 2020, and there are several options available for you if you'd like to get an order in. The LEGO Mario figure has little LCD screens powered by two AAA batteries that react to movement, colour and certain special bricks. His eyes, mouth and belly react to these inputs and a little speaker in the figure adds trademark sounds and musical phrases from the series, too.
We've scoured the web and tracked down the best options for the Starter Set and Expansion Sets in the UK and US. We'll update this article with more options as we find them, so be sure to check back.

What LEGO Super Mario sets are available?
The base set - the Starter Course - can be combined with a number of Expansion Sets that the LEGO Group announced alongside pre-orders for the Starter Set (see above). Each one will "unlock unique challenges and characters to play with and against friends", according to the official PR. All sets are modular and give the builder the opportunity to mix and match to create whatever Mario course they wish to.
The 231-piece Starter Course Set retails for $59.99 / 59,99 € / £49.99.
The first round of announced Expansion Sets include the following (pictured above):
- Piranha Plant Power Slide Expansion Set
- Bowser’s Castle Boss Battle Expansion Set
There is also a LEGO Super Mario app that works in conjunction with the Mario figure and special bricks to track scores and provide digital instructions.
