A new leak has revealed nine new Nintendo-themed Lego sets are on the way, one of which will cost $229.99 – the same amount the NES Lego set retailed for (thanks, VGC).

The sets were discovered as listings on Eugene Toy & Hobby under the codename ‘Leaf’ – the same codename used for all of the products in the line. The listings were taken down shortly after being discovered, but the numbers relate to listings spotted by German Lego fansite Promobricks last year. The site was not aware that the listings were Nintendo-related at that time.

Promobricks says that eight of the nine sets will release on August 1, 2022. The most expensive set will release on October 1, 2022.

Here are the set numbers:

  • 71403 TBC – $59.99
  • 71404 TBC – $9.99
  • 71405 TBC – $19.99
  • 71406 TBC – $29.99
  • 71407 TBC – $79.99
  • 71408 TBC – $129.99
  • 71409 TBC – $69.99
  • 71410 TBC – $5.99
  • 71411 TBC – $229.99

It's likely that many of these sets will be part of the growing Super Mario line, but set 71411 carries an 18 rating, which means it will join the Lego NES and the $169 Super Mario 64 Question Block in the company's adult-focused range.
