LEGO ANNOUNCES NEW Super Mario Expansion Packs and Blind Bags!!!! ALL SETS REVEALED!

All LEGO Super Mario sets have been announced by LEGO today!

LEGO announced today that the world of Super Mario and LEGO are expanding even more with the addition of eight new expansion sets. In addition to that, there will also be mystery packs featuring one buildable character villains. Check out my video to see all of the sets, and don't forget to please like, subscribe, follow me on social media, and all of that jazz!

Each expansion set is a course that electronic Super Mario can travel through in order to complete to get to the next level. Each expansion set features different elements of the vast world of Super Mario, and you will find that each expansion set includes their level of nostalgia from the koopas to goombas. You will have to get the LEGO Super Mario Starter Pack first to fully enjoy the interactive capabilities of each expansion pack. LEGO and Super Mario fans can pick and choose their levels, or even collect the expansion packs as stand-alone sets. 

You can also collect costumes for Mario using the Power-Up Packs that include different outfits for Mario to wear, thus, making each level even more immersive!

In addition to the expansion sets, there will be a blind bad collection featuring 10 villains. The mystery packs will include a buildable villain, you can get Paragoomba, Fuzzy, Spiny, Buzzy Beetle, Bullet Bill, Bob-omb, Eep Cheep, Blooper, Urchin or Peepa! I will be very happy with a bunch of Bullet Bill duplicates!

The full LEGO Super Mario assortment will launch August 1st 2020, but fans can pre-order the LEGO Super Mario Starter Course on www.LEGO.com and from select leading retailers around the world now (subject to availability).

I think the blind bags are a great way to build up your world and use the free app to help build each character. I honestly feel that LEGO mini figures would have been a great addition to this collection, but after looking at the expansion sets, they really do not fit. Johnathan Bennink, Digital Design Lead on LEGO Super Mario and his team brought this new world of Super Mario to life, thus allowing a whole new way to play with LEGO. Not only are you building, but your imagination is running wild, and giving Super Mario life in brick form.

“The reaction to LEGO Super Mario has been incredible,” said Jonathan Bennink, Digital Design Lead on LEGO Super Mario, the LEGO Group. “Super Mario is such an icon – and fans have been highly anticipating the release of the full details of the product line. Our entire range – from the Starter Course to the Power Up Packs, through to the Expansion Sets and Character Packs – have been built to bring Super Mario, his friends – and his enemies – to life. We love how creative Nintendo and LEGO fans are, and can’t wait for them to unleash their imaginations in how they interact with Super Mario in the real world.”  

What do you think of the new expansion sets and the announcement of the mystery pack?
