Launching in August, LEGO Super Mario aims to recreate a video game with physical LEGO bricks and the help of an interactive Mario figure. For the first fortnight, anyone spending $40 or more on products from the theme at LEGO.com will get 30385 Super Mushroom Surprise Expansion Set for free.
71360 Adventures with Mario Starter Course includes the Super Mario figure, which activates not just this model but all of the other sets in the theme too. The character must then be placed on certain squares to collect coins, just as he does in classic Super Mario video games. Physical LEGO Stores will offer the previously revealed 40414 Monty Mole & Super Mushroom Expansion Set for free with the starter pack, immediately giving fans a more extensive layout to start from.
