Originally teased yesterday through LEGO social media accounts, the enormous replica of the iconic question mark block opens up to reveal four microscale levels from Super Mario 64, celebrating the 25th anniversary of the first 3D Mario game.
The 2,064-piece set includes microscale renditions of Peach’s Castle (as rumoured since July), Bob-omb Battlefield, Cool, Cool Mountain and Lethal Lava Trouble, as well as microfigures of Mario, Princess Peach and King Bob-omb. You’ll also find tiny recreations of a Chain Chomp, Big Bully, Mr. I, Lakitu, penguin, baby penguin and more.
Just like last year’s 71374 Nintendo Entertainment System, you can also add the digital Mario or Luigi figure from 71360 Adventures with Mario or 71387 Adventures with Luigi for interactive play, including unique sound effects and reactions from the microfigures.
“We know how much Super Mario fans have loved the LEGO Super Mario experience, and wanted to tap into even more elements of the traditional gameplay capturing the immersive play experience of Super Mario 64,” said Pablo Gonzalez Gonzalez, Senior Designer at the LEGO Group.
“It’s difficult to imagine the Super Mario Universe without the classic game’s iconic levels full of discovery and secrets. With this amazing set, we’re building on the exciting play experience of LEGO Super Mario, both to bring a bit of nostalgia for those who played the Super Mario 64 video game, but also to introduce these wonderful levels to a whole new audience of Super Mario fans.”
71395 Super Mario 64 Question Mark Block will be available to purchase from October 1 for £159.99 / $169.99 / €169.99.
