LEGO Super Mario 2021 expansion packs revealed

The LEGO Group has revealed three new expansion packs for the LEGO Super Mario theme.

71381 Chain Chomp Jungle Encounter Expansion Set, 71382 Piranha Plant Puzzling Challenge Expansion Set and 71383 Wiggler’s Poison Swamp Expansion Set introduces new enemies, challenges and even a new biome.

The first wave of LEGO Super Mario sets featured fire (red), water (blue), sand (yellow) and grass (green) environments, each depicted by plates and bricks in the corresponding colour. All three new expansion packs include purple pieces for the Soda Jungle biome, which is a poisonous pathway that will provoke new reactions from the digital Mario figure.

Here’s all the details and images for the new expansion packs:

“We really want to empower users to be as creative as possible with LEGO Super Mario,” said Simon Kent, Design Director and Creative Lead for LEGO Super Mario. “Today’s expansion sets and new collectible characters have been launched to broaden the horizons of the LEGO Super Mario universe, letting players be as imaginative as possible in the way they have Mario interact with his friends – as well as defeating his enemies.”

The LEGO Super Mario team has also today revealed 71380 Master Your Adventure Maker Set, two new Power-Up Packs, and a second series of Character Packs. All the new sets, including these three expansion packs, will launch on January 1, 2021.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @chriswharfe.
