LEGO Super Mario 71360 Adventures with Mario Starter Course is the base set in the upcoming theme, which was announced a few weeks ago. Hoth Bricks has discovered the images at Amazon Spain.
This set 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. Different squares that Mario placed on lead to different reactions, with lava for example leading to fire appearing on the figure’s chest.
Elsewhere in 71360 Adventures with Mario Starter Course, fans will be building a course to send the character around as well as Bowser Jr. and a Goomba.
The French website indicates that the set will be priced at €59.99, use 231 pieces and be released on August 1, earlier than the October date Brick Fanatics had previously heard.
