It’s a small mercy for fans hoping to find something to buy to qualify for 40416 Ice Skating Rink, which is currently free with a £150 / $150 spend. The vast majority of the LEGO Group’s larger sets are either sold out or on backorder, making the seasonal gift-with-purchase rather poorly timed.
Fortunately, the LEGO Super Mario theme’s largest set will get you over the threshold all on its own. And you’ll have few complaints if you do opt for 71374 Nintendo Entertainment System, because it’s a stunning recreation of the retro console, complete with a companion CRT TV.
The 2,646-piece Nintendo set has come straight back into our Top 20 LEGO Sets List as a result, all the way up at third place. 71360 Adventures with Mario Starter Course is also available to order at LEGO.com, which is handy, as you’ll need the digital Mario figure included in that set to really make the most of 71374 Nintendo Entertainment System.
At the same time, even more flagship LEGO sets have dropped out of stock at LEGO.com. 21322 Pirates of Barracuda Bay, 75288 AT-AT and 75810 The Upside Down are all marked as ‘temporarily out of stock’, meaning you can’t order them at all. When will they come back in stock? We don’t know – but we can keep track for you. Just sign up to our handy stock alerts tool, and we’ll send you an email when they’re available to buy.
