The 280-piece set will retail for £49.99 in the UK, $59.99 in the US and €59.99 in Europe. That’s in line with last year’s 71360 Adventures with Mario Starter Course, only with 49 more pieces in the box.
You’ll be able to buy 71387 Adventures with Luigi Starter Course – which introduces a brand new digital figure to the video game theme – from August 1, although it’s already available to pre-order through LEGO.com. And if you buy today, you’ll also secure double VIP points on your entire purchase.
As expected, the new starter course also introduces a new environment, represented by medium nougat bricks, which is apparently called the ‘Tower biome’, and will trigger unique reactions from LEGO Luigi. There’s no confirmation yet on whether Mario will have the same reactions, but we’ll keep you posted.
Alongside the lesser-known Mario Bro, 71387 Adventures with Luigi Starter Course includes a question mark block, buildable Pink Yoshi, and two enemies in Boom Boom and Bone Goomba. You’ll also net everything you need to set up a course – namely the Start Pipe and Goal Pole – which means you can grab this independently of 71360 Adventures with Mario Starter Course.
