After some teasing and on-line hypothesis, Lego has formally revealed its subsequent collaboration with Nintendo: A brick-built Piranha Plant that may match completely in your desk or bookshelf. Not like earlier Lego Mario units, this one gained’t break the financial institution with its price ticket.

Nintendo and Lego have been working collectively for a couple of years now on Tremendous Mario-themed units, together with a preferred line that options digital Mario characters and customized ranges constructed out of Lego bricks and items. This collaboration between the 2 family-friendly manufacturers has led to some massive and costly units, just like the impressively giant Bowser from 2022 and the big Tremendous Mario 64 block from 2021. Whereas these units had been cool, they weren’t low-cost, with Bowser costing $270 and the large block priced at $170. So I used to be pleasantly shocked to see Lego’s newest Nintendo set—an exquisite trying Piranha Plant—is loads lower than $100.

Revealed on Thursday, The Lego Piranha Plant—set quantity 71426—is 540 items and prices $60. Based on Lego’s web site, the Piranha Plant is ready to launch on November 6.

The oddly inexpensive Mario-themed plant set isn’t as dear as that rad NES set, nevertheless it doesn’t appear to be a price range set, both. The brick constructed Piranha Plant isn’t blocky or too coated in customized items, so it nonetheless appears correctly Lego whereas additionally being immediately recognizable. That’s not straightforward to do, I imply, have a look at Lego Chewbacca. Additionally, it’s good to see such an inexpensive set with absolutely posable components. The set’s plant head, mouth, stalk, and leaves could be moved and set into humorous (or suggestive) poses. And Lego’s web site mentions that the set additionally comes with two Tremendous Mario cash.

It ought to be famous that this Piranha Plant set can’t join or work together with the Tremendous Mario playsets and ranges. Nonetheless, you could possibly simply put this man subsequent to the degrees and it will look superior. I imply, it will be bizarre if somebody tried to cease you.

I actually hope that is simply the beginning of one thing new. I’d like to see extra Mario enemies and characters in inexpensive brick-built show units like this, as an alternative of all the things being costly, large, or related to the level-based playsets. Subsequent up: I desire a Goomba the dimensions of a cantaloupe.
