The summer 2021 set announcements are starting to roll in. Not long ago, word spread of the upcoming Harry Potter sets. Today, the LEGO® Group announced the latest addition to the Super Mario theme. The Adventures with Luigi Starter Course is coming soon! Actually, you can already pre-order it. However, the release date is still a couple of months away.
The official press release describes the set as follows:
Introduce children to the interactive LEGO® Super Mario™ universe with this Adventures with Luigi Starter Course (71387). An awesome gift toy for trend-setting kids, it features a LEGO® Luigi™ figure that gives instant expressive responses via an LCD screen and speaker. Players earn digital coins for helping LEGO Luigi complete spinning seesaw and flying challenges, interactions with Pink Yoshi and defeating Boom Boom and a Bone Goomba. The nougat-brown-colored bricks in this Tower biome also trigger different reactions from LEGO Luigi, and the ? Block offers extra rewards.

I am curious to see how many waves the Super Mario theme sees. It is quite different from other LEGO® themes and has polarized many in the AFOL community. I know a lot of fans wanted proper Minifigures. Which camp do you belong to? Are you hyped for the Adventures of Luigi Starter Course? Feel free to comment below or reach out on social media.
Until next time,
