January 2022 Super Mario Sets

November has arrived, and the end of the year is rapidly approaching. Consequently, you can start expecting more and more news about the upcoming selection of sets coming in the new year. In fact, the first announcement is already here with a look at the January 2022 Super Mario sets. These kits star Luigi, which makes sense considering we saw the Adventures with Luigi Starter Course back in August. Three new sets appeared recently on the official LEGO site. We have the summary and Canadian details below.

UPDATE: More Super Mario sets were announced after this article was published at the 2021 China International Import Expo. Click here to go see them.

There you have it, the January 2022 Super Mario sets. This wave clearly has a Luigi’s Mansion theme going on, with each set building up another section of the mansion. Two of the three sets come at a good value. However, the Lab and Poltergust set is on the expensive side, for sure. I am still not a huge fan of this theme, but it seems to be doing quite well since the LEGO® Group continues to deliver wave after wave of new sets. How do you feel about these new kits or the theme in general? Feel free to comment below or reach out on social media.

Until next time,
