NINTENDO POWER

There’s quite a lot of fun new sets to choose from come January. The Super Mario line has proven to have real staying power. The endless expansions really allow for new and innovative fun as the sets continue to release. It’s definitely what The LEGO® Group had hoped for with The Hidden Side theme, but sadly that didn’t prove successful. I myself don’t collect the theme, but I really appreciate how different it is compared to the rest. The interactive playability for kids is wonderful. I know many an AFOL that enjoys the line with their kids for imaginative time together. Punch to the wallet aside, it’s some cool stuff.

What do you guys think of these latest sets of the line in general? Have you picked up any of the Mario sets? Are you excited to grow the worlds even more? Comment in all the usual places and as always, keep on brickin’.
