LEGO has announced that the upcoming Super Mario range will release in SA sometime in September. Along with the starter packs which were revealed a couple of weeks ago, the brand plans to release a range of new expansions too. The LEGO Super Mario South African pricing has officially been announced and it is not cheap at all. Users who want to own them all will have to fork out quite a penny to do so. However, those looking for the starter pack and one expansion might be able to do so on a budget.
Pre-orders are now open for the LEGO Super Mario Starter Course. This pack sets you back R999 and comes with the LCD screen Mario, a Goomba and Bowser Jr. The 231-piece set lets users create multiple levels allowing you to experience different games and stages. Making use of the LEGO Super Mario app, users can build the set and find new creative ways to play with the collection of toys.
In addition to the starter set, LEGO will release eight expansion sets, four Power-up Packs and multiple character packs. The biggest expansion set is the Bowser’s Castle Boss Battle set that retails for R1759 in SA. Furthermore, other expansion will set you back anything from R349 to R1199. These LEGO expansions take players across the Super Mario World and include iconic characters and items.
