There was quite a bit of excitement generated when Nintendo and Lego revealed that the two companies will finally be teaming up after years of fans fantasizing that they would. For those who haven’t had the chance, take a look at the collaboration in the below video:

The unique figurine appears set to boast a unique style of interaction very much in keeping with the spirit of the video games of which the plumber calls home. Everything has been looking good thus far, but the question of “when will it launch?” has lingered— until now! The Lego Super Mario Adventures Mario Starter Course (that’s a mouthful!) arrives on August 1. Here’s a bit from the press release:

Fans will be able to begin exploring the fun-packed LEGO Super Mario universe with the Adventures with Mario Starter Course. This entry point set to the world of LEGO Super Mario is needed to unlock expansion sets and features seven action bricks for different interactions with the LEGO Mario figure that are only included in this set.

The LEGO Mario figure itself has LCD screens in his eyes, mouth and belly to display a wide variety of instant reactions to movement, color and action bricks. Also included is a speaker that plays iconic sounds and music from the video game series.

Hit up this link if you’d like to see what the official Lego website has to say about its Super Mario (plastic) bricks. The set is expected to launch alongside two others. We’ve put together the set names and pricing, as follows:

  • Mario Starter Course ($59.99)
  • Piranha Plant Power Slide Expansion Set ($29.99)
  • Bowser’s Castle Boss Battle Expansion Set ($99.99)

This is all pretty exciting stuff… and something to dread if you’re like this writer and rapidly running out of shelf and storage space!
