This is a full starter course complete with everything you need to play the LEGO Super Mario “game”. In theory you could get this set and never actually get the Mario.

The included Luigi is fully interactive just like his brother. It isn’t entirely clear how it will work if you have both characters. Hopefully it enable some kind of two-player experience.

The Luigi starter course has 280 pieces and comes with Pink Yoshi, Boom Boom and Bone Goomba figures.

The set will cost $89.99 here in Australia and can be pre-ordered here before it’s August 1st release. [affiliate link]

LEGO Masters Season 3 – Episode 2 Recap

It’s time for episode 2 and this one is going to get messy!

If you haven’t watched the episode yet turn away now, there are spoilers below!

Tonight is Castle’s vs Cannonballs. That’s right it’s more slow motion destruction. These episodes are always fun but it can come down to the luck of whether your slow-mo looks good or bad.

The teams arrive and are confronted by a bowling lane and some brick built pins. But that’s just to demonstrate the concept of destruction. They will all have to build a massive castle.

LEGO Masters Season 3 – Episode 1 Recap

And we are back! Just like last year I am going to try my best do a recap of each episode of LEGO Masters Season 3. If you haven’t watched the episode yet turn away now.

We open with Brickman and Hamish and a little bit of COVID awkwardness.

LEGO Website team frantically trying to find a Time Teacher set

Once upon a time LEGO released a set called Time Teacher, to teach children how to tell the time.

Clearly the team in charge of VIP promotions never got a copy of this set because it seems nobody knows when 9am is.

For those of you who missed out on the Ulysses Space Probe set, I’m sorry. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to sit and refresh the page all day waiting for somebody at LEGO to finally make it live.

To those of you who did get one, congratulations.

Ulysses Space Probe available at 9am AEST… hopefully

After a confusing email yesterday it appears that the Ulysses Space Probe VIP reward will be going live shortly at 9am AEST.

2c168842-267e-4530-86e1-5db7786814c6

The set will cost you 1800 VIP points to redeem. Now is a great time to put in an order, get this set and earn double VIP points.

You’ll be able to get yours via the VIP rewards centre.

Hopefully this does actually go live when it is meant to.

Looney Tunes CMF Series officially revealed

After leaks and early sales all over the world LEGO has today officially shared the full line-up of the highly anticipated Looney Tunes CMF series.

looney-tunes-cmf-lineup-b

There are no chase Minfigures in this series so it should be possible to split a box with your friends.

Overall I really like these. Obviously there are some characters better suited to the minifigure format than others. There are also probably characters that people wish were included.

Do you plan on picking these up? Let me know in the comments.
