It’s a good time to be a Luigi’s Mansion fan: LEGO has just announced that three Super Mario sets based on the Luigi’s Mansion series are coming to stores on 1st January 2022. Let’s have a look at them, shall we?
LEGO 71401 Luigi’s Mansion Haunt-and-Seek
- RRP £69.99
- 877 pieces
- Age 8+
Haunt-and-Seek is the biggest, and therefore most expensive of the new LEGO Super Mario sets. But for good reason: it packs in tonnes of detail. There’s a King Boo, Toad, Garbage Can Ghost, Grabbing Ghost, and a lot of interactive parts. It looks great, and it’ll make a fantastic addition to any LEGO Super Mario course. Providing you’re brave enough to face the ghosts, of course. Read more about it on LEGO’s website by clicking here.
LEGO 71399 Luigi’s Mansion Entryway
- RRP £34.99
- 504 pieces
- Age 7+
As the name suggests, this provides an entryway into Luigi’s Mansion. It’s a rather grand entrance too, with columns and decorative windows on either side of the door. There’s also a gate and path leading up to the entrance. The buildable figures you’ll find here are Polterpup, Bogmire and Boo. See more details by clicking here.
LEGO 71397 Luigi’s Mansion Lab and Poltergust
- RRP £21.99
- 179 pieces
- Age 6+
The third and final new LEGO Super Mario set is the cheapest of the three. This is both a course expansion and a new suit for Luigi (or Mario): it equips them with the famous Poltergust! Activating the Poltergust starts a new gameplay mode where players must defeat the Ghost Ghost – included in the set. There’s also a buildable Professor E. Gadd figure, along with a small course filled with laboratory trinkets. You can read more about it on LEGO’s website by clicking here.
Psst… notice how we’ve got LEGO 71397, 71399 and 71401, but no 71398 or 71400? It’s likely more LEGO Super Mario sets are still to come that simply haven’t been announced yet. Wonder what they might be?
