Lego and Nintendo finally unveiled the full Lego Super Mario line ahead of its Aug. 1 release date. Though the Starter Course is necessary for kicking things off, Lego will launch the line with 10 expansion sets and four Power-up Packs, which add new outfits and, well, power-ups for Mario.

The two companies announced the collaboration in March, noting that it’s part-game, part brick-building. Lego Super Mario builders will be able to construct levels and actually move their Mario figure through the courses to defeat enemies and collect coins. It’s all centered on this new, interactive Lego Mario figure that tracks a player/builder’s progress. New details have been released periodically, but this is the first time we’re learning about the full launch line-up.

With the expansion packs, which resemble different Mario franchise lands, players will collect 10 different enemy characters, like Fuzzy, Spiny, Bullet Bill, Bob-omb, and more.

Lego also detailed a new Lego Super Mario app that will “further enhance the physical play experience,” Lego said in a news release Tuesday. The app will track scores and assist with building instructions.

Here’s the full launch lineup:

  • Adventures with Mario Starter Course — $59.99
  • Guarded Fortress Expansion Set — $49.99
