Mario’s brother, Luigi (Mario Bros., Luigi’s Mansion 3), is getting his own Lego Super Mario set, Nintendo and The Lego Group announced Tuesday. The Adventures with Luigi Starter Course, a 280-piece set that features a green-colored plumber, a pink Yoshi, a Bone Goomba, and Bowser’s henchman Boom Boom, will be released this August for $59.99.
Luigi, who is famously a coward, behaves much like his more popular brother does in Lego form. The back-up Mario brother features an LCD screen to display different reactions (like fear) and a speaker that plays sounds and music from the Super Mario Bros. games. Lego Luigi also includes a built-in color sensor, which will trigger reactions from purple-colored bricks, indicating poison, and “nougat-brown-colored bricks” that represent the Tower biome.
Lego revealed the Lego Super Mario play sets last March, showing off the unique blend of its interactive digital Mario figure and brick-based play sets. Lego Super Mario launched in August 2020 with the Adventures with Mario Starter Course, 10 expansion sets and four Power-up Packs — and now that everyone remembered Luigi, he’s getting one, too, for the line’s first anniversary.
