Mario has gotten the LEGO treatment last year, and now, it is finally time for Luigi to do the same. The LEGO Group has announced the new Luigi Starter Course for the LEGO Super Mario Adventures line.
For the most part, LEGO Luigi is pretty much the same as the Mario counterpart. He comes with the same kind of tech we saw before, like screens that take the place of his eyes, mouth and chest. Pair that with the same wireless tech for the same kind of interactivity. And since both are part of the same LEGO Super Mario Adventures series, it’s probably safe to expect interactivity between the new and existing pieces.
Of course, it’s not just a simple recolour of the existing Mario model. Luigi has his own unique look to him, from his cap and hair to the size of his moustache. The voice work is also naturally different, as Luigi retains his distinct voice, keeping things consistent between the LEGO and video game worlds.
The LEGO Group says that the Adventures with Luigi Starter Course will be available starting 1 August. But you can pre-order them now for RM259.90, via Brick Magic, Box of Bricks, LEGOLAND, Toys ‘R’ Us, or the official LEGO Store on Lazada and Shopee. You’ll also get a themed carrying case if you do. Though at the time of writing, that last one has not yet added the item to the list.
