The new LEGO Super Mario sets are terrifying both for your psyche and your wallet.
Legos have always been expensive, and those massive . Then again, so have Nintendo products, which hardly ever really go on sale (especially the games). So when these two wallet-destroying forces combine, we get a collection of Mario Lego sets that cost roughly $580 to completely own, which is over $200 more than a Switch and $300 than a Switch Lite.
There's 16 Mario sets in all, and each one adds new characters and "levels" for the interactive Lego-game mashup. No one has to buy all the sets, of course, but you know people will. It's a neat idea that brings Mario's platforming escapades into the 3D realm with everyone's favorite brick-building toys, but this comes at a steep cost.
The Super Mario Legos have their own smartphone app, and the Mario figure is interactive and makes noise and also has a strange LCD screen in his belly. It's a weird little experiment that's made to promote Nintendo's billion-dollar brand and make some serious cash with merchandising.
