LEGO Is Retiring Some Super Mario Sets

LEGO has marked several Super Mario sets for retirement on its UK website. If you want to snap them up, your time is limited!
The LEGO Super Mario wave 1 set was released last year. The Super Mario sets had an interactive, chunky design which fans loved. We actually reviewed the Luigi set back in August as well as interviewing the designer Benjamin Ma. LEGO Super Mario sets allow players to build levels and then use Mario (or Luigi, who was released this year) to collect coins.LEGO has marked several Super Mario sets for retirement on its UK website.

Video Games Chronicle reported that the sets that are being retired include:
The Boomer Bill Barrage Expansion Set
The Builder Mario Power-Up Pack
The Whomp’s Lava Trouble Expansion Set
There is also a range of new releases out, including Bowser’s Airship Expansion Set and the Bee Mario Power-Up Pack.
In its annual financial report, LEGO explained that the Super Mario product launch was one of its most successful ever:
“In 2020, we launched LEGO® Super Mario™, which features embedded technology to inspire new ways to play. It was one of our most successful product launches.”
At the same time as retiring several of the first waves of sets, LEGO has also teased a new set as coming soon. The Super Mario 64™ Question Mark Block looks pretty awesome — featuring fold-out mini-levels with brick versions of Mario and Princess Peach. You can grab the Question Mark set for a whopping £159.99 and will be out on 1 October.
