The first set among many from the LEGO Super Mario theme has been revealed already, and with it comes a nice pre-order freebie. LEGO Shop@Home has been updated to include the LEGO Super Mario Monty Mole & Super Mushroom (40414) expansion set as a pre-order gift for those who managed to bag the LEGO Super Mario Starter Course (71360) base set.
This free expansion set comes in at 163 pieces and has a retail value of $14.99. It features a brick version of a Super Mushroom (or Power Mushroom), a Stone Eye from the New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, and the cunning Monty Mole. A closer look at some of the pieces of this expansion set reveals several sensor tiles where the LEGO Super Mario figure can interact with. As previously revealed, the said figure is equipped with several sensors that will interact with certain set elements or pieces coming from future expansion sets. The LEGO Super Mario figure is also equipped with LCD screens and speakers for that leveled-up play feature and building experience. LEGO also intends this theme to be modular, so builders and hobbyists can re-arrange all these sets in many different ways possible.
It’s not yet sure when this pre-order bonus will go live once again since the LEGO Super Mario Starter Course is now immediately out of stock. Though LEGO specifically states this promotional item will be made available until July 31, it’s yet to be seen when it will be offered once again. As a side note, you might be interested to know that Walmart also carries the LEGO Super Mario Starter Course and is still currently available. However, the better deal is still with LEGO Shop@Home since it has the LEGO Super Mario Monty Mole & Super Mushroom (40414) expansion as a gift-with-purchase item.
