It looks like Luigi will now finally get the LEGO treatment that he deserves. Thanks to Amazon China, we can now confirm the arrival of a LEGO Super Mario Adventures with Luigi (71387) starter pack sometime this summer.
The new LEGO Super Mario set places Luigi front and center, with his own brick-built obstacle course that rivals that of his older twin brother. Similar to its predecessor, the LEGO Super Mario Adventures with Mario (71360), this new set offering features an interactive version of Luigi complete with all the sensors, LCD screen, and Bluetooth connectivity similar to his LEGO sibling. Though this Luigi-inspired set offers similar functionality to that of Adventures with Mario, my initial impression is that the former is a bit larger and offers brick-built versions of a Bone Goomba, Pink Yoshi, and a Koopa.
As of this posting, LEGO has not yet listed this set over at LEGO Shop@Home. And since this new LEGO Super Mario set has now been revealed via a third-party retailer with a release date of July 2021, we can most likely expect an official LEGO.com listing soon. It is also worthwhile to note that this particular set is just one of the nine new LEGO Super Mario sets that are slated to debut in 2021, showing how intentional LEGO is in further developing this licensed theme.
Thanks to The Brick Fan for the heads up.
