LEGO and Nintendo fans can expect more exciting sets as the LEGO Super Mario theme expands. LEGO recently gave us a peek of more LEGO Donkey Kong characters to come, adding to the first set revealed last MAR10 celebrations. As it turns out, more LEGO Donkey Kong sets will arrive this summer, and we can expect to see not just Donkey Kong but also other popular characters from the franchise.
Here’s the sneak peek LEGO shared over social media:

From the get-go, we can see that the following iconic DK characters will be given the LEGO treatment.
More LEGO Donkey Kong Characters To Be Expected
Joining Donkey Kong is his loyal sidekick, Diddy Kong. The character has been a fan favorite since its debut in the game Donkey Kong Country in 1994. The LEGO version of Diddy Kong is sure to be a hit among collectors and gamers alike.
Another character to join the DK crew is Dixie Kong, who first appeared in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest. Dixie Kong is known for her unique abilities, including using her ponytail to float and fly.
Cranky Kong, the elder Kong and original Donkey Kong from the 1981 arcade game, is also part of the new LEGO set. In Donkey Kong Country, he serves as the player’s guide and shares his wisdom and humor throughout the game.
Last but not least, Funky Kong, the cool surfer dude and owner of Funky’s Flights, will also be part of the LEGO set. Funky Kong has appeared in several Donkey Kong games and is known for providing transportation to the other characters.
Pricing and Availability
Although no release date has been announced yet, LEGO has teased fans with a brief clip on Twitter featuring the upcoming DK figures. It’s safe to say that fans are eagerly anticipating the release of these figures and cannot wait to add them to their collections.
LEGO’s latest announcement of the Donkey Kong figures is exciting news for both LEGO and Donkey Kong fans. With the addition of Diddy, Dixie, Cranky, and Funky, the DK crew is now complete in LEGO form. Though it will be much cooler to see actual minifigures or bigfigs of these beloved characters, I’m still pretty sure that LEGO Nintendo fans will love to add these brick-built characters to their collection. Expect more LEGO Donkey Kong reveals in the next few weeks.
