Get Ready to Swing With These 4 New LEGO Donkey Kong Sets!

In case you missed it, LEGO has officially announced the release of a wave of new LEGO Donkey Kong sets that further expand its highly successful LEGO Super Mario theme. Following a teaser from several days ago, LEGO has finally listed four new LEGO Donkey Kong sets slated to arrive on shelves in August. The exciting reveal marks the beginning of a new wave of inspiration from Nintendo franchises.

A Brief History of Donkey Kong

For the younger generation who may be unfamiliar with the iconic video game character, Donkey Kong (DK) was first introduced in 1981. He first debuted as the dotting villain in an arcade game where he is pitted against the pixelized hero Mario. And in 1994, DK saw a revival when gaming developer Rare released Donkey Kong Country. It is a side-scrolling platformer game that boasted pre-rendered 3D graphics that were quite ahead of its time. Aside from the inclusion of Donkey Kong’s flashy red tie, he is now viewed as the hero of the game paving the way for him to become a Nintendo mainstay.

Now, LEGO has introduced another milestone to Donkey Kong and his clan, as they will now receive their official LEGO versions. Let’s take a closer look at what we can expect from these new LEGO Donkey Kong sets before they arrive in August.

The 18+ set LEGO Disney Villain Icons (43227) and the 6+ set LEGO Disney Duos (43226) both offer something unique and exciting for Disney fans and LEGO enthusiasts alike. Let’s check these out.

LEGO Disney Villain Icons (43227)

The LEGO Disney Villain Icons sets focus on some of the most iconic villains from classic Disney films. And for Disney LEGO fans, this set offers an opportunity to collect the first LEGO minifigure versions of these memorable characters We have never-before-seen minifigure renditions of Gaston from Beauty and the Beast, the Evil Queen in her disguised form from Snow White, and our first-ever minifig version of Jafar Genie from Aladdin. There’s also a newer version of Maleficent as seen in Sleeping Beauty.

The set also features a bunch of Disney memorabilia that is easily recognizable for avid Disney fans. We have a brick-built version of the poisoned apple from Snow White, and several storybooks that bear the title of the other films mentioned. It’s also nice that the typical LEGO humor is also seen in this set with the addition of a LEGO VHS tape bearing the title of the 1989 classic animated film The Little Mermaid. There’s also a reference to the Red Queen from Alice in Wonderland in the likes of an actual brick card. Finally, it also includes Captain Hook’s brick-built pocket watch from the original 1953 film Peter Pan.

While it’s quite a challenge to narrow down all the ideal LEGO Disney Villain to include in this set, I’m personally happy with this selection. This set, villainous as it may seem, adds a nice touch and ties in well with the LEGO Disney theme.

LEGO Disney Duos (43226)

Like its villainous LEGO Disney Villain Icons counterpart, the LEGO Disney Duos set showcases some famous side character companions from various Disney films, from the older classics to newer releases.

The buildable figures include Pua and Hei Hei from Moana, Squirt and Nemo from Finding Nemo, Meeko and Percy from Pocahontas, and the classic pair of Lumiere and Cogsworth from Beauty and the Beast.

This set is perfect for younger children, aged 6+, who are just starting to get into LEGO and Disney. The buildable figures are not just loaded with fun play features, but they also make great collectibles and display for LEGO Disney fans of all ages.

Pricing and Release Date

While both sets are yet to make their official appearance at, Bricks Megastore marks both the LEGO Disney Villain Icons and LEGO Disney Duos sets for a July 1st release date. The latter is expected to retail for 209.99 AUD (or roughly 140 USD) and the former for 72.99 AUD (48 to 50 USD) as seen from the Australian LEGO certified store website. There’s also an option to pre-order these if you live anywhere near their stores.

And since this is already listed at LEGO partner stores, then I guess it’s just a matter of days before we see these sets make their official debut at LEGO’s official online shopping portal.

Overall, the LEGO Disney Villain Icons and Disney Duos sets are perfect for fans of Disney and LEGO alike. They offer unique and exciting collectibles that are sure to impress and delight forever Disney fans.

The LEGO online shop usually has the most important promotions for LEGO Star Wars fans during this event, even if the discounts are traditionally the lowest there. This is due to the often attractive new releases in the past, but above all, to the free gifts which can be yours for certain qualifying purchases. And these freebies can become quite expensive on reselling sites as we’ve seen in the past.

For this year, there will be a lot of LEGO Star Wars May the 4th free gifts that will be up for grabs or while supplies last.

More LEGO Donkey Kong Figures and Characters Revealed

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

Diddy Kong

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.

Dixie Kong

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

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.

Funky Kong

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.

From the Leaking Faucet: LEGO Icons Pac-Man Arcade Machine (10315) Coming in June!

A purported image of the rumored LEGO Icons Pac-Man Arcade Machine set has been making rounds online, and it’s creating plenty of buzz among the LEGO fan community. This image, posted by reliable LEGO insider @Falconbricks via Twitter shows a miniaturized version of the iconic arcade machine. While the images are a bit blurry, it shows a classic cabinet arcade with three mini-builds of Pac-Man, Blinky, and Clyde.

The LEGO Icons Pac-Man Arcade Machine set is said to be part of the LEGO Icons portfolio and is rumored to clock in at 2,651 pieces with a price tag of $269.99 making it another pricier LEGO set that appeals to adult LEGO fans. It’s unclear whether this brick-built arcade machine will be functional, but with that price point, it is certainly expected to come up with plenty of play features and interactivity.

It is interesting to note that the price point of the LEGO Icons Pac-Man Arcade Machine is somewhat within the same price range as another brick-built classic, the LEGO Icons Atari 2600 (10306) from last year.  I can just imagine how good it will look to see these classic gaming superstars displayed alongside one another.

LEGO Icons Pac-Man Arcade Machine Release Date and Availability

This brick-built classic set is expected to be officially released on June 1, 2023. And though LEGO is yet to make an official announcement, we can be sure that an official reveal may happen anytime within the next couple of weeks. We’ll see if LEGO will also offer this as a pre-order deal which the company is fond of doing lately.

LEGO Icons Pac-Man Arcade Machine and Other Video Games Inspired Builds

LEGO has been making sets based on popular video games for a while now. Just last week, they announced a series of LEGO Sonic the Hedgehog sets in collaboration with Sega. And as of to date, LEGO video gamers can also expand their collection with Nintendo-inspired sets such as the highly interactive Super Mario series, and the brick-built Nintendo Entertainment System.

The Pac-Man Arcade Machine set is an exciting addition to Lego’s video game-themed sets. With its impressive piece count and interactive features, it is going to be a sure hit among LEGO and video gaming fans. Stay tuned for more updates as LEGO makes an official announcement about this set anytime soon.
