LEGO Super Mario Princess Peach’s Castle (71408) Teased Ahead of Mar10 Day Event

By now, we can perhaps safely say that LEGO Super Mario isn’t just a one-off gimmicky product line. It may well be a new long-running LEGO theme all on its own, with regular set launches year after year. Having electronic buildable characters from the Nintendo videogame franchise electronically interacting with the sets is sheer genius. Every new set released can potentially be a new interactive playground for the LEGO Mario Bros. And if you think the sets launched last January were all there is for 2022, think again. In fact, LEGO Super Mario is soon expanding its playable brick-built characters.

As told by Brickset, LEGO has spoiled us with its next big Super Mario tie-in: Princess Peach’s Castle (71408). A now-deleted post on LEGO’s Instagram inadvertently revealed this bombshell. But we’re sure to get the low-down very soon. That’s because Thursday, March 10, is being celebrated as Mar10 Day. (Mar-10, get it?) The event already graces the front page of LEGO Shop online. No word on Peach’s Castle. Still, other LEGO Super Mario promotions are taking center stage. The upcoming set 71408 features a Castle build inspired by “Super Mario 64.” But it features cross-franchise characters like Bowser Koopa, Ludwig Koopa, Toadette and more.

Mar10 Day Details

Meanwhile, Mar10 Day is bringing back some cool stuff according to The Brick Fan. During March 10-24, LEGO Super Mario purchases worth $40 will again get the Fuzzy & Mushroom Platform (30389) polybag. This GWP already ran in August 2021 so apparently LEGO still has stock left. In-store shoppers can bring their LEGO Mario/Luigi figures to the nearest LEGO Store to receive the Super Mario coin. Finally, LEGO is offering three bundles of past Super Mario sets. Buying them will net not just VIP points (if member) but also Nintendo Platinum Points.

These set bundles can only be gotten on LEGO.com, so grab them if you haven’t already.

New Disney Princess Bundle (5007204) Available at LEGO.com UK

Want to get a head start on collecting LEGO sets but can’t be bothered to hunt them down individually? You could always keep an eye out for the bundles. LEGO and its retail partners tend to release them every once in a while. Just last month, Walmart gave us three LEGO Marvel “Mech Armor” sets in an affordable 3-in-1 Pack (66671). The arctic base LEGO City sets from a few years ago also got bundled courtesy of LEGO.com UK in 2018. It’s their corner of the LEGO online store that brings us this new collection of sets from LEGO Disney.

Brick Fanatics tells us that LEGO.com for UK now lists a Disney Princess Ultimate Celebration Bundle (5007204). Sounds cool for a Disney fan, huh? Then again, the bundle consists of just one LEGO Disney Princess set. The other sets are from the LEGO DOTS theme, plus two Disney key-chains and two early 2021 VIP rewards. Consider this list of contents:

All these could be had from LEGO UK at £74.99/€84.99. Adding the individual prices of the above gives us the total £92.93/€103.93, so the bundle price is a good deal. The LEGO Disney Princess Ultimate Celebration Bundle (5007204) is available now, ahead of Black Friday. If you’re in the UK and fancy these items then it’s best to get the bundle now. Getting two VIP rewards is a nice bonus.
