Following the unintended reveal of the LEGO Super Mario Dry Bowser Castle Battle (71423), it looks like LEGO is continuously building on the hype and excitement. Because as it turns out, it seems that LEGO is teasing a LEGO Donkey Kong reveal just in time for Nintendo’s MAR10 Day celebrations.
Shared by LEGO’s social media team via Instagram, LEGO is hinting that we might be seeing our very first LEGO Donkey Kong set just in time for MAR10 Day. Take a look.
Along with a countdown timer, the imposing silhouette DK’s brick-built figure adds to the excitement of the MAR10 celebrations. Though I am excited about this first-ever LEGO Donkey Kong set, I have to say right off the bat that this may not be the usual LEGO 18+ set that adult LEGO collectors are looking forward to. There were confirmations already that there will be no LEGO 18+ sets to be revealed in conjunction with this year’s MAR10 Day celebrations. Furthermore, this brick-built rendition of Nintendo’s iconic video game character is a bit small given the LEGO elements and pieces that were used.
Whatever the case, as an avid Super Mario fan, I’m still excited to see what LEGO has in store for MAR10 Day. It’s just a matter of hours before the show begins over at LEGO’s official YouTube channel, so be sure to keep tabs on this and here on our blog site as well.
Last week, Nintendo’s social media team was quite busy promoting this year’s grandest Super Mario celebration. Included in the announcement is a brief mention of yet another collaboration with LEGO. And this time around, we now have a visual confirmation of what this first collaboration is in the likes of the just recently revealed LEGO Super Mario Dry Bowser Castle Battle (71423)
The LEGO Super Mario Dry Bowser Castle Battle is expected to make its official debut any time soon once MAR10 Day celebrations are in full swing. As a final note, just2good over his YouTube channel also reports of another LEGO Super Mario that will happen alongside the reveal of the Dry Bowser Castle. It is anticipated that this will be our first LEGO Donkey Kong set and it’s exciting to see how LEGO will pull this out.
Be sure to keep in touch here on our blog site for more updates on these upcoming LEGO Super Mario sets.
March 10 is fast approaching, and if you’re an avid LEGO and Nintendo fan, then you’re most probably ready for MAR10 day fun this Friday. Because as it turns out, a LEGO Super Mario reveal may be on its way in conjunction with the most exciting Nintendo Day of the year.
Nintendo has just announced that there are going to be a ton of awesome activities and reveals happening during the much-anticipated MAR10 day. And according to Nintendo’s press release, LEGO is going to drop a special announcement on their YouTube channel on March 10 at 8 am PT. You may find a mention of this anticipated LEGO Super Mario reveal towards the end of Nintendo’s announcement.
For a full list of MAR10 Day activities, including special announcements from Nintendo’s partners at LEGO, First 4 Figures and PDP Promotions, please visit http://mario.nintendo.com.
I can’t help but speculate what LEGO has up its sleeves. Could it be LEGO sets for the upcoming Super Mario Bros. Movie? Or perhaps more expansion sets for the current LEGO Super Mario theme? Rumor has it that it is a larger LEGO Super Mario set that will be released later this year. As of now, the current title of being the largest LEGO Super Mario set is from last year’s The Mighty Bowser (71411).
Whatever it is, I’m sure it’s going to be epic. So be sure to mark your calendars for March 10, 8 am PT. And while you’re at it, why not bookmark our blog site as well? Stay tuned!
LEGO® Super Mario™ fans can take on a big character with this Conkdor’s Noggin Bopper Expansion Set (71414).

In case you missed it, LEGO has already listed the sixth installment of its LEGO Super Mario Series 6 Character Packs – a collection of brick-built figures inspired by the folks over at the Mushroom Kingdom. Since its debut in 2020 as an expansion of its original Adventures with Mario Starter Set (71360), the LEGO Super Mario Character Packs have become a staple of the theme, drawing inspiration from its colorful and wide range of Super Mario Characters.
Retailing for $6 per blind bag, LEGO Super Mario Series 6 (71413) consists of 8 buildable characters to find and collect. Like its predecessors, these buildable characters also feature scannable LEGO pieces that interact with the main LEGO Super Mario figure. This series is scheduled to be available starting January 1, 2023, and in case you haven’t added them to your LEGO wishlist, then now is the best time to do so.
Take a look at these official images and let me know in the comments below which of these 8 brick-built Super Mario characters you’re excited to add to your collection.
Many awards ceremonies follow the standard of holding themselves on an annual basis. This is reasonable considering that trends change year after year, and companies on average roll out different new products annually. But sometimes, there can be so many products worthy of nominations in a year for certain awards. In that case, why not hold more than one ceremony annually? That’s precisely what the Toy of the Year (TOTY) Awards has done this 2022. There was one earlier this year, and a second awards program this month. As expected, LEGO has its own nominations, and won in multiple categories.
According to The Brick Fan, the second 2022 Toy of the Year Awards was held Tuesday, September 20. In this edition, LEGO secured nominations to five toy categories and won every single time. True, this is less than the nominations for the earlier 2022 Awards (that had eight). But who can say anything bad about a nomination sweep? Congratulations to LEGO for their triumph. We can probably count on the winning products to get a sales bump going into the Holiday season. Let’s review them:
In the earlier TOTY Awards 2022, LEGO won these same categories plus Preschool Toy, Specialty Toy and STEAM Toy. We can’t help but wonder if Toy of the Year will make this twice-a-year awarding schedule their new norm. If so, LEGO has twice the opportunities annually to impress the global toy community.
The start of a new month usually means one thing on a LEGO news site. It’s LEGO set launch recap time! We’ve covered a wide selection of sets coming out this August 1 and it’s time to take a look back. You surely won’t be lacking in choices with these:

Through thick and thin, LEGO strives to maintain a regular product release schedule year in and out. And while the best source on set launches would be LEGO themselves, sometimes retailers would jump the gun. These early announcements can contain the most exciting LEGO set notices, which we must wait for until confirmed or debunked. Last February we caught wind of a LEGO set for a mega-franchise from fellow toy giant Hasbro. Who could imagine a LEGO-Hasbro collaboration to make LEGO Transformers? That rumor, plus other LEGO items, just got their advance product reveal courtesy of an online German retailer.
The Brick Fan tells us that some upcoming LEGO sets now grace the online listings of Wagner’s in Germany. This listing includes the aforementioned long-rumored LEGO Optimus Prime (10302), from Hasbro’s “Transformers.” Not your thing? How about tie-ins for James Cameron’s “Avatar” particularly the sequel arriving late this year? We also have early mentions of the expected 2022 Advent Calendars, if you collect those. Here’s a rundown of what to expect from several major LEGO themes all through the year.

It was no surprise whatsoever that, upon March 10 aka Mar10 Day hitting LEGO.com Thursday, we got our set reveals. The new LEGO Super Mario sets were spoiled by a teasing social media post on LEGO’s Instagram. That may have been removed shortly after, but now collectors could see it coming. And as confirmed by The Brick Fan, this new wave of LEGO Super Mario sets will introduce a new character. Mario and Luigi may have been saving Princess Peach of Mushroom Kingdom numerous times now. But Peach can take care of herself too, as her interactive brick-built figure demonstrates.
Like with the Mario Bros, Princess Peach gets introduced to LEGO via her own Starter Course set (71403). From there this LEGO Super Mario product batch boasts several new expansion courses. And with Peach around, that includes her previously-mentioned Palace (71408). In fact, it would be easier to just enumerate:
