Initially introduced in Japan on May 22, 1980, PAC-MAN quickly became a cultural sensation. For more than four decades, it has captivated audiences around the globe through video games, TV shows, music, and more. Now, thanks to the creative collaboration between the LEGO Group and Bandai Namco, this 80s classic is making a remarkable comeback in the form of the 2,651-piece LEGO Icons PAC-MAN Arcade. Here’s an interesting fact: during the development process, it was discovered that PAC-MAN’s iconic yellow color drew inspiration from the LEGO Group’s signature hue as we know it today.

It’s a playful nod to the gaming world and adds extra fun to the LEGO Icons PAC-MAN Arcade set.

The Design Process Behind the LEGO Icons PAC-MAN Arcade Set

LEGO Designer, Sven Franic, shares some fascinating insights into the meticulous process of creating the LEGO Icons PAC-MAN Arcade set.

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.

4 New LEGO Donkey Kong Sets Added to

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.

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

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.

LEGO Super Mario Donkey Kong Officially Announced!

In case you tuned in to LEGO’s live stream of its upcoming LEGO Super Mario sets yesterday, then you’ll be glad to know that aside from a new expansion set, fans of Nintendo’s iconic gorilla will also have his very first official LEGO set in the form of an upcoming LEGO Super Mario Donkey Kong set!

The reveal was made by host Jack Gardner over at LEGO’s YouTube channel. You can catch a sneak peek of this exciting new set below.

Not so much was mentioned with this set, save from the title card that reads LEGO Super Mario Donkey Kong. But from the looks of it, it seems that this first brick rendition of DK will unlock new features from the Mario, Luigi, and Peach starter packs. It looks like this feature will be activated once these starter packs are mounted or joined together with LEGO Super Mario Donkey Kong. It’s quite unsure yet if LEGO’s Donkey Kong will be part of a larger expansion set, or will be a stand-alone one. We just have to wait and see in the coming months.

From the get-go, this build is not very much different in terms of height as compared to the LEGO Mario figure. The printed tile for his eyes is also spot-on, accurately catching the looks of Nintendo’s legendary gorilla. I would also like to commend the designers here for their decision to actually provide molded hands for DK.

Hopefully will get to see more details about this in the next few weeks. And with more LEGO Super Mario sets to be unveiled in the coming days, I’m still keeping my fingers crossed for actual Mario and Luigi minifigures. It’s certainly a possibility especially now that promotions for Illumination’s The Super Mario Bros. Movie are now in full swing. The film is scheduled for a theatrical release starting April 5, 2023.
