Anyone left as disappointed by Nintendo’s first LEGO offerings as I was—I wanted huge Mushroom Kingdom/Hyrule playsets!—can find solace in the fact that, since this is LEGO we’re talking about, you can just make and remake whatever the hell you want.


So @crownavy took the weird blocky Mario figure that’s shipping with the first official sets and...gave him a Mario mech suit to climb in and out of.

Great, now I don’t only want more Nintendo mechs, I want a Mario game based on it where instead of breaking blocks to wear suits you climb into giant mech versions of Mushroom Kingdom inhabitants and wreck shit.

Via Go Nintendo.

Full-on, standard LEGO sets would be dope.
...I have not used the word “dope,” in that context, in decades. I sincerely apologize.
