Nabbit's time to shine!
LEGO CON 2022 was held earlier today, and the entire show was streamed live via YouTube. For Nintendo fans, the most important part of the show came at around the 1 hour and 53 minute mark, when the next set of characters was announced for the LEGO Super Mario series.
The full list of characters is as follows: Nabbit, Purple Toad, Hammer Bro, Waddlewing, Toady, Baby Yoshi, Red Yoshi and Blue Shy Guy. See below for the official description.
Kids can take their LEGO Super Mario adventures to another level with collectible toy Character Packs – Series 5 (71410). Each pack contains a mystery buildable character with an Action Tag, plus a small build to use as a display stand or to enhance level play. There are 8 LEGO Super Mario characters to collect: Nabbit, plus a Purple Toad, Hammer Bro, Waddlewing, Toady, Baby Yoshi, Red Yoshi and Blue Shy Guy. Each is designed to be used with a Starter Course set (71360, 71387 or 71403), which is required for interactive play.
Each of these characters will be available to buy individually on August 5th, 2022 for $5.99 each.
