LEGO has revealed a bunch of new smaller expansion packs for its upcoming LEGO Super Mario line! If you somehow missed it, LEGO and Nintendo are collaborating on an interactive product line featuring everyone's favorite digital plumber. In addition to a starter course and some larger expansions, LEGO has officially announced a variety of "Power-Up Packs" that will let LEGO Mario slip into new clothes, complete with all-new features and skills.
More specifically, LEGO has revealed the Fire Mario Power-Up Pack, Propeller Mario Power-Up Pack, Cat Mario Power-Up Pack, and Builder Mario Power-Up Pack. These add a new attack, the ability to "fly" to earn coins, climb and earn coins, and stomp to earn coins, respectively. If you're at all familiar with the various Mario video games, the various suits should make a decent amount of sense. These packs do not themselves come with a LEGO Mario. You can check them out in action below:
