Luigi’s Mansion LEGO Sets Are Officially On The Way

LEGO and gaming have had a wonderful history. Starting with the classic CD-ROM titles for your old brick computer, to LEGO Star Wars, and all the way to new original games like LEGO Worlds, the building bricks and video games have always gone hand-in-hand - and no, it’s not just because of Minecraft’s popularity.

Despite this more than healthy dollop of nostalgia, the LEGO collaboration with Super Mario was hard to predict. Some new sets where fans can build their own Mario levels for the titular plumber (in Lego/LED screen form) to hop through were not something on gamers’ 2021 bingo cards.

Still, the sets have gone down a treat. So much so, a new set featuring the plumber’s timid brother is set to release soon. Better yet, it's a well-timed Luigi's Mansion collaboration.

Luigi’s Mansion LEGO Sets Revealed

The latest Super Mario LEGO set has been revealed, this time for Luigi and the creepy locales of the Luigi’s Mansion series of games. The new sets feature Professor E. Gadd’s laboratory, Entryway, and "Haunt-and-Seek".

The sets are slated for launch on New Year’s Day 2022, so they’ll be coming in with the holidays (though the just-passed Halloween is probably more fitting).

"Snap on your poltergust and get ready for some fun!" says the trailer’s description. "Defeat ghostly enemies, solve puzzles, and discover new ways to play. Join the adventure with LEGO Super Mario Luigi’s Mansion Sets coming soon!" Don’t mind if we do.

It sounds great, but there’s one detail about these sets that have rubbed fans the wrong way. Luigi himself doesn't even come with the set. Maybe he's been turned into a ghost? Either way, it seems odd to have a Luigi-themed set without featuring him at all.

The Luigi’s Mansion Sets Don’t Come With Luigi

Players have been irritated by the fact that Luigi isn’t actually present in any of these sets that feature him by name. The sets instead come with the Poltergust, King Boo, and Professor E. Gadd, but it doesn’t quite make up for the lack of the titular character. You’re going to have to pick up a completely different set for the full Luigi experience. Sigh.

It’s a shame you won’t get to be Luigi straight out of the box, but at least there’s a new way to bring Super Mario to life in LEGO form. Maybe use the Mario from your main kit in the new Luigi’s Mansion set - we know it’s not the same, but it’ll do. If not, you could always stretch him a bit and then paint him green.
