Lego's Super Mario 64 set includes teeny tiny versions of classic Nintendo levels

The Lego Super Mario 64 ? Block folds levels out of the block, and it might be the coolest thing on the planet

Super Mario 64 turns 25 this year (sorry, fellow olds), and to celebrate Lego is releasing what might be the single most desirable set in its history, at least in the eyes of this N64-obsessed former kid.

It's a 2,064-piece set that not only builds the iconic question mark block, but also tiny versions of some of the game's most famous levels, including Peach’s Castle, Bob-omb Battlefield, Cool Cool Mountain and Lethal Lava Trouble.

Even cooler is that the set is designed to just look like the block when you want it to, but the sides open and the top folds around to reveal all of the miniature levels.

Within the levels, you'll find tiny versions of Mario, Peach, King Bob-omb, Penguin baby and mama, the chain chomp, Lakitu and his camera… it's just packed with details for gaming fans.

Here's a gallery of images so you can explore it in all its glory.

This is clearly going to be one of the best Lego sets for gifting this Christmas – I expect it will sell a ton, which may mean Lego has trouble keeping it in stock, so don't hesitate to grab it when you see it available.

It's also got a bonus built into it for those who've got the regular Lego Super Mario sets, though this is designed just to be a showpiece rather than any kind of playtime add-on for that.

It goes on-sale on October 1 2021 from Lego exclusively, and the price is set to be £159/$169. Which I think is basically what Mario 64 cost when released, if you adjust for inflation.
