Why Propeller and Builder Mario instead of Hammer and Tanooki Mario?!?

Propeller and builder are more modern creations that the younger generation(s) would recognize more being from New Super Mario Bros and Super Mario Maker.

Considering that SMM2 already has those powerups, I don't think its a good idea to ignore the classic powerups in favor of the newer ones since the younger generation would most likely be aware of these powerups. I mean at this point, fans already know the powerups and the games are already easily accessible(except a few of them of course).

Besides, they both suck. Builder Mario is essentially Wrecking Mario while Propeller is worse than Raccoon and Cape Mario.

It's possible they would have been more difficult to pull off in Lego form as well. Them being easily accessible doesn't mean necessarily they are the best choice. The have base Mario and the Fire Flower, and then very popular alternates with Propeller, Cat, and Builder. Wrecking Mario hasn't been around for AGES. It only makes sense to include Builder Mario. I trust that Nintendo and Lego worked together to determine the cross-section of popular, able to be done well in Lego form, etc.

I'll disagree on them sucking. I enjoy them personally.
