LEGO Mario without the LEGO!

Perhaps you like the idea of LEGO Super Mario, but don't want to use LEGO bricks to build out a course. What other options do you have then? Well, in the video above, you can see that someone has reverse engineered the LEGO Super Mario barcodes that LEGO Super Mario interacts with in order to build a custom playset!

LEGO Super Mario fans makes a custom Blooper boss

Imagination at work

Made a Blooper boss for LEGO Mario from r/lego

LEGO Super Mario is all about finding your own ways to have fun. Take the LEGO blocks you already have and use them to create new levels for Mario to explore, or in this case, a new boss for him to battle!

BradBGG on Reddit decided to take some of the LEGO bricks he has in his collection to make a custom Blooper boss battle for LEGO Super Mario to take on. You even win yourself a goody if you defeat the boss!

Thanks to Bob for the heads up!

RUMOR: Start screen for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga leaks

A disturbance in the force

The gang behind LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has been unusually tight-lipped about the project since its original reveal. While we know the game is slated for this year, we haven't really seen anything new about it in months. It appears that might be changing, as a rumored bit of leaked content has made its way onto the web.

The above image is supposedly the start screen for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. It shows off just some of the over 500 characters that will be included in the game. The screen is just a rumor for now, but it certainly looks like the real deal. If it is real, hopefully this means we'll be getting some new details on the game soon.

Nintendo dropped LEGO Super Mario 6,000 times to ensure quality

See you next time!

LEGO and Nintendo finally teaming up on projects is a dream come true for Nintendo fans. The companies have paired to create some truly unique products, especially with LEGO Super Mario. It's a project that took over 4 years, and Nintendo really put LEGO through the ringer to make sure everything was in tip-top shape.

In an interview with Nintendo Life, LEGO's Jonathan Bennink talked about the lengths Nintendo went to make sure LEGO Super Mario wasn't going to fall apart the second kids got their hands on it.

We never had a partner challenge us in safety and quality, and this was the first time! Every time we shipped a Mario to them, they dropped it 6,000 times. That is Nintendo quality – that was new for us!
