In a delightful fusion of nostalgia and creativity, LEGO is set to transform one of Super Mario’s most notorious adversaries into an endearing desk companion. The once-dreaded Piranha Plant, known for its penchant for chomping on Mario’s adventures, is reborn as a 540-brick masterpiece that will charm the hearts of Mario enthusiasts everywhere. With its adjustable features and clever design, this Piranha Plant is not just a collectible; it’s a work of art in its own right.
Designed with precision and affection by the artisans at LEGO, this Piranha Plant stands at an impressive 9 inches tall, a towering tribute to the iconic creature from the 1983 Nintendo classic. It boasts a movable jaw, an adjustable head, and positionable leaves, all meticulously crafted to capture the essence of this carnivorous flora. As a delightful bonus, the set includes two golden coins that can be playfully dropped into the plant’s pipe, a nod to the surprise trinkets often encountered in the Super Mario universe.
For those who may be daunted by the prospect of assembling a complex LEGO creation, fear not. With a modest brick count of 540 pieces, the Piranha Plant is an accessible project for builders of all skill levels. Step-by-step instructions, both in the box and through the LEGO® Builder app, ensure a smooth and enjoyable building experience, making it an ideal entry point for newcomers to the LEGO world.
But the appeal of this Piranha Plant extends beyond the realm of construction. Standing proudly at over 9 inches in height and measuring 4.5 inches in width with a depth of 6.5 inches, it is the perfect addition to any display unit for Mario enthusiasts and seekers of nostalgic treasures alike. Its resemblance to its virtual counterpart is so uncanny that one could almost believe it was plucked directly from the pixelated landscapes of the video game.
Mark your calendars, for the Super Mario Piranha Plant (71426) set is slated for release on November 6, 2023, with a retail price of $59.99. As this delightful creation takes its place in the world of LEGO, it reminds us that even the most fearsome adversaries can find a place in our hearts, one brick at a time.
