LEGO Super Mario From Game To Brick

One of the most interesting aspects of the LEGO® Super Mario sets is the various characters dotted about them.

All The Adult-focused LEGO Set So Far

“You know the rules, this isn’t a toy, no actually it’s a highly sophisticated inter-locking brick system” Yes, we all know that LEGO® is a toy, but there is a vast and ever-increasing adult community who adore those little plastic bricks, despite what the box says; after all “that’s a suggestion. They have to put that on there” The LEGO Group realised many years ago that adults loved LEGO...
