Mario has battled a vast number of critters and creatures over the last 35 years. With each new Mario adventure, new enemies pop up across the Mushroom Kingdom.

71374: Nintendo Entertainment System LEGO Set Review

This year marks the 35th anniversary of a games console which changed the face of gaming forever.

71369: Bowser’s Castle Boss Battle Set Review

For every good guy, there is an equally bad one somewhere nearby. For as long as Mario has been jumping around the Mushroom Kingdom, Bowser hasn’t been far behind or should that be ahead.
