Lego has unveiled four Donkey Kong sets for its Lego Super Mario range this August.
TODAY revealed earlier this week that Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Dixie Kong, Cranky Kong and Funky Kong are all getting the Lego treatment, with Lego now confirming those three characters will be getting their own sets .
First up is the £57.99/€64.99/$59.99 USD Donkey Kong’s Tree House Expansion Set, which weighs in at 555 pieces. Along with the LEGO DK figure and his iconic Homestead, this set features palm trees, a buildable TV, radio and secret compartment, as well as a whimsical Kong figure.
In terms of interaction with other Lego Super Mario range sets, Lego Mario, Luigi and Peach can all ride Donkey Kong and feed him bananas. It’s also possible to take a nap in a hammock, play the conga drum, or go on Cranky Kong to earn digital coins.
Diddy Kong’s Mine Cart Ride expansion set is slightly more detailed at 1,157 pieces, and is priced accordingly at £94.99/€104.99/$109.99. It includes four figures – Diddy Kong, Funky Kong, a Snuggles, and Mole Miner – and comes with jungle scenes, and airplanes, mine track pieces, and a ride-on car for Lego Mario and friends.
As for interactions, there is an airplane shop where players can buy balloons and get special reactions by ‘flying’ the plane, as well as an ‘explosive’ rock that reveals bananas, a ‘broken’ track section to fix, a flippable snuggles, and a mole miner to battle.
Next up is the 174 piece Dixie Kong’s Jungle Jam Expansion Set, which costs £20.99/€26.99/$26.99. It features a buildable stage – complete with rotating pieces and musical sounds when used with Lego Mario, Luigi, or Peach – as well as jungle scenes, instruments, and musical instruments including guitars, amplifiers, microphones, and bongos.
