It’s time to block out some free time in the calendar as we look as the best Lego Nintendo sets of 2022!
That’s right folks; we’ve got 10 exciting creations for you to feast your eyes on, from classic Nintendo creations through to fan-made projects just begging for a chance to be in the spotlight.
That’s right, we’ve also got some entries from the Lego Ideas page, showcasing some of the up and coming projects that could be in your toy box before the year is out!
So, without further ado, let’s check out the best LEGO Nintendo sets of all time and get our build on…
… just don’t walk around bare foot!
It would be rude not to start with the epic Super Mario 64 Question Block, wouldn’t it?
Not only is this one of then most surprising best Lego Nintendo sets in our list, but it’s also one of the coolest when in both play and ornamental modes.
Store it on a shelf as a question block and people would be none the wiser. Then, when you’ve discovered whether you can trust them or not, blow their minds by pulling out four levels from one of Mazza’s most iconic games.
Move Super Mario 64 themed pieces around Peach’s Castle, Bob-omb Battlefield, Cool, Cool Mountain, and Lethal Lava Land, reenacting some of the greatest scenes from N64 history.
Ok, so it turns out that there’s another Lego set that is the coolest of all time, and it needs our help to turn it into a reality – the Link BOTW Lego Set
As I said in the intro to this article, The Lego Ideas page is a hub where budding brick-loving creators can pitch their own creations. This BOTW Link Bionic-Style figure from Brixter is a stunning creation that captures our favourite Hylian Hero in a perfect likeness.
Check out how real Link’s hair looks even in block form too! He has so many movable parts, including his toes!
The set comes with a rock including Silent Princess flowers, Sheikah Slate, Bow & Arrow, Master Sword and Sheath.
This set is over halfway to reaching the 10,000 supporters it needs for Lego to consider making it. Let’s help it on its way!
Of course, we all know that the Mario Starter set is out there for blockheads to collect, but if we’re talking about the best Lego Nintendo sets of 2022, then we need to look to the epic expansion kits for this pack, namely this LEGO Super Mario Bowser’s Castle Boss Battle Expansion Set.
Bowser’s Castle is one of the best Mario toys ever made – it won Toy of the Year in 2021 for crying out loud!
From the little lava minion all the way through to King Koopa himself, this set is fantastic, with rumbling areas, cameos from Dry Bones and Boo, and lots of interactive areas.
How many pieces is this thing packing? 1010!! That’s a lot of brick for your buck!
Let’s continue expansion fever with Super Mario King Boo and The Haunted Yard, spicing up your Lego Mario world with some ghoulish vibes.
Stomp on bats and goombas, creep through gates, contend with webs, and get up close and personal with King Boo himself.
Obviously this set is only as exciting as your imagination – if you can create some great scenarios for Mario to delve into, then you’ll have hours of fun with this bad boy.
Why not twin it with the Luigi’s Mansion set and create a spooktacular fest. Make Halloween every day of the year!
Next up on out list of the best Lego Nintendo sets is this Lego Nintendo Entertainment System!
Yes, this perfectly recreated Lego set boasts a miniature NES along with controller, cartridge and TV.
But that’s not where the fun ends…
Turn a knob on the TV and make Mario move along a scrolling path as though you were actually playing the game.
This thing has so many 80s gaming vibes crammed into it. it melts my brain every time I use it!
Boy meets girl meets Wolfgang in this Animal Crossing Lego set, our second entry from the Lego Ideas page!
Once again, this set is picking up some serious interest with Nintendo fans all over the globe, and with good reason.
Perfectly capturing the feel of this iconic game. Pick up axes, pick flowers and apples, go fishing, sleep in your tent, and have a whale of a time!
Island life never looked so good!
Listen, I know you came here to look for the best Lego Nintendo sets to pair with your Mario Starter set… so that’s why I’ve got the Super Mario Chain Chomp Jungle Encounter Expansion set for you!
How does thwarting a Chain Chomp and stealing coins for Bramball sound?
Don’t step on the poison swamp or else Mario will have more to say to you than ‘Mamma Mia’.
At 160 pieces, this isn’t exactly a big course and won’t take long to build. Still alongside Bowser’s Castle and the set at Number 8, it creates a nice little obstacle course between some of the bigger playable areas.
I don’t need to know anything else about this Nintendo LEGO Super Mario Whomps Lava Trouble set apart from the fact that it has a Thwomp figurine in it. This guy was my favourite Super Mario baddy back in the day; Thwomp’s Fortress ruled!
This set is the only one with a POW block in it too, named a P block because it would be hard to fit Pow onto it it’s so small.
Delve into hot water (or lava in this case) as you take on a Lava bubbles you move between platforms and any other gnarly enemies that you want to add into the equation.
The final entry from The Lego Ideas page is so wondrous that you won’t believe your eyes. Rather than just concentrating on one part of Kirby’s Dream Land Kingdom, this set marks out pivotal moments throughout the original Kirby game for the DMG.
We’re talking pitting Kirby against Whispy Woods, sending Meta Knight into the depths of Castle Dedede, and battles between all your favourite characters including Waddle Doo, Gooey, and Kracko.
If you’ve never played Kirby, then those names won’t mean anything!
The attention to detail in this set is second to none. Plus, with Kirby’s copy ability and 10 different coloured Kirbys to choose from, there’s plenty of fun to be had with you and all your friends!
The final entry on our list of the best Lego Nintendo sets is Super Mario Toad’s Treasure Hunt Expansion Set.
If you like your Lego sets with a touch of treasure hunting, then you’ll be all over this expansion pack.
Toad has always been a but of a fun-gi that doesn’t get mush-room to shine in Mario’s shadow, but this set lets you delve into his world while finding treasure, battling Cheep-Cheeps, and hanging out with Toad and Toadette.
Grab digital coins, stomp Goombas, and stop for a spot of tea by your favourite tree before heading on to Bowser’s Castle.
It’s a hard life, but someone’s gotta do it!
