After teasers teased earlier this week, we’ve now got our first proper look at four new Donkey Kong LEGO adventure playsets that bring another expansion to the LEGO Super Mario collection.
Each set features one or two popular members of the Kong family, and contains various interactive components to use with other characters. The upcoming set consists of Donkey Kong’s Tree House Expansion Set (£57.99 / $59.99), Diddy Kong’s Mine Cart Ride Expansion Set (£94.99 / $109.99), Dixie Kong’s Jungle Jam Expansion Set (£20.99 / $26.99) and the Rambi Set. the Rhino Younger Expansion Set (£8.99 / AU$10.99), which will all launch August 1st.
