Finally, after performing for the first time in August, the Lego version of Luigi gets its own sets. But poor clumsy Luigi, it looks like Nintendo and Lego will torture him, because the new sets are all based on Luigi’s mansion. They do not know that Luigi (and his Lego variant) are afraid of ghosts! Fortunately, Professor E. Gadd is here to help Luigi in his time of need. Well, he will be when these new sets come out in January.
Announced yesterday, just in time for Halloween, Lego brings three new ones Luigi’s mansiontheme sets for Mario and the Luigi Lego series of play sets. Like the games, these spooky courses have plenty of ghosts that Luigi can avoid or catch. Luigi even gets his Poltergust vacuum backpack as a Lego accessory.
The cheapest set is the Lab and Poltergust Expansion Set, which costs $ 39.99 and comes with the Poltergust itself, which Luigi can use to capture the Gold Ghost and collect a coin reward. Luigi can also talk to E. Gadd, who comes with the set and can offer potions to players.
The other box, which costs a little more at $ 59.99, is the Entryway Expansion Set. This play set gives Luigi access to the mansion. Once the players have entered, the players must defeat Bogmire. Or they can just find a bone and give it to Polterpup, who I suppose is a good boy and deserves the treat.
The third and final set is also the most expensive. The Haunt-and-Seek Expansion Kit costs $ 80 ($ 106). With this play set, players can create their own haunted lanes that Luigi can explore. Included are bricks and pieces needed to create rotating hallways, ghost battles and quests to collect the gems.
You can also combine all three sets into one massive and much haunted mansion play set that Luigi – or his Lego brother Mario – can receive either alone or together.

Annoyingly, none of these options (like previous expansions in this theme) include Mario or Luigi. So you will have to pick up a starter kit including one of the famous plumbers before you can fully enjoy any of the new extensions.
All three of these new Luigi’s mansion sets will be released separately on January 1, 2022 and can be found anywhere you normally buy Lego. If you don’t care about these play sets and just want some classic Nintendo nostalgia via Lego bricks, you can check out the great A $ 289.99 Mario 64 Question Block Set Lego released in September, though only available at Lego.com or in Lego stores at the moment.
