Lego Super Mario Adventures with Luigi Starter Course
Long considered sad by Mario-Sack younger brother, Luigi slowly rose through the fan favorite ranks thanks to Nintendo’s Luigi year in 2013 and his own games with the Luigi’s mansion series. If you needed more proof as Luigi’s star was on the rise, Lego revealed a new version of its Lego Super Mario starter course with the Green Plumber leading the charge. This is available for pre-order now for $ 60 with delivery scheduled for August 1 and includes new challenges like a seesaw and villains like Boom Boom and a Bone Goomba. It also comes with a new Pink Yoshi figure as well as new in-game sound effects not available with Mario.
Medicom Mafex The Mandalorian IG-11 and Grogu
We could be way beyond IG-11’s heroic sacrifice in the season one finale of The Mandalorian, but Medicom pays homage to the assassin droid turned very aggressive nanny with his latest Mafex figure. Standing over 7 inches tall, the IG-11 comes complete with two blasters for commandoing, a full serving tray with drinks, and even an interchangeable chest to display its self-destruct device. But his best accessory is, of course, the little Grogu himself, stowed away in his saddlebag to be hoisted around the IG-11’s chest. IG is slated for release in Japan in January of next year, for around $ 99. [Medicom]

Let’s not pretend it’s going to grab anyone’s attention for more than a few minutes, but for $ 15 who’s complaining?

Hasbro Monopoly: Jurassic Park Edition Board game
Hasbro could have simply reissued the original version of Monopoly with its updated play money to include the iconic Jurassic Park T-rex silhouette and we would have lined up. to buy it, but Monopoly: Jurassic Park Edition goes much further with the theme. In addition to rexbucks, the game allows players to collect iconic properties around Isla Nublar and try to build fences to protect them, because while the standard tokens in the game have been replaced with characters from the movie, there is also an additional T-rex token that tramples the board, causing damage and costing players money. The $ 30 game even includes the jurassic park front gate which, when activated play the movie theme song or a dinosaur roar, letting players know how much money they can collect. Life finds a payday.
