Lego hinted that it had more Nintendo sets on the way, and now it has finally let the Kong out of the cage. Both companies announced that there are four Donkey Kong Lego sets releasing on August 1.
All of the Donkey Kong Lego sets have different price points. The $10.99 Rambi the Rhino Expansion Set just comes with the titular rhinoceros, a couple rocks, and a banana. The Dixie Kong’s Jungle Jam Expansion Set is $26.99 and includes Dixie Kong and a stage. The $59.99 Donkey Kong’s Tree House Expansion Set has the main Kong himself, Cranky Kong, and a hut. The most expensive one, the $109.99 Diddy Kong’s Mine Cart Ride Expansion Set, comes with Funky Kong, Diddy Kong, an airplane, a mine cart, and a whole mine cart track.
August 1 marks the release of the aforementioned Bower-focused Mario set, too. These all work together with the previous Mario sets, hence the “Expansion Set” that is one the end of each. Coincidentally, August 1 is also when the recently revealed Sonic the Hedgehog sets are coming out.
