WOW, Nintendo and Lego are going all in this year :) If you look here, it is like the cavern of Alibaba, this page alone is one of the best thing on the Internet right now: https://www.lego.com/en-ca/search?q=mario Already pre-ordered the starter kit but I cannot wait to receive it and then get all of the expansion. Take my MONEY!

A bit of plastic for a higher price than a Switch Lite. I'll never understand why these lego kits cost so much.

It's definintely expensive, but the costs are likely not in the plastic, but in the artists involved in the project, the manufacturing process to produce the unique parts for this design, and the rights to use the Mario property. Of course there's shipping and marketing and everything else, but of course at the end of the day they make a pretty penny.

If the NES was functional as well it would be great.

I don't get the enjoyment in these. I mean, you build it and then go through the mechanic once and that's it. And pay more than 200 for the privilege. ??? Even kids will get bored with this after a couple of runs.

$230? WTF? You could just buy an actual NES for cheaper than that :P
