The LEGO Company has released a teaser video giving fans a glimpse of some of the new figures headed to its ever-expanding LEGO Super Mario toy line — The five new figures, which were revealed on the company’s Twitter, represent the key members of the much-loved Donkey Kong family.

In the video, we can see the unmistakable designs of Cranky Kong, Diddy Kong, and Daisy Kong, as well as the main man, Donkey Kong himself. And because no game is complete without a Funky Kong mode, then that totally tubular ape is also putting in an appearance, wraparound shades and all. While the characters’ features are yet to be detailed, we can assume that these battery-operated LCD figures will interact with the LEGO Super Mario playsets, much like previous releases Mario, Luigi, and Daisy.

Something appears to be going on with Diddy’s tail… not quite sure what that’s about.

The LEGO Super Mario series first launched in 2020, featuring the iconic Nintendo mascot and several basic playsets. Since then, the line has greatly expanded, with playsets based on Bowser’s Castle, Luigi’s Mansion, Bowser’s Airship, and even The Big Man himself. These sets feature augmented play action, with sound effects and other neat tricks playing out as the figures are placed on and around the homemade courses. The Donkey Kong family of figures will undoubtedly add new options for set growth, as young LEGO and Super Mario fans build a Mushroom Kingdom of their very own.

The LEGO Super Mario series is available now at toy stockists.
