Building a bridge to your heart
What day is it this Friday? I’ll tell you what it is, it’s MAR10 Day, dagnabbit, and The LEGO Company is preparing to show off something new and special in order to celebrate Nintendo’s most famous and perhaps most beloved character (after Luigi).
On Friday, the toymaker will be holding a special “Lego Super Mario YouTube Premiere” live stream, offering updates on its lovely LEGO Super Mario range and teasing “exclusive content and a big reveal”. The action kicks off on the official LEGO YouTube channel at 00:80 PT / 11:00 ET / 17:00 GMT and will be hosted by Jack Gardner — who I am assuming is not the former 1950 British Empire boxing champion.
Final preparations are underway for our LEGO Super Mario™ YouTube Premiere… Tune in on March 10 for big updates… and even bigger reveals…!#MAR10Day pic.twitter.com/jVOZaArUjo

The LEGO Super Mario range, which launched in the summer of 2020, has consisted of multiple sets and showpieces featuring the characters and worlds of Nintendo’s best-selling series. For younger players, there are sets that allow for the building of “courses” to be played by smart interactive Maxifigures of Mario, Luigi, and Princess Peach. For the more dedicated collector, LEGO has released prestige (and pricey) kits of the Super Mario 64 Question Block, Bowser’s Airship, and The Mighty Bowser himself.
We’ll be sure to pick you abreast, and abrick, of all the news from the LEGO stream once it is revealed.
