LEGO Super Mario 71436 King Boo's Haunted Mansion Officially Revealed | August 2024

Peach's Castle and now King Boo's Haunted Mansion, the LEGO designers really are giving us iconic Super Mario locations in LEGO brick built form. That's right one of the three LEGO Super Mario sets that have been officially revealed as part of the Mario Day celebrations is 71436 King Boo's Haunted Mansion. The brick built Haunted Mansion will retail for $74.99 with a total of 932 pieces.

Like 71435 Battle with Roy at Peach's Castle, another King Boo's Haunted Mansion has already made appearance in LEGO form for the LEGO Super Mario theme. Back in January 2022, 71401 Luigi's Mansion Haunt-and-Seek released along with two other Luigi's Mansion themed LEGO models. Together, they created a Haunted Mansion course involving a range of enemies including the first appearance of King Boo in LEGO form.

Now the leader of the Boos and ghosts is back with 71436 King Boo's Haunted Mansion. The brick built Haunted Mansion, like the new Peachs Castle, is more of a display model as well as another expansion to the course building system. A lot more of the 932 pieces are used for the walls and inner details of the mansion, which can be fully enclosed, rather than a bunch of random plates going in multiple directions.

The Haunted Mansion is filled with mysterious and scary details. The main colours used to create the mansion are a mix of grey, brown, green and purple. The roofs being purple add that bit of colour to a fairly dark LEGO Super Mario playset. The big brown doors create an intimidating entrance along with the black spikes dotted around on the roofs and other parts of the scenery to create this scary look and feel.

The interior of the Haunted Mansion is fairly lacklustre apart from two obvious functions: an elevating sofa and a bookcase with a key-reveal function. Mario, Luigi and Peach can all sit on the sofa and interact with the interactive tile to create a spooky floating effect. The sofa does actaully levitate using a smartly made playfeature controlled by the builder themselves.

The key can be used to open the treasure chest at the front of the mansion. However, Mario, Luigi and Peach will have to fight off four brick built enemies which are included in 71436 King Boo's Haunted Mansion. These are King Boo, a Yellow Baby Yoshi, a Dry Bones and a scared Boo. Even though none of these characters are exclusive, there still great additions to the $75 set.
