This looks like a really fun build, and one that won’t break the bank, which LEGO fans will be thankful of. It makes for a snazzy LEGO Mario-themed desk ornament and one could argue that it’s the latest addition to the Botanical Collection.
And no, it doesn’t have any digital play functions which means it’s purely ornamental.
The LEGO Piranha Plant measures over 9 in. (23 cm) high, 4.5 in. (11 cm) wide and 6.5 in. (17 cm) deep.
This is honestly such a cool set, and I really enjoy the mid-range pricetag on this. I think LEGO have nailed the Piranha Plant’s look, and with it being relatively affordable, I can see this one being quite popular, especially as it’s purely an Adults set and will pull in fans of Mario as well.
What do you think of the LEGO Piranha Plant? Does this appeal to you?
