What better way to announce LEGO Luigi’s Mansion than on Halloween! LEGO have sneakily dropped an announcement of Luigi’s Mansion sets, starring LEGO Luigi!
Three expansion levels and sets have been shown off, and
it looks like you’ll need LEGO Luigi from LEGO 71387 Adventures with Luigi Starter to activate these.
Update: LEGO Mario is also compatible with the Luigi’s Mansion Expansion sets, so you DON’T have to get LEGO Luigi, thankfully. But it wouldn’t feel right, that’s for sure. Thanks Ed, for the heads up!
Three sets have been revealed as part of the wave:
- 71401 Haunt and Seek Expansion Set (79,99 USD/EUR)
- 71397 Lab and Poltergust Expansion Set (24,99 EUR/29,95 USD)
- 71399 Entryway Expansion Set (39,99 USD/EUR)
These will be released on 1 January 2022!
LEGO Luigi looks to have gotten an upgrade, and is now in-charge of sucking up and collecting ghosts with his Poltergust, a vacuum cleaner specially designed for sucking up spirits and ghosts.
Very cool to see a brick-built version that will no doubt integrate well with the Luigi-figure.

71397 Lab and Poltergust Expansion Set (24,99 EUR/29,95 USD)
71399 Entryway Expansion Set (39,99 USD/EUR)
The Luigi’s Mansion games are terrific, and the latest installment on the Nintendo Switch – Luigi’s Mansion 3 is considered one of the best games on the Switch, and this should delight Nintendo and LEGO Mario fans who want to see Luigi in a leading role.
The sets are pretty neat, and if you’re familiar with the game, you’ll no doubt recognise Gold Ghosts, King Boo, and Bogmires which feature in the trailer.
I haven’t jumped on LEGO Luigi yet, but it looks like I’ll have to pick up a LEGO Luigi Starter Course soon…
