LEGO® Super Mario August 2021: the new recolours

Ben Davies (@ProfBrickkeeper) has analysed the whole summer 2021 LEGO® Super Mario range - sets 71360, 71387, 71389, 71391, 71393 and 71394 – to show you all the parts that have been colour changed for this latest wave.

Following our exclusive coverage of the new moulds that would be appearing in the August 2021 wave of LEGO® Super Mario sets, today we will be looking at part recolours you can expect to find in the upcoming sets. A total of 46 recolours appear across the upcoming wave, in 18 different colors. 

Dark Azure

Five elements appear for the first time in Dark Azure. Within the LEGO Super Mario theme Dark Azure is associated with flying levels, so these elements predictable appear in aerial-based sets.

4x in 71394 Character Packs - Series 3 (Amp)

Sand Green

A single Sand Green recolour has been introduced, used as a support in the Luigi Starter Course. At first glance it’s not as exciting as other recolours, but I suspect builders will nevertheless find numerous uses for it.

Hinge Plate 3 x 4 Locking Dual 2 Finger (6357911 | 44570)

Black

Two Black recolours have been introduced. Of these, Brick Curved 2 x 2 x 1 1/3 with Curved Top - Corner (6359039 | 67810) is likely to be the most interesting, given the relative rarity of the design and the numerous building possibilities opened up by the part appearing in Black.

4x in 71388 Boss Sumo Bro Topple Tower

Medium Stone Grey/ Light Bluish Gray

Three Medium Stone Grey/ Light Bluish Gray recolours appear in the upcoming LEGO Super Mario sets. Most of these elements are intended to be decorative rather than functional, and I suspect they will be appreciated as such by builders.

Ornament with Bar (6358938 | 28870)

2x in 71391 Bowser’s Airship

White

Two part designs have been recoloured in White. Of these, I’d expect the Tile 1 x 1 Heart (6361663 | 39739) to see the most usage in MOCs, although the Propeller with Pin (6360948 | 54568) is also quite welcome in White.

Flame Yellowish Orange/ Bright Light Orange

Two parts have been recoloured in Flame Yellowish Orange/ Bright Light Orange. The Bracket 1 x 1 - 1 x 1 (6359040 | 36841) is likely to be the most interesting to builders, acting as a counterpart to Bracket 1 x 1 - 1 x 1 Inverted (6249235 | 36840) which does appear in Flame Yellowish Orange/ Bright Light Orange.
