Gentlemen, Start (Building) Your Turtle Shells

?Holy shit — K’nex is making an official Mario Kart faux-Lego line? Nice! First up are the Mario brothers and Yoshi in cars and bikes, along with a few of the items from the games such as turtle shells and bananas and the like. But K’nex is heavily implying that they’ll be releasing (or at least revealing) full tracks in June, complete with obstacles like rotating bars of fireballs! I may be done with the Mario Kart games, but I 100% support buildable Mario Kart cars and tracks. At the very least, the computer can’t throw the blue turtle shell at you seconds before you cross the finish line in a goddamned K’nex set. (Via Tomopop)
