The sets are still on the blocky end of the spectrum, but they're pretty neat looking.

Last June, toy company K'NEX and Nintendo announced that they'd worked out a deal that would give K'NEX the rights to develop a line of construction sets based on Mario Kart Wii. Now you can take a look at the results of that partnership. K'NEX has revealed five of the sets, which feature characters Mario, Luigi, and Yoshi on karts and bikes.

As you can see, they're pretty nifty little toys. The bikes sell for $9.99, and the karts are $19.99. In addition to getting two additional wheels, the karts also feature pull-back motors. Fun!
