In October, Lego will release the largest set in its Super Mario series to date – a 2,807-piece model of the Koopa King himself. The Mighty Bowser set will be part of Lego’s fun but non-infantile adult line known as Adults Welcome. A closer look at the Super Koopa figure reveals that it requires far more advanced spatial thinking skills to build than the rest of Lego’s youth-focused themed Super Mario series. In addition to Super Bowser coming with his own Lego version of a fireball launcher, there’s also a button to control the character’s movements and an entire combat platform for Bowser, complete with two towers for the villain to knock down.
When fans finally finish building their Lego version of Bowser, the fun is far from over. After all, there’s really no point in owning a poseable Super Koopa figure that’s bigger than your average house cat if you can’t unleash mayhem and destruction with it. For those who own the Super Mario Starter Course (which includes toy versions of Mario, Luigi, and Peach), Lego suggests using the completed Bowser figure to wreak havoc in the Mushroom Kingdom. Given the size of our heroes, it’s definitely not going to be a fair fight.
“Bowser is quite simply the ultimate boss – and we’re excited to announce that we’re introducing this oversized version to the adult LEGO Super Mario range for a little extra danger,” said Lego Senior Designer Carl Merriam in a press release.
At $270, the Bowser set is the most expensive in Super Mario’s two-year-old Lego line to date. The set is not yet available for pre-order, but is set to hit stores on October 1st. Super Mario fans can look forward to more expansion sets to be revealed in August, including a Princess Peach set and a Big Spike expansion set.
