The Lego Group reveals Lego Super Mario's largest build yet

The Mighty Bowser makes his ferocious debut

Yesterday, the Lego Group has announced the latest addition to the Lego Super Mario Adult product line: the biggest Lego Bowser to date, built from an incredible 2,807 pieces. Lego Super Mario The Mighty Bowser building kit is a highly detailed recreation of the King of the Koopas, complete with controllable movements and the ability to launch a fireball, reflective of Bowser’s huge and powerful features.

The set is the latest product from the unique Lego and Nintendo partnership, which first launched in 2020. The Adult line incorporates a range of Super Mario-themed building kits, each designed to evoke nostalgia from Lego fans who remember Mario as an intrinsic part of their childhood. Previous products include a buildable Lego Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and the iconic ‘?’ Block with levels from the Super Mario 64 game inside. The Lego Bowser figure, part of the ‘Adults Welcome’ series, has been long-awaited by Adult Fans of Lego (AFOLs) who want to challenge themselves with a detailed set that will truly bring back fond memories of the past.

Whether fans are buying Lego Super Mario The Mighty Bowser for build, play or display, the moveable figure will use newly designed elements to recreate the look of Bowser’s spikes. As well as having a fireball launcher and a button to control Bowser’s head and neck movements, his mouth, arms, legs, and tail will be movable too.

The Mighty Bowser, in true Lego Super Mario style, also has an interactive element. Fans that own a Lego Super Mario Starter Course can choose to battle Bowser against Lego Mario, Luigi or Peach, allowing for truly immersive and digitally enhanced play.

Lego Super Mario The Mighty Bowser includes step-by-step instructions to guide the complex build of the figure.

The brand-new Lego Super Mario The Mighty Bowser is for sale from October 1st, 2022 on and from select leading retailers around the world.
