LEGO Super Mario’s third huge build, 71411 The Mighty Bowser, will soon land on shelves and an early review from Ashnflash is giving us a closer look at the functionality of the giant brick-built boss battle.
As showcased in the designer video, 71411 The Mighty Bowser has moving limbs and an opening jaw that can make way for a launching fireball. The review reveals that these are controlled via knobs on the side of the figure, allowing you to control a lot of the model in one place. The legs, tail and arms can then be moved independently to allow for a fluid and fun boss battle.
With these functions, it’s safe to say that 71411 The Mighty Bowser is unlike any other LEGO model with puppeteering features that could inspire a new kind of LEGO figure in the future.
For now, 71411 The Mighty Bowser is just under two weeks away from release at the time of writing, launching on October 1 for £229.99 / $269.99 / €269.99. Like all other LEGO Super Mario sets, it’s compatible with LEGO Mario, Peach and Luigi for the biggest boss battle in the theme yet.
