LEGO Super Mario 71411 The Mighty Bowser officially revealed

The LEGO Group has revealed a brand new LEGO Super Mario direct-to-consumer set coming in October, the enormous 71411 The Mighty Bowser.

Weighing in at 2,807 pieces, the huge buildable figure packs in a surprising amount of articulation for its size. There’s a button under Bowser’s shell to control the movement of his head and neck, while his arms, fingers, legs and tail are individually articulated. He’s also got a fireball launcher in his mouth, recreating the boss’s in-game abilities.

Just like both previous LEGO Super Mario exclusives, 71374 Nintendo Entertainment System and 71395 Super Mario 64 Question Mark Block, 71411 The Mighty Bowser can interact with Mario, Luigi and the upcoming Peach digital figure. Bowser’s battle platform incorporates a POW block that can be triggered by one of the three main characters, and features two towers for the baddie to knock over.

That effectively makes this set the ultimate boss level Expansion Set for the regular LEGO Super Mario sets, as well as serving as a stellar display piece in its own right. You’ll just need to make room first: the final model stands an impressive 32cm tall, 41cm wide and 28cm deep, allowing the King of the Koopas to properly tower over the rest of the LEGO Super Mario range.

“Bowser is, quite simply, the ultimate boss – and we’re delighted to announce that we’re introducing this oversized version to the LEGO Super Mario adult line for a little added peril,” said LEGO Super Mario Senior Designer Carl Merriam. “Since we launched LEGO Super Mario two years ago, we’ve been on such a journey – gradually expanding with the most iconic and recognisable characters of the LEGO Super Mario universe.

“Adding LEGO Super Mario The Mighty Bowser really is a blast from the past for many adult fans of LEGO. He might be the big boss, but he still brings back a warm feeling of nostalgia to adult Super Mario fans worldwide. Just as defeating Bowser was always the ultimate challenge in the Super Mario games, here we’re challenging fans to build the King of the Koopas from nearly 3,000 pieces.”

71411 The Mighty Bowser will be available to purchase from October 1 for £229.99 / $269.99 / €269.99.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
