Bowser is LEGO’s biggest Super Mario set ever

Since 2020 LEGO and Nintendo have been partnered up to make official sets based on Super Mario and now the pair have revealed the biggest one yet in the form of Bowser.

Bowser has been revealed by way of a video, embedded below, which shows off the finished product and what the set looks like once you’ve assembled all 2 806 pieces.

This piece count dethroned the previous holder of the largest moniker which was 71395: Super Mario 64 Question Mark Block with 2 064 pieces.

It also dwarfs the question mark block when it comes to size. The block is 18 centimetres cubed while Bowser is 32 X 41 X 28 centimetres (height X width X depth).

The extreme width here is thanks to a pedestal / display stand which is included in the box.

“Battle platform with a POW Block and 2 towers – The platform has a hidden POW Block for enhanced play with Starter Courses (sold separately) and 2 towers that are designed to be knocked over by Bowser,” reads the description for the set.

For those out of the loop when it comes to the Starter Courses and the unique electronics integration that LEGO Super Mario uses, check out our interview with the lead designer on the project. We see how this works with Bowser in the video too.

Far from a static display model the build has various points of articulation and a head that can move around – and shoot a fireball – thanks to hidden controls in the toso.

Launching on 1st October this year Bowser will set you back $269.99 in the USA, £229.99 in the UK and €269.99 in the EU according to the listings on the official LEGO website.

No pricing or availability has been released for countries where the LEGO website doesn’t ship to.
