Remember, earlier this month, when Nintendo and Lego unveiled a huge new Bowser set? At the time, we all thought it was a big Bowser. And honestly, at a foot tall and nearly 3,000 pieces, it’s still pretty big (and will set you back $270). But now we even more Bowser. This massive new Bowser animatronic will not be for sale, but will be roaming San Diego Comic-Con later this week.
Bowser, sworn enemy (and sometimes karting buddy) Mario & Co. is a very large and powerful villain that has appeared in countless Nintendo games over the past 37 years. So it only makes sense to recreate the iconic, destructive King Koopa as a massive, fully animated Lego animatronic. Earlier today Nintendo showed first look on this new Bowser action figure with posable eyeballs, fingers and eyebrows.
This massive figure of Bowser was first teased earlier this month, after the recently announced Bowser Lego puppet buildable set was unveiled. Interestingly, the Bowser set you can buy contains 2807 Lego pieces. That’s a lot of bricks! However, this animated statue of King Koopa at San Diego Comic-Con is made up of 663,900 individual Lego bricks, more than 236 times more than the home set. Yes, a little bigger…
I probably don’t need to tell you this, but don’t expect Nintendo and Lego to start selling massive human scale builds of Bowser anytime soon. In the video showing this largest Bowser, the little text at the bottom indicated that this item was not for sale. And even if it were, that many bricks would cost a lot more than $270. There are over 9,000 pieces in the Lego Titanic set. and costs $630. I can only imagine how much this massive Bowser figurine will retail. You will probably need to take out a bank loan.
While you won’t be able to get your very own animatronic Bowser for a few hundred pounds, you can at least get to see this big boy at San Diego Comic-Con starting July 21st and ending July 24th.
And if you want your own (tiny) big Bowser Lego set previously announced can be found at Official Lego website ahead of October 1st release.
