Remember earlier this month, when Nintendo and Lego unveiled a massive new Bowser set? At the time, we all thought it was a big Bowser. And to be fair, with a foot high and almost 3,000 pieces, it’s still quite large (and will set you back $ 270). But now we have an even number bigger Bowser. This massive new Bowser animatronics will not be for sale, but will hang around the San Diego Comic-Con later this week.
Bowser, the archenemy (and the occasional go-kart buddy) of Mario and company is a very big, powerful villain who 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 animatronics. Earlier today, Nintendo revealed the first glance on this new Bowser figure, complete with moving eyeballs, fingers and eyebrows.
This massive Bowser figure was first teased earlier this month, following the unveiling of the recently announced buildable Bowser Lego doll set. As an interesting comparison point, the Bowser set contains you can buy 2,807 Lego pieces. There are a lot of bricks! However, this animated San Diego Comic-Con King Koopa statue consists of 663,900 individual Lego bricks, which is over 236 times as many as the homepage. So yes, just a little bigger …
I probably do not need to tell you this, but do not expect Nintendo and Lego to start selling massive Bowser buildings on a human scale anytime soon. In the video unveiling of this largest Bowser to date, small text at the bottom pointed out that this thing is not for sale. And even if it were, that amount of bricks would cost much more than $ 270. The Lego Titanic set has over 9000 parts and costs $ 630. I can only imagine how much this huge Bowser figure would go for in retail. You will probably need to take out a bank loan.
Although you will not be able to get your own hundreds of pounds animatronic Bowser, you can at least see this big boy at the San Diego Comic-Con, which begins July 21 and ends July 24.
And if you want your own (small) big Bowser Lego set, you can find what was announced earlier on Legos official website before the release on October 1.
