The Super Mario theme provides play opportunities for kids. However, it also includes several sets appealing to adults’ nostalgia. In the past, the LEGO® Group released a replica of the original Nintendo Entertainment System. Subsequently, the N64 Question Block hit the market. Now, Mighty Bowser (71411) was revealed as the third adult oriented Nintendo set. Weighing in at nearly 3000 bricks, expect Mighty Bowser to hit store shelves in October 2022.
- NAME: Mighty Bowser
- SET #: 71411
- THEME: Super Mario
- COST: $349.99 CAD
- BRICK COUNT: 2807
- MINIFIGURES: None
- RELEASE DATE: October 1, 2022
- COST/BRICK: $0.125 CAD (Good value)
The official press release shares the following details about the set:
Whether fans are buying LEGO Super Mario The Mighty Bowser for build, play or display, the moveable figure will use newly designed elements to recreate the look of Bowser’s spikes. As well as having a fireball launcher and a button to control Bowser’s head and neck movements, his mouth, arms, legs, and tail will be movable too, so fans can replicate the fearsome nature of the Koopa King that they know and love.
The Mighty Bowser, in true LEGO Super Mario style, also has an interactive element. Fans that own a LEGO Super Mario Starter Course can choose to battle Bowser against LEGO Mario, Luigi or Peach, allowing for truly immersive and digitally enhanced play. But watch out – Bowser is armed with a fireball and isn’t afraid to fight back!
I do not generally collect Super Mario sets. However, Mighty Bowser looks impressive. Additionally, the build techniques needed to create a fully moveable character at this scale are probably interesting. I am tempted to get this just from an educational standpoint. This looks like an amazing display piece too. I think even non-Mario fans will appreciate the interesting brick selection and techniques in this set. What do you think?
