The legendary San Diego Comic-Con returns from July 21-24, 2022. Additionally, the LEGO® Group will be there with loads of fun stuff in store. Among those, a life-sized, brick-built rendition of the King Koopa himself. You read that correctly. There will be 14-foot Bowser at Comic-Con this year. Not only that, he is motorized. While San Diego might be far for many Canadians to travel, if you’re in the neighborhood, it might be worth checking out for a photo op. Both the LEGO® Group and Nintendo provided teasers earlier via Twitter.
Of course, this monstrosity celebrates the upcoming release of Mighty Bowser (71411) on October 1, 2022. The set features 2807 bricks for $349.99 CAD. Meanwhile, the King Koopa statue at Comic-Con comes in at 663,900 bricks. If you thought Mighty Bowser was an expensive set, imagine the king-sized version on display! Let’s assume the 14-footer clocks in at the same cost-per-brick as its smaller counterpart ($0.125 CAD/brick). At that price, a set consisting of 663,900 bricks sets you back $82,987.50 CAD. Yowser, Bowser! Here’s hoping this is but one of many reveals coming from San Diego Comic Con 2022. What are you hoping to see? Let us know in the comments below or reach out on social media.
Until next time,
