You too might be able to act out the ending of Super Mario 64-or any other Mario game-with the arrival of The Mighty Bowser figure on October 1, 2022. It's a truly massive thing that matches Bowser's size in the games, with the figure being 32cm (or 12.5 inches) tall and 41cm (16 inches) wide. Also like in the games, the figure can fight Mario, Luigi, and Peach LEGO figures through the battle platform's action tag. 

“Bowser is, quite simply, the ultimate boss – and we’re delighted to announce that we’re introducing this oversized version to the LEGO Super Mario adult line for a little added peril,” said LEGO Super Mario Senior Designer Carl Merriam. “Since we launched LEGO Super Mario two years ago, we’ve been on such a journey – gradually expanding with the most iconic and recognisable characters of the LEGO Super Mario universe.

The Mighty Bowser will also include a fireball launcher and a button to control Bowser's head and neck movements. His arms and fingers move too, which should prove useful when re-enacting famous battles with Mario and his friends.

 

“Adding LEGO Super Mario The Mighty Bowser really is a blast from the past for many adult fans of LEGO. He might be the big boss, but he still brings back a warm feeling of nostalgia to adult Super Mario fans worldwide. Just as defeating Bowser was always the ultimate challenge in the Super Mario games, here we’re challenging fans to build the King of the Koopas from nearly 3,000 pieces.”

While this might sound great, the price might a damper on the 2,807-piece figure, as it'll cost an eye-watering $269.99 to add to your collection. Oof.

Correction: This story originally mistakenly claimed Bowser was 32 Inches tall. He's only 32 cm tall, about a third of that. It has been corrected and apologies for the error.
