Nintendo and LEGO are bringing the massive LEGO Bowser game to San Diego Comic-Con 2022. No, it’s not the recently revealed LEGO Super Mario The Mighty Bowser set, which is set to launch October 1 for $269.99. That’s Too Small LEGO and Nintendo are bringing a massive 14-foot LEGO Statue of Bowser, referred to as a “king-sized wagon” to SDCC 2022 from July 21 through July 24 at the Nintendo booth at the convention.
More specifically, the “Big Buggy” is made of more than 663,000 pieces of LEGO bricks – and took 3,290 hours to complete. According to LEGO, the monstrous statue is powered by a control panel that can move the arms, head, eyes, eyebrows, and jaw. That’s not all, as there are also accompanying sound effects and background music. You can check out what LEGO Bowser looks like for yourself below:

“Reviving The Mighty Bowser in this unique representation was the natural choice and very much in line with what we offer in LEGO Super Mario,” Federico Bagher, Head of Global Marketing for the LEGO Group, said as part of the press release. “In our theme, we combine interaction and brick building. The same can be said about this oversized version of Bowser, which is as fierce as it is fun. We are excited to share it with everyone at Comic Con this year.”
Under contract, the LEGO Super Mario The Mighty Bowser set is made of 2,807 pieces of LEGO bricks. It’s more than 12.5 inches high and doesn’t have a control panel that moves its arms or anything else. On the other hand, people will be able to buy it and view it as finding a place to house a 14-foot LEGO Bowser buggy that sounds like it might be a difficult task at best.
As noted above, the King-Sized LEGO Super Mario Bowser build will appear at San Diego Comic-Con from July 21 through July 24. Plus, it’s scheduled to appear sometime this year at LEGO World in the Netherlands. The LEGO Super Mario The Mighty Bowser set is due out on October 1 and retails for $269.99.
