This 2,807-piece monstrosity is priced at US$269.99 / AU$399.99, and has a release date of 1 October 2022, and will be available exclusively from LEGO.com or your local LEGO store.

The King of the Koopas is brought to life in this epic scale, and has controllable movements as well as the ability to launch a fireball, reflective of Bowser’s huge and powerful features.
To illustrate just how large it is, the modemeasures over 12.5 in. (32 cm) high, 16 in. (41 cm) wide and 11 in. (28 cm) deep.
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!
The set is designed by Carl Merriam, and makes for the ultimate boss for LEGO Mario.
“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 Carl Merriam, Senior Designer, LEGO Super Mario.
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. We know they’re up to the task and will be chomping at the bit to get their hands on this great new addition to the Super Mario line.”
New element alert!

I think 71411 The Mighty Bowser looks absolutely brilliant, and makes for a large, imposing display piece with tremendous display presence.
For Nintendo fans, this is a must-buy and I really like just the creative freedom the LEGO Super Mario team have with the D2C sets. Starting with 71374 Nintendo Entertainment System, to last year’s 71395 Super Mario 64 Question Mark Block, it really seems like nothing is off the table, and there’s just so much that can be adapted for adult builders.
While this seems quite expensive here in Australia at AU$399.99, with the exchange rate, the set is actually priced in line with the US and UK after conversion, mostly because the AUD is currently so weak. It’s also about the same price as a Nintendo Switch to put things into perspective.
