Last week, Nintendo’s social media team was quite busy promoting this year’s grandest Super Mario celebration. Included in the announcement is a brief mention of yet another collaboration with LEGO. And this time around, we now have a visual confirmation of what this first collaboration is in the likes of the just recently revealed LEGO Super Mario Dry Bowser Castle Battle (71423)
Coming in at 1,321 pieces this set is expected to retail for $100 once it arrives in LEGO stores this month. Though it is a sizeable set as shared by Dylan Chow over Instagram, this is still not considered an 18+ set. Just a couple of days ago, The Brick Fan mentioned that this upcoming LEGO MAR10 celebratory set is not an 18+ or D2C set which usually appeals to adult LEGO fans in a similar vein to that of The Mighty Bowser (71411) from last year, the Super Mario 64 Question Mark Block (71395) from 2021, or the Nintendo Entertainment System (71374) from 2020.
Based on what we see from Dylan’s post, the Dry Bowser Castle Battle (71423), seems to be another expansion set that ties up with previous LEGO Super Mario sets in terms of functionality and course features. We even get to see a similar Purple Toad found in LEGO Super Mario Character Packs Series 5 (71410), a Bone Goomba from LEGO Super Mario Character Packs Series 2 (71386), and a new Bone Piranha Plant and Lava Blargg build as well. I also love the aesthetics of the castle’s chain while giving it the same vibe as that of Bowser’s Castle Boss Battle (71369).
The LEGO Super Mario Dry Bowser Castle Battle is expected to make its official debut any time soon once MAR10 Day celebrations are in full swing. As a final note, just2good over his YouTube channel also reports of another LEGO Super Mario that will happen alongside the reveal of the Dry Bowser Castle. It is anticipated that this will be our first LEGO Donkey Kong set and it’s exciting to see how LEGO will pull this out.
