At San Diego Comic Con back in July, a Koopa of rather monstrous dimensions was built from LEGO bricks. We were stunned by this 14ft LEGO Bowser when it was first shown, and now LEGO decided to share some behind-the-scenes footage of how the darling Bowser was put together.
Using a 2,807-piece Bowser set as a benchmark, this gigantic structure took 3,290 hours to build – that’s it. 137 days. And if you think 2800 bricks is a lot, try 663,900. It’s a LEGO fan’s dream.
Of course, the design of the giant Bowser includes more than just LEGO. There are electronics that allow his head and arms to move, as well as other structures to help keep King Coupe from collapsing on himself or others. Each part of the Bowser is made separately – like the shell, head, arms, etc. – and then placed on the body to create this brick masterpiece.
