Super Mario’s Bowser Statue Heats Up First 4 Figures with a Well-Timed Fireball
First 4 Figures announces that Super Mario's favorite villain will be receiving the figure treatment in the form of two Bowser statues.
The guys at First 4 Figures are at it again! Or you could say they’ve been at it for the past two years, because that’s how long they’ve been working on the latest announcement to come to the collectible manufacturer’s line-up. The team has announced that a Super Mario Bowser statue is now available for pre-order.
This statue comes in multiple forms, as do many of First 4 Figures’ statues. This one has an exclusive version and a regular version. The Regular Bowser includes the bowser statue itself, with the character in his signature groping pose, plus a base for him to stand on that has been detailed to look like one of his dungeon floors. You can find some shots of this figure in the gallery below.
The Exclusive Bowser also comes with his styled base and signature pose, but includes one very important element: flare. This Bowser features a fully animated LED fireball that can attach to the character’s mouth, featuring him in his best light. For a few images of this effect, check out the gallery below.
Something that can be said of both versions is that First 4 Figures has done justice to the character’s size. The Bowser statue measures in at 19 inches tall and 19 inches wide. Both figures are actually available for the same price as well, meaning you could pick up the Exclusive or the Regular Bowser statue for $699.
These Bowsers are now available for pre-order, but they won’t be actually released until sometime in Q3 2018. For more information on these figures, you can find the Exclusive Bowser statue and the Regular Bowser statue on the First 4 Figures website. You could also watch the First 4 Figures video below that details what went into making this monstrosity.
You may recall that Super Mario Odyssey recently released. DualShockers’ own Lou Contaldi recently reviewed the title, finding it to be plenty worthy of standing next to some of the other exceptional exclusives that have appeared on the Nintendo Switch thus far.
