In honor of Mario Day, Lego has announced a new Dry Bowser Castle Expansion released on August 1st. The Dry Bowser Expansion Set ($110), according to a product tour during the Lego Mario Day Live Stream, features Dry Bowser looming over a castle wall from the front. The characters can enter through a secret passage on the side of the castle and see poor purple Toad trapped in a cage held up by a crane.
There is a mechanism for Dry Bowser to switch from front out to in if you want him to catch Mario in the act of rescuing characters. Mario can also jump on the crane and use it to knock Dry Bowser down. Other pieces in the set include Dry Bowser’s small training area, complete with pole and punching bag.
Lego also teased a secret at the base of the castle that can be activated with an electronic Lego Mario figure (included in the Mario starter course). Information for the Dry Bowser Castle Expansion set is on the Lego website, but pre-orders are not yet available.
The Dry Bowser Expansion Set is meant to be an add-on to one of the starter course sets, such as the Mario, Luigi, and Princess Peach sets. They’re all on sale now, with the Mario & Luigi kits 20% off at $48 (originally $60). The Princess Peach kit is 30% off at $42 (originally $60).
