Jakks Pacific announced a new Mario playset over Twitter to celebrate Mario Day 2021. The Deluxe Bowser’s Airship playset is based on his iconic airship. It will be released in Fall 2021 and cost $39.99.
The Bowser airship playset is large enough to accommodate some of Jakks Pacific’s line of 2.5” Mario toys. It even comes with a Mario. Its features include spinning propellers, cannons, wheels, a figurehead of Bowser’s face, and a storage space below deck for additional Mario toys. A rear-mounted depiction of Bowser’s head, six doors with Bowser’s face, and a rendition of Bowser’s airship theme music triggered with a push of a button further the King Koopa motif.
Jakks Pacific built up to the announcement through a series of tweets containing a “Mario Monday” hashtag. These depicted other Jakks Pacific Mario toys and playsets alongside an airship-shaped shadow.
