Zero pre-orders go live at First 4 Figures

X's buddy and fellow Maverick Hunter Zero is here in two different versions from First 4 Figures. The regular version is 17 inches tall and is $259.99, limited to 1000 pieces worldwide. The exclusive version is $40 more, and that gets you light-up features "all over" and the Z-Saber. F4F is trying something new with the exclusive, as the edition size will be announced after two weeks of pre-orders being up. Apparently more people want the exclusive version! Imagine that!

Jakks Pacific's World of Nintendo Walgreens exclusives surface

Three exclusive 8-bit characters are apparently appearing at Walgreens stores. A white tunic Link, a black and white "Classic" Mario (like Super Mario Land), and a Super Star Mario that has iridescent paint (see the pic after the break that shows the sheen). Pics from user @atomic_comet.

Nobody told me about this Raz plush from Psychonauts 10th Anniversary, so I'm telling you

iam8bit has a store. It's full of amazing things like prints and game soundtracks on vinyl. The most amazing thing I saw was this amazing Raz plush from Psychonauts 10th anniversary. It's $35 and it's just dying to come home with you.

New Splatoon squid plushes, squid phone jack buddies, and a FAKES warning

A new set of four Inkling plushes has surfaced, and they look pretty big. They have just started to appear on YJA, so they are likely prize plushes. Also, they're shiny! Pics after the break show the tag and the backs of them.
Also in this post we see some Inkling "Phone Jack Buddy" or "Jack Mascot" figures. A splat covers your phone jack and the Inkling appear to be shooting out of it. Six different colors make up the set.
Lastly, I'm also seeing some fake Inkling plushes online. See them after the jump.

Another Mario Kart 8 tire surfaces

Set one was cool, and then we saw the first of a second set, but we thought the tag was odd. Now, it makes sense.

Another Jakks wave to drool over and never see in stores

Let's face it. Jakks Pacific is simultaneously making us the happiest Nintendo collectors ever and crushing our dreams. Sort of like Nintendo did with Amiibo. Jakks can't seem to distribute to save their lives, but scalpers are the happiest folk on the planet. That Sheik though . . .

Tons of Final Fantasy stuff is dropping in

Stella has put together a great forum thread about all this stuff coming out with dates. Go check it out! More pics of stuff after the break!

F4F does Simon Belmont right

First 4 Figures is making 750 Simon Belmont statues. They went with Dracula first, but now Simon is large and in charge. 20 inches large. F4F is also releasing 299 of an exclusive version with the following additions:

In this, the First 4 Figures Exclusive Edition of the statue, Simon comes with additional pieces which can be swapped out at will. The Vampire Killer in his right hand can be exchanged for the Short Chain, and his open hand can be switched for one holding the Boomerang Cross.

Pre-order page on F4F - $400

Banpresto's Super Mario Bros. 30th prizes

Stuff! Starman plush cushion, giant mushroom plush, trio of mini-plushes, Mario shirt, plush pouches, a famicom controller cushion, and even some Mario glassware! These were given away in a lottery as prizes, so they'll be a little more expensive than retail.

New Chain Chomp plushes

San-ei has released a couple of new Chain Chomp plushes, one with mouth closed and one with mouth open. More pics after the break.

An inky flood of Splatoon merchandise includes plushes, puzzles, and more

Puzzles, handbags, danglers, figures, reflectors (?), and plushes. Just check out this link for a snapshot of the amount of stuff pouring out of Japan. The real stars are the four plushes. Sadly no Judd yet, but those keychain figures are awesome. Why are all the little trinkety items so expensive with Splatoon stuff?

HLJ has the best price for the plushes, all slated for a December release fro San-ei:

Stay Fresh!

New Legend of Zelda necklaces

Evidently someone over at Bioworld has been paying attantion to the unofficial Zelda jewelry being sold on Etsy, as all three of these new necklaces (and one keychain) may seem like nothing new to hardcore Zelda fans. Still, it's always nice to have licensed merch!
The first, the Hylian Shield and Master Sword combo, is very nicely done. The sword can even slide into the shield (see pic after the jump). Next is a fairy in a bottle. Rather than having a little puffball with wings, it's a plastic figure suspended on a little plastic pole. Last is the Hyrule Eagle Insignia necklace. I also picked up a heavy metal Hylian Shield keychain which is quite durable and could probably hurt someone in a pinch. This had released previously, but was nice to pick up with the set.
The necklaces are $10.50 each at the Hot Topic I went too, and the keychain was $6.50. They also had Nintendo costume items out and some new shirts, including a Majora's Mask tee, a shirt with all the masks from Majora's Mask, and a cool Game Boy Color shirt.

Yoshi Woolly World Amigurumi kits

Oh my gosh! Look at these cute plushes! I'll take five of everything! Wait . . . these are just kits? I have to build them myself?
That's right, this new beautiful set of plushes unfortunately requires your skill (or lack thereof) to manifest. The kits come with all the relevant pieces to assemble one, and instructions - in Japanese - to do so. *Sigh*
Maybe someone will sell the assembled kits at a decent price? Please?

Thanks Manveri!
