Golden set for New Super Mario Bros. 2 from Auto Toy

Japan Auto Toy has released these prize figures to arcades. Not sure when, but it's a great little keychain set featuring many of the enemies that turn gold in the game.

Dr. Robotnik has erected a statue of himself

22 inches tall and limited to 1,000 pieces worldwide, here is Sonic's nemesis standing proud with some chaos emeralds. $400 and set to arrive Q2 of 2015. He comes with extra hands too, with or without the emeralds. You'd think that would have been the exclusive, but not this time. There is also a contest going on at their Facebook page to win him outright.

Goliath statue to release for 2K's Evolve

Nearly 30 inches tall, weighing in at 35 pounds, this sucker lives up to his name. Nothing compared to the life-size version seen at E3 this year, but still mighty impressive. The Goliath from Triforce is limited to 500 pieces worldwide and comes with a Goliath-sized price tag as well, hitting $750. But that's not all. At New York Comic Con this year, people will be able to pre-order the Savage Goliath variant that is even more limited to 150 pieces worldwide and will cost $800. The variant will have some red paint to accentuate the skin. Expensive paint job. Coming Q2 of 2015. It's a gamble, sure, seeing as how it's a new IP and the game will be out before the statue. Maybe that's why pre-orders are non-refundable. You also better watch the shipping on it, as it's classified as oversized. Meaning not cheap.

You can pre-order now

Amiibo, wave 2

Exclusive edition:

Luigi's Mansion figures a bit early for Halloween


Luigi, a scared Toad, and the King Boo himself. All in great packaging from the Nihon Auto Toy Company. They sure know what they are doing. All of their figures are large, in charge, and have fantastic quality.

Furuta keeps the choco egg figure train going with Super Mario 3D World

I love these figures. They're like little puzzles, they're small, they're great with detail, painted well, and always manage to fit in characters that have never had merch before. Furuta sets us up for another round of these in October this year. Any bets on the secret figure? I'm betting Cat Peach.

Yoshi's New Island Gashapon

Yoshi's New Island has released unto the world, and now some merch has unexpectedly shown up. Why is it unexpected? The Yoshi series has largely been overlooked by the merch companies, which is sad. However, now we have a bunch of Yoshi transformations as little gashapon keychains. NCSX has the whole set up for pre-order, but I'm telling you now you can probably beat that price by waiting.

Paper Mario Sticker Star Plush Blocks

I love that the Paper Mario series is finally getting some decent merchandise. This time we see plush blocks straight out of the game, and you can even peel the "stickers" off the blocks! Sweetness. These are quite large too. Bigger than the sound blocks from a while ago.

A Mario Coin Shooter and Jump World


I thought these were modern pachinko machines, but instead, the yellow one is a coin shooter and the orange one has you jumping little marbles up to the top of that little platforming simulator . . . device.
Check the jump for Epoch's packaging of both.

Mario Kart 8 Marble Loop Race


Epoch has stepped their marble race up a notch with this Mario Kart 8 set, making the marbles go all ant-grav in celebration of the Wii U game sweeping the nations.

New Super Mario Bros. U Projector eggs

Remember these? Takara Tomy Arts must have had good sales from them, as they have released some new egg projectors based on New Super Mario Bros. U. Again showing art from the game, this set is really only distinguishable from the last via the tags and three distinctly colored Yoshi eggs. Pink, Yellow, and Blue eggs all show the baby Yoshis that they contain. Also, Bowser Jr., Peach, and Mario scenes can be seen.

Mario crystal stamps are some high-grade stampers

Out now from Ensky, these crystal stampers are pretty large high-quality stamps. At around 350yen each, they're not cheap, either. Packaging display and more pics after the break.

Rush Plush very hush hush

GE Animation may release this Rush Plush sometime in August. It should be around $30, and the size is reported as 4"L x 10"W x 9"H. This may be the first of many classic character plushes, if any of this is to be believed. It's all based on a press leak, so we'll see what comes of it. Still, with Rock and Blues selling so well, it stands to reason that they would pursue the line.
