Patterns of Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong, and more are headed to Joann's Fabric Stores across the country. The designs shown are very intriguing, and some no-sew fleece blanket kits will also be available. Neat!
Yes . . . I'm going to make you click a link to get to that pic. The secret figure of this set is . . .
That was the weirdest title I've written on the site so far. Heh. So, you know those plush tires cushions thingies that came out a while back. They're adding another, featuring Rosalina and Peach. Out now in the prize machines in Japan!
Taito has been killing it lately, and adding this just knocks it out of the park. This Gold Mario figure will stand nearly 12" tall and is coming out in late December.
More giant plushes are coming from Taito, this time it's Boo. Out now, so look for auctions/imports!
Four new somewhat commemorative plates have spawned to usher in the 30th Anniversary celebration of
our nation's history Super Mario Bros. Each plate is painstakingly emblazoned with imagery from the historical event game series. The ceramic melamine plates each come in boxes featuring the plate's artwork, and can now be purchased as a set in Japan, but for a limited time only! You know, for as long as supplies last.
See the actual plates after the jump!
Before we begin, I definitely had to go back and check that this was indeed a new air hockey table and it wasn't this one (on sale at Amazon.jp). Not much of a difference, except the "W" part of the logo, which obviously adds some sort of twist to the game. They suggest that four people can play the game, and it does appear that the board is larger than the original. The last version had four paddles, but that was two people holding two paddles. Both games have a single player mode as well. Not sure how that works, but it appears that you set up obstacles on the board. Releasing this August 1st in Japan from Epoch.
Coming in October wherever fine Hot Wheels cars are sold!

Despite Target and maybe even Toys R Us apparently dropping the line do to poor sales of waves one and two, Jakks Pacific is moving forward with their World of Nintendo. We see more four inch figures supposedly hitting shelves this fall. Toon Link, Falco Lombardi, Toad, Red Koopa Paratroopa, Zelda, Skull Kid, White Raccoon Mario, Red Yoshi, and Slippy Toad are among the new line, with Slippy coming "Late 2015". I sure hope Peppy doesn't get left out. Also seen are some Star Fox plushes of Fox and Falco, along with a white Pikmin. Wave 3 of the four inch figures are sort of hitting shelves now, as we've seen Fox, Yoshi, Peach, and the Goomba on ebay and in independent retail displays. Hopefully distribution of these becomes more widespread. The interest is certainly there.

I wondered if towels would come out for this game. Seems perfectly aligned for merchandise. I mean, after a match, what do those squid kids DO? They probably shower off all that ink, and then they need a towel, right? Well, it made sense in my mind. Two styles, 24" x 48", out now in crane games in Japan.
Also perfect are these die-cut mats. Approximately 24" x 20" squids will keep your feet dry . . . against all odds. Blue and orange flavors. Out now in retail stores in Japan. Hit the jump to see the actual mats, and a bonus hand towel available from Club Nintendo!
Thomas was ALone was arguably my favorite session playing with blocks, and now I can bring that virtual experience into the real world with these figures offering the "full articulation possible for toys based on the reasonably popular indie game". Claire floats. No really. That's amazing. If only John's ego could be sculpted into the figure . . . or is it?
Unfortunately, these are sold out, but were £20.00. Perhaps another set could be made? Please?
