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 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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
ThinkGeek is coming out with a Mega Man Mega Buster cannon replica. Price is tentatively set at $79.99 and will be available come November. It will have a trigger to push on the inside and lights on the side and in the cannon will light up. Pew pew pew!

Based on this code, look for which number is underlined to find the figure you want. The code may be different, but the underline is the key.
