Gamestop get-together gathers gorgeous goodies

View post on imgur.com

The Bowser and Toad Wii Remotes I've kovered (heh) before. Let's be honest, we were all expecting another Zelda themed system to come out eventually. What we weren't expecting was 2 in the same year.The big surprise is Nintendo finally bringing the smaller New 3DS to the states. Expect the cool face plates to jump in price now.

Preorder the New 3DS here and the Zelda themed XL here. The New 3DS XL and remotes are exclusive to Gamestop and no word yet on the exclusivity of the Animal Crossing bundle.

More Mega Merch! Mega Man figure builder line announced

Figures

Since I have no clue what this line is:

Make way, Monster Hunter! Capcom's popular Figure Builder line is about to get a little more mega. Leaked ahead of an official announcement, Play Asia is listing a Mega Man Figure Builder set planned to ship in December.

The $34.99 bundle contains six classic series characters: Mega Man, Rush, Proto Man, Roll, Mega Man 8 Roll, Helmetless Mega Man, and Bass/Treble. Each figure stands at approximately 70mm or 2.75 inches. Images of the figures themselves do not exist at this time.

Pre-orders are live opening soon if you're interested. As per usual, quantity is expected to be limited.

Don't be alarmed, but the price comes to close to $200, but they have a payment plan also. Limited to 295 crafting days, so order one before time runs out.

Gold and silver edition Mario amiibos headed your way

AU yeah!

Originally found on Nintendo's CPSIA Certificates of Compliance page come hints of the first limited edition variant Amiibos. People have been speculating that these will be Club Nintendo gold or platinum rewards, but the Elite Status section of the discontinuation notice says:

In order to reach Elite Status, you must earn 300 Coins (for Gold Status) or 600 Coins (for Platinum Status) between July 1, 2014 and March 31, 2015. Members who reach Elite Status will be able to choose a downloadable game from a wide selection of Nintendo 3DS and Wii U titles. Your free Elite Status gift will be available between April 1 and April 30, 2015. A list of the Elite Status 2015 gifts will be posted here once announced.

So we'll have to play the waiting game and see if these are exclusive to the Nintendo World Store, some other retailer, or are going to be released randomly as chase figures. And no word yet if these are coming to other regions or if the entire Mario line-up will get a gold and silver exclusive.

Metal Mario Wii wheel headed to Japan

Metal! *headbangs*

Surely an odd choice as the Mario, Luigi, and Peach Wii wheels all have character themed Wii remotes to go with them and Metal Mario does not. Included instead is a decal.

Wind Waker Ganondorf up for preorder

You can preorder the regular for $250 or the exclusive for $270. The edition size for both is TBD and collectors can rest easy knowing they'll have room to display these because the Wind Waker line is 1/6th scale.
