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.
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.
liveopening soon if you're interested. As per usual, quantity is expected to be limited.
Via Rockman Corner
Due out in November. No word on price yet.
Let's hope there's not one for each villager.
Set to be released in September in gashapon capsules in Japan. But you can preorder a full set from NCSX.
When you think of the Bradford Exchange, video game memorabilia isn't the first thing that comes to mind. Usually it's collector plates or ornaments. Well,they found some time to branch out and create a Pac-Man grandfather clock. This collectible clocks in at almost 2 feet tall. 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.
In a move that's sure to anger some backers, Comcept and Deep Silver have created an incredible LE that includes:
- individually numbered 6.5" figurine of Beck with 3 interchangeable faceplates and 14 points of articulation
- foil signature of legendary game creator Keiji Inafune on packaging
- Launch Edition of Mighty No. 9 w/all pre-order bonuses
while the $60 backers got:
A classic-style game box (Western- or Japanese-style, your choice), a printed version of the instruction manual (English or Japanese, your choice), and a special Backer-only golden color variation for the game's hero, Beck! Includes all previous rewards.
Set for release on May 25th exclusively through Hot Topic and will be limited to 1,000 units. It will feature a selection of songs from MM 1-10.
- Releasing May 30th
- Gold Mario is exclusive to Target stores
- Silver Mario is exclusive to EB Games
- Sells for AU$17.95
It has already met the goal, so anything extra goes to stretch goals. Don't miss your chance to own an official release previously only available in Japan.
The pictures are of: a scaled Skyward Sword Link figure, a Kirby Nendoroid, Link from Majora's Mask Nendoroid, a Caeda and Marth Nendoroid, and a couple of Metal Gear Solid Nendoroids
Announced at WonderFest. No release date or pricing info yet.
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.
Viz Media is set to re-release the Link to the Past comic that originally appeared in Nintendo Power in 1993. No price is set, but it will be released May 5th.

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.
