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.

Mario Nendoroid was inevitable, but still very welcome

Once we saw Luigi, we knew we would see a Mario Nendoroid eventually. That eventuality was revealed at Wonder Festival 2014. No other info, but he looks great!

ThinkGeek Mega Buster appears at SDCC

Snake Nendoroid gives you choice of cute versus polygonal

As previously stated, a Snake Nendoroid is coming. Now we know it'll be around November when it comes out. Check out the addition though! A polygonal PS1-style Snake. So tough to decide which to display, you may need two!

Thanks PigmaskPrivate!

Kirby's friends and foes are the stars of the next plush set from San-ei




A new Kirby set from San-ei called the "Kirby Adventure Series Plush Set" has four friends/foes from the Kirby series,, but no Kirby! While it's odd, Kirby has so many plush iterations now it could probably fill a swimming pool. We have seen King Dedede, Meta Knight, and Waddle DOo before (though Waddle Doo had a sword in his plush debut), but we welcome Chef Kawasaki to his very first plush rendition.

The cat's out of the bag now - Rosalina plush from San-ei

We rarely see unlockable characters hit the merchandise scene, mainly because Nintendo wants to keep them secret. This is why we still have no Dry Bowser merchandise. Still, during the hype train of Super Mario 3D World, Nintendo showed that Rosalina was playable before release. As she has been used by many players the world over, San-ei has seen fit to release Rosalina in a dress and cat suit.

Super Mario 3D World Item Chains get catty

Takara Tomy Arts took their sweet time coming out with the staple-for-each-Mario-game-release item chain set. This set has the Cat Goomba, Cat Banzai Bill, a Skipsqueak, Super Mushroom, 1-up Mushroom, Cat Bell, and the Double Cherry. The first two really need to be plushes, but I'll take mini figures.
