New Kirby toys are rip roarin'

A new set of five figures has arrived in Japan, and they're pretty neat. They loop like capsule figures but the packaging shows that they may hang on shelves in Japan as a quick impulse buy. A Star Rod rip cord is included, and when the figure is fed through it at speed, it will send the figure roarin' across the floor! So far I can only see they're from Nintendo/HAL.

A pic of the packaging lies after the break.

Auction Crawler: Big Head Mode

This Big Head Mario and Yoshi game is very odd, and even though I have one in the box, I'm still not sure how it's played. Often, you'll see these Mario and Yoshi figures outside of the set go for ridiculous amounts. So, the auction price is a steal just for the figures, but contains the whole game. 2500yen with 1 day left.

Super Mario All-Stars complete plush set - Some tagged - 3000yen, < 1 day left.
SMW Stationary set with figure stamps in box - 1000yen, 3 days.

Club Nintendo Final Rewards

Along with a slew of digital downloads, the physical rewards for Club Nintendo's final days have been revealed. Then, the site promptly went down. Still, you can gather all your pins for coins and have a plan of attack for when it does come back up.

Auction Crawler: Mini-plushes with magnetic personalities

This is the complete set as I know it of Super Mario World 2 Yoshi's Island mini magnet plushes that came in capsules. A very odd set of merchandise, but one of the only actual pieces we could really call Kamek (along with the figural stamp set from the same game). The super-deformed figures are scrunched in their capsules along with a set sheet. If I could get to mine right now I would confirm that this is indeed the full set, but I believe my memory does serve here. 5000yen for the set with 2 days left.

Mario Lucky Coin Game - 4800yen, 3 days.
Complete Luigi's Mansion set from Auto-Toy - 4000yen BID, 4800yen BIN, < 7 hours left, may renew with no bids.
Lot of dotgraphics Mario stages - 18,000yen, 2 days.
New set of four Mario gashapon feat. Bowser Jr. - 1080yen BID, 1296yen BIN. 1 day left.

Empty's Chara-Forme Chrom is a chibi warrior

So this #nendoroidnotnendoroid figure comes from the company "empty", who calls their big0headed chibi-style figures "chara-formes". They have nabbed the license for Falchion's Master, Chrom, and intend to release him unto the world this May. You can pre-order at several major importers. Aim for around $30 pre-shipping.

Link to the Past comic headed to stores

LttP Comic

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.

Truforce Collectibles launches a Kickstarter for an X figure

This is an interesting approach. Instead of making an X figure we've all seen before, the folks at the hope-to-be-established-soon Truforce Collectibles has re-imagined X as a more modern figure, perhaps what X would look like in a Mega Man X9 capacity. Please?
$80 is the asking price, but you don;t get much by backing. Doesn't say anything about Kickstarter packaging or any bonus, just getting it before dealers do. At the $210 mark, backers get the original figure, and a "Test-Armor Variant", along with a print and a shirt.

Here's the Kickstarter link.

Certainly unconventional, but I like the approach and it's always good to have more manufacturers with game licenses making stuff! Plus, they're going after an official license!

X-Plus Mega Man figure is large and about to charge

At 13" tall, this is one of the largest X figure released, or about to release. This comes out in March for about $75, but AmiAmi's regular pre-order discount makes it a more manageable $55.

New Mario Stand figures out now

Mario, Wiggler, Peach and Toad, and Bowser Jr. in the Clown Car complete this set, known as the Super Mario Solid Mario Collection Vol. 1. The set from Takara Tomy Arts looks great and is fairly cheap at 300yen per capsule! Who doesn't want a Bowser Jr. right now anyway!

Thanks to Sphacks and MarioManic!

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.

First 4 Figures reveals Modern Super Sonic

Revealed at the Weston Super Sonic convention. Preorders set to open sometime this year.

Toon 'dorf

New Zelda Windwaker Series in-coming, starting with Ganondorf! Pre-orders go live Tuesday 20th Jan 2015 only at! This is a new range so all new low numbers are available. See you then!

As usual, a live countdown will be happening on their Facebook page. See you then and good luck getting a low number!

Koopa and Kinopio Kontrollers Koming to Kyoto...


...and pretty much everywhere else in Japan. Set for release March 12 for 3,619¥. It's unknown if these will be heading stateside as we're still waiting on the Yoshi remote.

With re-sellers snatching up Amiibos and the recently announced Majora's Mask New 3DS, I suggest pre-ordering ASAP.

Get a Majora's Mask pin when you pre-order Codename STEAM

Pre-order Codename S.T.E.A.M. at Gamestop and get a Majora's Mask pin as a bonus. Cause that makes sense.

New Nintendo 3DS XL Majora's Mask Edition

A gorgeous limited edition Majora's Mask New Nintendo 3DS XL was announced today along with the announcement that the system will launch on Feb. 13th. Get your F5 key ready . . . because nobody has it up for pre-order yet.

Super Mario Amiibo is your next set of Amiibo

Mario, Luigi, Peach, Bowser, and Toad make up this set . . . so far. Announced for the compatibility for Mario Party 10, this set will obviously have many other uses. Smash Bros. Amiibo can be used in MP10, but data must be deleted. Meh. Toad will also be retroactively compatible with Captain Toad Treasure Tracker. Yay!

Amiibo Wave 4, and a happy announcement

Robin (male version), Lucina, Pac-Man, Wario, Ness, and Charizard make up this round. Also, Bill Trinnen let slip that Marth, at the very least, would be re-released later this year. So, don't go spending over $100 just yet!
