Check you favorite import shop for pre-orders on Marth, Mega Man, Link, and Kirby. N with Reshiram is a Pokemon Center exclusive.
Puzzles, handbags, danglers, figures, reflectors (?), and plushes. Just check out this link for a snapshot of the amount of stuff pouring out of Japan. The real stars are the four plushes. Sadly no Judd yet, but those keychain figures are awesome. Why are all the little trinkety items so expensive with Splatoon stuff?
For any backers angry about con-goers getting an exclusive before release, Truforce will be emailing a link so we can order one if we want.
And it appears the regular edition will be there for sale also... Kinda annoying, but not as bad as the whole Mighty No. 9 fiasco.
Evidently someone over at Bioworld has been paying attantion to the unofficial Zelda jewelry being sold on Etsy, as all three of these new necklaces (and one keychain) may seem like nothing new to hardcore Zelda fans. Still, it's always nice to have licensed merch!
The first, the Hylian Shield and Master Sword combo, is very nicely done. The sword can even slide into the shield (see pic after the jump). Next is a fairy in a bottle. Rather than having a little puffball with wings, it's a plastic figure suspended on a little plastic pole. Last is the Hyrule Eagle Insignia necklace. I also picked up a heavy metal Hylian Shield keychain which is quite durable and could probably hurt someone in a pinch. This had released previously, but was nice to pick up with the set.
The necklaces are $10.50 each at the Hot Topic I went too, and the keychain was $6.50. They also had Nintendo costume items out and some new shirts, including a Majora's Mask tee, a shirt with all the masks from Majora's Mask, and a cool Game Boy Color shirt.
Oh my gosh! Look at these cute plushes! I'll take five of everything! Wait . . . these are just kits? I have to build them myself?
That's right, this new beautiful set of plushes unfortunately requires your skill (or lack thereof) to manifest. The kits come with all the relevant pieces to assemble one, and instructions - in Japanese - to do so. *Sigh*
Maybe someone will sell the assembled kits at a decent price? Please?
The coin is 2000 stars, silver-plated, features Mario and Luigi, and has a little velvet bag to keep it in. The Club Nintendo logo is on the back.
Stare. Gawk. Hope to one day attain. Pre-order at BBTS.
Oh man. That Judd plush is talking to my wallet right now. And Squid Sister plushes? I would have geeked out over Inklink Boy and Girl, but this is amazing! No word on when these will be out or where to order, but we'll keep you posted for sure! Seen at TGS.
Also, check out these acrylic keychains coming out in December this year.
Wave 1: (September 10) Pikachu, Mario, Peach, Link, Donkey Kong, Yoshi, Bowser

Wave 3: (coming soon) Kirby, Charizard, Zero Suit Samus, Greninja, Ike, Lucina, Lucario
If the packaging is different I'll definitely have to pick up a few. Here's hoping they use the JP box art!
Check out the new Child-size Mega Man exclusive to Halloweencostumes.com, and they also sent Ash from Pokemon! Great stuff!
Mega Man's costume looks great and my son wears it every day. The buster is the best part, but the way the "briefs" go over the pants to make the look? Priceless! We had to safety pin the leg armor, as the costume may be a bit big, but I always buy a bit big so they can get a fw years of play out of them.
Ash's costume is very nice too, as the mask is made of hard plastic and is not flimsy like you'd expect. Both are well-priced, and the quality is high.
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.
Patterns of Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong, and more are headed to Joann's Fabric Stores across the country. The designs shown are very intriguing, and some no-sew fleece blanket kits will also be available. Neat!
Yes . . . I'm going to make you click a link to get to that pic. The secret figure of this set is . . .
That was the weirdest title I've written on the site so far. Heh. So, you know those plush tires cushions thingies that came out a while back. They're adding another, featuring Rosalina and Peach. Out now in the prize machines in Japan!
Taito has been killing it lately, and adding this just knocks it out of the park. This Gold Mario figure will stand nearly 12" tall and is coming out in late December.
More giant plushes are coming from Taito, this time it's Boo. Out now, so look for auctions/imports!
Four new somewhat commemorative plates have spawned to usher in the 30th Anniversary celebration of
our nation's history Super Mario Bros. Each plate is painstakingly emblazoned with imagery from the historical event game series. The ceramic melamine plates each come in boxes featuring the plate's artwork, and can now be purchased as a set in Japan, but for a limited time only! You know, for as long as supplies last.
See the actual plates after the jump!
