Kirby history in keychains

This set by Takara Tomy Arts is being released for Kirby Triple Deluxe, but as you can see it's more of a Kirby history set, marking some of the best poses of Kirby and friends over the years. If you get a full box of them (~2700yen), you are guaranteed the full set of keychains. Otherwise, they're blind boxed and therefore evil.

These Club Nintendo Japan pins are pretty . . . shiny . . . so shiny . . .

Zelda, Kirby, and Pikmin pins are the new merchandise items from Club Nintendo Japan. Since Mario already got a set of four pins, he's had his time in the sun. Time to give some love to other franchises, and what love it is. These pins are gorgeous, and only 250 points each!

Super Mario 3D World Gashapon sends double the cute

In Japan in late July, this set of gashapon will release for about 200 yen each. The set will include each of the playable characters as cats, a double cherry Mario, and the pièce de résistance, a Goomba in "Kuribo's Skate". Or is it a Kuribo in Goomba's skate? Man, do I ever love Takara TOMY Arts' dedication to the Mario series. There's always something ready to make me spend my cash.

News on those Monopolys featuring Nintendo, and a Zelda Puzzle

Pokemonopoly. Zeldopoly. Yes yes yes. Having already collected two Nintendopolys and simply loving the little pewter items from both, I can't wait for these - and more!
Info coming from Southern Hobby Supply details the items further. August 21 this year is when both are slated to arrive to that online store, so that is a good indication when most stores would be getting them. Assume slightly longer for brick-and-mortar retail to snag them.
Also shown was a 550-piece puzzle featuring The Legend of Zelda. The prototype art is from Ocarina of Time, but is obviously subject to change. 18" x 24" is the scale, it it releases August 15th.

Super Mario Bros. Special OST on cassette - 1200yen, 5 days.
Look at this crazy thing. Looks like they lost the artwork insert, but the tape is still playable. Most of this release is spoken Japanese, but does contain some remixed Mario music. This was released in fewer quantities than the CD. Wild.
