Yup, went to E3 this year. Third year. They had those giant over-sized bags available again, from three different developers, so it was tough to see the small stuff. This is a post about all of the swag I saw. Lots of shirts . . . again.
This is a very rare set of figures from Mega Man X3 featuring Bit and Byte. Sigma is also there. The seller has it for auction starting at a single yen. Less than a cent. Up for three days. Good luck!

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.
Pushmo World was just announced, and hidden in that announcement was a showing of some new merchandise featuring Mallo. A rubber keychain, a plush with a zip pouch and place for ID, and a traditional plush. See the rest after the break.
That's one big pile of pink. Ten Kirby figures, all with different poses, can be piled up, stacked, and arranged in various shapes. The set also contains a warp star. The mass attack is coming in late July, and is called a Tsumu Tsumu set in Japan.
A new "Puzzle Circuit Set" has appeared from Mobi Games, and looks a lot like a certain old slot car set from Mario Party. That, or the DK Mine Cart set. Either way, it's been modernized for use with Mario Kart 7. The track has as many as eight configurations. See the back of the package with all the info after the break.
Japan Auto Toy is at it again, andthis time Mario and Luigi have fire power and come with different-colored Toads. DK also makes an appearance. Nice boxes and packaging, too. See that after the break.
Thanks to the eagle of of tl2005us!
Pre-orders start now for an August release of all of these plushes. Isabelle is nearly 14" tall, while the other set is around three inches each. Isabelle, Tom Nook, Kapp'n and a Gyroid make up the set. All these years and it's still weird to see Nintendo stuff coming from Sega. Heh.
Altair, Ezio, Connor, and Edward have been stylized for their appearance as POP! Vinyl figures. Funko has kept all the details to identify each assassin, and then made then around 3 inches tall. These are out now, and several retail shops and online shops have them ready to buy.
A Mario Clock from the Super Mario World era has cropped up on YJA. 3000yen and 2 days left. Apparently, the alarm does not sound but the clock works. Nice display piece though.

These will be available to pre-order on May 19th for a Q1 2015 release.
Standard Ryu statue - $325 for the basic model. Polystone 1:4 scale statue. Limited, but the number has yet to be announced.

Tatakai Kōka Exclusive - This statue features battle damage on Ryu's gi and gloves. He also comes with a different head. Please let it be his battle-damaged face from SFII! Limited to 250 pieces at $350.
Check these POP! Vinyl figures out from Epic Mickey 2. Featuring Mickey with his brush and Oswald with his remote. Out now!
Man, I'm tired of only hearing about Earthbound all the time. What about all the other great games for the SNES? This time I'll do Secret of Mana. Some of these items weren't made for the SNES game per se, but from one Rabite to another, they're all precious. And much harder to find then just wandering outside your village.
Above is a Rabite Plush Strap Screen cleaner:
Metal Rabite Clip with Phone Card:
Secret of Mana Euro Magazine- Mana art on the cover. Kind of neat for unofficial, and a nice vintage item:
Sword of Mana (Remake of the very first game on the original game boy) Mana Blue Edition GBA System:
The Good Smile Company is apparently obsessed with Nintendo right now. First Isabelle, then Luigi, then Link, and now a Pokemon Trainer. This time though, the Nendoroid may only be available at the Pokemon Center, meaning its exclusivity may leave it out of the reach of several fans. It's set to be 4500 yen, but that is for the lucky ones that can snag it on site. This will be able to be pre-ordered between May 24th and June 29th for a September 27th release.
The Nendoroid is planned to have all sorts of goodies, including three different faces, four arms, five wrists, and three legs. The Pokedex, Poke Ball, and Master Ball should also be great for posing. The three Pokemon from Super Smash Bros. Brawl - Squirtle, Bulbasaur, and Charmander - are also going to accompany him in his quest to steal your heart.
Takara is coming out with - you guessed it - Mario Kart 8 racers. Face it, it was inevitable. Five racers in the standard kart are here, goingfor 300yen a piece in capsules. Look for them in late August.
