Furuta keeps the choco egg figure train going with Super Mario 3D World

I love these figures. They're like little puzzles, they're small, they're great with detail, painted well, and always manage to fit in characters that have never had merch before. Furuta sets us up for another round of these in October this year. Any bets on the secret figure? I'm betting Cat Peach.

Cat Luigi
Cat Toad

Yoshi's New Island Gashapon

Yoshi's New Island has released unto the world, and now some merch has unexpectedly shown up. Why is it unexpected? The Yoshi series has largely been overlooked by the merch companies, which is sad. However, now we have a bunch of Yoshi transformations as little gashapon keychains. NCSX has the whole set up for pre-order, but I'm telling you now you can probably beat that price by waiting.

Paper Mario Sticker Star Plush Blocks

I love that the Paper Mario series is finally getting some decent merchandise. This time we see plush blocks straight out of the game, and you can even peel the "stickers" off the blocks! Sweetness. These are quite large too. Bigger than the sound blocks from a while ago.

A Mario Coin Shooter and Jump World

I thought these were modern pachinko machines, but instead, the yellow one is a coin shooter and the orange one has you jumping little marbles up to the top of that little platforming simulator . . . device.
Check the jump for Epoch's packaging of both.

Mario Kart 8 Marble Loop Race

Epoch has stepped their marble race up a notch with this Mario Kart 8 set, making the marbles go all ant-grav in celebration of the Wii U game sweeping the nations.

New Super Mario Bros. U Projector eggs

Remember these? Takara Tomy Arts must have had good sales from them, as they have released some new egg projectors based on New Super Mario Bros. U. Again showing art from the game, this set is really only distinguishable from the last via the tags and three distinctly colored Yoshi eggs. Pink, Yellow, and Blue eggs all show the baby Yoshis that they contain. Also, Bowser Jr., Peach, and Mario scenes can be seen.

Mario crystal stamps are some high-grade stampers

Out now from Ensky, these crystal stampers are pretty large high-quality stamps. At around 350yen each, they're not cheap, either. Packaging display and more pics after the break.

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.

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!
