Pikmin stationary brings the cute to all your notes

Love the little stamps with Pikmin posing on them. The tape is littered with Pikmin as well. I'm glad the seller provided a pic of what was in the little eraser bottle. Sadly, they were those shaped rubber band things that seem to be so popular these days. I thought they were little Pikmin rubber erasers. I would have purchased as I has seen it had that been the case.

Capcom may have you seeing all-stars with these licensed glasses

Zoff is using the popularity of Capcom's 30th Anniversary to push some special glasses. Each temple is adorned with various Capcom favorites, like Mega Man, Ghosts N' Goblins, Phoenix Wright, and Resident Evil. Each pair comes with a case and cleaning cloth, which are also decorated. 5200yen each, and I'm not sure you could get a prescription to custom fit the frames . . . but how cool are these?

Mario toys around in Japan at McDonald's

McDonald's toys are always the pinnacle of any Happy Meal, and now Mario is the star, but only in Japan. Looks like the toys aren't promoting any specific game, as most of the toys have more to do with "generic" Mario rather than a specific release. Odd, as Super Mario 3D World is right around the corner. Penguin Mario and Boomerang Bro Mario do have more to do with New Super Mario Bros. U than with any other release though. A couple of these, a Mario and a Peach, double as stamps. Cool. Unfortunately, this is the second round of Mario Happy Meal toys not available in the USA.

Thanks gblock!

Super Mario 3D World clings to your wallet

Super Mario 3D World has cats. Cats climb things. To simulate this, Bandai is making some magnets and some clings that fit on the side of your cups. They come in the flavors of each playable character, and are nearly too cute to report on.
Shipping in March 2014. If Luigi, Toad, and Peach are all color-coordinated, why is Mario orange instead of red?
