Wow! A Link costume! Wait a minute . . .

Well, I've always known that there is a market for a Link costume. Now, someone has usurped that pesky and expensive licensing and gone for the look of Link, but calling it an "Elf Warrior". No sword or shield, but the rest is there. The top one was priced at $60, while the child-size was $50. Wow.

Worth mentioning - the Super Mario All-Star Plush Collection

I wasn't real excited for this, but it is worth mentioning that this set comes out in December. I thought it was a re-run of previous releases but upon further inspection it does appear that several have different poses. Just nobody new. These are likely still available for pre-order from your favorite import shop, and is a good second-chance run of quality plushes. May be a nightmare for completionists though.

Finally, some official coin purses

FOr years now, there have been boatloads of coin purses featuring Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, and more. Now we actually see some official ones. SO, if you were holding out for a real one, now you can finally splurge.

Mario plushes go big time

45cm (or nearly 18 inches) of Mario from Taito. Yeah, they already released a giant Mario alongside a giant Yoshi, but now Fire Mario joins the mix. What we need is a giant Bowser . . .

Link on Loftwing may be loftiest price for F4F statue ever

"Our biggest Zelda piece ever!" exclaims the First 4 Figures Facebook poster. Bigger than Zant? Bigger than Ganondorf? That means the accompanying price tag may be the biggest sticker shock Zelda statue collectors have seen so far. We'll all find out when pre-orders go live at the F4F website on Tuesday Oct. 28th.

Dr. Robotnik has erected a statue of himself

22 inches tall and limited to 1,000 pieces worldwide, here is Sonic's nemesis standing proud with some chaos emeralds. $400 and set to arrive Q2 of 2015. He comes with extra hands too, with or without the emeralds. You'd think that would have been the exclusive, but not this time. There is also a contest going on at their Facebook page to win him outright.

Goliath statue to release for 2K's Evolve

Nearly 30 inches tall, weighing in at 35 pounds, this sucker lives up to his name. Nothing compared to the life-size version seen at E3 this year, but still mighty impressive. The Goliath from Triforce is limited to 500 pieces worldwide and comes with a Goliath-sized price tag as well, hitting $750. But that's not all. At New York Comic Con this year, people will be able to pre-order the Savage Goliath variant that is even more limited to 150 pieces worldwide and will cost $800. The variant will have some red paint to accentuate the skin. Expensive paint job. Coming Q2 of 2015. It's a gamble, sure, seeing as how it's a new IP and the game will be out before the statue. Maybe that's why pre-orders are non-refundable. You also better watch the shipping on it, as it's classified as oversized. Meaning not cheap.

You can pre-order now

Amiibo, wave 2
