Taito really like to light up your rooms the Mario way, previously making some Boo lights. Totally called this in that last article by the way . . .
Now, they have moved on to a popular item, the Super Star, or, as I know it, Starman.
Very similar to the older Starman light from Banpresto, but much easier to attain . . . for now.
Drool at the picture, because there is no other info other than that it will come from Bandai, supposedly within the month of May. Heh.
Thanks Sherry B!
These ingenious plushes from Taito are out in Japan now. Pluck your Pikmin, then stuff it in the plush block of ground, and pluck it all over again. Hit the break to see the tag.
"Chibi Stand" Pikmin, in red, blue, or yellow flavors, are just about the cutest thing ever. These Pikmin will hold, and may well take off with, your stuff! Out now in Japan.
Banpresto has plushified the rotund giant in a size that heads will be happy to snuggle up with. He will be aiding you in your trips to dreamland come June this year. He will cost around $40, but keep in mind a cushion this large will take some extra cash to ship. I'd save about double that price if I wanted one from Japan.
They've been teasing, and now the reveal! Mario will be the first in Bandai's S.H. Figuarts line (big surprise, I know), and he will be out in May of this year in Japan.
Revealed at the Nuremburg Toy Fair, Mario comes with crazy articulation, and two diorama kits will be available for purchase to hash out a scene with our favorite plumber/hero.
No word yet on price or release dates for North America.
Furuta has expanded its Nintendo license to include characters from Animal Crossing New Leaf, and that means we get chocolate covered eggs and lots of anthropomorphic animal friends. This set will come in late February and include the following characters:
Any bets on the secret? Obviously, they have several characters left to make at least one more set of figures.
Thanks Melda and Valendorf!
In late April, you will have this sword if you pre-order today. 15,500yen is all you need. Ya know, Japanese RPG stars are so lucky. They don't have to pay for the best swords! Granted, the responsibility that comes with them is pretty overwhelming.
Expect this to cost a ton in shipping as well . . .
Capcom is holding a raffle to get all sorts of neat prizes featuring Felynes from Monster Hunter dressed as Mega Man, Morrigan, and more. There are also pins featuring Mega-Man-sprite-style Capcom characters, with a hero and villain pack. Mats, earphone plug stoppers, mugs, pouches, and even a Mega Man Felyne statue is painted and metal flavors.
Bandai has released scans of a Lucario figure, which was expected to be a D-arts figure like the other Pokemon releases in that line. However, he's been added to the S.H. Figurarts line instead. He does appear to work well with previous releases, per the shot above.
Appears he may have an Aura Sphere accessory as well, but I'll wait for official details.
Pre-order now for late May
The Engineer, both Red and Blu, is now available on the Gaming Heads Shop. Exclusive version has his mini combat sentry turret that even has illuminating beacon light. The Gunslinger, along with the regular edition's golden wrenches are included as well. $220 regular, $270 exclusive.
Fever? Chill? You can be one step closer to building a Dr. Mario medical bag with these two products from KD System. An LED display right on the top will read an accurate temperature. A Yoshi-themed or Mario-themed thermometer can help you diagnose your problem, unless your problem is a drained wallet. Each one of these will set you back around $15. See Yoshi after the break.
For 400 coins on the Club Nintendo Japan site. If a player buys the game, they can get it for 250 coins. Lucky . . .
We knew this would happen. How could they not make cuddly plushes of all of the cast of Super Mario 3D World? Nope, San-ei could not resist, and so the world is a little cuddlier. They also are releasing a Nabbit plush along with this set.
All available April of 2014! Pics of each after the break.
K'Nex doesn't let up. More figures, more sets, more baddies, more tracks. Money, money, money, money. We at VGMM don't take kindly to blind packaging, so we are usurping that ridiculousness by revealing the codes of these characters!
513280 - Bullet Bill
013280 - Cheep Cheep (double underline)
013280 - Mario
053280 - Bowser
051280 - Pink Yoshi
051380 - Toad
051320 - Diddy Kong

Again, the numbers may be different on your bag but it's the underlines that count!
Thanks Ali Mangoo!
February is the game's release, and this "Dracula's Tomb Premium Edition" will be the best option for Europeans. Yes, only available from GAME, this edition will only have 30,000 released. The tomb box coffin thingy will include a hardcover artbook, a steelbook for the game, four painted figures, and possibly other goodies before release.
