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.

Mario Nendoroid was inevitable, but still very welcome

Once we saw Luigi, we knew we would see a Mario Nendoroid eventually. That eventuality was revealed at Wonder Festival 2014. No other info, but he looks great!

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!

Thanks PigmaskPrivate!

Our very own nfalax has already cracked the code.

Based on this code, look for which number is underlined to find the figure you want. The code may be different, but the underline is the key.
1-Bowser Jr
4-Waluigi (Most likely)
1-Green Toad
0-Donkey Kong

Kirby's friends and foes are the stars of the next plush set from San-ei

A new Kirby set from San-ei called the "Kirby Adventure Series Plush Set" has four friends/foes from the Kirby series,, but no Kirby! While it's odd, Kirby has so many plush iterations now it could probably fill a swimming pool. We have seen King Dedede, Meta Knight, and Waddle DOo before (though Waddle Doo had a sword in his plush debut), but we welcome Chef Kawasaki to his very first plush rendition.

The cat's out of the bag now - Rosalina plush from San-ei

We rarely see unlockable characters hit the merchandise scene, mainly because Nintendo wants to keep them secret. This is why we still have no Dry Bowser merchandise. Still, during the hype train of Super Mario 3D World, Nintendo showed that Rosalina was playable before release. As she has been used by many players the world over, San-ei has seen fit to release Rosalina in a dress and cat suit.
