World’s First Mario Action Figure Coming This May

Despite being one of the most recognizable video game characters of all time, Mario has apparently never had an action figure.

S.H. Figuarts is planning on releasing the first full-sized action Mario figure this May–yes, I know, when I heard this I called B.S. But the kicker here is that Nintendo has released a variety of miniature Mario statues or small collectibles (think: Happy Meal toys, etc.) before in the past, but never any with shiftable limbs or a compatible diorama set. Bluefin Tamashii Nations USA released the image above to give you an idea of what the final figurine will look like.

The price for a figurine will be $25.99, and the diorama will cost $19.99. Personally, that seems a bit steep–I think I’m just going to stick with my Happy Meal Mario Kart toy instead.
