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.
