One of Nintendo’s most beloved and recognized icons is coming to Bandai’s highly successful S.H.Figuarts line of action figure. The colored prototype of Mario himself was spotted recently at the UK Toy Fair. S.H.Figuarts Mario is expected to come out in March, for a very reasonable $20 price tag.
Mario on his own is light on accessories the package will come with a 1up Mushroom, coin, and mystery block. However, a separate play set will be available for he same price that will include a display base, different sizes of Warp zones, another coin, Gumba, and the shell of a Koopa Trooper also for March.
Going forward…it’ll be interesting to see what Bandai has in store for fans and collectors. Where there’s Mario, a Luigi can’t be far behind. And who knows? We could see Princess Peach and Bowser too.
