Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
Over the weekend I really felt like playing some games yet I couldn’t find my charger anywhere… I’m going to buy one on the way home today!
Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…
|From ‘Super Mario’ comes a Nendoroid of Mario himself, following on from the previously released Nendoroid Luigi! He comes with both a smile and a serious expression, as well as various optional parts that bring out the world of Mario, such as some blocks, a coin and a Super Mushroom! ‘Brake’ parts for when he suddenly stops as well as dash parts for running are both included, and a background to display behind him is also included.
He also comes with two enemies to display with him – a Buzzy Beetle and a Boo, which allow for all sorts of fun scenes from the game to be recreated in Nendoroid size! Some crossed arm parts for use on Nendoroid Luigi are also included, allowing for a classic pose of the Mario Brothers together! Bring out the Super Mario World in your collection!
At long last the older of the world famous plumber brothers is joining the Nendoroids! ☆
His blue overalls, red shirt and ‘M’ initialled red hat have all been shrunk into Nendoroid size! Plus his round belly makes for a rather unique Nendoroid design – everything that makes Mario himself has been faithfully preserved to ensure that fans won’t be disappointed! Just like Nendoroid Luigi, his box also comes with a inner background sheet based on the Super Mario World!! ♪
For example, he comes with a Super Mushroom, which can be displayed in his fans or just beside him! The red head with white spots might make it look a little unsafe to eat, but those cute little round eyes let everyone know he is safe to eat! This is of course the mushroom that changes Mario into Super Mario in the game! ♪
He also comes with a… Buzzy Beetle! ★
A shiny shell with eerie red glowing eyes…!
Somehow I think he looks cuter than normal in this Nendoroid form! ♥︎
You can pose him together with Mario in a pose like this!
Anyone who has played Mario before will recognise this scene! (´∀｀)
Just looking at it causes the BGM to get stuck in my head! ♪
Even the underside of the Buzzy Beetle has been sculpted in detail!
You can really feel the love when areas like this are made with such care! ♥︎
Next up we have…
The round, floating and rather annoying ghosty…
A Boo! ★
He might be annoying sometimes but you just can’t hate such a cute little creature! I think he’s one of my favorite characters in the Mario world!
The fact that they’re so shy might be what attracts me to them… ♥︎
Stopping and starting over and over again is something that happens a lot with Boos around, so he also comes with parts to show him quickly braking and changing directions! ♪
These have been aptly named ‘brake effect parts’! (｡･ω･)ﾉﾞ
Not only that, but he comes with an additional pair of folded arms for Luigi to create the scene above too! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ
This of course means that you can create a pose that really shows off the link between the brothers! * Note that Nendoroid Luigi isn’t included in any way! Only the extra arm parts!
(・∀・) “He also comes with these parts!”
We’re joined by Mario’s planner, Kyojin!
The blocks! Blocks attached to the background!
(・∀・) “He can even jump…
…and a coin will come out!”
The game has jumped out into the figure world!! (´□｀｡)
(・∀・) “You actually need to move the block up, and place the coin on top, just like this!”
By the way, I stuck the block parts onto the background for the sake of the photos today, but the actual product will come with parts to connect them on!
(・∀・) “That’s right! The parts are currently in development, but here is how the 3D data looks at present!”
Oooh! I see!!
The parts will connect into a Nendoroid stand! (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)
I can see there is a place to add the background into as well! ♪
(・∀・) “Of course, making use of the optional parts from the previously released Nendoroid Luigi allows for even more fun poses!”
The pipe, Bullet Bill and Goomba were all included with Luigi! ♪
The Nendoroid stand included with Mario is the same green and rectangular stand included with Luigi, allowing for a number of parts to be displayed with him! (´∀｀。)
(・∀・) “It’s fun to recreate scenes from the game, but it’s also fun to make your very own Super Mario World in Nendoroid size!”
It really is a load of fun!! <○><○>
I’m sure fans can think of all sorts of fun original stories! ★
(・∀・) “You really need to experience the fun for yourself!”
So cute you can’t help but want to play with him! ♥︎
He’ll be up for preorder later today!!
Orders from the GSC ONLINE SHOP will include 3 extra coin parts as a bonus! ♪
This will allow for more speedy scenes! *ding* *ding* *ding*
Keep the bonus in mind when ordering!! (σ・∀・)σ
