Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

My circle of friends includes three sets of twins! For some reason all of them are also super good looking, and it’s often interesting to see just how well they synchronize with each other sometimes! (*´▽`*)

But anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at the younger of two famous twin brothers…

Nendoroid Luigi! ☆

In commemoration of ‘THE YEAR OF LUIGI’ comes a Nendoroid of Luigi from Super Mario! He comes with three expressions including his standard expression, a smiling expression and even a surprised expression – allowing you to display Luigi in all sorts of poses!

He also comes with dash and jumping effect parts, as well as a pipe to bring out the atmosphere of the game! Two of the classic enemies Super Mario enemies, the Goomba and Bullet Bill, are both included allowing for various classic scenes from the game to be recreated!

He’s rather cute!! (*´▽`*)

Apologies for the long delay! I know many fans have been waiting since he was announced at the Summer Wonfes earlier this year! The younger of the world’s most famous plumbing brothers is finally joining the Nendoroid series! (`・ω・´)

All of the special characteristics that make him Luigi have been kept in tact, while still ensuring the design fits into the Nendoroid series! A little while back during the design process he was actually a little less Nendoroid and more of the classic Luigi… but since he was joining the Nendoroid series, we decided we had to make sure he fitted into the series nicely!

Needless to say, he has come out looking super adorable! ★

For those who don’t know, 2013 is the 30th anniversary of when Luigi first appeared in a Mario game! The game was released in 1983 as ‘Mario Brothers’!

At the moment you can find it on all sorts of gaming platforms, so I’m sure many of you have played it at some point!

Looking back on the Mario games of the past… you can see how Luigi’s design has slowly developed into what it is today! What started off as a taller, thinner green version of Mario has become a lovely character himself, even in his very own games! (゚ω゚(。_。(゚ω゚(。_。

Personally I like his character in the Luigi’s Mansion’s games! The fact that as more and more games were released his character slowly evolved further and further is a rather interesting thing to consider!

But even now, his biggest trademark is the ‘L’ initialed green hat, which looks lovely in Nendoroid size! ♪

Another lovely thing is that he comes with a huge selection of optional parts to help recreate scenes from the games! This includes enemies such as the Goomba and Bullet Bill, as well as the must-have pipe!

The enemies give Luigi something to fight against, while the pipe brings out the Mario universe perfectly! ♡

Plus… as I’m sure you’ve noticed by now…

(・∀・) “Nendoroid Luigi comes with an inner cardboard sheet with the game world in the background!”

We’re joined by the head planner, Kyojin!

(・∀・) “If you pose him with the background, it really feels just like he’s jumped out of the game…! We had a load of fun using it for the official release photos as well!”

He really is a Nendoroid full of fun! I want to grab him myself for more fun!!
Another thing I’m sure some fans have already noticed…

The Nendoroid Base seems a little different this time too…! ( ゚д゚)

(・∀・) “Yep! Mario is known as the king of horizontal platform games, so we made a special long rectangular base to display him on!”

The green coloring also suits him and the background really nicely! ♪

By the way, what made you pick the Goomba and Bullet Bill as the two enemies to include with him? There must have been so many options to choose from!

(・∀・) “We knew we wanted to include some of the baddies with him, and the classic Goomba was a definite. As for Bullet Bill… he was always a one of my favorites, and I figured he’s work great with the surprised expression!”

Luigi’s “Oh!” surprised expression really brings out his personality!

By the way, even Bullet Bill’s arms are articulated!

The last four photos made a little comic! ★(・ω<)

The Nendoroid really excels at bringing out the feeling of the game!! Not to mention I can think of all sorts of other Nendoroid’s I’d like to display with that pipe!! (ΦωΦ)フフフ…

(・∀・) “By the way, Not only does he come with enemies, he also includes some effect parts!”

Oooh! It looks just like he is running and jumping in the game!! I’ve always wondered why that mysterious smoke exists though. ^^;

(・∀・) “Mysterious smoke? It’s jumping effect parts!! He also comes with dashing effects to help you create all sorts of movements!”

It looks so fluffy!! (o・ω・o)!!
For some reason I really feel like playing a Mario game now…

(・∀・) “It’s the year of Luigi after all! Get hold of some games and celebrate before the end of the year!”

Filled with all sorts of extra parts for loads of fun!
Nendoroid Luigi!

He’ll be up for preorder from tomorrow!
