Video: Toy Pizza Take a Look at Tamashii Nations' New Super Mario Action Figure

Posted by Jowi Meli

"The very best Mario action figure ever"

The toy & collectible fanatics at Toy Pizza take a look at the newest Super Mario action figure in today's episode, created from a partnership between Japanese collectible brand Tamashii Nations and Bandai. Evidently they like it, heralding it as "the very best Mario action figure ever" a mere seven seconds in.

Mario doesn't have to stand on his own, however, as his posable action figure can be bought alongside other accessories from the S.H. Figuarts line. These include the iconic Super Mushrooms, "?" Blocks, Green Shells, and delightfully shiny golden Coins that Mario fans are so familiar with. If you're interested in snagging a first-run figure for yourself — which includes four free accessories and costs £19.71/$22.58 — feel free to put a pre-order in on Amazon in anticipation of the 25th June release.

Keep in mind that it's definitely worth checking out the video below for more than just the new figure; the guys at Toy Pizza also go over Mario's past history with collectibles, including a particularly awesome set of 1989 Happy Meal toys tying into the then-new Super Mario Bros. 3.

What do you think of this look into Mario's track record with figures and collectibles? Are you interested in the Tamashii Nations piece on display?

I just realized that the little Mario Jumping over a Koopa cake topper I had when I was a kid... is valuable! (Or was it my brothers cake topper? O-o)

$22.58!? I could get a 3DS game for that! At first I thought that Mario was siting in a throne made of coins. Now that would be worth it!

I remember going to McDonald's during that SMB3 promotion, and I really wish I knew what happened to the toy I got.

Mine arrived from AmiAmi today, with the one accessory pack I also preordered, the pipe/shell.
It is a really nice figure, but there are a couple faults. One, he does not seem to balance well. Which wouldn't be a problem, with the display base that holds him up in mid-air, etc, but that brings me onto the second major fault. That display base doesn't come with the default figure, it comes in the bricks accessory pack, which feels a little off, considering this kind of figure usually comes with the display base.

Now I'll have to wait for the order I just put in for that other accessory pack. So remember, if you're buying this, you need at Least the brick pack as well.

The figure itself comes with A mushroom, a coin, a question block, a display base to stop the coin falling over, and Mario with his hands as fists.

SH Figuarts is slowly ruining my life. I'm a huge sailor moon fan and I've been buying those plus the zero statues like candy. Now I'm branching off to Zyurangers and Shikengers. I've also picked up the good smile link and samus figma. I need an intervention...and more bookshelves.

@Ryu_Niiyama Tell me about it. Not too long ago, I picked up the SH Figuarts Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers Green Ranger (aka Zyuranger's Dragonranger), and I have been so impressed by the incredible detail that I have been tempted to try to get the rest of the Mighty Morphin' team.

Sadly, it doesn't fit the style of the cute Luigi figure I have on preorder. Luigi wins.

Back to topic, I'm going to see how it goes if there are any games I really need! :)

Can you even move the arms and legs ? (When I was in to figures I hated the type you couldn't even do anything with).

The KNEX ones actually look like toys.
