That's what a lot of Mario items looks like

Mario's face has been on more merchandise than you can imagine, making it hard – not to mention expensive – for dedicated fans to track down those must-have pieces. That makes the achievement of 11-year old Oscar Bown from the UK all the more incredible, as he's amassed a Mario collection containing over 1,000 unique items.

With vinyl figures, soundtrack CDs, rare Japanese merchandise, stacks of games and more items than we have room to describe, this is truly a collection of the highest order. Oscar, all the staff at Nintendo Life take their Mario hats off to you: you're truly a Mario master.
