Not long ago a credible rumour emerged of Gold and Silver Mario amiibo toys being prepared for sale, with web pages discovered showing documentation for health and safety testing on these figures, specifically in the Super Mario design. The pages related to Nintendo of America, and it now seems that the gold figure is certainly on the way.

Below is one of multiple images that readers have sent on to us (thanks to all that got in touch) showing a Walmart ad that's been spotted.


It's pretty self explanatory in revealing it to be exclusive to the retailer, though we don't know what's happening with the silver model as yet. We also don't know, yet, whether these special amiibo are coming to Europe.

Would you be keen to grab a gold Mario amiibo, or do you prefer the normal figures?
