Mega Yarn Yoshi is the latest madcap idea from Nintendo to expand its line of amiibo toys-to-life figurines and this time they've really outdone themselves.

This gargantuan monster stands at a smidgen over eight inches tall, dwarfing its standard-sized Yarn Yoshi compadres who stand at just three and a half inches. As such we felt it our duty to give this giant amiibo the respect it deserves in a number of different ways.

First of all we have your usual unboxing, where this reporter was lucky enough to see this wonderful thing up close and personal, and now you can too!

But that's not all; we also have a special surprise video that we think you should check out just underneath. It's not something we've ever done before so we hope you get a kick out of it.
