Nintendo has teamed up with Jakks Pacific to bring to life the "ultimate" It's-a me, Mario action figure.

Kids of all ages can have endless fun with this 12-inch tall Mario, packed with over 30 phrases and sound effects from the iconic character's video game history.

Listen to phrases like "woo-hoo", "it's-a me" and many other others, while trigger points on Mario's hands, feet, and hat activate additional sound effects and phrases.

You can even pose Mario in five different ways to unlock game music (there are five tracks all up). Lifting Mario quickly - a bit like LEGO Mario - will also activate a jumping sound.

This poseable figure has 15 points of articulation all up and requires 2 AA batteries (batteries included).

You can purchase talking Mario in the US for the SRP of $49.99. It's available from Amazon, GameStop, Walmart and Target.
