Super Mario Bros. 3 was a title to be remembered for many reasons. Not only was it a great new Super Mario game in general, but it introduced one of the coolest transformations for the plumber hero: The Tanooki Suit.
Upon obtaining that suit, gamers everywhere would just start running then take to the skies, only to transform into a statue and plummet. Teaming up with Nintendo, First 4 Figures will be selling these limited edition Tanooki Mario figures, and for an additional price you can even purchase the Tanooki Leaf too!
Reaching a height of 15 inches atop the classic lawn green block, the Tanooki Mario figure alone will be selling for $199.99. Accompanied by the Tanooki Leaf atop a classic Question Mark Box, the price comes to a total of $239.99. The exclusive Tanooki Mario (which is the one with the higher price, clearly) also features Tanooki Mario wearing a nice red scarf.
The exclusive Tanooki Mario with the Tanooki Leaf is limited to 750 pieces worldwide, whereas the scarf-less Tanooki Mario is limited to 2000 pieces worldwide. These figures will be available during the first quarter of 2014, so be sure to keep your eyes out for them!
What are your thoughts on these new figures? Personally, I would have preferred the Cat Suit, but maybe that’s a bit too modern. Leave a comment down below and share your thoughts!
