FIRST 4 Figures TANOOKI MARIO 15-Inch Statue


Tanooki_SuitBefore the age of next-gen consoles like the Playstation or the X-BOX most of us started playing video games through Nintedo’s SNES or the Famicom. Of course, you wouldn’t be a gamer if you haven’t played a single Super Mario Bros. game. When Super Mario Bros. 3 was released, gamers were given new power ups like Mario’s Tanooki Suit that enables players to Fly (similar to the Super Leaf power up) and can be a statue when the player holds the down arrow key and the B button at the same time.

Now you could own a piece of video game history as toy manufacturer First 4 Figures is releasing a 15 inch Mario in his Tanooki Suit. The Tanooki Mario is made from high quality polystone resin, complete with hand finished detailing and paint work. The Tanooki Mario is limited only to 2000 pieces worldwide. First4Figures are already sold out of the Tanooki Mario and new orders are put on a wait list. The Tanooki Mario is retailed at $199.99 (P9000).
