Start saving coins, Nendoroid Mario pre-orders have begun

It’s only been a few months since Nendoroid Mario was announced back at Wonder Festival 2014 (Summer), but it feels like a year! The wait will still continue for a while longer before he’s released in May 2015, but at least we’re now another step closer. Pre-orders for Mario opened today and he won’t be coming empty handed. Far from it. Despite a somewhat average price of ¥4,167 for a Nendoroid he’s coming packed with accessories!

Mario will be coming along with two expressions (open and closed mouth smile), an oversize green base (with a buch of stand arms), special hands, blocks, coin, backdrop, super mushroom, and special leg parts made to look like he’s either jumping or making a quick stop complete with effect part. Best of all is the crossed arm parts, not just for himself but for Luigi, too! Plus it’s not just Mario in the box, he’ll be joined by a Boo and Buzzy Beetle as well! The backdrop will be more than just free standing card as it’ll also come with its own supports that can suspend the blocks to make them look like they’re floating in the air. 

I feel like the only thing missing is a kart. Kahotan also has photos on the GSC blog that you can see mirrored in the gallery. You can’t get your hands on one just yet, but reserving one now will make sure you have one in May. If you order through the Good Smile shop you’ll also get another three coins, but you’ll be paying a lot for something kinda small like that. Now I have to assume there’s at least one more figure on the way just because Mario and Luigi come with a Goomba, Bullet Bill, Buzzy Beetle, and Boo, but no Koopa Troopa. So, who will come with the Nendo Koopa?
