Fans hurting for a fully articulated Luigi action figure since Toy Biz's notable Mario Kart 64 line in circa 1999-2000 can finally snag something arguably even cooler from Good Smile Company in July of 2014. Even as Nintendo's "Year of Luigi" draws to a close, GS has announced a Nendoroid action figure version of Super Mario's taller, higher-jumping brother.

Set for release in August, the nearly 4" tall Luigi Nendoroid will come packed with three facial expressions, several posed extremities and a special pegged base ripe for displaying the figure's plethora of Mushroom Kingdom-y accessories. These accessories include a goomba, a Bullet Bill, a trio of cloudy "dust up" effect parts, a warp pipe, and plenty of transparent plastic stands to pose it all with.

The figure is currently available from Japanese preorder sites for 3,704 Yen (about $36 USD), and has made its way to American online sites like Entertainment Earth for $48.99.
