Bandai’s S.H. Figuarts Super Mario Action Figure Coming In May

S.H. Figuarts Mario Main
Bluefin Tamashii Nations USA

When Bluefin Tamashii Nations USA opened a survey to action figure collectors asking which licenses fans were most interested in last year, quite a few fans raised an eyebrow at the inclusion of Super Mario Bros. on the form. Once Bandai's North American distributor of the hyper articulated S.H. Figuarts action figure line uploaded a question mark box from the franchise on its social media channels, though, it seemed as if a trip to the Mushroom Kingdom was surely in order. Today a display at the Nuremburg Toy Fair confirmed it: This May we'll all be able to "Do the Mario" with all the articulation befitting Nintendo's flagship plumber.

Holiday Gift Guide: ‘Mario: Cause Of Death’ Poster

Cause of Death poster by Yves Bourgelas

When it comes to the holiday gift-giving season, comic book readers are notoriously difficult to shop for. I mean, most of us are down at the shop buying our favorite stuff every single week, so when the time comes for people who like us to get us something we want, well, a lot of times we already have it. That’s why we’re stepping in with a public service, bringing you comics-related items sure to make the season brighter, whether you’re browsing for a gift or just looking for something to drop hints about so that you don’t get stuck with a random assortment of back issues again.

As much as we deck trees out with colored lights and sing cheery songs, it's always important to remember that Winter is a terrifying season of death. And what better way to remember that than with fifty examples of one person dying, over and over, in different ways? I mean, that sounds dark, but it's not so bad when you consider that it's Mario on Yves Bourgelas's "Cause of Death" poster!

‘Nintendo Power’ Is Canceled, Your Childhood Memories Have Been Mortally Wounded

np01

When I was a kid, I'd start bugging my mom every Friday after school to drive me over to the video store so that I could rent a video game before all the good ones were gone, and the reason I knew which ones were good -- or thought I knew, anyway -- was that I was a subscriber to Nintendo Power. I read the magazine with a dow
