An instant S.H. Figuarts classic.
Today I’m reviewing Bandai’s S.H. Figuarts Mario figure!
Nintendo’s icon deserves the best figure treatment. I’ve already express my fondness for Bandai’s S.H. Figuarts, so this is a perfect combination for the most famous video game character in the world.
The back of the box too. The figure itself doesn’t come with all the items shown above, but with separate diorama sets. If you’re the type of the collector who likes to display your toys differently, be sure to check out the diorama sets.
Also, you see the little clear plastic on the right? That helps the Gold Coin displays standing up:
The figure doesn’t come with any supporting points, otherwise it would be nice to have an image of Mario hitting the Block. The supporting point, as seen on the back of the box, only comes with the Diorama Set.
Now, enjoy some additional shots of the figure:
For a S.H. Figuarts, the figure doesn’t have the standard articulation points we’re familiar with. It’s a little off-putting, but it doesn’t effect the overall display and collection value. Also, unlike the usual S.H. Figuarts figures, this one doesn’t come with spare parts either. I guess Mario is not the type of character that requires spare parts. Overall, the figure is a superb one with great paint jobs and display value. Plus, Mario’s chubby body only allows it easier to stand, and it’s definitely a great figure to display on your shelves.
