An online Japanese shopping site, Trend One, is selling a life-sized Super Mario replica for a mere 248,000 yen (about $2,170)! The Mario figure is 155 cm, or a little over five feet tall.
According to the site, this is Mario’s actual height as given in the games’ background story. The product’s manufacturer is unspecified, but the advert claims the character likeness is fully licensed from Nintendo. Since we all know that people will be lining up to buy this thing, there is a super-limited production run of only 30 units!
What I want to know is how heavy the thing is… What it’s made out of and whether small children should run in fear in case it tips over… 🙂 Picture below:
