Golden Zelda statue gallops back to European Club Nintendo

Although we regard this golden statue of Link and Epona as tacky, we're clearly in a minority. Despite being the most expensive item ever in the European Club Nintendo shop (15,000 Star Points, thank you), it sold out in the blink of a Goron's eye. How rare is this, exactly? Our guess: pretty damn r...

A brief history of Club Nintendo Awesomeness

By now, you've no doubt heard: Nintendo is rolling out Club Nintendo in the U.S. by the end of 2008. Wahey! Yeah, we know that Japan (generally speaking) gets the most excellent items when compared to elsewhere, but listen here, bub: it's free stuff. We're not about to complain, and nor should y...

Phazon Suit Samus statue is ridiculously nice

First 4 Figures has come back around full circle, after completing Sheik and Sonic and his pals, now they've got yet another Samus statue. This one, in our opinion, totally trumps all of their past efforts. Just look at the thing. Of course, the catch is that this costs a bunch of money. $224.99 i...

Three things to get you excited about Shiren 3

First reason to be hyped about Shiren the Wanderer: The Sleeping Princess in the Clockwork Palace's release, even though no one has announced a U.S. localization yet -- Famitsu's review score: 35/40 (9 / 9 / 8 / 9).

First4Figures to make statues of Sonic and gang

For those of you who're fans of the Sonic of yesteryear (you know, back when he was limited to 16-bit romps and what we consider to be his best game, Sonic CD), you'll be happy to hear that First4Figures is working on a Sonic statue to end all Sonic statues. Modeled after the original Sonic, this ...

Own the true Mario, maybe

This item up for auction on eBay is purportedly a cast of a Nintendo reference model for Mario, used to make sure that all depictions of the character are consistent. However it looks slightly off-model to us. Mario's appearance has changed many times over the years, and this piece doesn't quite see...

You know what's missing from your living room? A glistening four-foot statue of Mario with eyes that will follow you everywhere that you go. Note that we're putting this in your living room? That's because, as much as we like Mario, we're not sure we'd want it in ours. Collectibles are great and a...

Gigantic Mario 2: Fire Edition

Nobody stepped up when we exhorted you to buy us a huge Mario statue. We sit here, lonely, in our sparse, desolate office, yearning for an inanimate mascot character to talk to. But we're all lucky that you didn't go to such an expense for us, because we like this Fire Mario one better. The red-and-...
