The lights are on
Since Nintendo resurrected Tanooki Mario in Super Mario Bros. 3D Land, it hasn't been able to keep the plumber from flying all over the place. Most recently, Nintendo's mascot has landed safely on the design desk of statue manufacturer First 4 Figures.
First 4 Figures' Tanooki Mario looks like he's about to leave a steaming toadstool on your lawn, but he's so adorable you'll still want to bring him inside and give him a home on your gaming shelf.
This fifteen inch statue is made from high-quality polystone resin, complete with hand-finished detailing and paint work. The exclusive version features an additional red scarf and Tanooki Leaf question box. Tanooki Mario should ship sometime early next year and will set you back $239.99, but First 4 Figures is only printing 750 statues worldwide, so you might want to pre-order your copy now. Check out a close-up shot below.

Why can't I afford the things I want?!
'First 4 Figures' Tanooki Mario looks like he's about to leave a steaming toadstool on your lawn'
And he looks pretty damn pleased with himself about it, too...Mario's always been a bit creepy.
I'm lovin' the graphics on this.
It's not a true Tanooki if it doesn't have one thing, but I doubt a E game would have it, would be funny to see it.
I always hate when first 4 makes something as I want it and I never would have the money for it. Their stuff is so cool.
Are you kidding me? $239.99? So maybe I can sell them when am 100 years old to make so money back.
Mario is twerkin!1 Get it plumber get it!!!
Someone get the pooper scooper.
A little too expensive for my wallet, especially with all the great games coming out.
Dang it Mario, I just cleaned up this yard! Go tinkle in the Tanooki potty!
