Time to round out my latest Wal-Mart check lane finds with the rest of the World of Nintendo figures you can find along with Bowser Jr, Larry and Koopa Troopa! Yoshi, Bullet Bill and the original "fist pump" Mario get another reprint. Running Luigi is new unless you were one of the very few to find him in standard packagaing (I never saw a sign of him anywhere) and Propeller Mario is brand new! He seems a little big compared to the other figures in this line- almost as big as the wind-up!
Speaking of which, it has been a banner year for Propeller Mario! In a few short months, we have gotten him in three different lines! I'd stop to wonder why all of a sudden, but they're so much fun, I can't complain! Finally, my side-by side picture reveals Jakks has been having a bit of trouble with skin tones lately. They seem a bit too yellow or pink in some cases but displayed on their own, you'd hardly notice. Each Mario features a spinning propeller (naturally) and varying degrees of realistic flight pose. Weighing these pros and cons I'd say the new 2.5" is my overall favorite!
