He's absolutely adorable! A little taller than your standard Nendoroid, his size might actually come as a surprise to someone with many Nendoroids. He comes in a little bit larger than normal box as well!
There are many parts to this Nendoroid set, including a large stand which can display blocks above Mario's head, and the backing cardboard in the box is actually meant to be taken out and used as a background for him!
This Mario is definitely geared more towards all Nintendo fans, rather than just Nendoroid collectors. I absolutely love the re-useable box (though I won't tear it apart or cut it like the instructions want, because I'm a box hoarder). It'll be great for future photoshoots!
On a side note- Ollie apparently isn't a big fan of Mario. It took him somewhere between ten and eighteen hours to decide for certain that he wanted to throw Mario and his stand off of my Nendoroid shelf. Never before has this boy gotten anywhere near my Nendoroids, but I guess the look he was giving Mario while I was unboxing him should've been my first clue.
So if anyone has any extra pieces like the little tabs that hold the blocks on, or the stands that hold accessories up that you don't need- let me know. I'll buy them from you. >.< Otherwise I'll probably just buy some Nendoroid More sets from Amiami and hope that those will work.
