If you’ve been waiting to find out more about some new Nintendo figures coming out (it feels like it has been a while, right?), then I have some great news for you. Jakks Pacific has revealed what the figures will be in the next wave of 4″ World of Nintendo figures on the World of Nintendo Reddit as well as teased an image of a new figure on their Twitter account. The next wave will be:
Iggy Koopa with Wand
Hammer Bro with Hammer
Metal Mario with Mario Kart Trophy
Raccoon Mario with Super Leaf
That is a whole lot of new Mario figures coming your way and I can definitely say that I’m excited! Raccoon Mario and Metal Mario are repaints or slightly tweaked from other Mario figures that have already been released but look unique enough that I plan on picking them up. I’m curious to see what the trophy will look like that comes with Metal Mario as well. That could be one of the more unique accessories in the whole line if it is done well. As exciting as all of this is, there is one catch. The new figures are not expected to arrive in stores until April. With limited Amiibo releases on the horizon, Nintendo fans are going to be in a bit of a winter chill as far as figure releases go. Hopefully the spring will be busier and we’ll see plenty of great new figures in 2018!
