Jakks Pacific is back with some more World of Nintendo figure news being teased on Reddit and this time it involves the return of much wanted figure! 6″ Bowser is a figure that has become more and more sought after over time, in part due to the realization that the World of Nintendo figure is actually better than the figures that many of the competitors have released. If you’ve been wanting one and not wanting to pay the high prices on 3rd party sites like eBay, then you’re in luck!
A new diorama/figure set has been announced and while details are limited, the set looks nice! Mario and Bob-omb are nothing new or hard to find and while Bowser isn’t technically new, since he has become rare, he is certainly exciting. This new set is a great way to re-release a figure without necessarily bringing back the entire 6″ inch line too which is probably a win for Jakks Pacific since the figure line on the whole didn’t seem to do well when it was on shelves. It is not clear which retailers are going to sell this though it sounds like Entertainment Earth and Toys R Us Canada are the two biggest ones who are currently signed on. It is hard to imagine this hitting the shelves of Target or Wal-Mart but I hope to be wrong! The price of this set will also be interesting. I would expect it to be around $25-35 since you have a 6″ figure, a 4″ figure and a 2.5″ figure which would make it one of the most expensive products in World of Nintendo upon release.
What do you think of this newest product from Jakks Pacific? Is this something you’ve been hoping for or is there a different figure you’d like to see them re-release? Let us know in the comments below!
