New World of Nintendo 4″ Figures Teased

On the World of Nintendo Reddit, a Jakks Pacific employee has revealed the next wave of 4″ figures coming to World of Nintendo after there were some rumors swirling about future figure releases.  While there are no images to share, here is a list of the figures that we can expect to see soon.

Mario from Odyssey with Cappy

Propeller Mario with Coin

Green Koopa Troopa with a set of Wings

Shyguy with Propeller

Luigi with Koopa Shell

Just like the last wave, this is another Mario-exclusive release.  Most of these characters have been released before and they are variations on either accessories or outfits.  This may prove disappointing to some as repaints and variants are less exciting than brand new figure sculpts but I do look forward to seeing more about these figures before I make that judgement.

Interestingly, if you visit the link above, the Jakks employee also shares that some of the more obscure Nintendo characters are not likely to get a figure currently, including Donkey Kong Country characters.  It seems that World of Nintendo is going to be Mario focused for the foreseeable future and I wonder if the releases are being catered towards Game Stop who seems to be the biggest seller of the newest World of Nintendo wave.  That is totally speculation on my part but it will be interesting to see what happens in the future with World of Nintendo.

As always, let us know your thoughts on this news down below!  Whenever Jakks shares images of the new figures, I’ll be sure to share them with you.

  1. A Mario and Cappy figure sounds really cool! Too bad they don’t have plans for more obscure figures though. I understand from a business standpoint why they aren’t going that route right now, but my collector’s heart is a little disappointed!

    • I know what you mean and I think other collectors feel similarly. They want to see balance between the more obscure characters and the popular ones. I’d like to see that too so hopefully that balance gets addressed in the future!
