Good Smile Company have teased a Nendoroid of Mario's younger brother for several events now without showing so much as a scrap of plastic. Some of us even feared that he'd become lost in that special prototyping hell where figures go to die (hi figma Archer!).
Fear not however, as Nendoroid Luigi has sprung fully formed from sketch to Kahotan preview! And he's looking great, although I'm not too sure about that unusually lanky body. Still, GSC have clearly devoted a lot of a care to this release, lavishing Luigi with accessories.Aside from three faces, you'll also get Nendo sized versions of a Warp Pipe, a Goomba and a Bullet Bill. He also comes with a special set of running/jumping legs and dust cloud effects parts to recreate action scenes.
We don't get a price, but we do get a pre-order date - tomorrow! I think I can get behind this much more rapid cycle. Who's planning to put down their hard earned star coins and close out the Year of Luigi in style?
[UPDATE: Pre-orders are go! He's ¥3,704 and can be ordered by clicking on the links below!]
