Anyone here collect Super Mario? My Mom got me into Mario/Nintendo at a young age. Sadly she passed when I was 6, so its one of the few memories I have of her. I have the old Applause figures from 1989, to the new figures from Jakks Pacific. I wish they made more SH Figuarts figures though.

Here is my collection

Here are some recent pickups

I picked up these cartoon animation cels off Etsy of all places. Very cool to own these.

I started out with the Acorn Plains playset. I've since amassed a nice collection of playsets and figurines. I'm also into the Hot Wheels Mario Kart stuff as well. Fun to collect. :)

Picked up a few new figures over the weekend - 2 Paragoombas and decided to grab Nabbit as well. All are 2.5" scale.

I had my eye on that large 12" electronic "It's-A-Me Mario" doll/figure at Target. It started out as $40. It's been $35 online for a while even though it is still $40 in the store. Today one of my local Targets had it on clearance for $15.

This one

Now if only I can manage to one day take that large Mario that's hanging on a pole in the video game section. LOL! 😅
I was tempted to ask someone about it, but if you examine it closely there is a sticker that says property of Nintendo and not to remove unless authorized or something to that effect. I'll bet some lucky employee will get it one day if they ever decide to remodel the video game section of Target.

Also, I thought I'd mention that Five Below has one of the waves of 2.5" figures with an accessory. It's the wave with Donkey Kong.

Happy Mario Day! Nintendo officially dubbed March 10th (Mar10) as Mario Day. I bought this book a few weeks ago.

I found Daisy and Rosalina 2.5" figures this past week on two different Walmart trips. Coming off ankle surgery I thought I would have a hard time finding them. I got lucky as I'm just starting to walk, and with Rosalina they had 2 left and I grabbed the last Daisy.

Target has some good Super Mario stuff on sale.

This Mariokart Hot Wheels set is on sale as well.

On a related note, I came across this Hot Wheels set at Best Buy. Never even knew about it until I saw it on the shelf. I added it to me growing Mario Kart collection.

Where were these playsets when I was a kid? Back then I used whatever I could find to make my own Mario levels. I used drinking cups for warp pipes. Now that I think about it, its probably why my drinks tasted funny.. :cautious:
