    For people that have seen these in retail and/ or purchased them:

    Have you seen the 4" Articulated Wario with these?
    I have only seen Mario, Link and Yoshi.

    The case seemed to be 3 Mario, 2 Yoshi, and 1 Link. (speculation)

    Wario isn't out.

    That is definitely the case ratio for the 4" figures, which is why Link is going for so much now.

    As of right now, only TRU carries Bowser and Donkey Kong.

    Gonna go ahead and bump this because I managed to find a Link at Kmart! They actually had 3 of them, so I'm not sure what that says about the case ratio.

    The toy itself is pretty damn great, especially for $9. The only issue I have with mine is that his shoulder joint can't really support the weight of his arm with the shield on it (spoiler: the "mystery accessory" is the Hylian Shield). Gonna see if I can't fix that joint up.

    These figures are pretty great for the price. Link is nearly as articulated as Figma Link and looks almost as good. Same for Mario. Stand Mario next to the Figuarts Mario and they look like twins, just different joints. Haven't picked up a Yoshi yet and not sure I will. The Vinyl one i got a few years back looks a little better to me and is about the same size. Can't wait to find a Bowser.

    I have the new Yoshi- not as articulated but the newly added articulation is great. I'm happy he can do some playful poses. The vinyl figure from a few years back is a little larger than this newer one.

    Hoping they'll add more characters like Samus, Captain Falcon and Fox McCloud.

    I walked by Bowser for two weeks and the day I went in to get him... *poof* Gone.
    I'm still interested to see how the Wario is going to look; he's on the back of the card.

    I've seen 4" Wario on Fwoosh; anybody else have him yet?

    All I've seen since I bought Link in August is one DK, the occasional Yoshi and Marios, Marios, Marios everywhere.

    Are the larger figures TRU exclusives? I think I've only seen them there, and I can't remember seeing Bowser as of yet.

    I actually went ahead and picked up DK. I was able to get the $16 price at a different TRU. Mine is charging $20. :mad

    This line is pointless until they make Metroid figures. Seriously, there's been Mario toys like this for the past 8 years. Change it up!

    I don't see that coming to fruition. What do these toy companies do with most lines? They make the main characters in a larger size and in a smaller size--just in case you failed to notice the larger figure sitting on the store shelf.:lol  What are they giving us here? 7 inch DK and 3 inch DK.:lol 

    It is what it is.

    I'm still awaiting Wario's arrival, and hopefully we'll get some news of new figures coming.

    I wonder if they did a Peach, Rosalina, and Daisy, would they just have arm articularion? I thought the same things about if S.H. Figuarts did them.

    Scored Wario for $7.99 at my local Target. He's really big and barely fits in the package. :lol

    Sweet. I'm glad this line is happening.
