    I'd love a Falcon but not tiny like Samus and Link are I'd wish they were more in line with the figma 6 inch scale

    Found the latest 4" wave today and picked up Waluigi & Bowser Jr. Waluigi has the same articulation as Mario/Luigi though can't stand straight due to the sculpt. I really wish he had some elbow and knee swivels and maybe a ball jointed head, then he'd be perfect. Bowser Jr is pretty good, no knees or elbows but I can't see how you'd fit them in. His neck appears to be a swivel hinge but can't move up due to the sculpt. Love the Bob-omb he comes with.

    No prob! Amazon will likely frequently restock him, I know they restocked the OoT Link at least five times after it initially sold out.

    Thanks! Just bought Waluigi, Shy Guy and Bowser Jr.

    I bought my kids a few of these guys on a whim since they enjoy playing the games on their Wii U. They've really enjoyed them and the collector in me (lol) has begun to find as many of the 4" and 6" Mario characters as I can.

    Right now their collection includes:
    Mario
    Luigi
    Green Yoshi
    Blue Toad
    Princess Peach
    Goomba
    6" Donkey Kong

    I'm thinking about picking up a Fox Mcloud and Link for myself if I can ever find them in stock.

    My dad gets into my car and sits right on 8-bit Luigi. Crushed the shit out of the packaging. I went over to TRU to get an extra, and of course--they don't have any more of that one! :redface2: :banghead: :rolleyes2 :dunce

    Just got Fox in the mail today. I love him! Besides the hip articulation, he has some good possibility. A lot better than Mario, that's for sure..

    The 6" Bowser is in stock at Toysrus.com if you're late to the boat like me and need one.

    Here is hoping it becomes easier to buy these figures in the future:

    Has anyone who placed their order through Amazon for the latest wave received a shipped notice? My order is supposed to be delivered by the 6th but there's no way they make it unless they overnight them now.

    The Bowser I ordered from TRU last week hasn't shipped either, and has shown as "located in stock" all week.

    Hooray for new stuff, I got a Bowser Jr. at TRU. It was tough to choose between him and Sheik, but the Bob-omb tipped the scale (find it funny that Jakks are just showing you straight up what accessory you're getting now). I really like the little guy! He continues the trend of late of being better articulated than you'd expect (poor Toad). I really hope we get the rest of the Koopa Kids before too long. Especially Ludwig.

    I found a red Link at my Target.

    Certainly not one of the most exciting variants we've ever seen, but I can't complain too much for $3.50.

    Yeah, I wasn't really keen on them when I first saw them. But they definitely grew on me. It's nice that they're cheap, too. In this age of rising prices, any cheap collectibles are appreciated.
