NA collectors and young Mario fans rejoice: the McDonald’s Happy Meal Toys for Super Mario are finally releasing in North America! Previously released in Japan/European regions, eight figures will come individually in each Happy Meal purchase. As seen above, they include Mario, Yoshi, Luigi in a Pipe, Red Shell, 1-up Mushroom, Bowser, Peach and a translucent Invincible Mario. Curious to discover what their exact functions are? Check out this handy video.
But wait, that video mentions twelve toys? Only eight toys are previewed above, and it seems Piranha Plant, Goomba, Waving Mario and Starman have missed the cut. Or perhaps McDonald’s chose not to showcase all twelve toys for whatever reason? We’ll find out for sure when the toys begin rolling out, but if that ends up being the case, collectors may want to check out auction sites to nab the missing four (or all eight/twelve to save yourself the embarrassment of picking up a Happy Meal all by your lonesome, heheh).
Smurfs: The Lost Village is the current Happy Meal line, and seems to be running through April 24th, so get your calenders marked for afterwards!
Oh, and in case you’re wondering, “McPlay” is an iPhone app for children that can scan Happy Meal Toys for additional content. Hit up the link for more information.
