Those official action figures... And hell, even those unofficial ones, always cost more than they should. But we're entering a brand new day -- one in which we can make our own action figures. Kotaku AU fan Siegey was left to look after his work's 3D printer, and... Well. He made a Mario.
I can't wait to get my hands on one of these. No matter how hard I search for merch for some games, I can't seem to find it. My money is begging to be spent. But someday not too far off, I'll be able to make my own.
Here are a couple of shots, though you can find more, along with some captions on the crafting process, here.
I hope we're not getting him into trouble - thanks, Siegey!
