You Will Believe A Mario Can Fly 

Look, up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s $65 or so worth of remote controlled flying Mario, also available in Yoshi.

It’s always nice to see a familiar face while scouring the outskirts of the New York Toy Fair. I found Mario here at the Carrera booth, hanging out in front of the Mario Kart RC cars and slot car racing sets the company is known for. Last year the company released a Mario drone copter that they couldn’t keep in stock. This winter they have a pair of remote controlled copters, and they’re really neat.

Both Mario and Yoshi models will sell for around $US50 ($65). Mario’s cape, in plastic for his Toy Fair debut, will be cloth in the final product. Imagine it fluttering in the wind as you watch the clip below.

And lo, the skies shall be filled with plumbers and egg-pooping dinosaurs.
