Coming this spring from Nintendo and Jakks Pacific, the $US40 ($52) Super Mario deluxe Bowser Ship playset plays the airship theme as the 2.5-inch plumber climbs aboard to wreak havoc.

Announced today in honour of this week’s MAR10 holiday, the Bowser Ship is a proper toy playset for proper plastic Mario toys. There’s no Lego funny business here, no gimmicks unless you count the electronic music, spinning propellers, and rocking wheels. It’s got Bowser’s face in front and, just in case, another Bowser face in the back, in case you’ve forgotten whose ship it is by the time you reach the back.

The airship also offers a nice bit of utility for Mario figure collectors, with plenty of room inside to cram all the figures they keep collecting. It’s a mobile toy deployment platform.

I love a nostalgic toy with a side order of utility. The Super Mario deluxe Bowser Ship playset should start hitting stores this spring.

Editor’s Note: Stay tuned for local Australian pricing and availability.
