Jakks Pacific has been making figures based on the Mario license for a few years now and the company will also be making toys based on The Super Mario Bros. movie. Fans haven’t seen any of the Mario toy designs in an official capacity, but a new leak has revealed a plethora of options that will be available in the near future. It seems that the company plans a Mario Bros. From Playset include (based on the one we’ve seen on a leaked poster), Peach’s Castle, a 7-inch Bowser figure, and a series of “Mini World” figures.
YouTuber M&L Toys shared a video of the leaked toy and it’s embedded below.
It seems Jakks has made an effort to differentiate these toys from the company’s standard Mario offerings. The Mini World line has smaller figures that come with a question block, which opens to show an image from the movie. The Mario Bros. Van Playset and Peach’s Castle have similar gimmicks, which also open. However, these designs seem to have full playsets for Mario on the inside. The playset in the van resembles the area of the Mushroom Kingdom where Mario first appears in the movie’s teaser trailer, complete with Warp Pipes and Mushrooms.
Peach’s Castle, meanwhile, opens to a “training ground.” The picture of the box is a bit blurry, so it’s hard to tell exactly what’s inside. However, we do see Peach training Mario in the first full trailer for the movie (which can be seen at the top of this page), advising him on how the Kingdom’s various platforms work. So it could be based on that scene.
Now that these images have leaked online, hopefully Jakks Pacific will officially unveil some of these toys, and anything else the company might have along the way. The Super Mario Bros. movie won’t be released until April 7, but the movie is already highly anticipated. Mario fans who can’t wait for this toy can always indulge themselves by heading to McDonald’s, which currently has Happy Meals available based on the movie.
