Looks great, high quality & very useful! Lowest price I could find initially was £27.85 @ Amazon (was the older version too) & oos/unavailable elsewhere but later checked the Nintendo store and found it available at this price Wish they'd offer items like this in the Club Nintendo Stars catalogue, such a poor selection there.

Looks like a newer version - Release Date: 12 May 2014. Improved facial features?
Not completely sure it'll properly hold the XL console but it might rest on it fine.
A great figure in it's own right anyway (great size too), doesn't just have to hold a console or anything for that matter! Maybe it'll handle certain phones or other accessories, like a Wii U remote.

Introducing the Mario Nintendo DS Holder! He is posed to hold your Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DS Lite in his hands! He looks fantastic on your desk! He measures approximately 12 inches tall and is made of PVC.

Yeah it's a newer version, not as nice as the original as it has a basic black base with no star on it.
Here's mine I got from game ages ago in a sale for I think £10.

I wonder what the differences are with this new version? Looks like it's quite difficult to get hold of nowadays (apart from Nintendo store now). Judging by the photos, his facial features look better now but not 100% sure.

From the pictures it looks like, as far as I can tell, the base has a star on the old one and Marios sideburns look darker on the new one.
Apart from that they look the same, I wish they would put some of this cool stuff on club nintendo as I have nearly 11 thousand points sat doing nothing.

I'm almost in the exact same situation, just waiting for something to spend those points on. It's such a poor collection of items. All they've added recently is a basic Yoshi Egg backpack for something like 6500 stars!!!!
Can't see why they haven't put anything from the store there or at least have some eShop cards that can be redeemed on Wii U & 3DS.

Yeah, his eyes and moustache do look better on this one. The mushroom doesn't come with the old one does it? Just seen some vids on Youtube and it's not there but the star sign is visible.

No the mushroom is my own addition, they are sweet tins from red5 and come in red, green and blue.
Looks like nintendo made 3 models of this, I was just looking and they made a green base version.

very useful!



I am amazed that no-one has taken issue with this yet.

Voted cold by accident with my big fingers, sorry this seems pretty cool. If there was a PlayStation alternative for the Vita or Controller I'd snap it up A Kratos one would be pretty cool.

No worries. Did see a Sonic figure (not a holder though) that looked similar to this, while searching for info. Worth a search probably.

the face on the old version looks a bit smaller (not as "fat faced") and kinda weird to me.

what a load of useless piece of tat. marketing machine in over drive. I mean how much use will this be? and in 10 years...it will be lucky if it fetches a tenner.

We have a big sackboy who holds the play station remote and I'm sure the Vita would fit!

Very true! However, Nintendo could probably do with a little divine intervention to rescue Wii U right now!

I wanna get him to hold those squeezy stress boobies.
