If you are a fan of Bandai’s recently released S.H. Figuarts Mario and Luigi action figures, then there is a slight chance that you already know that they S.H. Figuarts Yoshi action figure is up next. This announcement was made very discreetly in their recent Luigi trailer and now they have released the official images and details.
Yoshi is Bandi’s third Super Mario figure. He stands about 4.3-inches tall and comes with various accessories. Included with the figure is a Yoshi egg, an extended tongue, replaceable arms and hands to hold and aim the egg, as well as a couple of attachment pieces to allow your Mario and Luigi figures to ride on his back.
Now Yoshi may not have been the first choice that many collectors would have had for the next figure in this series, as there are many other more popular characters that could have been a much better fit. However, Yoshi is likely still going to be welcome in many Super Mario collections since he works nicely with both of the already released Mario and Luigi figures.
The figure is scheduled for release in May 2015 for about $37. I can’t currently find a live pre-order besides directly from Tamishii, but it looks like pre-orders might be going up on January 6th at stores like BBTS.
