Mario and his best pal Yoshi have a pretty cool statue coming…kinda soon from First 4 Figures. The $500 statue stands at 19 inches tall and is made of resin. It features Mario and Yoshi in their familiar pose with the plumber on his back. They are posed on a familiar grass covered stone platform from the Mario series of games. This thing looks like it jumped right out of a cutscene and into these pictures. Crazy cool.
This will not be available until spring of 2020, so you have some time. You can check it out below and place a preorder right here.
Yoshi is known as Mario's trusted companion throughout the plumber's adventures to rescue Princess Peach and foil the evil plans of the menacing Bowser. Yoshi was initially meant to be a type of Koopa, but eventually evolved into the design we all know and love today. The shell was converted into a saddle for Mario to mount on and was given a more dinosaur-esque sketch to differentiate the two species.
Apart from Mario's abilities to shoot fireballs using the Fire Flower and time-limited invulnerability using the Super Star, the tandem is better able to defeat their opponents with the help of Yoshi's unique powers. Yoshi can swallow his enemies whole using his hyper-extended tongue and gain special abilities depending on the ingested opponent, or lay them into eggs which can either serve as projectiles or hatch into power-up items for Mario, depending on the video game title.
