Life-Sized Mario Can Be Yours for Nearly $3,000

It'sa him, Mario! Witha you, person who just spent almost three grand.

As New Launches points out, this 150 cm (4.9 ft) Mario statue is available on Amazon Japan. It was launched a few years back and is priced at 285,000 yen, which is around US$2,900. This seems like something designed for retail displays—or people who really, really want a large Mario statue. Or people who own ridiculous overalls.
