For some reason 8-bit has returned in popularity. Look at toy shelves, Minecraft and its imitators are everywhere. One nice thing is that due to this craze, Jakks Pacific has released 8-bit figures and plush.I collect the 2.5 inch line so thats what I have been hunting down. Earlier this year I purchased and reviewed (on my YouTube) the 8-Bit Mario from Wal-Mart. This time I finally found 8-Bit Link also from Wal-Mart.
DID SOME RESEARCH AND MORE DETAILS ON WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT BELOW)
The 3 styles are:
- Super Mario (available in classic, another version of classic that barely looks different, B&W, Modern Colors, and Luigi). There is supposedly a "star powered" version but I do not know for sure.
- Link (available in classic, red, and White)
- Donkey Kong
I want DK and Luigi and might get the B&W version which is supposedly meant to represent Game Boy Mario!
UPDATE: So after doing some research I found this on Ebay:
So the three games were Super Mario Bros., Duck Hunt, and World Class Track Meet. I played the first two like crazy and played the "activity" one like once lol. The mat was the power pad. Below is the set in package!
So that's a look at the two 8-bit figures that I have thus far (or at least at the time of me writing this article) and some memories that go with them :) Tomorrow we discuss the Littles!
