This would look amazing in a game room. I’m not sure if Nicola mentioned this guy earlier, but I wanted to make sure the pictures were archived.
From the auction:
This is a huge advertising display that really wasnâ€™t intended for stores but was intended to be displayed in Nintendo corporate offices. Not sure what it is made of – hard plastic, fiberglass, resin? It is rigid and hollow inside. I believe it was produced in 2000 and has no labels or any identifying information on it. I bought it about 9 years ago from someone who used to work at Nintendo. I was told that only 10-20 of these were produced. It is 46â€ tall, 27â€ wide elbow to elbow, and 21â€ deep from tip of his nose to tip of his tail. It weighs approximately 21 lbs. and is attached to a heavy metal base. This will be pricy to mail. Professional packaging will be $80 and postage by UPS ground could be around $150 or more (estimate give by UPS store). It has been stored for 9 years in the garage and has some very minor scratches. I took a couple of pics of what I think are the bigger scratches – white dots on his nose and a scratch on one of his sleeves. Winning bidder will pay bid plus $80 packaging and all postal/mailing costs and insurance. If you live locally (Seattle/Tacoma area) we can arrange pickup to save on packaging/mailing costs. This would make an excellent gift or a great addition to your Nintendo Advertising Memorabilia collection. Return only if item has been grossly misrepresented. Ask questions and best of luck bidding.
