Waluigi and Bowser Jr.


Man, I hate Bowser Jr. His existence seems to erase the Koopa Kids from SMB3 and Super Mario World. But other than that I don't care about him. Still... Original character in this line with completely new tooling, so that makes
me want it. I still would have preferred one of the Kooplings. Roy, Iggy, Wendy, Ludwig, Lemmy, any of them.

Meanwhile I love Waluigi because of how blatantly ridiculous he is. Evil Mario is popular? Let's introduce Evil Luigi! Evil Mario is named Wario because "W" is "M" upside down? So Evil Luigi should be Tuigi or Puigi, right? No! Waluigi, so he's forever associated with Wario. And no, they're not brothers. What the hell is going on? And why the hell are both of these guys so hard to find? 

They're packaged like one per box. And the codes on the back are deceptive. Waluigi isn't denoted by an line under one of the 7 numbers on the back, but rather a double line under a number which is already used to denote another figure if it has a single line under it. They've done that in the past when there were 8 figures in a wave, but this time there are only 7 figures. Each one could get its own number! But no, instead you can easily mistake Waluigi's code for Mario's code.

Boo blind bagged anything!

  2. What exactly are the codes for each of these guys? I'd like to find a Bowser Jr. if I can.
