I love the Mario Brothers games. It is one of my greater embarrassments that I own more Mario Bros. t-shirts than I do shirts with buttons!
I always preferred Luigi because my older brothers were always 1p back on the old NES, so no matter who I was playing with, I ended up with Luigi, or "Loogie" as my brothers pronounced it. I didn't care, I was like 6 years old, and green was my favorite color. Worked for me.
The figure itself is prety neat. He has cute little wings in the back. The paint is not the best, but is pretty good for one of these little PVC style figures. I wish his arms moved a little, but we can't have everything I guess.
