K'Nex Super Mario Blind-Bagged Series #2 Boo Action FigureThere are codes to identify Super Mario Blind-Bagged Series #2 but you won't need them to find Boo. A few toys have been made of this rotund spirit since his first appearance in Super Mario Bros. 3 back in 1990, but being cheap and common this is the one you'll want to go ahead and track down. Most stores I go to have a bunch of him - people can easily identify him and not buy him. As Mrs. 16bit and I had been playing through Luigi's Mansion late last year, she was delighted when I pointed out just how easy he was to find at a Target and bought him along with some hair spray.

The little guy is a couple of inches wide, bigger than I expected but arguably not big enough to be worth the $3. The plastic has a little give to it, so it's slightly more rubbery than a similar LEGO product. He has a few holes in his person for use in various playsets, like the K'Nex Super Mario 3D Land Ghost House set. Sadly no pole or display stand piece was included, so you're left to improvise if you're so inclined. He's a cute little guy with flipper arms, a big fully-sculpted mouth with teeth and a tongue, and painted-on eyes. K'Nex could have easily just done a small ball with a painted-on face, so these details are nice to see.

K'Nex Super Mario Blind-Bagged Series #2 Boo Action Figure

K'Nex Super Mario Blind-Bagged Series #2 Boo Action FigureWith no accessories and no articulation, the inclusion of the figure in this series feels something like a cop-out. While an accurate and overall decent representation of the former Boo Diddley, once you open the packet you've done pretty much everything you can do with this figure. It's delightful, sure, but then what?

I assume most of you bought one of these on clearance recently, and good on you for doing so. If you didn't, and the chance comes up, go grab one. It's a piece of Mario history at a price that - well, OK, it can be beat. But three bucks for the little guy feels right. I'll probably buy a Goomba if that shows up in a blind bag some day soon, as I continue to whine and moan about the lack of toys based on the Smash Bros. franchise.
