Own the true Mario, maybe

This item up for auction on eBay is purportedly a cast of a Nintendo reference model for Mario, used to make sure that all depictions of the character are consistent. However it looks slightly off-model to us. Mario's appearance has changed many times over the years, and this piece doesn't quite seem consistent with any of them.
If this is really what the seller says it is, it's an amazing and unique collectible that represents an ideal Mario. If not, it's ... actually still a pretty neat Mario statue, though it has a busted arm. That would probably be easy enough to fix.

Also found on GameSniped today: a cotton candy machine made by a pre-video-game Nintendo.

Halloween is serious business at the Pokemon Center

Halloween in Japan is apparently pretty cool, at least in terms of the corporate response. Brian Ashcraft from Kotaku showed off this trick-or-treat bag from the Pokémon Center in Osaka. Of course, it's quite a nice bag, with full-color, completely original Pokémon art covering every surface.

But what's really cool is that the bag is filled with Pokémon-branded candy and treats! We find that kind of dedication impressive. It's also just plain nice of the Pokémon Center to hand this stuff out, even if it is a tactic to bring people in. We imagine that most places would give out a plastic bag or a single piece of candy at most.

Make pudding with the Sugarbunnies

Move over Mama, there's a new set of cooks in town. Make that a nest ... of bunnies. Sanrio's Sugarbunnies, to be exact, and they are ready to bring you on board for a delicious candy-making revolution. Bunny twins Shirousa and Kurousa have been charged with making candy for everyone, and as far as we can tell, they have to select the right recipes and ingredients to satisfy a variety of sugary cravings through Cooking Mama-style minigames. But the Sugarbunnies go beyond the limits of Cooking Mama, it seems, as they need to harvest the proper ingredients for the recipes. Sounds a little like Animal Crossing on the farm and in the kitchen to us, and that's really all we need to know to be interested.

The Sugarbunnies will be bounding onto the DS in Japan this fall.
