Fire Mario 50cm Statue - Preorder

Earlier this year, NCS stocked a Super Mario statue in regulation-issue red and blue plumber's duds which measured 50cm (19.68") tall. NCS espoused about how Asian households and businesses would place a Maneki Neko aka Fortune Cat near their entryways to welcome fortune and prosperity into the premises. We then compared the Maneki Neko to the Super Mario statue and made our sales pitch. The Mario statue sold like gangbusters to shops and customers around the world who wanted to increase their level of prosperity. Sort of.
Following on the success of the first Mario statue, manufacturer Wecle Ats has started preorders for a Fire Mario variant which also measures 50cm and is decked out in a white and red plumber's suit. The new Mario shares the same sweeping pose as the original and mimes the same expression. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late November 2007 at JPY19800 or US$215 from NCS. Please note that the statue will ship in a dimensional weight carton of 23 lbs and NCS recommends only shipping by UPS Ground within the US or USPS Airmail to our international customers.
