Super Mario Galaxy Sound Drops - New Import, In Stock

The shrill sound effects and jingling chimes of Super Mario Galaxy are captured in Bandai's Sound Drop toys dedicated to the relatively recent Wii game. A total of eight different Sound Drops are featured in the set which emit a sonorous sound effect when pressed. Push all eight in sequence and you might compose a sweet Mario Galaxy symphony.

The Sound Drop toys are normally sold through gashapon dispensers in Japan in completely random fashion but we'll gather them up and portion them into sets of 8. That way, our customers won't suffer the pain of receiving unnecessary duplicates. All preorders have shipped as of last Thursday and new orders are welcome to ship today. View larger photos and a video of the Mario Galaxy Sound Drops in action.
