NCS Product Synopsis
Update: September 08, 2010
«©NCSX» NCS imported a bunch of Mario Statues from Japanese manufacturer Weccle Ats back in 2007. Pricing was US$279 each. Most of the statues arrived intact and suitable for sale. Some didn't. According to our records, three of the statues got busted up in the same way - a major fracture of Mario's right arm along with additional stress damage on the left arm. The reason was because Weccle Ats used a form-fitting cardboard box to ship the Mario statues and if anything smacked the side of the box where Mario's elbow was jutting out, Mario's elbow got cracked. Dumb, right?

   We've been clearing out the old warehouse and we found one of the Mario statues that got busted up. We've included photos of the damage so a prospective buyer can see exactly what he or she's getting into. From the front, Mario looks great but he's all cracked on the back. To add insult to injury, the middle finger on Mario's left hand got severed but we're fairly certain that it can be re-attached with a liberal slather of glue.

   NCS is selling the Mario statue item AS-IS. We have about 2 more weeks before we vacate the old warehouse and most of the inventory has been moved or sold. We'll try selling whatever remains over the next few days in single lots as well as bulk lots. «NCS Photo Gallery»  

Original NCS Product Synopsis
Update: May 18 2007
«©NCSX» In Japan and Asia, many households and businesses place a Maneki Neko or Fortune Cat near the window or door to bring good luck and prosperity. The fortune cat lifts up a paw in salutation while the other paw holds a koban or gold coin close to its belly.
    We look at the Mario 50cm (19.68") tall statue as the video game equivalent of Maneki Neko and it'll potentially bring good fortune into local arcades, video game shops, and amusement centers. The world's most famous plumber smiles and welcomes visitors into an establishment with a flourish. We're of the opinion that a retail store which places one of the most successful video game characters near its front doors can only invite fortune into the establishment. Mario will also attract curiosity seekers who'll enter the shop to marvel at its girth. Think of it as feng-shui for the gaming industry.
    As an aside, all of the stores that we've sold these types of Mario figures to are still in business and successful. That's not to say that Mario will save a flagging business or a shop that's competing against a newly opened Gamestop or EBGames next door...
    The Mario 50cm Statue is an official product that is licensed by Nintendo.
