World of Nintendo line (though I never found one). Let's check him out after the break...
Height: 3 inches
Articulation: Swivel/ hinge ankles, swivel/hinge hips, swivel/hinge tail, swivel/hinge shoulders, and swivel/hinge wrists.
Accessories: Magic wand
Non-Scalper Price: $10 dollars
* One of the strengths of both the Super Mario Bros. and the World of Nintendo toylines is the way that Jakks manages to capture the style of the Nintendo characters. Big, bold, and very smooth looking kind of summarizes up the Nintendo aesthetic and Jakks almost always seems to translate it into action figure form.
* I love Ludwig's headsculpt, particularly due to his incredibly stylish hair. He definitely has bolder hair than Bethoven, doesn't he? Fun fact: Ludwig van Beethoven actually appeared in the video game "Mario's Time Machine." Fun stuff, huh?
* Like any good Koopa, Ludwig has a shell covered in colorful spikes. Don't try to jump on his back!
* Ludwig comes with his magic wand, which can fit in his right hand. It's a simple sculpt but it looks like the character's accessory from the games and it features a darker blue paint app for the orb on top.
* Ludwig is by no means "super articulated" but he definitely has a few joints, all swivel/hinge, which allow him to take some poses. You shouldn't have any trouble finding some way to pose him that you'll like on your shelf.
This is the first figure of Ludwig von Koopa I've reviewed. For more figures from Super Mario Bros. by Jakks Pacific, check out the following:
