Fire Mario from wave 1-3, Fire Luigi is a simple repaint and thus this review might be a bit shorter than usual (check out the basic Luigi review here). If you've always been a fan of the Mario Bros. through all of their different incarnations, the thought of having both of these guys paired up as a fireball throwing team is probably as irresistible as the desire to leap over the flagpole. Ready for a closer look at Fire Luigi? Then join me after the break...

*Luigi certainly isn't as well articulated as well articulated as Bandai
Japan's S.H. Figuarts Luigi, but he's also around 1/3 of the price.
Luigi has a decent a number of sturdy joints that should allow you to at least have some fun with the figure and put it in a few neat poses.
* While this guy is a simple repaint of the earlier Luigi, that's really no problem here. Sometimes cartoon and video game
characters look off when turned into a three dimensional action figure
but Luigi doesn't! This guy is incredibly well sculpted! I love the
expression on his face!
*While most of Luigi's white and green outfit looks pretty good, there are actually some odd scuffs on my figure's hat. They're on the back so they're not very noticeable, but they're there. Not sure what caused them know. Probably Hammer Brothers. Darn, I really want a Hammer Brother in this line. Or two. So I can have Hammer Brothers. And a Thwomp.
* I really wish Jakks had given Fire Luigi one hand that was designed to hold the Fire Flower. It'd be cool if Luigi could carry is around in his left or right hand. Sadly, it really just has to stay in one place planted on the ground.
I've also reviewed most of the other figures in this line so far, including:
