Yes, that's right, you can currently pre-order a detailed figure of the famous plumber riding the adorable green dino on the official Nintendo store in the UK for £ 399.99.

Made of resin, the statue measures at an absolute unit of size, with a height of 19 inches/ 48 cm and a width of 13 inches / 33 cm. This size includes the small grass block base that the two figures sit on.
