I thought I’d squeeze a late night post for this odd Super Mario Brothers Bob-omb Statue. This is obviously unofficial and custom made, but as you can see the auction’s already getting plenty of interest as the Bob-omb’s selling for $126.49 so far. The statues made out of fiberglass and is 22 inches tall which is HUGE! Life Size is an appropriate title for this piece :). It’s really an obscure item for an obscure character. Trivia question: whats the first game Bob-omb appeared in??……??…..Anyone??…. Well, most of you might think that it was Super Mario Bros. 2 for the Nintendo Entertainment System, but little do you know Bob-omb appeared in a Japanese game titled Doki Doki Panic.
This would be a pretty neat item to own since there’s a slim chance Nintendo would ever create a 22 inch statue for an enemy such as Bob-omb. Still cool of the seller to make this piece. You can see that a lot of effort was put into making this. It will be interesting what the end price will be.
Note: Here’s another auction for a custom made 17′ Bob-omb that ended with no buyers. Seller was asking $250 for it. Click here for auction.
