Talk:List of merchandise

From the Super Mario Wiki

Whew![edit]

The 2006 Mcdonalds toy section is complete! if you have better pictures of them, or descriptions, feel free to edit them!

Major Editing[edit]

The recent Merchanidse articles by 3dejong need some major work. One sentence descriptions just don't cut it. We need to know the name of the companies producing these products, when they were released, where they were released and other notes. A lot of the merchandise seems like something a normal person could make out of clay. We need to know the official manufacturers. Without them, the merchandise has the same valididty here as fan games (i.e. none). -- Son of Suns

Unfortunately, I think 3dejong (talk) has been uploading images from a gallery website or such, and that website may or may not have that information. However, I agree – unless information is provided, we may have to delete those pages. Wayoshi TC@ Wayoshisig.png 15:21, 14 October 2006 (EDT)
If we can't find enough information for each toy to constitute a page, maybe we should create only a few pages for each category of merchandise (ex: a Mario Toys page, a Mario Plushies page, a Mario Figurines page, etc) and add some info about the category of merchandise on the top, and have the rest be a gallery of all the images we have. --Steve (talk) 15:26, 14 October 2006 (EDT) EDIT: Oh my, I just noticed Wayoshi sorta did that with the Yoshi plushies. Weird, I swear I didn't see that. Guess I'm not as creative as I thought I was.. --Steve (talk) 15:34, 14 October 2006 (EDT)
That's a good idea. We should try to combine similar merchandise. We also need to figure out if the merchandise is legitimate or not. Anything fan-made needs to be deleted. -- Son of Suns

I don't think anything is fan-made, it's all official. But I agree, consolidating the acticles is a good idea, and I do need to work on fleshing them out. In the meantime, I'll keep uploading, but once all the articles are finished, I will work on consolidation. Also, I do have all the dates for the items, if we need to add them. I've been downloading pics and info from this gallery:[1]3dejong

OK, on the Toad plush I just added, I put the date in. However, there just isn't much you can say about a Toad doll, so I'm thinking that, like Steve said, we should just have one article, like Plushies, and have a large gallery of all the items, like with the Yoshi plushes. Should I go ahead and upload all the rest of the artices, or should we make a gallery? 3dejong

I made a page for the Mario Land Finger Puppets, complete with manufacturer info and dates. Like it? You can see it here: Finger Puppets. 3dejong

That is exactly what we would ask to shorten the number of pages necessary. Wayoshi TC@ Wayoshisig.png 20:12, 14 October 2006 (EDT)

Dead-End Pages[edit]

It has come to my attention that many of the 63 "dead-end" articles (articles that have no internal links besides categories to another page on the wiki, creating a 'dead-end') are merchandise pages. This is another issue that needs to be resolved. Wayoshi TC@ Wayoshisig.png 13:10, 15 October 2006 (EDT)

Final Resolution[edit]

We have to compress the very short (less than three sentences) merchandise articles into one gallery, such as Luigi Bobblehead or Blargg Stamp. Although it would be cluttered and messy, we can separate it into sections, and that would be much better than so many short illegimate articles. As stated before, our goal is not to have many short articles but to have expansive articles. We already have a few gallery articles but this is what we'll have to create. It will be set up like this:

Galleries[edit]

  • Clothing and Accessories
  • Foods and Treats
  • Promotional Items (includes Promotional Pins, Stationary, and Utensils/Kitchenware)
  • Figurines (includes 3-D Pixelated Figurines and Promotional Figurines)
  • Plushies
  • Toys

Books[edit]

Comics[edit]

Official Nintendo Magazines[edit]

Other[edit]

Main reason the short mechandise articles should be merged into a gallery is because it makes editing short pages harder for new users. 3dejong? – SpikeFile:Spike sheild badge.PNG

OK! 3dejong

The list[edit]

RAP.pngRAP... Woah, woah, WOAH!!! This list at the article certainly needs improving, since I'm the only one who usually does the List Updating, can anyone help me on this? The list is WAY over from messy, it's pigsti!!!!

Candy powder Bob-omb[edit]

I remember having a bob-omb toy with candy powder inside. i forgot about it but Wikipedia mentioned it. i checked this list for it but didn't find it. i want to add it but i don't know what to classify it as. what do i classify it as?

Thanks in advance, Ninja_Lucario

GBA cards[edit]

i remember there was a promotion with cards with nintendo characters on them. on the back were some tips on some GBA games. i think Lunchables made them. Ninja_Lucario

no... Max2 (talk) I think you mean E-Reader cards.

no, i mean cards that were part of a promotion with Lunchables. the ones i recall were Luigi, Wario, Fox McCloud, and Kirby. i also remember there were some tips for Wario Land 4, Mario Kart: Super Circuit, and one of the Super Mario Advance games. Ninja_Lucario

Yeah, scan them and add them to Promotional Items.Knife (talk) 15:44, 22 June 2007 (EDT)

i would but i have no idea how to. I can make a mention in the article, but someone else will have to scan a picture.

Image use[edit]

I am the admin over at videogamemm.com, where you took several images from. My site clearly states on the main page: Note: All pictures found here are for public use (just right click and save-as)!

All I ask is that you give me credit and let me know!

So, who's job was it to ask me and to give me credit, because ya failed!

Other[edit]

Should we mention the poisoned Mario pins? Also I bought this Mario Toothbrush, but I didn't find it on the list.-KP Blue

Major Merge?[edit]

Nearly all of these articles are stubs, so would it be a good idea to merge these into gallery articles? Maybe classify them by clothing, food, toys, collectibles, and miscellaneous items? However, the books should still keep their articles since there's a lot more content to be covered. There's also an issue with names and some may not be official.--Knife (talk) 01:20, 28 December 2009 (EST)

Yes, merge. If anything, into sub-articles (e.g.: "Merchandise/Clothing") and so on. Redstar 01:41, 28 December 2009 (EST)

I found alot![edit]

Blimp Yoshi plush?[edit]

Do you know if this plush is fake or not? It is cute though. my46wvUV9j46VEga3Bt_n6Q.jpg muCorAznZeDbFRGVL4yUPmg.jpg

I think those are just pillows that look like Blimp Yoshi. YoshiHeadSSBU.png Tails777 Talk to me!SSBUStockIcon - Robin.png

Beach Towel[edit]

So let's say I had a beach towel with Mario and Luigi on it. Which section does it go in? I'm thinking micelaneous... ~Koopakoolklub

Found something?[edit]

I found some sort of arcade style game called the Super Mario World Lucky Coin Arcade Token Toy Catcher (it's a mouthful, I know), and I think it might be worth adding somewhere. But I can't seem to find much info on it. Anyone else know a bit more about it? TheDisneyGamer (talk) 10:43, 29 January 2016 (EST)

Merchandise game categories[edit]

In addition to being tagged with the general category, should any merchandise images also be tagged with the category of the particular game they are based on, if any?--driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 17:07, 13 May 2016 (EDT)

Sorry for the late response. I don't see why not, if they are specifically game-related(usually the box says it clearly).--Mister Wu (talk) 20:56, 18 May 2016 (EDT)
Yes. As a general rule we have always seemed to categorize scans or covers of game guides as a "game" image. It is fair to extend to other merchandise media too, where that merchandise has been made to promote a particular game.

Create new articles for Super Mario Bros. Monopoly, and Super Mario UNO[edit]

There are now more board/card games that is Mario-related in recent years: Monopoly and UNO. Not to be confused with Nintendo Monopoly and Nintendo UNO, that were released years ago. Can someone create these new articles? Here are the images of these from their official sites, for references:
Super Mario Bros. Monopoly: http://usaopoly.com/games/monopoly-super-mario-bros-collectors-edition
Super Mario UNO: http://shop.mattel.com/shop/en-us/ms/mattel-games/uno-super-mario-drd00

I cannot help with the Monopoly, while I have the Japanese Super Mario UNO set because at the time Mattel din't confirm that it was coming in the West. I already scanned them, but never extracted the single cards from the scans. I don't think I will be able to make a great article out of it, but if you don't mind that, I can see what I can do.--Mister Wu (talk) 17:36, 8 November 2016 (EST)

Collector's Pins?[edit]

Alright, so there are these Mario collector's pins that are sold in stores, and I think they should definitely be added to the list. But which category should be added to?? I was thinking probably either clothing or accessories, but I honestly don't know which one to go with. Heck, they could even arguably go in keychains. Which one should I put them in?? Help me out here guys!--TheDisneyGamer (talk) 21:10, 2 April 2017 (EDT)

Accessories, probably. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 21:22, 2 April 2017 (EDT)
