    Default Interesting Super mario world japanese toy

    I though this maye be of interest for some of you nintendo fans

    Waay back in the 90's Epoch released a toy based on super mario world where the aim is to navigate your way through a motorised maze.

    Over 10 years later i finally managed to get my hands on one. As far as i know there are no pics or even mention of this toy on the net. All i remember is that mean machines or C+VG (uk games mags) ran a competition back in the 90's to win one.


    (Thanks goto Yakumo for the pics) (sorry 56k users)






    I remember that there wad a mario kart one that used marbles as well.

    There were loads of them made in the 80's & 90's by different companies.

    I remember one made by Tomy called Kong mountain. Ooh and there was screwball scramble as well.

    Don't know if you had them in the us as well, im guessing you did as you have loads of cool toys that never released in the uk.

    I think any kid in the late 80's/early 90's who went near a KayBee Toys saw one of those things. I think they used to have penguins most of the time, they'd slide around and go up stairs and stuff.

    Not those, those were just moterized things that moved on there own. THese you had to move the marble yourself through an obstacle course that moved and youd press buttons to pop the marble into the air at the right time and stick it to a magnet whic pulled it to the other side of a gap and such. These were pretty cool....the penguin stuff sucked.

    This what your referring to? Kongman by Tomy

    Donkey Kong clone called Kongman used to swivel at the top and throw marbles down at you or something? Think it’s still in the garage, ill have to try and rip it out.

    YES

    Thats exactly what kong mountain looks like. That looks like the hand held version. They made a bigger version as well later on.

    KONGMAN! That's it! I found one on eBay also...same pic that importaku posted is on the auction. I'm going to get that one unless someone on here has one there wanting to sell.
