Move over, lawn gnomes; here comes Giant Super Mario!

To adorn your front yard. You know you want one.

Nintendo

If you have $3000 burning a hole in your pocket and are looking for a hot new lawn decoration that won't need to be replaced with seasonal changes (unless you're that weirdo who keeps the inflatable Santa up all year round), man, you are going to love hearing this. Someone is making these 5-foot-tall Super Mario figures, previously only sold to retailers, available to the average consumer. (Well, the average consumer with an extra $3000 on hand.) Now, you can have a Mario of your very own.

Imagine the possibilities! They could upstage your wacky neighbor's lawn gnomes like nothing else. Except, um, putting an enormous Super Mario in your front yard might make you the wacky neighbor.
