Someone in California has listed wave 2-5 on ebay. I don’t endorse you go buy it, no matter your excitement (GreatMasterHand tells himself too) but we can gather some information from it:
4″ cases always are boxes of 12. Assuming the seller kept a set for himself or someone else got a set before, we can infer that Inkling Girl and ice Mario are the two that are 3x per case (there are individual listings for them in addition to the set). In the past it has always been the Mario of the wave, and Inkling Girl was a great choice, as I personally will want multiples.
We have another first-run error -_- Bowser Jr. Still has his old scarf. They somehow didn’t switch it to the Sunshine version. This will surely be fixed soon, but a bit upsetting for those who wanted to grab the whole wave immediately. Though good for those who missed Original Jr. and won’t miss the Bob-omb or open hands.
EDIT: The designer at Jakks has just told me that the Sunshine version of Bowser Jr. was never approved. Looks like another Marketing goof like Ice Mario with the red hat or Koopa Troopa with the shell. The Jr pictured now is the one we’re getting…
Ice Mario’s hat was fixed pre-release, so that’s great!….unless you did want something close to Classic inverted-colors Mario..sorry.
A second Star Power Mario…exists for some reason.
Lakitu is the breakout star of the wave, so we all knew he look awesome! I do hope he has hidden elbows somehow like Koopa Troopa’s Knees. Oh you didn’t know? They are brilliantly hidden in his boots! The 4″ Koopas, (including Bowser Jr, and hopefully the Koopalings) have had some of the best articulation in the entire line)
I might be being picky with Inkling Girl, but her face looks off to me. Let me know what you think?
