I've always been a fan of Princess Peach. Every since my obsessive pre-teen self wasted away too many perfect summer days trying to catch a glimpse of the elusive Princess Toadstool in Super Mario Brothers, I wished for a female protagonist to play. It wasn't too terribly long until we got Super Mario Bros 2 here in the US and I was floating around tossing turnips and eggs to my heart's content. But Peach never got all the cool transformations like Mario and Luigi. It wasn't until 2013's Super Mario 3D World that she graduated into a dynamic transforming character like the rest. While the pink Cat Peach power-up may have stolen the show for most players, I was personally more thrilled by the Fire Flower version. It's the basic power-up I had always wanted from those early days on my NES. These K'NEX blind bags are a really fun collectible and the Fire Peach was an unexpected addition. My fingers are crossed for a Rosalina to round out my princesses. Let's check out Peach below!
Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!
I love how the Fire Flower Peach has a different hairpiece.
They could've easily gotten away with a straight-up repaint.
