Nintendo - ROSALINA!

World of Nintendo 2.5" Figures Wave 36 - Rosalina - Jakks Pacific 2022

Rosalina was a non-playable "Princess" character in 2007's Super Mario Galaxy. She was living in the Comet Observatory with her adopted lumas (creatures that look like plump Power Stars). Bowser attacked the observatory stealing all her Power Stars and she pleads with Mario to help retrieve them. I loved her design from that early introduction. She had a unique look but fit right in with Peach and Daisy. Her impact on fans must have been great as well because she has since appeared in more than 20 other games. Her appearances range from a fully playable character to a mere cameo, but her presence has been constant and I knew she would eventually have to be included in the World of Nintendo toyline. What I wasn't expecting was the surprise rapidity of both the long-awaited Daisy and Rosalina released within a couple months of each other. Of course, all these ladies makes the absence of a Pauline figure pretty glaring. I'll bet we see her in the line soon. Let's check out Rosalina below!

Rosalina has swivel arms and a ball-jointed head. 
She is much more rubbery than previous rigid-plastic figures in this line. Her hair is soft and pliable.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here are the three 2.5" World of Nintendo Princesses so far: Daisy, Rosalina, and Peach.
