What’s in the question mark box? Super Mario towels!

In Japan Banpresto makes all sorts of Super Mario swag, but their latest offering is all about the packaging. Stuffed in a 12 cm question mark box is one of three Super Mario Brothers towels. Imagine someone handing you a question mark block as a holiday gift. How cool would that be?

    That is awesome. What would be cooler is if it was random. I am a big fan of random things. A lot of people are going to argue, “Well you may not get the one you want.”
    So? What is the point of putting it in a Question Mark box…. if it isn’t a mystery?

    just plain awsome =)

  • It’s all bath time fun and games until the customs service thinks you’re importing bombs from Japan and then you’re out a towel.

    That’s pretty freakin’ sweet. Now the real question is: Do I have to assume the Mario block-busting position to get my towel out?

    …Because I will…

    Do you even have to ask? My mind is filled with images of people going at it pinata style, Sans bat.
