Japanese collectible toys are generally cool to the Nth degree, especially when based on either whippy turds or video games. In the latter category comes a brand new range of build-it-yourself mosaics from TomyTec, all of which depict classic Nintendo characters.

The ¥483 (US$4) dot-s packages consist of 250 colored pegs, a perforated board to plug them into and a plastic base to make it all stand up. Each box is unmarked, so fevered collectors have no way of knowing which Mario, Zelda or Donkey Kong character they're going to spend the next three minutes slapping together.

There's several online shops that sell Japanese toys. I'm not going to advertise for anyone, but try a search for "gashopon" and get rid of non-english results and you're there.
