At the annual Electronic Gaming Expo in Los Angeles I was able to get the voice of the Super Mario Bros., Charles Martinet, to autograph some popular toys for charity. Here they are inside a lightbox, getting ready to go up for auction.
Underneath the figures is Mr. Martinet’s autograph, complete with Mario’s traditional “Woo hoo!” and a happy face. Meanwhile, the writing along the base reads: “Here we gooooo!”
The figures were auctioned off for Child’s Play, a charity that brings popular games to sick and at risk children in hospitals and shelters nationwide. The final amount to charity? $977.58.
