Are you ready for the Little Mac attack? Nintendo's modern revival of Punch-Out!! is still a month and a half away from release in North America, but that's not stopping the official tie-in merchandise from springing up for ordering. Amazon.com has a listing for something called the Heavyweight Contender Kit that is full of superfluous Punch-Out!! merchandise. $35 gets you the following:
- King Hippo Crown Replica
- King Hippo Desktop Punching Bag
- King Hippo Boxer Shorts (Size: Large)
- Doc Louis Remedy Chocolate Bar
- Kit does not include Punch-Out!! the game. Game sold separately.
It comes with the shorts and the crown? You know, I have a wound that I need to keep bandaged in the same place as King Hippo's legendary weak spot. If I buy this kit, gain some weight, shave my head, and become very ugly, I could be the ultimate authentic King Hippo lookalike.
