    "What, the prospect of apple fries (?) and a tub of macaroni & cheese doesn't sound appealing enough to you, purveyor of fine, fatty American fast foods? What about some crap Nintendo toys?

    Yeah, now you're interested. Cashing in on America's love of both active video gaming and passive waist expansion, Burger King have begun offering cheap, Nintendo Wii-inspired toys as part of their Club BK kid's meals.

    There are ten to collect, ranging from a Paper Mario puzzle (use the magnetic Wii Remote toy to avoid the blocks!) to a Metroid Challenge (use the magnetic Wii Remote toy to propel the ball through the maze!) to a Light-Up Luma (use the magnetic Wii Remote toy to...oh, he doesn't use it, he just lights up).

    Most are cheap, most are nasty, but the adorable Luma and the Boo might just be worth the calories."

    I know theres some collectors out there that really like these crap toys, so I figured I'd post this.

    The diddy kong toy looks great.

    Shame the UK won't be getting them and there's no BK in my town.

    The Diddy Kong one... does he roll or does he just drag his arse along the floor like a dog with piles?

    I remember Taco Bell once had a Star Fox toy... you attempted to launch a ball at some thing in a thing you held in your hands. I've been wanting to find a pic or video of the thing lately, but I haven't seen any leads yet >.>

    Most of these look like cheap cash-ins [​IMG]

    The commercial sucks ass trying to advertise these...

    But I thought they showed more toys than the image provided in the first post.

    They had Yoshi in a kart, and something else...

    I might ask my mom to pick some Burger King up after work XD

    EDIT:

    But I kinda want that Luma and teh Wiimote with that helicopter...thing.
