Remember the Mario Kart K'Nex? The ones where King Koopa was packed one per case for some god-awful reason? Well, they're back, and they're better.
This time, there are seven characters instead of just four, and the casepacks are more sane. The only downside? They're blind bagged. D'oh! On the plus side, just like the earliest Lego Minifigure blindbags, there's a way to decipher what's inside.
On the back, above the UPC, is a serial number. The number itself doesn't matter - it must refer to different batches or something, because it has no bearing on the figure in the bag. What you want to look for is a thin line beneath one of the numbers: that line tells you which figure is which.
- Donkey Kong
- Diddy Kong
Remember, it's not the number that counts, but the position in the order. Here, see if you can puzzle it out: which figure was in this bag?
Here's a mnemonic device to help you remember the order:
"Mom barely loves you? Don't tell Daddy!"
Remember that sentence, count which number the small line is under, and you'll have the figure you want.
Look for the boxes in the same place as the last Mario bags: so TRU and Target, but probably not Walmart.
