Because what you really needed was miniature automobile versions of Mario and co, an official partnership between Hot Wheels and Nintendo has produced the below six toy cars. And they're mostly ridiculously cute if you can ignore those flesh coloured bonnets.
The collection is "headed to stores now" in the US according to the official Hot Wheels Twitter but there's no info on UK availability just yet. Maybe that'll give you time to decide whether you love or hate them.
