I put these up here mostly for tinytoonsbuster, but someone else might be interested in them. I bought a set of these THINKING I was getting "Mario Bottlecaps." Turns out that all the Mario figures are #1-#15, and this set only includes #16-#30, which are all Luigi's. Now, the Fire Mario and Fire Luigi are identical, so no problem there. And the sprite design is exact for both Mario and Luigi with only the colors making the difference. So, a little paint, and any Luigi can be a Mario.

I bought four more caps with the swimming Mario figure, because moltenluv asked for one and TTB wants one as well.

I would like to say that if anyone wants a Mario plate and wants to pick a figure or eight from this lot to put on it, that we can work something out. But truth be told, I'm still way behind, and while I'd like to get some of my money back out of these things (they cost me almost a hundred bucks), it's going to be hard to find the time to do it.

Anyway, thought I"d throw it out there.

I'm too tired to wrap my brain around all of that tonight so I'll try it tomorrow. You don't think it will look weird with that one non-8-bit pyrhana plant and all the 8-bit characters? Don't forget too, you wanted the large SMW text, not the small text.

I"m going right now. The big lettering works fine with a figure or two, but not 4 or 6. I sacrificed the blue plate in my collection just for your plate since you wanted THAT look, lol. I'm working on the bricks, and haven't done the ettering yet, so I can do small lettering if that's what you (now) prefer.

I also have a Strawberry Shortcake I can put on it, if you're REALLY feeling nostalgic.

now i'm a lil confused. ok if 2 figures is cool on my plate that has the big lettering can you make it the flying turtle shell guy and the hammer throwing guy, with the luigi that looks like mario, and the plant. then is that the plate you took your blue plate from or the lv2 one i am gunna have you do? or the underater one i'm gunna have you do =p. on the lv2 one i would like small lettering now with 3 blue goomba's, a blu turtle guy or 2, and the big fire power mario or maybe big mario with the figure that has the fire power plant on it...that would be kinda cool too. but first what is the "blue" plate?

edit...man, we need to talk on the phone or something, this is rough hahaha.

edit again...wait you haven't done the lettering on the first plate even yet? can i still change it to small? and whats a "strawberry shortcake" maybe i know and just forgot, refresh my memory

OK, I just got up, but I'll try to get through this.

The plate you like, the first one in th pics, had a small text for "SuperMarioWorld" and it was on a blue GameStop plate. Pelican released some plates to GameStop in 2-packs. This blue one came from the set with the snakeskin plate. This is the only blue one I have and I don't see THAT set up on eBay anymore. But you wanted the plate to be as close as the original, so I took THAT plate, and painted bricks across the bottom (the whole bottom though). Nothing else has been done to the plate except that. I'm working on painting the details on the bricks. The tan and black are done, I still have to do the pink.

On the original plate, the text was large, but there were only two things attached to the plate: the jumping Mario on the power button and the pop-up Pirhanna plant (or however you spell it - I'm not awake yet). So it was balanced. That plate DID come with a plastic strip with bricks on it that you could attach to your DVD door, and another figure that you could set on top, but those were not in that picture.

The second plate I made was identical except:
The text was small.
The Mario was larger.
I didn't have a pop up plant, so I used the smapper pipe with a different guy on it.
It came with additional figures.

Since the text was smaller, more figures were okay, With larger text, it would have been too crowded.

So here is my suggestion right now. If you look at the bottlecap pic on the far back left, you see a Luigi jumping over a ball of flame. I am repainting one of those as a Mario and was going to use that figure (with flame) on the power button. Put the plant in the same place as the one in the other pic.

THEN it's up to you... I can do large text or small. Small text will look better if you want those other 3-4 figures on it. I can do it with large text, but that will require purring a figure in front of the text. It may look a little crowded but not horrible. In fact, I'm thinking that on this plate, you pay want to just LOAD it with figures and forget text altogether. It's not like you need the text for anyone to understand what it is.

Lastly, I bought four of the swimming figures like I said above. I haven't researched a screenshot of the underwater level, but I was going to do it on a clear blue plate for effect. I also don't know what you have in mind for level 2, so I need a screenshot. Keep in mind the extra work involved if t requires assets that I don't have and have to create from scratch, ie. new design for the floor or a background that isn't one solid color, etc.

Crimeny. I spent $24 on those five Mario bottlecaps last night.

I think I need to list a few of these dupe caps in my store.

hmm, sounds good, but i can't really see that well but it looks like the luigi in the back isnt jumping at all, he's dead. you didn't know that was what happened when you got it by the fire? lol, that's the fire that came out of the ground, it wasn't even on that level of the game where the backround is =/. so if you could use the other one that would be way better =p. i'm still wanting the SMW lettering, and i think the big lettering with only 2 figures works best. i'll let you do up the water one however you are gunna do it. and the level 2 one you don't even have to worry about right now. but it wouldn't be that intricate, you could do it pretty easy i think, here's a small pic what it looks like in level 2
