It looks fine, yes, but it looks nothing like it's actually trying to look like.  It looks like...normal Yoshi.

If they just used these boys as the in-game models, I'd totally be behind it.

I own all of these.

I only have a green one (but the one pictured seems to have different spines than the others and the one I have).
For some reason MarioWiki's merchandise gallery didn't have it available.
May Walkazo always be remembered on MarioWiki for years to come.

Is the green one from a newer print than the ones pictured?

I really don't know how to feel about MK64. I played it today and it isn't as good as I remember.

Karts control well enough (not perfectly) and the game has great music, and multiplayer is the best part. I remember playing this game a lot in birthday parties elsewhere. Battle mode + Block Fort = so good.

But at the same time it's really barren in content and it lacks polish. Graphics are REALLY dated with those muddy, blurry sprites (still better than those Mario Kart DS models lol). Paper Mario 64 had way better sprites for some reason. They look even muddier than SMRPG sprites and I don't know how is that even possible.

It's like without the multiplayer this game is just an uglier Super Mario Kart 2.0 that hasn't aged as horribly but still aged a lot.

I like it way more than the arena that's just a giant circle.

That one is bland but big donut is still worse and emptier. I just like battle arenas where I can hide tbh.

double decker seems to be a good place to hide around too.... compared to block fort with its bright colored landmarks and also green shell hell if the battle lasts long enough

I love green shell hells.

Big donut doesn't allow green shell helling.

That one's the favorite in my family. Block Fort is overrated.

I always loved playing on Block Plaza in MKW (which I hear is just a remake of Block Fort), but Delfino Pier was always my favorite.

not necessarily. block plaza is mostly inspired from a mix of block city and block fort, but otherwise has a unique layout.

my favorite battle course of all time is sherbet rink

It's my least favorite track in the game because holy bloody hell is it so bad to race on. Not only do you have to content with Double Dash's slippery driving and weight physics on a track filled with sheer drops and tons of boost pads, the track topology makes homing items aside from the Spiny Shell lose control and fly into walls or into the abyss 80% of the time they appear on you, when they don't behave this way in any other track of the game. Chain Chomps can fling you off the cliff too due to how the track is designed, which is again mostly exclusive to that particular track, and because of the nature of huge drops, Chain Chomps usually break from your karts.

It ranks among the original Yoshi Valley to be one of the worst-designed tracks in the Mario series. At the very least, N64 Rainbow Road's homing items work consistently on that track as they do for the rest of the game (even though its red shells are terrible too).

It's not even Red Shells that are unusable. The fireballs bounce like rubber balls, the green shells are difficult to snipe, and good luck controlling yourself with some of the stars they litter on the road. I still guess the occasional star on the road is neat but why is GCN Rainbow Road overall so bouncy?
