They'll be in Round 2, as well as at least one other famous McDonald's toy set that I really wanted to put in Round 1. Why weren't they in Round 1? Easy, I need to complete the sets in question via eBay. My Mario and Luigi are both beat to shit and I want to include the Mario U-3 toy, since it was probably the best of the five Mario toys.
I was so fucking pissed as a kid when I couldn't get Raccoon Mario and instead had to settle for gay luigi on a cloud. Luckily one of my relatives (the same one who bought us Mario 3, uncoincidentally) bought double orders of all the happy meals and gave me and my bro complete sets of 'em.

And when uppity parents saw that their kindergartners were getting toys designed to promote a PG-13 movie with featuring electrocution, a sexy leatherclad bombshell, nose-biting, Christopher Walken, and a disembodied arm, they did what uppity parents are wont to do: piss and moan until they irreversibly damage the world.
As for the Mario toys, I think I only had the goomba and the red paratroopa. I *might* have had Mario, too, but I can't remember.
