Originally hailing from Super Mario Bros 2, the Shy Guys aren't quite as iconic as goombas or koopa troopas, but I've always liked their look. Not surprisingly, the Shy Guy has very little articulation. The arms are swivel-hinges and the feet are swivels. Really, that's about all you can expect with a design like that. His accessory is a propellor that plugs into the top of his head. I don't remember Shy Guys flying in SMB2, so I'm guessing that's an ability that showed up in a more recent appearance. I haven't played a new Super Mario game since the Gamecube, so I'm kind of out of the loop in that regard.
