Today, through a press release, Nintendo confirmed that the figure is real and that it is going to be a Walmart exclusive.

He joins Fireball Mario and the new Super Mario amiibo and has the same functionality as the other two figures.
Mario Party 10 launches on March 20th and comes bundled with the regular Super Mario amiibo. The golden moustache launches that same day, separately. Reports are that Walmart will not be taking pre-orders on this figure so if you want him you might have to work for him.
