The Starting Planet of the Flipswitch Galaxy.

A Flipswitch Panel is an object that first appeared in Super Mario Galaxy. It's now in Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Super Mario 3D World. It usually starts off with just a blue colored switch with a question mark (?) on it. Although, The Gateway Galaxy had Flipswitch Panels with just circles on them, not ? or !. However, A Flipswitch Panel will not change until Mario or Luigi, steps on it. When either one of them steps on the panel, it will turn yellow and will have an exclamation mark (!) on it. A galaxy called the Flipswitch Galaxy is made entirely out of Flipswitch Panels. Some Panel missions may have Cosmic Clones in the missions. When all panels are yellow, the panels turn green and they will have squares on them and something will be unlocked.
