I definitely don't mean to discredit FF. I'm sure it will be a relatively fun experience with friends like Tri Force Heroes was. I feel that if it were a new IP focused on being something like a cool space version of Monster Hunter, it would've done a lot better than being revealed as an old unfinished DSiWare prototype with the Metroid name. Only time will tell if it's actually a great game or not. Here's hoping!

If there any sort of single player content I might pick it up in one of those famed BOGO sales that Best Buy does once in a while. Otherwise I'm not a big enough Metroid fan to care. Although I'd love for the game we get to actually be good.

Metroid Prime Hunters is one of my favorite DS games. I'm totally fine with handheld, totally gutted of its main glory, Metroid Prime (to further clarify: not being sarcastic). But Federation Force LOOKS like the DSiWare title it began its life as. Not only in visuals, but controls, interface, how enemies move, the whole shebang. It shouts cheap. Except its not.

Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong seem to be brand new renders. That's interesting. I've seen all the others before. The Waluigi one is pretty much the standard one except he doesn't hold his mustache. I guess they thought it could be a problem as a figure.

New boxes look great. It's interesting "Donkey" and "Diddy" are larger than "Kong". I never really attributed them as like first names which is what the packaging is implying in my mind. Or maybe space issues?

I love the little Glow in the Dark note on Boo. I kind of want them to do chase variants like Skylanders...but then again I really don't. Ive been collecting Skylanders since they came out and I've never seen a single chase variant.

I really don't see the need in having a Boo amiibo, but it's going to take every ounce of will power not to buy it just because of the stupid glow in the dark gimmick

I've always liked the enemy designs better than the heroes in the Mario universe. As a Genesis kid, I'd never played a Mario game and had antipathy for Mario himself, but I always thought the Goombas and Koopa Troopas and whatnot looked fun.

in short I'mma need that Boo

My opportunity of a full Smash collection has long passed. :p

I really do like the (many!) amiibo I still have though. When I was aiming for the full thing I feel like I didn't actually enjoy the individual figures. I really appreciate the ones I have now. And I don't think having two of the same character would do too well to that end.

Also why I've actually been thinking of foregoing the Girl Inkling and Orange Squid. I really like that they changed the Boy's skin color, so I'm getting him for sure. And then I definitely NEED Marie and Callie. But the different hair and clothes of Girl and literally just a recolor of the Squid (though to be fair what else is there to do with that) aren't doing enough for me to warrant doubling up.


...blabbering about this makes me want to take another collection picture. Get some before the above Splatoon pieces come in and re-arrange the whole thing haha.

If there is anyone still out there who has been on the fence about the Skylander amiibo, Best Buy has the starter sets for as cheap as I've ever seen them. They're even cheaper than if you buy the Skylander amiibo on by themselves ($19.99 vs. $24.99)

Shame we aren't getting a Shy Guy amiibo. Shy Guy is playable in MP9 but sadly that was it for him. If they kept him playable then he'd be an amiibo. :(

Aw well... I got the best amiibo already so it's fine.

I must concur; Waddle Dee is extremely cute.


I've got a few "best" amiibo.

Best Human amiibo: Roy
Best Cute amiibo: Tie between New Kirby and Waddle Dee
Best overall package amiibo: King Dedede
Mandatory one-of-the-best-simply-because amiibo: Lucina

I could probably fit every one I own into its own category though, lol. They all have to win in something!

In all honesty, these new Kirby Amiibos kind of took the wind out of the sails for me on Amiibos. They just don't look as good as the other ones in all other lineups (with the exception of the Mario Party Amiibos which I think look terrible too).

Once Smash is complete, and the Mario Party line, I think I'm out. I didn't even bother with the xenoblade/gears/whatever lineup, nor will I with the BotW Zelda toys.

I don't think the Kirby line looks all that bad. You can tell they put more effort into the Smash line, but still, I just don't think they look all that bad. I didn't think the Mario Party ones did, either, though.
