I still don't see why I would want these for games.

As figures they look kind of neat, though.

So does anyone actually want these for their functionality? I feel like Nintendo really dropped the ball with amiibos. They succeeded in making them attractive as collectable statues but failed in providing a reason to want them for what they provide to the gaming experience.

Oh man this is going to get expensive...

Also, I want Luigi, Rosalina, Reggie, and Iwata as Amiibo figures.

Thanks.

I wonder if the NFC works through the plastic or if it has to be a direct contact in order for it to register.
If it's anything like the Skylanders/Infinity figures, it'll work through the plastic.

So yeah they'll work through the plastic :p

10€ for a figurine like this is okay in my book, yet sadly that means that I probably have to spend something like 300-500€ for all the Smash Bros. figurines alone.

Wallet am cry indeed. :(

Honestly, I just want Fox and Samus. Not really into the other ones.

I'll be all over Earthbound amiibos if they make them, though.

So do I need one of these to do the moveset customizations they showed for smash in the direct a couple of months ago?

Why do I have a feeling these will be very hard to get my hands on for the first few months they are released? I fucking want them all though, and just when I thought my collecting days were behind me too.
