Default Are you interested in amiibo?

So several amiibos are launching with Smash Bros. Wii U, they look pretty nice and I was wondering if anyone here was planning to collect them.

Yup. Have Samus, Marth, Pit, and Captain Falcon ordered, and I'll definitely get Rosalina and Duck Hunt when they're available.

I still don't fully understand the use of Amiibo in Smash Bros. I've ordered the Diddy Kong one to try it out and even if I find I don't care for it, at least the figures are still pretty cool to collect. I might also get Bowser Jr. (hoping for ones of his Koopalings alts as well, but that's very doubtful) and Toon Link when/if they release.

Apparently Amiibo characters are also going to be used in Mario Kart 8, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and Yoshi's Woolly World. Pretty curious to see what their use in Mario Kart 8 will be.

I still don't quite understand, what do you get for buying the figure, if you already have the Character in the game?

The figure acts as a cpu that you can train and fight against with its own stats

This. That's pretty much the main reason for getting them. Man, I'd like to get them all but I don't really have the money to do that. Well, I do but I should be saving some money. So, I'll probably just have Link for a while and get a couple more down the line.

There's so many that I want to get, but I'll probably limit myself to Robin, Greninja, Link, Marth, and Megaman

It may be fun to collect them. Leave them in the original packaging for about 20 years and hopefully they will appreciate in value...

Oh and to answer the question: No, I have no interest in Amiibo. I have no interest in Smash Bros, and so far that is the only use for them, right?

There goes my hope of ever getting all of them. Guess I'll just have to stick to my favorites. I really DID want those MK8 racing suits though. ;-;

Got my Samus Amiibo today I want Donkey Kong, but the toilet support it got is making me not want to buy it. Will post some pics tomorrow. I'm glad Bowser, Rosalina & Luma, and Ike don't have weird supports. Hopefully Zero Suit Samus doesn't have a support up her butt.

Note to Retro: When you make the third DKC game and you release an Amiibo line for it choose poses that won't need supports.

I was going to collect all of them, to think maybe they would appreciate in value in a time period if I have the entire collection. Then I thought, nah.

I might consider getting some when I can get the chance. They'd make great collector items.

Went to Toys"R"Us yesterday and while they had a lot of amiibos some looked like they were forcefully shaken so the amiibos were out of their place holder. Didn't take any picks at the time. Might go there again to take pics but not to buy any.

it just seems like a money-grabber to get more money from people who already have the game.

They are kind of cute. There are definitely way too many for me to collect them all, though. I bought my brother and myself each a Link Amiibo, because we both always mained him in every game (it was always a showdown between the Links, a bit like Serena and Venus Williams). I also bought him a Sonic because Sonic is his favourite video game character. Also bought a Villager for myself because AC is one of my favourites IPS.

I collected all of the Disney Infinity Marvel Characters and never felt fulfilled in the collection, so when these launched I didn't think it wise to collect them all.

Big mistake as they are WAY more collectable and rare! Too late to start now so I'm only picking up the ones I really want, but I wish I had had the drive when they first launched.

So far I've got:
Peach, Link, Zelda, Villager, Little Mac, Samus, Yoshi

Hoping to get:
Rosalina, Ike, Kirby, Sonic

I love The Legend of Zelda series and I'm especially enjoying Hyrule Warriors.

So I gave in, and I picked up a Link amiibo today just to see how the amiibo features work.
In the Gamestop I went to, the amiibo display is super nice looking. There's an interactive touch screen where you can watch videos that feature each amiibo character. A little kid was messing with it while I was there.

I can see now why amiibo has done so well.

We got a few...Mario, Peach, Pikachu, and Villager.

Theyre kinda cool, if I was rich I'd collect them all and display them nicely, but I am not.

I do however search through all the amiibos when I see them in any store to see if I can find one with a defect to sell for profit on ebay

like using small characters like toad or lemmy in mk8, if you could dress up those instead of mii's, i probably would've got an amiibo or two

watch amiibo and check out in stores, but haven't bought (yet?)
