Got Lucario and Greninja the other day. I thought I'd never get this far. Pre-ordered Ryu too.

I had a wave 1 Marth amiibo but I gave it away to someone random.

Other than that I have both Bowser amiibo, Charizard and a Lucas I picked up for my friend. Also bought a Link and Lucario for my other friend.

Next are Ness and Duck Hunt.

Not sure if I've said this before, but I feel like there have been some missed opportunities for amiibo series. I realize that it takes time to make amiibos, and they can't just crank them out whenever they feel like it (plus, if they release too much in a short timeframe, they risk people picking and choosing since they can't afford or don't want to spend that much at once), but some games seem tailor-made for amiibo series and they haven't taken advantage of it.

Some examples off the top of my head:

Pokken Tournament: it seems pretty likely that a Pokemon series of amiibo will sell well, and basing it on Pokken Tournament would narrow the selection process down greatly, cutting it down to some of the most popular Pokemon (and Chandelure). It seems like it would help that four of the Pokemon in Smash are also in Pokken Tournament, meaning that support for them is already in place in other games, and it could act as a restock of sorts for rarer ones like Lucario.

Hyrule Warriors: amiibo for Zelda characters, if I recall correctly, are some of the best-selling amiibo out there. A Zelda series seems pretty much inevitable, whether it's for Hyrule Warriors or Zelda U, and Hyrule Warriors seems like it would offer a more diverse selection of characters. Not sure how well characters like Lana, Cia, Volga, Wizzro, or Agitha would sell, but it seems like the others would more than make up for it, and in terms of functionality, they could work similarly to the currently-available Zelda amiibos, giving high-level weaponry for that specific character.

Star Fox Zero: we already know that the game has amiibo support, with Fox's amiibo turning the Arwing into the SNES version. While there might be more functionality that hasn't been said yet (I don't think they'd leave Falco's amiibo out), they could do a set of the classic Star Fox team, with each of them changing the Arwing and other vehicles into the versions from other games (for example, Peppy unlocks the Star Fox 64 versions of the vehicles, while Slippy gives skins inspired by Star Fox Adventures or Command). It would also create the opportunity to make the Bayonetta amiibo more useful, by turning it into the Arwing from the Bayonetta level that seemingly got Platinum this job in the first place.

Mario and Sonic at the 2016 Olympics: this ties in with a few other games, like Mario Party 10 and Mario Tennis, but I find it odd that they haven't made a second set of Mario amiibo, especially since it pretty much writes itself. (Wario, Rosalina, and DK were already in Mario Party 10's amiibo mode, plus Waluigi, Diddy, and Bowser Junior) A Sonic series of amiibo would pretty much sell like hotcakes, though negotiations with Sega would probably make it less appealing than just sticking to their own series. It just seems odd that the only amiibo functionality that this game has is just with Mario and Sonic.



What other games or series do you think should get lines of amiibo?

Pretty sure it's already been confirmed that Pokken Tournament arcade machines have built-in amiibo support - yes, you read that right, the arcade machines. I'm not sure what specifically they'll do - probably let you transfer your preferred fighter/support groups and save stats and whatnot - but that pretty much confirms we'll be getting amiibos for each of the playable fighters, at least.

Star Fox Zero: we already know that the game has amiibo support, with Fox's amiibo turning the Arwing into the SNES version. While there might be more functionality that hasn't been said yet (I don't think they'd leave Falco's amiibo out), they could do a set of the classic Star Fox team, with each of them changing the Arwing and other vehicles into the versions from other games (for example, Peppy unlocks the Star Fox 64 versions of the vehicles, while Slippy gives skins inspired by Star Fox Adventures or Command). It would also create the opportunity to make the Bayonetta amiibo more useful, by turning it into the Arwing from the Bayonetta level that seemingly got Platinum this job in the first place.
During one of SF0's accouncements (maybe the first), they showed a prototype Arwing amiibo that could actually transform into a chicken walker just like in the game. No telling whether other Star Fox team members will be getting them.

Wanna hear a terrible tease? The GAME store in my area has Ryu, Roy, Japan Rob and the New Lego Dimension sets on the shop floor... but they're marked with coming soon stickers and they won't sell them to you. I guess they got the stock in before the sell date but what does this accomplish? Only people helped by this are stock room guys and shop lifters.

Got :4ryu: - they had plenty of :4rob: and :4feroy: as well, but we had already ordered ROB from Australia, and my brother wasn't sure if he'd get enough use out of Roy to justify it.

Now I'm just waiting for two more amiibos to come out (:4cloud::4bayonetta:), and I'll be completely satisfied with my collection.

I am just a casual follower of the Amiibo craze, but please tell me they released two ROB Amiibo's with the ever-so-slightest color variation just to **** with people...

At first it was cool to see Famicom colors in Japan and NES colors in America, but to release them vice versa seems like a sad cash-grab because you know there's people out there who need to have everything.

So... I finally got the Mega Yoshi amiibo today. I also picked up Ryu.

I'm still waiting for Famicom R.O.B., standalone Digby, Kapp'n, Rover, and Timmy & Tommy to arrive in the mail. Hopefully this week.

I still need to find Roy.

Got a slightly-creased Ryu in the mail... fortunately, I know somebody who would want him, so I'll replace him eventually. Glad stocks are doing well. Just waiting for Roy in the mail and Cloud/Corrin/Bayo releases.

Also I really, really need help tracking down the 20th anniversary Jirachi plush...

March 18th haul for me included Roy, Ryu, Famirob, and gold megaman.

Gegaman has a smash base so i guess its smash collection.

I looked at the amiibo compatibility list, and apparently Roy and Ryu are incompatible with Super Mario Maker. Unless an update is released to support them, you won't be getting any Mystery Mushroom costumes of them.

Ryu's definitely incompatible - I tried it when I got his amiibo. Hoping they update it to include his costume at some point, like they did with the Midna and Wolf Link amiibo. (Probably when the Ryu and Roy amiibos come out in Japan - I want to say that's in April, but I'm not sure)

I felt slightly compelled to purchase the Gold Mega Man amiibo, due to the Smash base, and myself strictly collecting just the Smash collection. Even going as far to buy multiple G&W for the bases for display purposes.

After using the Gold Mega Man amiibo, and realizing there isnt even the slightest bonus and it acts just as a regular Mega Man, it's def not worth the purchase.

Realistically theres no real way to tell the difference between a custom painted one and an official one. Unless theres something in the serial numbers.

I'm hoping for an unique identifier in the NFC chip exists so that its possible an update may give an exclusive unlock. Even if it's just a mario maker suit.

I know I should have expected this, but was anticipating the gold/ silver mario treatment for this amiibo at the very least.

I thought Gold did something special in the MM collection... glad to know it's not that special.

Just curious, have you tried it in Mario Maker as well?

Just got a :4ryu: amiibo the other day. I still have no idea what to name it.

So far I have the following amiibo:
:4wario:,:4drmario:,:4luigi:,:luigi2:(Mario Party), :4link:,:4ganondorf:,:4villager:, :4ryu:, and
(Tom Nook).


Next I'll probably be getting amiibos of :4cloud:, :4lucas:, and :4ness:. I may also get a :4mario:amiibo and/or a :4bowserjr: one. After those I have no idea which ones to get.

I named mine Dan. Figured it was time for Dan to get the spot light XD

I like to name my amiibo after something from the franchise. My meta knight is named after his sword, and sonic is named "i'm waiting." hope that helps a little.

As of now my Smash line of Amiibo collection is nearly complete. Only missing the Mii Fighter 3 Pack and the unreleased DLC characters. Going to start looking into display casing soon. I'll be sure to post a pic once it's all finished.

Amiibos are a neat way to collect your favorite Nintendo characters without paying serious money for figurines or life size models, and they can be used for a wide variety of games! Even with the nice features Amiibo have I was just curious if everyone was tired of Amiibo, can't get enough, or you're neutral about it so I made a poll just to see what's up!



Vote plz :)

Hey I remember you! How have you been? I like your poll instead of throwing the casual yes, no, and I don't care. I hit im tired of them because they saw how well Skylanders did with Skylanders Swap Force selling around $4 billion. Plus Nintendo is good at games. In the end it's not terrible especially thanks to them about affecting other games rather than just one particular one.

Who would want to unbox the figures anyway am I right ;)

I'm doing fine thanks! I honestly see no reason for them not to continue this for awhile, especially because of Skylanders. You can get your favorite Nintendo character for fairly cheap, and it can be used in more than just one game. While people complain about it it's really a win-win either way.

Hey for Duck hunt amiibo. Is the effect "Item hurler" something that would apply to him? The effect gives 1.5x attack power to thrown items, but I don't know if any of his B moves would apply. Can anyone help?

None of Duck Hunt's specials count as items, so the equipment wouldn't do anything.

The Item Hurler bonus effect only increases the power of the items that you've thrown "after" picking them up. None of Duck Hunt's projectiles are actual items, so they won't get the power boost at all. For PAC-MAN, however, he can get the power boost from the Item Hurler bonus effect, but only if he manages to pick up his own fruit, which is easier to pull off with the Lazy Fruit custom special.

I just wanted the Smash Bros one and I only need the last few.

That said, K.K. Slider was tempting. "He's on a stage, he counts!"

Why'd you quote me for this rather than the person who asked the question? As far as I can tell, you're not correcting me.
