@subpopz Except society does not view sports as a childish interest to have. Video Games particularly the likes of which Nintendo makes can at times be viewed as childish, as well as the figurines they make as well. If you're making the case nothing should be defined by age groups that's one thing, but if your interest is in let's say pacifiers do you feel the same?

@Nintendoforlife If somebody loves pacifiers, power to them. How does it affect me? It literally doesn't. I honestly don't care what people do or what their interests are as long as they're not hurting anybody.
Who has time to worry about and judge what other people do with their life/money?

That's what a poor sport would say. Trying to make a obscene comparisons is just that pathetic and poor judgement and reflects badly on yourself. The Amiibo aren't just figurines they serve a purpose but that is already lost on you. But least you forget they have $$ behind them and can be sold for a pretty sum when the time comes. These are highly sought after Amiibo and there is never enough for everyone. So your delusional world is crumbling around you but then again that isn't anyone but your own fault for it.

Exactly my thoughts and put this way you can pass the games down to your kids or grand-kids and so on...it keeps giving here. It has nothing to do with age or gender or orientation - NSW is for all ages and the more that enjoy it - well your NSW was a well worth the investment that will keep them Gaming. Remember Nintendo was a kid to adult game and and back. Why else is NIN a family friendly system and sells better then xbox and ps. IMHO

I agree that we shouldn't be too worried about the judgement of others, but you can go too far with that mindset and make a complete fool of yourself. Learned that the hard way in high school.

@ReaderRagfish To be fair, it’s not hygienic to collect used diapers. Especially to keep them in your locker...

Plenty of people collect Amiibo and all sorts of other stuff for different reasons. Baseball cards, bottle caps, stamps, games, Disney ornaments, books by certain authors...etc. I only have five Amiibo (all Legend of Zelda related) but would probably own more - including characters from other franchises - if some of them weren't so hard to find.

What's acceptable or not acceptable is completely up to one's own perceptions. Granted, there are ways to cross the line, but I highly doubt you're a rampant hoarder or are collecting anything illegal.

Bottom line - if you enjoy collecting Amiibo, feel free to keep doing so! Stop if you want, but of your own volition.

Edit: I work with a guy roughly your age who collects and assembles LEGO (mostly Star Wars) sets as a hobby. Some would find it kiddy and childish, but I personally think it's cool!

@HobbitGamer Nice try, but everyone knows I prefer dried up raisins over used diapers. Get your facts right next time.

I’m not far behind you. I’m 32 and I own every single one. I’m not ashamed, until I think about how much money I spent.

@thesilverbrick : Same here. I dread to know how much I have spent (and will continue to spend) on my plastic (and woolly) children.

Some of us collect the Amiibo line series and that cost a pretty penny to do so as well. But as you said they collect for varied reasons.

Some learn the hard way here.

That's what I would say also.

Actually I think that is cool too LEGO has appeal for all age try making those huge LEGO figures that you see being displayed and ask yourself can you meet the challenge.

I on the same page with both of you upper 40's and still love gaming it's something that challenges me to best my Nephews whom can play more since they have more free time...that sucks for us older Gamers. But if you don't want them send them over to me as well just like Likethepear said.

@Silly_G I’m glad I’m not alone, haha. And I’m set to spend another untold fortune on the new Smash characters. I am praying that they don’t rerelease the whole series with updated poses for the old characters to match the new artwork. I wouldn’t be able to stop myself from buying them all again.

@thesilverbrick I'm pretty sure they said only new characters are getting new amiibo and the old ones will be restocked at a slightly lower price

@Kimyonaakuma I sure hope so. I wouldn’t mind updated versions of Link, Zelda and Ganondorf to match their overhauled redesigns, but the other characters really don’t need any updating.

Amiibos are for babies. I myself am 3 years old and I decided earlier this year to give up on them : I sold my collection and gave the money to charity. I felt like it was the right thing to do and I encourage everyone to follow my example. Yet, I consider tolerance to be of the utter importance and wouldn't judge any of my peers or their choices. Therefore I would advocate for you to do as you please !
