Does anyone know the price of these Amiibos cause im buying like 5 of them this year.

I don't enjoy suffering alone. However, I don't mind making others suffer alone.

These look great! Though I doubt I'll be getting any, (well, maybe Mega Man) maybe I'll get some for my nephews.

I like the idea that they will work across multiple games. But like someone previously said, As long as they are just a non-essential feature in a game, which they will be in the already announced games, it won't force kids (and their parents) to buy a ton of figures, and thus will only be for collectors.

For this to take off they need software that is directly dependant on these amiibo figures, where the figures feed directly into the software.

Hence, the unannounced software Bill Trinen was referring to:

For instance, a pokemon game where your pokemon roster is only from the physical figures you have / have traded with friends. Could be like a Pokémon stadium game where you either import your roster from a 3DS game, or your amiibo's. Gives players the possibility to interact with the game, even if they don't own a 3DS! And that gives a way for friends who own a Wii U, but maybe not a 3DS and vice versa, to interact with each other across platforms.

And that right there, is actually a pretty interesting concept I think.

For things like Mario Kart 8 I can imagine custom vehicles and costumes. Nothing significantly game changing though, so it might only be cosmetic things, or the vehicle stats correspond to stuff already in the game.

The "collect em all" nature of pokemon though, THAT right there is the money maker.

For Yoshi's Wooly World, I could imagine a bunch of really nice knitted plush yoshi's, you know like actual wooly yoshi's! Could be a nice switch up from the static (but beautiful) smash figures with the smash coin base.

Those pictures look great! I definitely want to nab the Link, Samus, and Zelda figurines.

Imagine a Wii u game which plays like tomodachi life but with your amiibos, and they get basic actions but get more events and traits based on what games you use them with, like maybe after using the Mario one on Mario kart he starts driving around places or racing

Seeing Amiibo's interact with MK8, Cpt Toad, and Yoshi's world, I wondered if by using an Amiibo gives you a DLC track/level themed by the character you use. For example you could use Link and get a Hyrule themed racetrack in MK8, or use the Wii Fit trainer on Yoshi and get a Wii Sports style level. This would echo what Sega did with the Sonic LW DLC with Zelda and Yoshi.

If this was the case, I could see myself buying these figures for more tracks just for MK8.

Isn't it obvious that Falco Lombardi is actually a parrot?

I believe that it was confirmed at E3 that series 1 of these things will include:

Mario
Peach
LInk
PIkachu
Donkey Kong
Samus
Wii Fit Trainer
Villager
KIrby
Yoshi

Personally, I think it's kind of weird that NIntendo is starting out with Villager and Wii Fit Trainer, as most casual costumers will probably not care about those characters, and there will be tons of them left over on store shelves. Starting out with the Mario characters, Link, Kirby, and Pikachu was a smart idea though, because their franchises are HUGE. Samus could go either way though. I see some casuals that recogize her, and some who don't. I personally will be starting off series 1 with Samus and KIrby. Then eventually I'll get Link and Mario. I really wanted PIt, but he's probably in series 2 with Marth, Zelda, and Fox.

Hopefully NIntendo can get the rights to even DO the third party characters as amiibos. I'm really suprised that Sonic isn't in the first series, as he is a very popular character with kids.

Wow, those pictures look awesome. At least at this stage of the game, the figures look extremely detailed and polished ... I hope that holds up when they start being mass produced. At any rate, I'm definitely buying ... uhm ... probably all of them lol

It's an interesting concept, but I don't like the example they gave for how they benefit the gameplay. The way they work in Smash Bros. makes it look like they just play the game for you. Have they mentioned what they do in other games?

I wonder if they'll make a customizable amiibo for the Mii's so you can carry all your stats from games like mk8, ssb or whatnot so if you go to a friends you can take it with you and pull up all your stats. That d be interesting.

That would definitely be in their best interest to set up some kind of service where you could place an order for your customized Mii Amiibo and get it in the mail after a couple weeks or something. They could charge more for that sort of service, and I bet a lot of younger kids would love to have something like that to carry around to friends' houses and instantly load up stats and stuff into games they play. For us older folks it would also be a nice little collection piece haha

That's quite expensive.. Might get one just for fun, but I won't be wasting my money on getting them all.

£12.85 = € 16.03 = $21.81 (My guess for the actual price is about €15.00, and $15.00)

Shame if this is the actual price as £10 was more my ball park just means I'll be getting a smaller number then originally planned.

Expensive? That's like half the price I was expecting.

Since they said it will be on par with Skylanders (£8.99) & Disney Infinity (£9.99) it's more than I thought it would be, maybe they chucked them up at that price without knowing the details yet just so they can get pre-orders.

If these come out to about 20 bucks a pop I won't be surprised or upset in the least. These aren't just action figures.

@Dreamz Wait what you thought they try to charge $30 an amiibo you realise this is aimed at kids with parents footing the bill.

Only the entry-level Skylanders are nine quid. The more popular ones are normally up to £15, so that seems okay to me. I expect my daughter will want Pikachu; for myself probably Donkey Kong - I like to stick with the classics!

The more expensive Skylanders are the big, light up and movable parts ones, the normal ones are £9.
