Ever since their first reveal during Splatoon 3's dedicated August Direct, we have been eagerly awaiting news of the Splatland's newest amiibo. Then, last week, things began to shift when an online listing seemed to suggest that the three interactive figures could be coming our way soon, and at the weekend trio were found on display during the Heroes Comic Con/Made in Asia convention — giving Gaming Boulevard the chance to make the above detailed first-look video. (Thanks, Nintendo Soup!)

The display holds all three upcoming Splatoon 3 amiibos, consisting of Yellow Inkling, Blue Octoling and Smallfry - pictures of which have previously been limited to the promotional lineup which appeared during the Direct presentation.

Gaming Boulevard's video gives us the first idea of what the amiibo will look like up close, showing off the figures' shining ink and detailed bodywork. The screaming Smallfry remains a favourite of ours - that expression is even better in amiibo form!

We still don't know exactly when these amiibo will be made available to buy, with the information currently sitting in that nebulous 'releasing this Winter' window, though we are hopeful that this means a release date will be with us in the next few weeks.
