I was expecting them to be $9.99 at most. I wasn't expecting $12.99. I was honestly hoping for $4.99, near the Pokemon figures that also have NFC compatibility. But, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt to see them in person and gauge the quality plus, I'd like to know all that they are able to do, before I give final judgment on the price.
I don't know. I mean, even basic action figures are like $10 at TRU nowadays so it isn't that steep if it is a figure and more. But how much more? I mean, don't you just get junk that could easily be free / cheap DLC or something?
The only good thing I see from these is that there will finally be action figures for some Nintendo characters that don't have them.
Still kind of seems pricey though. I know I said most action figures are at least $10 nowadays but that seems pricey too.
I'd like to have more details on what these things are actually capable of, but right now they seem to be some sort of cross between a memory card and a content unlocking device, which is pretty ridiculous even at a lower price. Maybe they can do all sorts of crap that Nintendo haven't told us about yet for some reason, but I'm not exactly expecting these things to make me a pot roast or compliment my choice of pants.
2 bucks won't make a huge difference to me. They will be pricey either way. These figures will definitely cost approximately 25 US dollars over here in Brazil. Toys and action figures can't escape the wrath of our taxes either.
Still, I'm definitely going to find a way to get Amiibos for at least my 3 favorite characters.
