I'm in the same boat. The Original Eight aren't all that interesting to me (they've all had plenty of toys, many of which I own) and the additional four aren't really my favorites. In fact, if I had to get one of these, I might actually get Wii Fit Trainer. She was fun at E3.
But what I'm really waiting for is Ness, Mega Man, and/or possibly Pit and Palutena. I hope at least one of those comes out before the Wii U release.
I just pre-ordered them all from Amazon but I'm probably going to cut it back to four or five to start with. But since I can't decide which ones I really want first, I went ahead and pre-ordered them all for now lol
These seem expensive, how does this price compare to Skylanders and Disney Infinity figures? Man, stores must be struggling to find space for all this junk, they're going to need like a separate videogame figure section soon!
The only scenario I can image where I would get some of these is if they function more like DLC in future games and unlock significant content, but I would wait for some sort of sale of course.
