Amiibo figures can now be preordered for $12.99 apiece. The first dozen are Mario, Donkey Kong, Link, Samus, Kirby, Pikachu, Fox, Yoshi, Wii Fit Trainer, Villager, Peach, and Marth.

In addition to being featured in Smash Bros Wii U + 3DS, these guys will also be used in Mario Kart 8, Captain Toad, Mario Party 10, and Yoshi's Wooly World.

Will you be picking any of them up? Which ones?

Isn't it kind of a violation that Captain Falcon isn't delivering a Falcon Punch in his Ambiibo?

@PogueSquadron

Ya, that, and wouldn't that pose have been more stable?

Some of the new ones are up for pre-order on Amazon. I nabbed Mega Man, considering Sonic. It's strange that Rosalina isn't up for pre-order yet...

Unless Rosalina is one of those other retailer-specific ones.... rumor is that not just Shulk will be tied to a retailer.

I think I'll buy Mario and Bowser. Bowser's bulky frame and strong pose makes him look cool as an amiibo figure, and Mario is just too iconic to pass up. I really like Pittoo...err...Pit, too.

@AbdoooooWell it looks like the amiibos basically just use the Smash portraits as inspiration, which is why Luigi has that super weird falling down pose.

Also if anyone is a GCU member at Best Buy, your discount applies so they should only be at $10 before tax for you. I'm tempted but I just don't know....they look super cool so they're awesome from that standpoint. They just seem a little low in value in the game department, at least for right now. And I know I'd feel kind of slighted that I spent $10, and if I want even more of this bonus content, I'd have to shell out another $10...and then another, and then another.

I'm more or less resigned to just getting one because it looks cool, and if it adds anything to my games, then that's fun. I can't look at it any other way and feel good about the purchase.
