General amiibo Discussion Thread
amiibo is certainly turning out to be a big thing in Nintendo's eyes. Whether or not the rewards for utilizing each amiibo is worthy to you, Nintendo plans to implement all sorts of bonuses. It appears right now that every amiibo is meant to do 'something' in each game though games not featuring certain characters may have more limited uses or lesser-valued ones. We've had plenty of threads on here for amiibo and I'm sure that will continue. Still, I wanted to establish a general discussion thread that doesn't have a specific focus or thought. We'll also use this thread for informing the forums about upcoming news regarding new waves of amiibo or new compatibility. Enjoy! Tell us which amiibo you're planning to get! To get the party started, here are the various waves of amiibo on their way, compatibility information from Nintendo's website, and various links to other threads regarding amiibo.

@DrFinkelstein But I don't want to help people I want to help myself!

Just kidding, sort of, but money is kind of tight right now so I'm not really looking to buy toys for other people, lol.

@Mr_Mustache One time I returned a game I got in a B2G1 free and they messed up and gave me full credit. Although that probably wouldn't happen if you tried to return this Amiibo BUT YOU NEVER KNOW.

For what it's worth I thought maybe like nieces or nephews. No like random Negative Worlders or Craigslisters. But alas, I understand your scenario. No worries.


Isabelle appears in Series I and III. Which one do you have?

If I were getting my nieces and nephews Amiibo I would get them ones they have actually heard of! But they get the $5 Nintendo figures from me. Those $5 figures have a pretty decent line-up. Not as good as Amiibos, but not bad.

The one that came with the game. I haven't seen the bottom one yet.

The pose that Digby has up there is the one that I got individually today. Big bummer.
03/27/16, 04:31
BTW is Midna ever coming as a standalone? That is one I'd definitely want too.
03/27/16, 04:35
Seems like a long time since they announced a new series. But maybe it's just me.

Today I had to smack a Jigglypuff amiibo out of my wife's hands at Target. The last thing we need is more of those!

It was pretty dang cute, though...

EDIT: Is it not weird that there aren't already like 1000 Pokemon amiibo because they would sell like Poke-hotcakes?

@J.K. Riki
They announced a Kirby series a couple weeks ago. Dedede, Kirby, Meta Knight and Waddle Dee.
I dislike that they're making new amiibo of characters that are already represented, but at least the new Kirby is pretty cute.

As for Pokemon... Man, that would suck!
03/27/16, 05:58

I dunno, I would be interested in a Squirtle amiibo. :)

I must have missed the Kirby announcement. Man... I like Kirby and all, but I feel like he gets uber-represented from Nintendo more than perhaps his popularity would demand? Feels like, anyway, from games to things like this. And does anyone care about Waddle Dee, really? Seems like such a toss-away character to me. Can't say I'm a huge fan of Dedede outside of Brawl in the Family either.

Oh well. Maybe the next wave will be something new or different. Surprised there was no Slippy/Peppy addition for Star Fox Zero's launch. I imagine Zelda U will have at least one or two...

@ploot You forgot to mention the fact that the Smash Kirby amiibo is basically worthless now because it can't be used to access the UFO power in Kirby Robobot which makes its Kirby series counterpart blatantly superior.
03/27/16, 07:50   Edit:  03/27/16, 07:51
While I might only get Waddle Dee of the Kirby line…

I need to get all five of these…

Splatoon Wave II

04/30/16, 15:01
The Squid Sisters are exciting!
The colour-swapped 3-pack not so much.
04/30/16, 17:32

I like the three-pack because in the game there is so much variety in the Splatoon characters. I'd love having a larger fleet in this case.

I've heard someone say, "Would Nintendo do this with Smash color variants?" and with the exception of one specific Pac-Man version, I wouldn't bother with any of those.
04/30/16, 21:58
When are we going to get Cloud and Bayonetta figurines?
04/30/16, 23:35

No announcements yet, which I find surprising. Last month we had the last Smash ones release and usually the announcements overlap. Six weeks since a Smash amiibo with no news of others is peculiar.
05/01/16, 00:12
The squid sisters will be mine...

As for Bayo and Cloud, I imagine they're just taking their time to find the most inconvenient retailer exclusive possible...
05/01/16, 15:17
@ploot Yeah, the Squid Sisters should make nice display figures for fans. The in-game functionality remains incredibly stupid of course, but that may be for the best. I recall hearing these rumoured or leaked or whatever a while back, so I was wondering when they'd show up.

I agree the colour swap thing is kinda lame at this point. The time for an alternate choice would have been at the same time as the other pack. I hope that Splat2n has unique characters in it (and maybe even playable Callie and Marie!).
05/01/16, 20:56
Oh wow, new Splatoon stuff. Hmm..
05/02/16, 01:28
@Mop it up

The functionality might be less than ideal, but at least it makes sense I suppose. If their whole thing was that they were pop-stars of some sort, it works that they would unlock videos. It might be kind of weird to have them playable because depending on how much extra stuff you're wearing it might not even be visible.
05/02/16, 05:24
Squid sisters!

...no Andy from Advance Wars yet huh.
05/02/16, 05:30

I'd just settle for another Wars game in general. Also Sami or bust.
