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.

FF3 is phenomenal. I might count as a Nintendo-only FF fan, but "fan" might be a stretch because I really haven't paid attention to the series post-IX (give or take a Theatrhythm). I'd probably put Dragon Quest above it as a whole.

So! I got a pretty great amiibo deal today at GameStop. They were doing a special where you could buy 2, get 3 free for used amiibo, or get TEN for $20. Initially I was thinking of the former, but as it turned out, it'd end up costing as much as the latter, and as luck would have it, they had plenty of amiibo I was interested in! I got...

-Inkling Boy
-Inkling Squid
-Toon Link
-Duck Hunt
-8-Bit Classic Colors Mario

(All are the Smash versions except Mario) I practically cleaned out their entire pre-owned amiibo section! I think the only ones left after I got done there were Celeste from Animal Crossing, Toad and another Fox. I hadn't planned on buying more amiibo but that price was too good to pass up. If you don't mind not having the amiibo boxes, check around.

Zelda BotW amiibo are live on Amazon (except Guardian).

Falling behind on Amiibo acquisitions

I still need to get all of the new Zelda ones. I think the Kirby ones stunk up the show. As always. Freakin' Kirby.
01/16/17, 13:16   
I don't love some of the BotW amiibos because they went back to having those ugly plastic supports to facilitate ugly poses that can't stand on their own. But, I freaking love the Zelda Amiibo. She's gorgeous. What an amazing character design. I'm sorry Tetra but this might be the best Zelda design ever, she's gonna look so good next to the OoT Link.

I agree. I love the new Zelda design.

Right now I have 95 of the amiibo currently out in the US. I still don't have all of the first line of Super Mario amiibo (and Daisy), but those should be easy to get. The hard ones are going to be the rest of the Smash Bros. amiibo, the ones I'm missing are Bowser Jr., Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Ike, King DeDeDe, Meta Knight, Rosalina and Luma, Sheik, and Yoshi. Other than that, it's just the Alt Colors of the Splatoon 3-Pack and the Skylanders ones (though I don't really care about those). So I'm pretty close to a complete collection.
01/17/17, 10:28   
I'm up to 99 of these crazy things. Holy crap, that's a lot!
01/23/17, 07:18   
I have a few more coming in the mail and a friend that bought me one from a store he went to for a rhythm game tournament. That makes me very close to having a complete set.

What I'm missing:

Smash Bros:
Bowser Jr.
Donkey Kong
King DeDeDe
Meta Knight
Rosalina & Luma

Super Mario:

And then the Poochy, BotW and Fire Emblem ones not out yet. Also missing the Skylanders ones that aren't the regularly-colored Donkey Kong, but I don't care about those as much.

If anyone has some doubles or something to sell, let me know!

I have a Meta Knight, but I think Graptakular needed it. Or Ludist. Its been a long time, and I'm horrible.

PS- Yoshi is upset with you.
01/23/17, 10:58   
Yeah, I might have to snag BotW Zelda myself. Are those Zelda amiibos releasing alongside BotW and the Switch?
01/23/17, 16:01   

I have a Meta Knight. Both of them.


Yes. I have one of the Links and Zelda pre-ordered.

Just updated my tally, and the few I don't have of those already released are...

- Roy
- Yoshi (Super Mario series)
- Callie
- Marie
- Giant Yarn Yoshi
- Gold Mega Man
- Summer outfit Isabel
- All 6 of the Japan-only Monster Hunter series

If my math is right, I have 111 of 124 out now. I don't like my odds to find any of these on store shelves, but after a cursory search, it doesn't seem I'd have to really break the bank to get any of them online. A bit of a premium, sure, but nothing too outrageous.

I'm debating on whether to try and get a 'new' Link.

As previously noted, my original Link appears to have embarked on a perilous quest from which I fear he may never return. I've sent out a few search parties, but alas, no news.

I may grab a new one and keep him in his box prior to one final search. If the original turns up I guess I have one of those mint in box figures, lol.

In the meantime, I think I want to grab a few more of the Zelda line for collection purposes. I have Wolf Link via my TP HD box, and I have Archer Link on preorder. So I'm thinking of grabbing Ocarina Link and maybe Smash Ganondorf and Smash Zelda too.

...Aww hell. It begins.

Are the Mario Series DK and Diddy easy to find in the U.S.?
They never restocked them in Canada since their release, and they were very hard to come by from the get-go.
02/20/17, 18:12   

Now that you mention it, I don't know that I've ever seen Diddy in stores. I have seen DK often in my travels (mostly looking for a second NES Classic controller).

I got a Lucas Amiibo for like $5 last week.

He's definitely one of the nicer looking Amiibo I own. I'll give him that much.
02/20/17, 20:42   

Awesome! Where'd you find it for so cheap?
02/20/17, 20:47   

Both him and Ness are really good looking. Though for my money, in the Smash line, Mega Man is still my favorite.

@Hero_Of_Hyrule Walmart.

@ludist210 both the Smash and Mario Party versions of Bowser are really nice as well.
