    Between insane and insecure
    I might as well just set up a direct deposit from my paycheck to Nintendo, but these things have been raiding my wallet.

    I wonder what the amiibo would be used for, outside of "amiibo festival". I'd probably get them just for the statue though,

    why would anyone older than 10 want something like this ?
    I can understand Maria and whatever but those weird looking animal crossing things ?

    Sorry but I still don't get that Amiibo hype at all ... have none of them and won't buy one of them ...
    and as well I do not know anyone at all who owns an amiibo.

    Pretty sure they're aiming at just the right market. Kids and scalpers lap these things up.

    I FOUND THE SPECULATOR! BURN HIM AT THE STAKE!

    These Amiibos are pretty cute though. I can see the attraction.

    Because it's nice to have figurines that actually do something?

    I like showing my nerd through nice looking merchandise. Amiibos are high-quality figurines that actually interact with the game. They're perfect for someone like me.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    I'm sorry WHAT?
    Mcdonalds has better quality toys than the amiibos. What a joke

    Amiibos are atrocious. The quality is abysmal. To merely call them figurines is almost an insult to figurines.
    I was going to buy a few, like Lucina but when I actually looked at it up close I couldn't figure out what the hell was wrong with her face. They're all just hideous up close. Even from a moderate distance you can tell they're trash quality.

    They're better than what usually passes for figurines in the toy isle. They're also less than 15 bucks and of characters you would normally have to import to have something of. And you certainly wouldn't be getting that for under 15 bucks. You should check out some of the figurines like robin, that have some pretty amazing small detail.
