What's your take on it? I'm not really into it, but I can see myself installing some shelves and then buying whole sets used - though I don't think I'll ever find them for cheap.

I have one amiibo; I don't think I'll ever collect them, but I can see myself buying a couple more when I feel like it.

On second thought, I have a bunch of Animal Crossing amiibo cards, but I collected them just because they are cards (and much cheaper).

I'm thinking maybe I'll just print out some cards or get someone to do it then put together a card album. That would be a lot more compact too, and much more reliable than an Amiiqo. There's someone on Kijiji locally willing to do so, but most of the cards would be unprinted and it looks like he charges $100 for 20

I have 3. Would've loved to get more, but they released too many, too quickly... so I got burned out directly. Also, with the limited stock, I got burned out again.

The one I'd like to get now, is the squishy Metroid one, since the Fusion difficulty mode is locked behind that Amiibo... then I realised I only have an O3DS, so I can't even scan the Amiibo... *annoyed*

have 2 of them, the 8bit mario (classic colors) and 8bit link
they are just for display and got them for pretty cheap
If they put out more 8bit ones then I would probably think about getting those also

Amiibos are destined for the bargain bin right next to Skylanders and Disney Infinity. They have released far too many. They just collect dust at the stores since people just don't buy them now. They're good if there's one that you would really like to display on your desk or something.

I only buy the ones I really like, which are actually quite a few, haha. I'm only really a completionist with Zelda series ones, but I have never seen the newer Twilight Princess or Skyward Sword ones in stores (was able to get their BotW items thanks to an amiibo save backup device).

Unfortunately not, otherwise prices would be going down. The only ones I see in stores around here are super common ones that nobody wants. Even the amiibos I got at under $10 are like $15+ now.

It depends on the store obviously. I had to get all my Amiibo online, the only ones I've seen in stores around me are Waluigi, standard Mario, and Peach.

Haven't even bothered looking recently...it is Christmas time after all. I think the bottom will eventually fall out on Amiibo, but they haven't made too many quite yet.

i have one . . . back when they came out i got a pikachu gave it a nickname (aniibochu). . . soon after i deemed amiibos to be useless (not used enough in games to justify buying the one let alone getting more amiibo). . . amiibochu lives in my top dresser drawer now

I also have them all except for the Amazon exclusive Link character that sells out within minutes each time it has restocked. I am always a few minutes late for that one.
I have a complete Disney Infinity collection as well. I have gotten most of the figures on big discounts overtime with a few exceptions of the ones I want right away.
