    With the rampant success of Nintendo's amiibo toys, it appears that Sony is trying to slightly capitalize on the trend. Revealed via a GAME Espana video, it showcases six figurines from major Sony IPs, such as Crash Bandicoot, Bloodborne's Hunter, Sackboy from LittleBigPlanet, Wipeout, Parappa the Rapper, and Heihachi Mishima from Tekken 7. These figures will release on March 23, 2018 exclusively at GAME/Gamestop, will be manufactured by their subsidiary "ThinkGeek" and toymaker "Totaku", and will retail for $9.99 each. Unlike amiibo, however, these will not serve any function ingame, and are merely for collection purposes. A Kratos figure will also release later this year.

    Merely for collection? Seems like a wasted opportunity.

    I mean it could be seen as a wasted opportunity but when did an amiibo give you anything worthy? And how often are people actually using them?
    I bet costs are super cheap without the nfc chips and assembly time too.

    The Hunter for me!

    I... don't think this idea really works for them. It's not something you can use in-game, and these all look so gritty. Nothing like the colorful Amiibos.

    So far they look better than the 10 cent melted plastic garbage amiibos are. Half of them don't even look anything like the characters they represent except for the -very- simple undetailed characters like kirby.

    edit: the packaging for these looks horrendous though

    I imagine they’re worthy enough to make people pirate them.

    Hah, like hell are the figures going to look that high quality, even the Amiibos looked better at E3. Then we got cheap Chinese knock off looking ones.

    Oh joy. More garbage to clutter Gamestop's Buy3 Get 3 free pile. They don't even segregate the Skylanders, Amiibos, and Disney Infinity figures anymore. They're all dumped into the same bin display.

    Sony is also super late to the fad.

    **Looks at Crash figure.**
    **Crash is owned by Activision.**
    **Thinks statement makes no sense.**

    Wanna try again?
