    Team Maxlander would like to introduce their new product at GBAtemp. Maxlander is a device that allows you to backup and download any character in compatible games that take advantage of the new NFC toys in the form of Amiibos, Skylanders and Disney Infinity which have been popular for many years.

    Maxlander offers the following features:-
    1. Supports all the characters, tools and magic items in Spyro's Adventure, GIANTS, Swap Force, TRAP TEAM and Skylanders Superchargers.
    2. Backup your figure to avoid any damage.
    3. Share special figures and tools with friends.
    4. Download and play unlimited characters.
    5. Discover the latest and most unique characters easily.
    6. Receive the special magic items.
    Maxlander is compatible with many NFC-equipped toy compatible games such as Skylanders; which is the most well known and first to the market which includes such games as Spyro's Adventure, GIANTS, Swap Force, TRAP TEAM and will have its generation V – Superchargers arriving on September 20th which will give players the opportunity to drive many new and exciting vehicles in the game.

    Team Maxlander have just released a video that shows their device in action backing up examples such as the E3 edition Hot Streak vehicle without a problem. You can watch the video below:


    The Maxlander team have also announced that they have removed the 99 character limit with their latest update so it now allows users to backup and unlimited number of figures to their Maxlander device.

    This is great and all but between this and Amiiqo, I'm waiting for better counterfeit figures. Something like cheaper figures glued on plastic bases with nfc cards inside.

    It was only a matter of time before this happened.

    Also the website looks a lot like Gateway's except with a blue dragon.

    I would get this over the amiiqo if this also did amiibos. Is there a limit on how many it can store, or is it one at a time and swap with a pc when you need another?

    I know right, the amiiqo was confusing, so if I had 200 amiibos I had to press one by one to switch then? Made little sense.

    That is actually how you get the amiibos on the amiiqo, with an NFC Cellphone App for android. Surely someone will come up with that some day :) Just a single app to do the work. Not now because they are trying to make money off of these, but one day.

    Can this do amiibos or no? It says it takes advantage of NFC chips in "many toys" which amiibo has

    In the shadows behind you
    Android phones have NFC so where is the app that lets you read and copy Skylander characters?
    I have an app that can read some of the info but it wont let me set the NFC at that skylander character.
    Thats what I would like to see. No need for a hardware dongle when I have a phone that can do it without limits.
    I guess its time to bring out the Android SDK and make my own app as I've been waiting too long.

    I forgot
    At this time, no, it doesn't support Amiibos. It might be possible that a firmware update could offer Amiibo support, but the guys behind Maxlander haven't really confirmed whether that would actually be possible.

    This has already been investigated (multiple times, by multiple people actually). While Android phones can indeed read the NFC tags of Amiibos, they can't "emulate" them (or, at least, you need a specific chipset to do so but that's only based on one reddit thread from months ago that was abandoned due to legal reasons).

    No deivice are amiibo generators, the amiibo data is just downloaded off of the internet and put inside the device above, but it would seem that these do not support amiibos, only skylander data at this time.
