    You may have read about the TEMPIIBO announcement today (and you may have seen the image). Luckily, that was simply a mockup when they were in the planning stage.
    I got my mail yesterday and found my review TEMPIIBO on the door step! (I was told to wait for the official announcement before I posted here about it.)
    This is the first batch that have been sent to reviewers, and I'll be writing a review of it tomorrow!
    I even took a photo of it in my personal "eBay Photo Lab" (it's an inside joke). It's made from a used Gold Mario Amiibo.
    Look for the review tomorrow!
    Thanks to the GBATemp.net staff for sending one to me!

    First impressions:
    Head is a bit different color than the rest of the amiibo.
    It'll sell for $30, so it won't break the bank.
    Thankfully, after the normal Mario amiibo releases, the tempiibo will be well stocked.

    I'm going to be putting it on eBay after the review. I'll make sure to post up the link here!

    This is no laughing matter.
    Besides, the Tempiibo is based on Tempy v2. and has more room in the base for dual NFC tags.

    :ph34r: You caught me. But just so you know, I just doubled the size of the base in the photo! ;)

    I will admit you made it look better than I did.
    But we'll be getting the proper mockup soon.
    Then all the doubting Thomases can eat their hats.

    I'm looking forward to seeing it!
    Also, if you ever need me to photoshop anything for you guys, feel free to ask.

    We considered asking one of the members to make the mockup but didn't want to risk word of the plan getting leaked.
    The offer is certainly appreciated!
