    On August 12 McDonalds' around UK will have Nintendo toys available with (and also sold separately for £1 -- I think that's what they still cost) as listed per Nintendo Life; Yoshi, Mario (4 different types), Peach, Luigi and a Mario Hat.

    If you were hoping these to be identical to the ones announced (for 2016) previously which they'd have identical NFC capabilities of an amiibo, nope. Just plastic toys without physical DLC.

    Well people do go out of their way to buy them but they are never really worth anything, the quality control looks terrible on these also but im probably expecting too much from happy meal toys

    The previous Nintendo Happy Meal toys looked pretty good, well, as good as the actual amiibos.

    Looks like they're trying to appeal to their audience.

    I haven't visited McDonalds in months but I assume when they're available it'll be like this "Hi, I'd like a Happy Meal for my little brother/sister". :ph34r: It's as embarrassing as the guy in this video lurking over MLP toys in McD.

    You don't have to buy the whole Happy Meal to get the toy, you can just buy the toy on its own:

    You don't have to but it's awkward for those guys that want the toys without being embarrassed about it.
