Very impressive of Nintendo to be releasing actual quality Amiibos which look great unlike some from the Smash collection wave one.

I was pondering on pre-ordering this new collection's Bowser but then I compared the two and realised Smash's got the superior Bowser.

It's a sloppy job by its employees so in a way they are defective, the way that the previous Amiibos were there's no other way to put it. :P

all the amiibo are injection molded and assembled by machines there's no way it could stuff up. an employee is grabbing them off the assembly line and tempering with them on purpose. :creep:

You really have no idea how production lines work if that's what you believe. Trust me, there's a lot of manual labor going on. It'll take another 10 years before production lines can be fully run by machines, which will guarantee perfect a product within +/-0,01% tolerances. I worked at Nokia's manufacturing in Finland and we connected all the PCBs and housing parts ourselves with the monobody housing of the N9 being injection moulded from composite polycarbonate. The employees then finished off the housing and polished the corners. It's a delicate process and a lot of employees could get small parts wrong along the line. It's perhaps why Made in Finland N9 units generally had more problems than Made in China N9 units. Nokia's facility in China was extremely strict with its employees and they were overworked, so while they made very good products, there were many who burned out. It's really no different here. I believe some employees already have been fired off the amiibo production lines at Nintendo's facility. Chinese people take great pride in producing high quality products and they take stereotyping very seriously—saying something is "Made in China" is synonymous with bad quality really upsets them. Conference calls with the Nokia team in China were always interesting.

I was thinking about a 3D Printer printing all of the Amiibos for me but I assume it's not that easy as in it requires an exact file of the character and the printer itself isn't exactly cheap.

I've also checked out today GAME's store to see if they miraculously had a Villager and nope, but all of the Amiibos were properly put together in their boxes. I really want to get a Samus as that figure looks so fantastic and as for Link.. never.

3D printing is not there yet. It has long ways to go before being viable for mass production and more importantly, for cost effective production of detailed parts. I'm not sure how exactly Nintendo is producing amiibo, but it seems the parts themselves are injection moulded and then assembled by hand with silicone. It explains why the amiibo are strong, but also why parts can be ripped off quite easily if you want to. And why there are defects because overworked underpaid Chinese slaves workers at Nintendo's facility can't be bothered whether Samus has one or two guns.
