    I accidentally pressed ENTER before even adding all Amiibo figures so no "no" option was added either.

    I'll be buying all of them if they make a complete bundle.

    Buying as a whole bundle is intended for collectors and parents who like to spoil their children, so no, I'll be fine.

    I'll have them on a shelf and all of 'em will be in its box, which means, I won't be opening any due for the sole purpose of collecting them as figures.

    You mean that sort of stickers system similar to the one in Brawl? D:
    And that makes no sense for the 3DS version imho.

    Have you played the new Smash? Google "smash character customizations" and you'll find out what it means. It can carry your customization data.
    There will be an extension to use NFC on the 3DS (kinda like Skylanders).

    I did, but I dislike it. I'd rather have a balanced rooster when I play with others...

    It's more for little kids who like to go over to other kid's houses, I kinda get the selling point. If the parents will buy skylanders, dammit they'll buy amiibos too.

    I voted no. But I really wanted to vote for "HELL NO!!!". I'm just not a collector of any kind of figurines.


    Also: wii fit trainer? :rofl: That's so hilariously stupid I'd even consider buying it if I could be arsed.
