Wow, these look a lot more detailed than I expected! Nintendo’s first line of interactive figures will feature 12 characters, each selling for $12.99 this holiday season. Wii U games like Smash Bros., Mario Kart 8, Captain Toad, Mario Party 10, and Yoshi’s Wooly World will support the figures, as will other upcoming titles — the 3DS will eventually connect with them too using an NFC accessory or the new 3DS’s built-in support.
You can preorder all of the figures right now on Amazon. We’ve also got more photos after the break. I like how the colored lines in the Amiibo logo are the same as the ones on the *new* 3DS logo.
Angry Kirby gets a figure ⊟
After years of making super expensive Metroid and Zelda pieces, First 4 Figures is now turning its attention to Kirby — the company plans to release a whole line of super expensive figures based on the pink guy.
The first one is a 16-inch “Sword Kirby”, which will feature a limited edition (850 made) version with a light-up power effect for $240. The standard edition (2,000 made) is a bit less fancy without the LED on the sword’s power effect, but that one will only set you back $220. Both are available to preorder now and will release in the first quarter of 2015.
More shots of the Trainer Red nendoroid ⊟
I’m not really into owning video game figures, and I’m not even that serious about ‘mons, but I’m seriously considering picking up this nendoroid when Good Smile releases it to Japan this September (priced at ¥4,500/$44).
Real talk, I’d be more excited if this showed up on my doorstep than I would be if someone sent me Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire.
Nendoroid Link: The Wind Waker figure ⊟
It’s even more adorable than I expected! Releasing in Japan this August (priced at ¥3,704, or $36.47), this figure from Good Smile includes the sword, shield, heart container, several facial expressions, and more.
Thanks to Thomas P. for the tip!
I wonder what Tharja has been reading… ⊟
Oh, those are some interesting books. Sorc Booty makes more sense if you’ve seen some of the other angles for Max Factory’s Tharja figure. Figure no Oni has plenty of photos taken from those angles, though I picked this relatively innocent one from their gallery for this post.
Mega Drive Megatron ⊟
He’s Megatron, and he’s a Mega Drive.
Mega Drive Megatron.
Thanks to @feitclub (and other awed toy/game fans) for pointing this out! We don’t have release details yet, so now we all have to go on with our lives knowing that this exists and we can’t have it. Do you feel that new Mega Drive Megatron-shaped void opening up in your heart?
[Update: Game Watch mentions that the figure will release in Japan this summer. Thanks for the link, Eduardo!]

Senran Kagura 2 bonus figures, soundtracks ⊟
So cute, so safe for work! People who pick up the DX Pack will get this set of five figures depicting the shinobi of the Hebijo school, while this amazing cross-series four-CD set goes to early purchasers.
Senran Kagura 2 comes out August 7 in Japan.

Dragon’s Crown Amazon figurine ⊟
Dragon’s Crown’s powerful, dangerously underdressed Amazon (my character of choice!) is being made into a figure by Megahouse. It ships from J-List in July for $130. The images may be NSFW, but the figurine is definitely NSFW.
Pre-order your Nendoroid Luigi ⊟
He’s waiting for you at J-List (ships in June!). Look at his little legs.
This, our Year of Nendoroid Luigi ⊟
Exactly 2013 years ago, our savior Luigi was born. It’s only fitting then that Good Smile release these new photos of its planned Luigi figure today. When this releases in Japan, it will come with interchangeable faces, special backgrounds, and accessories (pipe, Bullet Bill, Goomba, dash clouds).
12% off almost everything at J-List (including this Isabelle figure!) ⊟
Two things: one, through Nov. 29, just about everything at J-List is 12% off. And two: the Nendoroid Isabelle is back in stock! It’s the best time yet to buy one of these cuties (especially since you, like, couldn’t for so long due to low stock).
If you’re buying Animal Crossing plush toys, you get an additional 10% off, and the 12% discount, when you buy two. Just saying.
Dannnnggggg. That’s a lot classier than the Tharja figure, for sure.
