Now that the series one Amiibo figures have been revealed and are ready for pre-order from various outlets, let’s have a look at what the community thinks of each figure. The twelve starter figures are mostly a mix of relatively popular characters that should lead the charge of a new initiative, including Mario, Samus, and Fox, while newcomers to Super Smash Bros. are also included. Both the Villager and the Wii Fit Trainer have already sold out of pre-orders on Amazon, so it’s interesting to see how quickly these figures are going.
My personal favorite of the group is Donkey Kong. I love the way he’s posed to look as if he’s about to jump on top of someone. It’s a great action pose and I wish some of the other figures were a bit more actiony, too. Yoshi just seems to be flexing, but at least the Wii Fit Trainer seems to be doing some sort of yoga move.
