Oh my god! WFC ravage is adorable! Who's a pudgy kitty? Yes you are!

And Devastator because I'm a sucker for combiners

@  unluckiness : (28 November 2020 - 04:32 AM)

Decided to stick with the main cast from 2007 and a few assorted ones here and there.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 November 2020 - 02:02 PM)

I said I wouldn't buy a lot, now I have seven. And at least three might be on the culling pile.

I'm surprised there's not been a Nemesis Primal given all the Nemesis Primes.

@  unluckiness : (23 November 2020 - 03:17 AM)

The real Drifts were the Windblades we made along the way

Drift-kun 2 Electric Boobylube

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 November 2020 - 11:36 PM)

I'm pretty sure Drift 2 was Empire of Stone.

@  Sabrblade : (22 November 2020 - 10:06 PM)

I thought people said Prime Wheeljack was Drift 2.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 November 2020 - 03:51 PM)

Windblade was Drift.2.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 02:44 PM)

Drift with boobs.

@  Rycochet : (22 November 2020 - 11:50 AM)

I can't imagine a live action movie version of Windblade being all that different from Drift. Not my thing, but not the worst thing I've ever seen.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 09:54 AM)

The thought of Movie aesthetic Windblade makes me feel sick.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:47 AM)

Though, the fact that Japanese people would pay for Windblade toys in the $30-40 range doesn't mean they'd pay however much MPs are going for now.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:44 AM)

Back when I made a habit of checking Mandarake for pre-owned TFs, Windblade's toys went for surprisingly high prices. By which I mean not lower than the original price.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 November 2020 - 08:15 AM)

If she's in the next movie you might get her.

@  unluckiness : (22 November 2020 - 07:58 AM)

Japan didn't get most of the IDW comics and are the target market for MP. They basically know windblade from a few crappy pack-in comics and a show that wasn't particularly popular there. Unless they start cranking out Cyberverse MPs, it's not very likely.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 04:24 AM)

Again, depends if she's popular enough in Japan to warrant it. Our view of which characters are popular is not the same as Takara's.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 01:53 AM)

So characters like Windblade then.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 07:19 PM)

They're complicated and expensive to design. By necessity, they're gonna be restricted to well-known characters who are more likely to sell.

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 07:05 PM)

I don’t think Masterpiece toys should be restricted to only show characters.

@  Rycochet : (21 November 2020 - 03:09 PM)

If she wasn't in the Sunbow cartoon, Live Action movie or Beast Wars and can't be repainted from someone else, she's not getting an MP.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 November 2020 - 12:44 PM)

They'll make their money back if they include the metal thong...

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 12:29 PM)

Is she popular enough in Japan that Takara would even try?

@  Paladin : (21 November 2020 - 11:23 AM)

depends. will that one also have a giant metal thong?

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 11:10 AM)

Should there be a Masterpiece Windblade?

@  -LittleAutob... : (20 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 November 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It's great how they reference G1 concepts like this one features the harmony from the episode Carnage in C Minor and and Slugslingers featured anti electrons from Grimlocks New Brain.

@  Steevy Maximus : (18 November 2020 - 10:01 PM)

Or at least those little story blurbs like Beast Hunters had. Especially for stuff like Selects which tend to exist in their own little side world

@  Maximus Ambus : (17 November 2020 - 04:03 PM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 11:56 PM)

I swear though.. The idea of "Catch up" is stupid.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:25 PM)

That's irritating, but it sounds par for the course with new hardware release. Within a year, there'll probably be some good stuff out there that does it all.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 11:23 PM)

4K/HDR switches are.. iffy.. Because most of them can't do 4K and HDR at the same time.. Or can't do 120hz... and all sorts of things the new TVs have built in, and the new consoles use...

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:18 PM)

Maybe now that the PS5's made the whole 4K thing a little more mainstream, the hardware will start becoming more common. I know that's one of the hopes the physical media community has for the 100GB discs the PS5 is going to be using. Prior to this, they were very expensive tor replicate compared to a regular blu-ray and not used very often

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:17 PM)

Up to now, there really haven't been a whole lot of 4K disc players to choose from... Samsung stopped making them altogether when they couldn't compete with the others, so your main choices are a few models of Panasonic or Sony

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:14 PM)

Is there no such thing as a 4K/HDR switch yet?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 10:10 PM)

Which is fine.. But that still doesn't explain why they arn't putting out up to date HDMI switch boxes to get.. more money.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:59 PM)

My only TV with a respectable number of ports is my OLED 4K/3D, which has 4 HDMI, 2 USB 2.0s, 1 USB 3.0 and some weird proprietary thing that acts as both component and composite, depending on what you need. But it retailed for $10k when it first came out (I bought it 14 months later for less than half that). THey're going to get as many corners on less expensive sets as they can, which usually means only providing 2 HDMIs.

I figured we could use an Amiibo centric thread since we'll soon be branching over more than a few games and they aren't tied to one particular system.

 

So who has got their favorites picked out so far?

 

I just got Shiek (got lucky and found her hiding away from the rest of the Amiibos at the local Walmart ) and even though she's only about lv.17 shes already giving me a run for my money. So far I've been trying to balance her out more than the rest of them Stat-wise. With most of mine I've been focusing on Attack and Speed power. But now that I have an overabundance of Defensive badges and such I figured I'd at least try to keep her balanced and man she seems to keep me on my toes. Of course giving her a Crouch-Healing badge may have helped her.

 

On another note how bad have we all gotten addicted so far? I've gotten 14 so far, with another two preordered.

Fortunately, I've managed to rein myself in from spending too much on these things (I'm already spending quite a bit much on Transformers and some other collectibles, anyway :p). The three I have so far are Samus ('Artemis', my first and highest-leveled), Luigi ('Hades') and Shulk ('Apollo'), with Sonic and Mega Man reserved at Gamestop.

 

Man, they really need to add an amiibo option on the online modes for people to be able to pit these against each other. Maybe even do something like have the player fighting alongside one or two of his amiibo against another player's team. :thumbsup

Oh, Amiibo, Amiibo, Amiibo.

 

I only have Kirby, Villager (who I lucked out on on release day before the insanity happened) and Toon Link.

 

I really want Captain Falcon but Scalpers took care of him. I also want Mega Man who, I don't know.

 

Nintendo should really look into upping production on the scalped Amiibos. When I first heard of them, I thought they would be replenished regularly like Disney Infinity does. But goddamn, have they dropped the ball.


But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

I still need Captain Falcon, Pitt and Little Mac from Wave 2 and Rosalina Shulk and King Dedede from wave 3. I hope Nintendo UK restock them again soon as I'm having far to may gaps in my collection and sooner or later I'll just give up collecting Amiibo entirely.

I'm hard to buy gifts for, so I made the mistake of putting Amiibos on my Amazon Wishlist so that family could buy them for me for Christmas. Unfortunately my family sucks, and now I'm freaking out trying to find Fox and Captain Falcon at a reasonable price - reasonable for me being less than double retail.


Yep.

Well Pac is slated for the Spring Wave. At Walmart is seems some must be shelfwarming pretty bad since I saw them Rollingback DK and Yoshi.

 

Might as well list all mine. I have Samus, Fox, Pikachu, Mario, Peach, Bowser, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Pit, Kirby, Link, Toon Link, Zelda, and Shiek. Mega Man and Sonic are preordered at Gamestop but now I'm wondering if I'll ever get them.

I've let all my worst collecting tendencies take over with these things. I have all of them except Rosalina and Meta Knight. I never saw an option to preorder either of them, and at least Rosalina was naturally sold out immediately. I'm assuming the same is true for Meta Knight.

 

I kinda regret getting lucky and finding Villager stuffed in a bin under a bunch of others at one of the local TRUs. I'd already had Marth from the release day, and WFTs were still fairly easy to find at the time. Finding him made being a completionist possible, and I'd seen too much to resist the urge at that point. Between these, Skylanders, and Combiner Wars, my wallet's crushed this year.

I just grabbed a Link and a Mario because I only have the 3DS Smash Bros so far.  I'd like a Megaman but not so much I need to care too hard about it.

 

I got a Captain Falcon for a friend a couple of weeks ago.  TRU employee came over and asked if I'd like a rare one.  I didn't know these things were such a big deal at the time, didn't care about them, got it anyway, then gave it away.  You can all feel free to hate me for that now.  :D

I'll list the ones I don't have. That'll be shorter.

 

Marth, Villager*, Rosalina, Meta Knight, Lucardio, Dedede and Sonic, Mega Man and Ike are Pre-order and I'm just waiting for them to arrive. Toad is paid and will be shipped to me in March. Hoping they'll make a Daisy for Mario Party 10.

 

*More upset about him than anyone else. He was one of my "GETS" but I passed on him a few times because if I got him I couldn't get Marth or WFT if I saw them.

I bought Marth and Wii Fit Trainer on day one, without any pre-orders. I just thought they were cool.

What has happened since then has been incredibly discouraging. I don't want to bother with hunting for the characters I like. I might just import a few figures to avoid supporting the local scalping market.

I want MegaMan badly. However due to all the nonsense with these things I'm not sure if I'll get him.

 

I wanted Marth as well but well...

 

It's really annoying. Not only are they hard as hell to find, but they are 13 bucks a pop. I didn't get into Skylanders or Disney Infinity, so I don't know the general prices for these, but I believe they shouldn't be more then 6.99 if that.

 

Right now I have none of them, but I'm aiming to get at least Link with a gamestop cupon I have so I can use said Link to unlock a weapon in Hyrule Warriors.

Considering they are marketing this worldwide, they could have come up with an easier to pronounce and less silly name than "Amiiboo". It sounds like, well... Hibbety-hoo or Hullaballoo.

"Musty prawns, and Timbucktu! Yeltsy-by, and hibbety-hoo! Kick 'em in the dishpan! Hoo hoo hoo!!  :D (hope you get the reference)

Much like with Skylanders I'd only be interested in this for the figures, since I don't own consoles. Will most likely get Starfox if they discount the figures, for the simple reason that well, this is the first ever Starfox figure, unless you count the bobble-head.
