Nintendo's Little Plastic Figures Look Fantastic

Nintendo's Amiibo figures are, like Skylanders and Disney Infinity, designed first and foremost for video games. But where they differ from Activision and Disney's efforts is that I would buy all of these just to sit on my desk, quality of the games be damned.

Especially since, at $13 each, they're comfortably in "I'm just looking on the internet wait why am I getting my wallet out" territory.

Now that they've got a price, release window and preorder links, we've got better images of the figures, and as you can see below, they are awesome.

All twelve figures in the first line - whose first compatible game will be Smash Bros. - are out around the holiday season.
