Here’s how you make outstanding action figures: Take a pair of already beloved Amiibo statues, give them a ridiculous amount of articulation and load them up with accessories. That’s what Good Smile Company did to create the upcoming Squid Girl and Squid Girl DX Figma figures.
The triumphant return of the ‘Shop Contest brought many entries, but the capricious soul of victory chooses the best of the best!
Solaire is an amiibo now, so it’s open season for beautiful crossovers and tie-ins for maximal corporate brand-sharing initiatives.
No really, praise the sun. It’s what the Solaire of Astora amiibo does.
3D printed wolf Amiibo are pretty adorable. BurninCoco made them using a filament with a high percentage of wood (yes you can 3D print things with what amounts to saw dust) and although they don’t actually serve any purpose, they’re still pretty cool looking. You can see a few more pictures of them over on Imgur.
The PlayStation-licensed line of Amiibo-looking toys comes by way of ThinkGeek, the merchandise outfit owned by GameStop, and are due to launch on March 23.

I’m kind of blown away by how much the Peach Amiibo breaks Super Mario Odyssey.
Look, not everyone sets out to have a massive Amiibo collection. A lot of people start out like I just did: with one.
With Legend of Zelda Amiibo figures perpetually sold out and fetching prohibitively high prices on eBay, many fans are turning to bootlegged “Amiibo cards” instead. Many sellers of these cards see themselves not as mere pirates, but as modern-day Robin Hoods, providing fans with the in-game content that Nintendo won’t…
Amiibo may look like Smash Bros. trophies, but they don’t act like them—not normally, anyway. One fan has spent two years trying to make that fantasy into more of a reality, and the results are awesome.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is amazing in its own right. Its world is breathtakingly gorgeous and bursting at the seams with surprises. So why am I and other players wasting so much time resetting the Nintendo Switch’s clock so we can keep spawning new treasure chests with our Amiibos?
Shovel Knight will be released on the Nintendo Switch. The popular platformer is also getting a slew of additional modes as well as new name and price.
BoxBoy, the hero Nintendo’s 2016 needed and star of our “best games of the year” list, will return on the 3DS in February (at least in Japan) with a third game in the series, called Goodbye! BoxBoy! And, more importantly, with BoxBoy Amiibo.
