First Skylanders, then Disney, and now this. it's a decent idea, but it was used two times already.

On topic, I wonder what the games will do with amiibo. (Except Super Smash Bros. for Wii U because we all already know what it does.)
Ancient trash.

Where did you get the price estimate?

There has already been Nintendo released NFC figurines. Pokemon Rumble U used it.

Reggie said prices will be similar to what Skylanders and Disney figurines cost, that's where he said they will cost about $10~$15. However, this is coming off from Reggie, so I know the prices are subject to change once we get clear information in the future.

I am so excited! I'm already making a tier list for which ones I want/my parents will let me buy from the Super Smash Bros. line! It'll go something like this (Order may not be exact, as this is a rough draft created without knowledge of circumstances and not having the game and knowing all of the characters yet); criteria is based on a combination of how much I'll use them and how much I like them in general:

I also love the functionality across multiple games, even seemingly unlikely ones! Just imagining what they will do and what they're going to look like is going to be fun! Plus, I'll finally have some missing Nintendo icons in my room! Yay!

It's weird how much I love the name Amiibo. I think it's weird they chose to use the Super Smash Bros character images as the figurine poses. Because they work for numerous games, I was excepting just a generic stance.

It'd be cool if they could integrate character costumes for the Amiibo you placed in Bayonetta 2 and the Amiibo you placed in became playable in Hyrule Warriors.

I'm sure there will be multiple figurines of the same characters.

No, it won't be help only for offline modes. You can also use them online to take on your opponents...just not with anyone, though.

$10~$15.
...

Gotta wait and see what they actually do in all these games. I'll probably buy the Link figurine and end there.

So will the Nintendo-skylanders type game that allows you to bring all Amiibos into it be their 2015 holiday game? I can see that being huge.

I never thought they bring the Melee idea of the Trophy Summoning into real life. That alone is sweet syrup! Even if it is a repeat of things from before, this is kinda the real deal for me...
I'm so getting a Peach one once it comes out. Haven't had any need to own figurines before this (besides the Sanae one I almost got for a birthday).

What video game characters would you like to see as Amiibos?

@Tyler
Oooooh~ If that were true and the game were good I would be sold for getting a Wii U.

If I were to get these, I would probably want the Yoshi and Diddy Kong figurines first.

GameXplain also gave a discussion video on how the amiibo figurines will work.

I was not on board with the whole NFC craze but I would actually have fun just collecting them for fun.
