    A new amiibo line is born!

    This wave introduced a new line of amiibos .. the Splatoon series. This series is a great addition to Nintendo's lineup and certainly adds to the release of Splatoon. The figure itself is very high quality. You will notice nice little touches to this figure along with the Inkling Girl and the Squid. The major one which adds to the appeal is the ink that is splattered on the base. You will also see that the ink container on the boy's back is filled with ink.. not just a sticker or paint on the outside. A good little touch. I have yet to remove my figure from its packaging, but I have read that using this amiibo in Splatoon adds a considerable amount to the game, such as additional missions and weapons. One negative to this item for collectors: packaging size. You will notice right off the bat that the plastic for this amiibo is not as large as the Smash and Super Mario amiibos. Depending on how you display your new-in-box amiibos, it may look strange. The way I have mine shelved though, you can't even tell.

    Nice figure, questionable functionality

    I like the figure and the idea behind it but it feels like DLC in that you get missions and costumes that you can't get through normal gameplay. But it will also help with earning more money to spend on multiplayer gear when you can't connect to the internet for whatever reason. The amiibo functionally can expand to other games like Hyrule Warriors and Captain Toad for random equipment and 1-UPs, but otherwise it's functionally feels questionable. Especially considering how hard it is to get any amiibo that isn't Mario. When amiibo stock shortages are gone, this will be a great buy.

    Promising entry in a new line of amiibo.

    The base is interesting compared to the smash base and does look a little inky. I also think the tank on the back was done well for depicting a tank for of ink. However; there is a really noticeable line on top of his head for connecting two parts when manufactured so it's a little unfortunate that his head isn't completely smooth looking.

    Got a good price on this blue inkling! No imperfections on the statue itself, and my in-store experience was pleasant... though I was actually looking for the Majora's Mask Link, a Best Buy-exclusive amiibo my store hasn't gotten any more of since it launched weeks ago. As in, 0 restocks total. Maybe one day...

    I don't even have the game but i love to collect these! One day I was just roaming around Bestbuy and looked through the amiibo, nothing interesting. I went on my way and decided, eh maybe i will look again and just pick one i dont have yet, thank goodness i did, I looked right past this guy and grabbed it and ran to the checkout

    Great Quality of Figure

    After having bought this and taking it out of the packaging I was quite surprised to see the fine details on the figure such as the ink container on the squid kid's back. I also like the look of the samurai armor this amiibo figure unlocks. (Heads up: It only unlocks the ability to earn it through some special one player challenges)

    Unique Amiibo

    Nintendo makes very little collectibles of other intellectual property besides characters from the Super Mario Brothers and Legend of Zelda series, so this is a must have in any Nintendo Collection. This Amiibo unlocks Special 8 bit Costume for Mario in Mario Maker for the Wii U and a samurai costume/mission in Splatoon.
