    Marth’s Rubber Sword

    The figure is a great rendition of the Hero King Marth and is a great addition to the set. The design is spot on and there is a great amount of detail. That being said there is one small problem especially for the OCD-minded. The flimsy sword. As you might expect, a thin piece of malleable plastic will bend. This happens with the sword as it seems to not be able to support it’s own wait. I tried to bend it in to place but it just bends back. Without sitting down and bending it back with heat or supports it will stay in the limp state. Which shouldn’t be necessary as it should be fixed up right. Just a small problem and I’m still very awed by the figure. This is just really hard not to notice on the figure.

    Ok I never once seen a marth in the wild. I really wanted one (since he's my favorite character) a while ago I heard there are marth's at best buy so I went to my nearest best buy (in a different city) only to see there weren't any. I had really bad luck when it came to finding marth's favorite hiding spot so I thought of ordering him online from best buy just to save me the hassle of a never ending game of hide and go seek. He came a little late then what they told me but it didn't really matter much at the end because he's worth the wait. When I opened the package everything was exactly what I exepected. I would definitely recommend and buy from again

    Way back in 2014, when this toys-to-life line of figurines was released for Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U and 3DS, I passed on this figure because I was unfamiliar with him as well as the game franchise he represented. SO, I did not buy it when I had the chance. STUPID ME...since this figure became a highly sought-after collectible on the aftermarket! I am not one who is willing to pay scalper markups on eBay for things like this...so I went without! Now, with the release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch...Nintendo has seen fit to re-release several of the original figures, this one amongst them!

    good figure, not as accurate as other amiibo

    As with other Amiibo, the quality is hit or miss. I looked through all the available Marth figures on the shelf and some had bent swords, some had paint run-off, others had even more of a derpy expression, so be sure to examine your figure before you buy it. That being said, Marth used to be a unicorn figure available only to those willing to pay a king's ransom. Thankfully not so any more. If you like Marth or main him on Smash, get the figure. If you're a potential scalper seeking to crush the hopes and dreams of legitimate collectors, unfortunately, the window of opportunity for exaggerated profits are gone as Nintendo has finally ramped up reproduction of their previously ultra-rare figures.

    Prince Marth of Fire Emblem. Once considered part of the Holy Trinity (Marth, Villager, and Wii Fit Trainer) As the rarest figures from the past. Now they are all over the place at Best buy's still stocked to this day. The amiibo rarity game has burst and you can buy them everywhere. Nab one up since Fire Emblem has never received merchandise so easily ever and nor cheap either! Finally with the release of awakening it has gotten the recognition it deserves and it's fan base is growing. It's amazing how this figure used to cost you $100 at one point. Now it's back to retail. So happy all that's over.

    Best amiibo? Possibly

    Marth is probably one of my favorite amiibo figures. He has a lot of detail from his clothes and armor, to his boots and flowing cape. You can't see it in pictures, but he has the fire emblem crest on the back of his cape that adds to all his detail. Some have said their Marth figures have a weird looking face, but I don't think mine does, I think he looks fine. Some have shipped with bent swords, but that can maybe be fixed with some bending (my figure's wasn't bent). He is rare, but he's really cool.

    As a collector who *gasp* opens and uses products normal collectors would put on a shelf untouched, I am very pleased with Amiibo figures. Not only can I visually show my gaming tastes, the added functionality it adds to some games doesn’t make it a must have but if you’re die hard on a particular title (especially Smash) you may consider picking up a corresponding product to enhance your experience.

    Better Quality Than the First Print

    Marth used be one of the most hard the find amiibo. With the new print run they've become pretty common, so don't buy if you expect this model to become rare again or retain a high re-sell value. Thankfully, they seem to have made some model improvements from the first print, with less "derpy" looking faces. However, there's only so much that can be done with the old molds, so while the figure does look good, it does not have the same level of detail as later wave amiibos such as Robin or Falco.

    A bit surprised to find the Marth amiibo here. I missed them the first time around and none of the other stores seemed to carry them. So far Best Buy seems to where I've found most of my Fire Emblem amiibos, when the other stores didn't have them. Though right now it looks like they just have Roy and Marth. Before that I got Lucina, Alm, Celica and others here.

    Best place to get amiibo!

    After Nintendo announced they would be restocking amiibo I got excited. Simple fact it seemed like these rare amiibo would never get restocked, When the restock was announced by Nintendo it didn't take much digging to get restock dates. Also some retails which I can not name have had some damaged boxes in the past which only matters if you are keeping the amiibo in boxes. I take my amiibo out of the box but if you like to keep them in box you should get them from BestBuy.

    Amiibo with Good Value

    This particular amiibo has a few useful additions for certain games like Fire Emblem series (later games of course) and also for the Supet Smash Bros games. In the Super Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS and Nintendo Switch, you can train him and the other amiibos to fight either in your steed, against it battle a CPU or each other, or as an team which adds a lot of reply value.

    I currently have all of the amiibo and they are great! They have great functionality with Super Smash Bros, and other games, and they are excellent quality. Really well constructed and great paint job. They look great sitting out even when they're not being used. I can't believe I was lucky enough to see this Marth amiibo just sitting on the shelf at Best Buy. This was before everyone knew how rare they were.

    Crafted perfectly, collector's pride

    Amiibos are a collector's pride, each has been designed in perfect detail of their character, the color accuracy and their designs go beyond what is expected of a mass produced affordable figure. Each of these compatible with a wide variety of games across Nintendo consoles to bring extra items/customizations to the games.

    Marth may not be as detailed as some other characters, but what detail is there contributes to the simple and clean styling of the character. Like the fine gold lines on his boot cuffs and armor, and the folds of his tunic, and the flow to his cape. All that and heroic pose makes Marth a stoic addition to your collection. I don't use him in Smash, so I can't comment on his gameplay. But, he works in Super Mario Maker, of course.

    The Nintendo Toy-to-Life Experience - Marth

    With the recent introduction of the Amiibo product line, Nintendo has once again revitalized an ailing industry. With multiple games supporting the characters, consumers are given multiple choices with what to do with the small pieces of plastic. Some characters are under-represented, only appearing in one game, but others are featured heavily throughout the Wii U and 3DS library.

    Get this figure if you have Smash or are a fan of Fire Emblem! This is a reprint so the box does look different than the old ones for you in box collectors! The face looks good and would highly suggest getting it if you have the slightest desire to before it sells out again and you're at the mercy of scalpers!

    Nice, but not crazy about the sculpt

    Marth is a nice character to have as this particular amiibo works in a number of games, namely Super Smash Brothers and Fire Emblem: Fates, but I'm not terribly impressed with the sculpt of the figure. Not a big deal for kids, I'm sure, but I would have liked a bit more quality in the Fire Emblem amiibos specifically. None of them are quite up to the more cartoony amiibo's level of quality.

    This amiibo is awesome for several reasons. First off, it's just a great looking amiibo. As with all of the Fire Emblem characters, it is perfectly detailed and looks great on the shelf. Also, it has some cool functionality, especially with Code Name STEAM (as well as Mario Maker, Smash, and eventually Fire Emblem: Fates I assume). But lastly, Marth is just awesome. The king of Fire Emblem.

    Originally part of the first wave of Amiibos, Marth initally became a 'Unicorn' - a very rare figure that was nearly impossible to find. After about a year they finally reprinted it so most collectors can finally add it to their collection. The figure itself is very detailed, he has a very masculine and cool pose that will surely attract the attention of any Smash Bros. fans.

    I bought this to add to my collection. It arrived quickly in a large bubblewrap package but when I opened the package, the amiibo's box was crushed. I had intended to keep it in the box as a collectable but, as the box was crushed, it went to my sister's Smash bros collection since she actually uses them. Neat amiibo and will probably try to get another one later thanks!
