    A nice, affordable figure for Starfox fans

    For those not familiar with these, Amiibos are collectible figures that also contain an NFC chip to unlock bonuses in various Nintendo games. Some of these are minor, while others will unlock stuff like costumes, making them rather sought-after by collectors. In the case of Falco, his main function is unlocking a trainable AI-controlled character on Super Smash Bros. The figure itself is nicely detailed, with Falco placed in a dynamic action pose (basically the same as the Fox amiibo) and just in general looking ready for battle. If you're a fan of the character, you'll probably enjoy it, especially since there isn't much merchandise of him otherwise. I picked him up for rather cheap ($5 as of this writing), so he seems to be in the process of getting cleared out of stores and is possibly discontinued, so if you've been deciding whether or not to add him to your collection, I don't think you're going to get a better price.

    Beautifully crafted toy.. The attention to detail is amazing.. The packaging is done very nicely.. And it works great with smash brothers and hyrule warriors! This product is very simple to use with both games! Keep in mind that some games are "read" only while some are "Read/Write" Basically Hyrule Warriors is read only meaning this product just unlocks content.. (Costumes for Hyrule Warriors).. Super Smash Brothers is currently the only read and write meaning you can save data to this!! Also keep in mind that due to the limitation of these items it can only save 1 game per amiibo!! Basically if the new zelda game that comes out is read/write (No idea if it will be or not) you will have to purchase another to save to the amiibo!! BUT if it is only read like Hyrule Warriors, you can use this same amiibo.. They can be used with 1 read/write game and unlimited read games at the same time :)

    More amiibo for my collection

    Yet another figure that I originally passed on when it was first released (Dopey me!). After acquiring the new amiibo of Wolf O'Donnell and the pre-existing amiibo of Fox McCloud, I knew that I wanted to add Falco to my collection. I am happy to report that I have! On a side note, both he and Fox are in similar stances but facing opposite directions. They need another Star Fox character ( forget the rabbit's name) to place in between them, standing tall and brandishing a firearm...so that I can see them a la the old Charlie's Angels t.v.show characters' silhouette! I'm a dork, I know!

    Nintendo has made collecting many of their products difficult by creating retailer exclusives. This Amiibo is an example of how to handle exclusive products correctly. There are not Best Buy's withing two hours driving distance of my home, however I had no problem obtaining this Amiibo at retail price with free shipping! This is just one of several examples where Best Buy understood their consumers needs and went above and beyond to cater to customers who might not have local stores. I can say without a doubt that whenever I travel, or if I move to a location with a local Best Buy, I will always shop at this store and remember how they cared about all of their customers. I wish this could be said about other retailers. Best Buy will always come with the highest recommendation from me from now on!

    A nice figurine with cool Nintendo game benefits

    The figurine looks nice for the most part. They usually aren't full of detail and are not re-posable, but for cheap figures, they're okay. Be sure to look at them in the packaging before buying. The real draw of all amiibo figurines is the extra bonus content they unlock in Nintendo video games on Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, and Nintendo Switch. Falco works with many games, including Super Smash Bros for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, Super Mario Maker, Miitopia, etc. It also has an exclusive use for Star Fox Zero on Wii U, unlocking a hard mode difficulty. Check Nintendo's amiibo website for a more detailed list of compatible games.

    It's one of their better Amiibos of recent and not only is the art/paint on it very well done, but the excitement of collecting them all continues and my local Best Buy, as always, did an excellent job ensuring they had more than enough in stock to help us avoid running to eBay and paying scalper prices. I highly recommend having the gamers club membership as it saves a few dollars. Once you've purchased a few accessories and game bundles, the membership fee pays for itself and then more!!! Must have if you're trying to collect all these and any other collectibles.

    Falco amiibo is well done

    Very good build and design on Falco as it looks very basic while still have some fine details on it. I like how the his shirt and pants are separate pieces with the shirt overlapping the pants. The detail on his hands are a very standout piece of the figure as each individual fingers are well represented and doesn't seem like they're fused together The hair is also a nice touch as it shows different strains moving in different directions The figure is of solid build and Falco is able to stand on it's own without a prop to hold it up

    If you're an amiibo collector, you'll already be picking up Falco. But if you aren't going for the full series, then Falco is still one I'd recommend. He's got a lot of detail in his clothes and the sculpt of his feathers. He looks good next to Fox. If you're a fan of Star Fox like I am, you'll want both. As always, it works with just about any game that uses amiibo, primary among them Super Smash Bros. Star Fox Zero was originally supposed to be released at the same time, but it's been delayed. This may mean Falco will have some use in that game, as well...

    Ah, amiibos. There are so many and here is a Star Fox character, Falco. I got this to get access to the black arwing in Star Fox Zero. The ship looks cool, but it does die faster. It also comes in handy triggering a strike of ships in Star Fox Guard (a clever tower defense game that comes with Zero). The best use might be for Super Smash Bros. And I'm looking forward to transferring the data to the switch and Ultimate!

    I purchased this Falco Amiibo prior to the release of Star Fox Zero for the Wii U. The figure itself is an incredible piece of work, with very detailed specifications that are true to the character's design. The Amiibo is primarily meant to be compatible with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U & Nintendo 3DS, as well as Star Fox Zero, but it also compatible with various other games on both consoles. An excellent purchase for both collectors and gamers who enjoy utilizing Amiibos to unlock content in games.

    Nice entry to the amiibo series. This figure is getting harder to find, so snag him if you see him. The figure was designed with the Smash Bros series in mind, i.e where one can store stats and such related to Falco’s in-game likeness. Personally, I use him in Zelda BotW to help get extra items. The figure has nice details and colors, though, like other amiibo, he doesn’t articulate (kids may be disappointed that it’s not an “action figure.”)

    I wasn't sure about amiibo, not really a statues person, and I didn't like the idea behind content in games (even if only cosmetic, anesthetics, costumes, etc are one of my favorite things in games) being locked behind something physical, and something that could be impossible to find, had me iffy on amiibo. But, the statues grew on me, they actually look a lot better than I thought they would and I'm probably going to start picking up even more.

    Awesome. Just awesome. I never cared about Amiibos at all, until I started playing Breath of the Wild. Now these things serve a purpose. The Zelda themed ones give you awesome in game content (shields, weapons, armor, etc) and all the other ones give you random food and healing items. You can scan each one, once every 24 hours, and the Smash Bros. Link gives you Epona the first time you use it. EPONA, the best horse in the game! I've officially got Amiibo fever now.

    Say hello to Fox McCloud's Wingman, Falco Lombardi and he is Exclusive to Bestbuy. One of the best well designed amiibos and one of the few collectibles from the Star Fox series. This figurine creates a Playable Figure for Super Smash Brother for both Wii U and 3DS, makes an 8 bit version of himself in Super Mario Maker, and hopefully some added feature in the new Starfox Zero that will be available in Spring 2016. Grab this guy before he disappears from this world.

    Detailed Figure

    Many of the earlier waves of amiibos suffered from a lack of detail or oversized models. Falco has a fantastic level of detail from the feathering on his tail to his reflector on his belt. It also helps that his Smash pose is suitable for the base, unlike say Link or Captain Falcon's post, meaning the support stand is minimal and unobtrusive. Definitely one of the better figures and Nintendo has stated there is planned compatibility with the upcoming Star Fox 0.

    I'm a pretty big fan of some of the Toys to Life products. I have every Disney Infinity figure. Since that's been discontinued, I've shifted my efforts to collecting Amiibos. They are very well constructed and highly detailed, much like the Disney Infinity figures. If you're a big fan of certain games and or characters, collecting their Amiibos are fun, whether you're actually using them for a game, or just for display.

    Falco Ammibo

    As far as Amiibo go, the Falco Amiibo is quite detailed, yet is often without mistakes or discolorations that plague the more intricate figures. I like that the plastic 'stand' part beneath his shoes, a rather ugly and sometimes large part on some other amiibo, is minimal. At the time of writing this, Falco can not only be used for Smash Bros., as his figure is based off of, but for Starfox Zero as well, to unlock a black-colored arwing in game.

    Great Use with Star Fox Zero

    At this point everyone knows what amiibo do. I bought the Falco amiibo to use with Star Fox Zero, and for the first time since Smash Bros I think the figure has been put to good use. By scanning Falco, you acquire the black arwing. It allows you to lock onto two targets at once, but the damage you receive is doubled. It gives you something good but takes something away. It's a great way to challenge yourself when you complete the game.

    I don't use the amiibos with games much, if at all but they make great little desk decorations and this one is no different. There's a lot of detail for this little bird and it's just a great piece to have. It may not be fully accurate to how the game depicts them (game tries to have a bit more realism with fur/feathers etc) but I think this looks nicer with a more cartoon/stylized look.
