    A great looking figure of an iconic character

    All of the amiibo figures have great detail for the price. For anyone who's a fan of the characters they are really worth having even if they aren't used in a game. I collect my favorite characters or ones that I just think look nice, and Pac-Man belongs to the latter category. He's fun to use in game and his personality shines through in this figure! For anyone curious: all amiibo in the Smash Brothers line are basically NPC friends that learn how you play as you fight with and against them. They become better fighters as they gain levels, capping at 50. They have limited functionality in other games, such as adding costumes to Mario Kart 8 or giving random gifts in Hyrule Warriors. I use them more in Hyrule Warriors than the game they were created for.

    Not many perks in-game, but a nice Pac-Man figure

    I got this Pac-Man figure on sale at Best Buy to try out the Amiibo function with the Switch. This one gets you a Pac-Man outfit for your Mii in Mario Kart 8, and the ability to "train" a Pac-Man in Smash Bros. Ultimate–just as an AI bot to fight against other friends' Amiibos, I suppose. As far as the physical figure goes, the sculpt and colors are on point and it certainly looks like the modern incarnation of Pac-Man, so the designer did a great job there. As a non-Nintendo character though, don't expect much functionality in games outside of Smash Bros. and Mario Kart 8.

    Pac Man, who doesn't love Pac Man? So when I saw this Amiibo I was amped! Here is the thing though, unless I am simply missing something (which is possible because I am new to both Smash Bros and Amiibo's as I had never bought one) I cannot for the life of me get this set up to play with him, he only scans into play as a computer. Wish I would have known that about Amiibo's as I would not have bought the Amiibo and I would have bought the Smash Bros Fighter pass instead. Live and learn.

    When it comes to amiibos, the simpler the character, typically the better it looks. This is true for Pacman. Probably the most common of this wave of figurines, it is also a very attractive addition to your collection. One thing that I would point out is that this figure does seem to be a bit large compared to the scale of other figures. This is probably due to its round shape, which adds to the overall volume. I do not take mine out of the packaging, so I am unable to say how the figure looks when directly next to another SSB amiibo.

    4 Stars For Japanese Merch

    Apparently Gamestop and Best Buy both think it's cool to sell Japanese amiibos. They look like the American ones, but the box is slightly different. If you open these up to use them, I suppose there's no harm in buying them, but if you're collecting amiibos like myself and are going for the American set and grab this in a hurry out of sheer excitement having never seen it... Well, you've been bamboozled too. Sorry, bruh.

    Who Doesn't like Pac-Man?!?

    I am an old-school gamer...like as far back as 1980 in the arcades. I also grew up watching the Pac-Man cartoon on Saturday mornings! When this figurine was released in 2014/2015, I snatched him up! Now, it has been re-released in December 2018. My 13-year-old cousin, who was previously not into collecting amiibo, saw mine and wanted one of his own. So, this was bought for him! Thanks Nintendo!

    Amiibo Pac-Man

    Nintendo's toys-to-life franchise known as Amiibo has become an important key point for them and for good reasons. Many games feature fun exciting ways to play and unlock content within Amiibo such have a special hide and seek game in Toad's Treasure Tracker or unlockable costumes in such games as Yoshi's Woolly World and Mario Kart 8. They also make a great collectible in itself due to Nintendo having a limited amount of merchandise for their franchises prior to Amiibo.

    The Pac Man amiibo is a well made figure. If you find one I recommend picking it up. It's Pac Man. Who doesn't like Pac Man? The thing you need to know when buying this is it's limited functionally in games right now. Training it in Smash Bros. is fun, it unlocks costumes/skins in certain games and gives a random bonus in other games. If you think amiibo are cool figures or you want another fighter to train for Smash Bros. amiibo tourneys, Pac Man is a great choice.

    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.

    Pac-Man amiibo reprint

    This amiibo was reprinted utilizing the same design and pose from the Smash for Wii U rather than the updated pose from Smash Ultimate. As the model is not different from Smash Ultimate this amiibo is still a faithful representation of the character you play in the new game. This amiibo is currently exclusive to Best Buy.

    I actually bought this and the other Amiibo figures to just collect them because of how detailed they are. But might me using it for the new SSB game coming in December. I would recommend this if either you have SSB game or if you are just a fan and want to have a collection of your favorite characters.

    The Amiibo figure line is both great for collector's and game players combined. The figures look great on a shelf, but also have NFC communication on the controller itself, storing data for any game that supports it. I recommend collecting your favorites if you haven't started already!

    With a simple design and bright colors this amiibo looks great. So far this amiibo has functionality in Smash Bros. for the Wii U where you can level up a figure player and in Mario Kart 8 where you can unlock a costume. It seems that it will have functionality in the upcoming Yoshi's Wooly World where it will unlock a Pacman themed skin for the player.

    I started late collecting amiibos and I regret it now. Its really difficult to find a Pac Man amiibo nowadays and I'm glad I picked up this one sitting in a shelf by itself. It's not much useful for the current game I'm playing but it adds to my collection.

    Amiibo always have such wonderfully high quality, especially compared to their price. I got this Packman re-release on sale, but it's such a great statue I would have easily paid full price. The uses in games for amiibo are somewhat limited but the collectability is high.

    It is everyone's favorite! Every remembers the classic Pac Man and this Amiibo is similar to the Pac Man from the Pac Man Adventures cartoon from the 80's. Build solid just like other Amiibos and this will be an enjoyable addition to anyone's collection.

    I got this to accompany my Pac Man 20th Anniversary arcade game and the design matches perfectly. Wish it was bigger but for an Amiibo, it's a good size. There's a seam in the plastic between his front and back but its not too distracting. Itd be better as a single piece.

    Becareful when you get this one in particular. The front side of one of these in the store was a slightly different color than the back. This is just something to know if you care about that sort of thing. Luckily my store had two so I got the better one with consistent color. It's a nice figure. Pretty nice for an amiibo.

    I have been collecting the amiibos for only a few months now-at first I thought they were a bit ridiculous, but after I started seeing how many people wanted these things I started to really see something in collecting them, I really enjoy the Pacman one because he is a great character and he is a good one for the collection!

    Pac-Man is my favorite character in Smash Bros so I definitely wanted to get an amiibo of him. The amiibo is perfectly sculpted with a clean paint job. The colors used are perfect as well. He looks exactly like most modern Pac-Man art.
