    Amiibo add even more to do in a massive game

    Super Smash Bros Ultimate impliments amiibo compatibility like the previous game (Super Smash Bros for Wii U and 3DS) did and is releasing new amiibo for all new characters coming to the game, as well as rereleasing the previous amiibo for returning Super Smash Bros characters. Amiibo can be scanned into the game as a CPU character. They start at Level 1 and can be trained up to Level 50. As they level up through battle, they learn how to fight better and can become quite challenging to defeat by the time they reach Level 50. They can be played against or alongside as teammates so it adds a ton of extra possibilities to the game. This amiibo specifically is Ridley, from the Metroid franchise. The figure itself is incredible.Ridley is a massive character in-game and that translates well to the amiibo (though for obvious reasons he's not as large as he is in-game). The details and colors are great, perfectly representing the character from the game. A must-have for Metroid fans, Ridley mains, and amiibo collectors.

    A great sculpt with a mediocre paint job

    The Amiibo of Ridley is awesome hands down and so grateful to have one. The sculpting job they did on him is amazing and has great little details in his beak and everything down to his thin tail. The slightly disappointing part of this amiibo is his Paintjob is a bit flat in a lot of areas with lacking shadows for depth and good feel like most amiibos. Which is slightly upsetting as this is one of the more expensive amiibo series compared to the older series. Ganondorf is a great example of an older one with great sculpt and paint while costing less. So this is where you can definitely see some disappointment when you set your painting standards higher on other amiibos. Otherwise this is such a great amiibo and good luck getting a figure of Ridley anywhere else lol. This will likely be his only ever.

    An Improvement from Earlier Smash Amiibo

    Being a fan of the franchise, I've bought all previous Metroid-Series amiibo, Ridley is definitely one of the better ones, though with a few minor issues. The detail of the model and the posing is great, but unlike the image shown, it lacks a lot of depth in color. Depending on what sort of lighting you want to display this amiibo in, it can easily just come off as a purple blob. Regardless, it's *significantly* improved from the original Smash Bros. Samus Aran amiibo. If you're just looking to use it for it's in-game functions, the figure-player feature returns from Smash Bros. for WiiU where you can 'train' your amiibo to fight and power it up along the way. Fun stuff, but nothing amazing.

    A intresting new design for a classic character!

    The first thing of note when 8t comes tok the Ridley Amiibo is that Ridley has been given a new design for Super smash Bros Ultimate. The design greatly varies in comparison to any of his past iterations. As a huge fan of the Metroid series I was honestly a little dissapointed by this. This Amiibo is the first official figure outside of a 1" low detail unpainted figure only released in Japan. So I really would have prefered one of the more classic designs! All that said though this new design made for a great figure with tons of detail, and I would recommend any fellow Metroid fans pick it up!

    Too big for the game, but not the figure!

    For years they said he was too big to be put into Smash, yet here we are with Ridley both in the game and as a really detailed figure. I believe it's off the Other M design just far more refined giving it a more impressive look. It's pretty imposing but no larger than the other amiibos you see. I got this as a desk decoration so I can't comment on it's use in games. It looks nice and feels solid. Parents: If you're getting this for a kid, it's not a pose-able figure and it's mounted to the base permanently. Don't expect to have adventures or fights with other toys.

    Nintendo's amiibo figures, particularly their Smash Bros. line, have always been known for their incredible attention to detail, and Ridley takes things to a whole new level. Even if you're indifferent to the amiibo's functionality within the Smash Bros. game itself, the figurine is astonishingly detailed and probably the most intricate figure Nintendo has produced so far, and it's a great-looking collectible for fans of Nintendo and the Smash Bros. and Metroid series. Highly recommended!

    While people keep spending money in digital stuff like fortnite skins, you might not have a fancy clothes for your characters here but many uses even in multiple games, I like the idea of feeding this character in your smash bros game like if it was a pokemon training it for fight, I want to get more of them and put them to fight each to other while I spectate the mesmerizing stages of smash bros, it’s a tiny charming figurine that can be collected, something that you actually touch (tangible vs digital)

    They did it. Those absolute madmen did it. Too big for Smash? No. Too big for Amiibo? I think not. This figure is aesthetically pleasing no matter which direction that you are given the privilege to view it. Ridley represents the apex form of beast and sentient creature, both brutal and beautiful at once. In Smash Bros, his final smash will leave you pulverized. But for his amiibo figure, the only thing that he'll pulverize is the lock you keep around your heart.

    The detail on this figure is amazing. The first line of amiibo pales in comparison to some of these new figures. Ridley's sinister personality is brought to life faithfully with this figure. It has nice detail on the wings. He has sinewy scales. The base is made to look like Ridley is shattering the ground which is a nice touch. The claws are curved, I assume to be more child friendly. As a lifelong Metroid fan, I am thrilled to receive a Ridley figure of this quality.

    Ridley is an awesome Amiibo

    I wish this was out a year ago when my two boys went through a strange phase of being obsessed with Ridley. However, I was still happy to pick it up recently with the release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It's a great Amiibo with the usual high quality Amiibo build. This one is an average sized Amiibo, but with a slightly larger spread due to the wings and outstretched claws. I haven't used it with any games yet, but it looks nice hanging out by the TV for now.

    Amiibo's are usually great and this one is no exception. The functionality is useless for super smash in my opinion so don't buy it unless you want to display it. For displaying purposes, it looks amazing! Ridley is an awesome character and this amiibo captures his design perfectly. It is unfortunate that amiibos got a price increase, but I still feel like this figure is worth the price. Absolutely get it if you're a Ridley fan!

    Like my review summary says "Got what I paid for". I picked up this amiibo the Day Super Smash Ultimate came out just so I would have a dedicated amiibo for smash. It looks great, the NFC on it was clean and now I get to "smash" away with Ridley on the game. I'm quite pleased with my purchase. Oh, and an added benifit, it's just a cool looking piece to add to my toy collection.

    I don't have Smash, so I don't get Amiibo for use in that game. I get them to collect and have my kids use as toys (contradictory I know) A good interpretation of Ridley. More fragile than the other sculpts, so kids don't get to play with this one. I like the added support effects, but not how far forward he's tilted. Takes up a bit more space.

    They're priced a little more than the rest of the Super Smash Bros. series of amiibo, but you'll see the extra detail in these immediately, especially when compared with the original set of figures that came out with Smash Wii U. Ridley is a great amiibo to have and goes nicely with the Samus and Metroid amiibo from the Samus Returns series of amiib.

    It's so hard to find amiibos and not to mention Best buy's exclusive deals.anyone can have an electronic store exclusive not only draw more money but puts your name in certain collectors minds by being in price guides you tube videos by collectors etc advertising you didn't pay for Funko amiibos etc so the more you carry the more it helps you..

    Enjoy fierce competition with this Nintendo Ridley amiibo. This villain of the Metroid series is a ruthless fighter, and its dragon-like appearance is a beastly addition to your collection. The special moves of this Nintendo Ridley amiibo are accessed through NFC touchpoint technology and open up new levels of gaming on Super Smash Bros Ultimate.

    I know a lot of people have really felt passionately about adding this character to Smash Bros, but I'm not one of them. Regardless, we did get a cool looking amiibo out of it, so I can't say it was all bad. This is a very detailed figure, and I actually really like whatever that is going on between his feet and the base. Looks neat.

    This has to be the most fierce looking Amiibo created, yet. Metroid is such a classic series, and now that Ridley is in Super Smash Bros Ultimate, a whole new generation of gamers will be introduced to the iconic series. Such a great looking, detailed Amiibo. The base is super unique, too! Definetely a great addition to any collection!

    We finally got Ridley in Smash and his amiibo is a work of art! The detail work on him is perfect and he just looks impressive sitting in a collection (he is bigger than the Smash Bowser and Charizard) He is a bit more fragile than the other amiibo of Ultimate Wave 1 so be sure to handle him with care if you display out of box

    4 Stars for the Red Nintendo Logo

    As an amiibo collector, I am disappointed to see that the newest figures in the Smash Bros. lineup have the Nintendo logo in red on the box, while the entire rest of the Smash amiibos do not. These few will stand out in a very slight, first-world problem way among the rest of the characters. Outside of that, the figure looks fantastic
