The first step in my journey to collect every single Super Smash Bros.
Amiibo figure begins! Mario and Wii Fit Trainer arrived in the mail today, and Samus is currently en route. I must say, I'm rather impressed; while in pictures the plastic "cast" on the Wii Fit Trainer's foot looked terrible, in person it's not actually that distracting. Would the figure be better without it? Absolutely - that goes without question. But it is not entirely detrimental to the design.
As for Mario, he's a whole different story... in a good way! The detail on his figure is very nice, and I especially like the fireball. Of note is that his pants have actually had a yellowish tint painted on to represent the glow from the fireball; that's an extremely neat detail that I don't think I've seen in a toy before. If we could see more Amiibo figures like Mario's in the future, I certainly would not complain!
Down below I've included a picture of both Amiibo figures; as I get more, I shall post my progress. Once I have obtained all of the first wave, I shall stack them up against each other and determine my favourites.
Yes, that is the shadow of my head.
So - in the comments below you can recommend which Amiibo figures I should try and get next! I'm keeping them in their cases for now (my hope at the moment is to have a complete collection of unopened Super Smash Bros.
Amiibos), but that might change at a later date? We'll see.
