With all the hubbub surrounding amiibo at the moment, you’re probably scrambling to figure out which ones are worth seeking out and which ones to leave at the store — the ones that are actually there, anyway. Super Mario Maker will be compatible with over 50 amiibo figures and there’s a whole new bushel of them on the way.
If you had to choose only a handful of these (often expensive) little guys, which ones should you go for? Which ones look the coolest? All of them, that’s a trick question. If you need help making some tough decisions, here are some of the best-looking and most interesting figures, just in case you’ve got limited shelf space or a limited budget. You’re not alone here at amiibo Anonymous.
Yoshi’s Woolly World amiibo
Even though Yoshi’s Woolly World isn’t out in the West just yet (pretty bizarrely, I might add) that hasn’t stopped all of us from fawning over how adorable the pink, green, and blue Yoshi amiibo are. They’re even made out of yarn! They have no hard plastic base at the bottom like the rest of the figures out there, so they’re easier to snuggle with. Or, you know, display with your other figures. I totally didn’t say snuggle. These may just be some of the most unique amiibo you can collect, so be ready for them to come out where you can preorder them, or grow a small cache of money so you can snipe them from eBay. These are some of the figures you’re definitely not going to want to sleep on.
