Now that the series one Amiibo figures have been revealed and are ready for pre-order from various outlets, let’s have a look at what the community thinks of each figure. The twelve starter figures are mostly a mix of relatively popular characters that should lead the charge of a new initiative, including Mario, Samus, and Fox, while newcomers to Super Smash Bros. are also included. Both the Villager and the Wii Fit Trainer have already sold out of pre-orders on Amazon, so it’s interesting to see how quickly these figures are going.

My personal favorite of the group is Donkey Kong. I love the way he’s posed to look as if he’s about to jump on top of someone. It’s a great action pose and I wish some of the other figures were a bit more actiony, too. Yoshi just seems to be flexing, but at least the Wii Fit Trainer seems to be doing some sort of yoga move.

So what’s your opinion? Who is your favorite of the series one Amiibo figures?

  • Thomas Vienna

    Kirby ftw! I just feel like Kirby would look better in my room. It’s more “ornamental,” and less toyish.

  • Superxtreme

    They all look good. Can’t decide 🙁

  • Jack

    I love them all actually. 😛 Kirby and Link are my favorites though.

    • paulthevgking

      me too

  • bakedapplepie

    I want them all! But if I had to pick one, it would have to be Link.

  • Ducked

    This was tough.


    1: Pikachu
    2: Kirby
    3: Yoshi
    4: Link
    5: Marth
    6: Mario

    • Josiah Parsons

      I really have to disagree. Pikachu, Kirby, and Yoshi are cute and all, but if I’m paying 12 bucks for a plastic figure I really want detail that I couldn’t get if I made them out of Model Magic. My top 6 list goes:
      1: Marth
      2: Fox
      3: Link
      4: Samus
      5: Peach
      6: DK
      Also, I really love playing as Pikachu and Kirby (and probably the Villager) so I don’t want to play against them.

  • MewtwoWillBeBack

    Amiibo: GOTTA GET ‘EM ALL


    Really want Kirby,Dededee and Meta Knight…I’ll settle for just Kirby though

  • Easy for me.


  • Jack5221

    They all look so damn cool!!! My top 3 favorites are Yoshi, Samus and Link. 😀

  • Arkamarky

    I wonder if Pikachu could be an Amiibo Figurine for Pokken to.

    • TylerTerror1089

      I hope pokken comes to the wii u, it better!

      • abe

        Nintendo of Europe trademarked Pokken Fighters and Pokken Tournament. We know Tournament is the arcade game, fighters could the “home game” BUT seeing as it was NoE that trademarked (not Gamefreak or Namco) it, i would suspect that Tournament was for Wii U and Fighters for 3DS. Amiibo could be used. Hell if Nintendo and Gamefreak though it through i’d have Amiibo’s work on the arcade version too

  • jreed3842

    Peach and Yoshi are a must buy for me! If I had all the money in the world I’d get them all!

  • Eduardo

    Really like most of them, but will probably get Link and Yoshi. Maybe Marth as his pose is great!

  • Mr Ninty

    as freddy mercury would say * i want it all, i want it all, i want it all and i want it now*

  • TylerTerror1089

    I don’t want all of them, just the characters I love a lot. Ill be buying Link, Maro, Samus, Fox, and Marth. Got em all preordered from GameStop too!

  • TylerTerror1089

    Mario* haha oops xD

  • TylerTerror1089

    For the next wave, ill be getting Pit, Shulk and Palentana

  • Martin Kearney

    Wait why the hell is everyone choosing link?

    • companyoflosers

      cuz links a badass

    • Mayoo


      at least that’s what he said when I asked him.

      • gimpcell

        Impossible!! I have never heard Link speak. Maybe you mean a physical gesture for confirmation?

        • Bowsah

          He actually says “come on” in Wind Waker, lol. And technically doesn’t grunts count as “talking?” I don’t think someone would be able to make grunts if they didn’t have the ability to speak.

          • rp17

            Um no. Almost every deaf/mute person can grunt, laugh, and make other noises.

  • John Smith

    Will this SAVE nintendo?

    • companyoflosers

      nintendo never needed saving…

  • Trevor

    I want them all, but my favorites are Link and Mario.

  • Milky Bacons

    Good thing I used Ebay to get money, or else I wouldn’t have a chance to get any of them.
    But dat Link Amiibo, though. That’s amazing.

  • Alex0714

    I like samus’s stance…so i guess i’ll go with samus.

  • Daniel Ireland

    Why did they even make a Wii Fit Trainer? lol

    • Korv13

      Because it’s the most appropriate Amiibo to make you better at Smash! 😉

  • bistricky

    I am getting them all.
    Some are very collectible with a lower amount being made (ie. Marth & Wii Fit Trainer).

    Pre-order SOLD OUT …. WoW …. that is amazing.

    Already witnessing why the amiibo will be a hot toy for this Christmas / holiday season..

    • rp17

      I would love to get them all, but $12 each is much too expensive for a college student.

      • steveb944

        Just don’t eat well for a bit. Been there done that.

    • Zach Cruz

      I pre-ordered the popular ones thinking those would sell out first 😛 guess I’ll have to pick up those when I can.

  • Wooopigsooie

    My favorite is the Fox one, but I would also love to see a Captain Olimar figure as he is (or at least was) my main in Smash and represents one of Nintendo’s bigger franchises that recently garnered some attention on Wii U. I say keep the momentum going!

  • I’ll go with Link, and to be added in the collection as other favorites I would say Samus and Fox.

  • companyoflosers

    interesting to see the characters who will be starters this time and more interestingly, the characters who have always been starters that arent.

  • Phoenix

    Hope series two comes out soon, I was looking forward to characters like Mega Man and Shulk.

  • NocheRosa

    I will get my princess, of course, but all of them looks awesome.
    PD: I love how Peach is so unpopular xD

    • abe

      i’m getting the princess peach one for my “daughter” (she in fact wants Mario)

  • Petri

    None of those really sparks my interest, but probably go for Peach just to look if you can see anything under that skirt.

  • LevenThumps

    Since Luigi isn’t there, my vote goes to Marth

  • HorizonChaser

    I’m only interested in the ones for MK8 since I’m not getting SSB.

    • MetroidZero

      You’re not getting SSB? Why not?

    • steveb944

      Wouldn’t that be all of them then? Far as I know they’re all compatible.

  • Justin Thomas McGowan

    Link all the way

  • Superbax

    I’m waiting for an Olimar one.

  • Chelseafan1989

    Fox looks too cool.

  • Yousif Alromaithi

    I will get link so far but I am open if they had Shulk. Mario is a must for all Nintendo fans.

  • MasterpieceGamer

    I had preordered all but not Wii Fit Trainer. 🙂 🙂

    Cannot wait for those and SSB. 4 for Wii U. 😛

  • andrewjcole

    Lol… Kirby’s is in such an amazing action pose.

  • Galactus The Planet Devourer

    KIRBY looks cool ! I also think, Yoshi, villager, Fox all look great. That’s not the best Link figure i’ve seen.

  • Milky Bacons

    I just hope that’s not the official packaging, because if it is then I will never want to ever take it out! xD

  • Jeff Evans

    The best amiibo of them all is Link hands down

  • MetroidZero

    Samus. Why did you ask?

  • NintendoPSXTheSecond

    But Link and Samus already have high quality figurines…Give Marth and Kirby a shot :c

  • GregoryTheRainMaker


  • PS4WiiURocks

    Getting almost all of them

  • chunter

    What will these do? I can’t justify buying these things when I don’t know what you are able to do with them? Am I alone in this thinking?

    • Cyntheta Luis

      Yes you can do something with them, you can build a house for your figures and take selfies with them 🙂 In all seriousness the figures looks nice, and transfer data is a prominent and promised feature.

    • Ramde Saeed

      Let me give you an example: You play Super Smash Bros, while in a fight you can put the figure on that scanner thing on your wii u gamepad. The Character you chose appears in a game and makes some moves (or even play longer). You can level up the amiibos. (The more often you use them the more level it gets up of course) To make each Figure individual than others, you can change skills. There are going to come more games which are going to use that feature

  • DL

    LINK ALL DA WAY 😀 but why is there a yoshi and not luigi? >.< Makes no sense to meh!

  • BrBa

    in term of game character, I like Link the most. But in term of amiibo, I like Fox the most.

  • Kamon

    I don’t play the Prime series at all but Samus’ is easily the coolest one.

  • majora :D

    tfw no Toon Link Amiibo yet

  • Fox, gotta show Starfox some love, but Link is in 2nd just by a smidge.

  • Nookling

    I know Peach may not be everybody’s favorite fighter but her amiibo is one of the most detailed so I don’t get why it’s so low. And poor Wii Fit Trainer! She is beast in this game though

  • Nookling

    Palutena will have an awesome amiibo

  • Fuzzylittlebastard

    Samus is best. Samus will always be best.

  • Prizm

    Wii Fit Trainer sold out? I mean really? That’s gotta be the most lame character.

  • Prizm

    The Pikachu one looks really cheap, at least in the photos. They didn’t even separate his arms or legs, just kept them fused with his body to make the mold cheaper.

  • Petri

    Pre-ordered Kirby, of course the most powerful being in the world,
    Wii Fit trainer, just to have it, Samus, just because she’s badass, and Peach for a spur of the moment.
    My wallet is going to hate me…

  • Alexander Kleinwechter

    My fave are Link and Samus, but i voted for samus

  • steveb944

    Considering that Link Amiibo and Hyrule Warriors are #1 best seller on Amazon…why is there a survey?

    Side note, was Marth even available on Amazon? I have yet to see stock.

  • Des

    Mario, followed by Donkey Kong. Guess I’m just old school like that.

  • It was hard to choose between samus and link…I chose Samus.

  • Moyack

    gotta buy them all! gotta buy them all!

  • Timothy Mercier

    I want Pikachu and DK.

  • AM Real

    Fox, Samus, Marth

  • Poekoko

    So there’s a WiiFit Trainer, but no Megaman… Nintendo, what were you thinking!?

  • james

    49 votes for Wii Fit Trainer? lol.. I really want Link, Samus and Mario.
