I did my best to turn a blind eye to anything related to Amiibos when they first came out. Having been caught up in the Skylanders craze – selling them when I thought I was over it and then purchasing them all a second time. Oh the regret. I thought I knew better than to start with Amiibos. I mean, I don’t really play Smash Bros all that much. You could even go as far as to say I have played my own copy once when I had friends over.
After my friend got a Pikachu Amiibo I had to get one also. Just the Pokemon ones I reassured my husband. After all you have to collect anything Pokemon, right? That’s the whole point of the games themselves. It’s in my blood. Suddenly I realised I also needed Kirby as he was my main for so long before Villager came arrived. Thanks to the internet, a husband that works in gaming retail and scalpers I began to realise how rare they were becoming which triggered the obsessive collector inside of me. I promised myself I would only purchase the Amiibo I truly liked. I have kept that promise. Only preordering a few and then picking up some at the shops here and there. Even with this plan of attack I still have the beginnings of a plastic army.
This morning I woke up with news that I would have to try to avoid buying even more Amiibos. Oh god. I AM SO WEAK? How can one not buy them? I don’t even want to use them but I need them in my life. Not only am I torn about buying a few of the cool new ones (I already have Ness, Charizard and Jigglypuff preordered) I can’t choose what colours I want for this guy..
Because of this I pre-ordered the pink and the blue. The green one comes in the collectors edition of Yoshi’s Woolly World so if that releases in Australia (who knows) I will get that too. Which Yoshi would you choose guys? I’m so conflicted. Blue? Green? Pink? All three?
