CCC Says: "Another article from Jenni about Amiibos? I know, but bear with me. This will be the last one for a while, I swear. The commotion surrounding the final designs for the Amiibos lured me in and, as a NFC and general figure afficianado, I felt like I had to weigh in on the issue. Especially since I happened to see a few of the final products on display in a Walmart display case.
The Amiibos appearance is exactly what you would expect from a $13 figure. The prototypes are of course going to look exceptional. Extra effort goes into them. They're designed to be the epitome of everything the Amiibo figures should be. They're an ideal. It's only natural that the final product wouldn't be an exact replica."
