Forums - Sony Discussion - Sony figurines are finally happening!

Are they announced for the west? Aren't they just small figurines? Or do they actually do something?

If they don't interact with the software, then they're just figurines, not amiibos.

Exactly lol 



Make it happen, Valve.





The packaging at least makes it very amiibo-ish. Let's be real.




My shelf has become decidedly Nintendo-heavy with all the amiibo... getting Kratos and Crash up there should help provide some variety :D

Otherwise, Croft is the other one I'd like to see hit the market... I must be forgetting like a million Sony ip's that I played as a kid lol, brain fart at the moment.

They're just ordinary figurines for fuck sake



So they're just licensed figurines sold by a 3rd party distributor. Also they do nothing aside from looking ugly. Not sure why Sony would allow this.

Then again, they do allow digital trash on their store like Life of Black Tiger. So maybe they're just branching out to physical trash.

Really? Not just cashing in on what might look like Amiibo's? Those still sell, and that's why Sony has done this. That's what they always do.

You're acting as if action figures aren't available for almost every franchise ever created. Including PlayStation, considering this doesn't even include NFC so is not different from figures that have been available in the past I'm not sure where the hostility over this is coming from. "That's what they always do." ok.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

It's licensed garbage nobody would even know about if news sites didn't jump on it and tried to spin their own narrative for clicks. And I'd be careful with words like "always".
