Forums - Sony Discussion - Sony figurines are finally happening!

can't believe Sony copied Nintendo by making toys based on their characters, which we know know Nintendo was the first to do out of any company in history

but it's no surprise, Sony also completely copied Nintendo by making their console be able to connect to the internet. The same internet Nintendo invented. Bastards

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.

You're not understanding what I was trying to say. Figurines are okay, and everyone does it duh. I specifically aimed my comment towards the packaging, which is very amiibo-ish. Try not to put words in my mouth thanks.

That would require amiibo packaging to be unique and special. But really this shouldn't bother you.



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

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

It is 10$.

I only said it looks very similar. If Amiibo packaging is ripped off from something else, then show it to me and i'll drop it.

"But really this shouldn't bother you."

Sorry, but who's getting defensive over this? Not my fault that Sony wants in on amiibo-like figures. I actually welcome it. I love figurines. That's how I see Amiibo's too. Figurines first. Cheap figurines of popular characters.

People who are using this opportunity to give pot-shots to Sony are being petty. It's just licensed out characters for some random niche obscure figurine set. It doesn't have any electronic use, it isn't a big focus by Sony, and the only thing that even looks remotely similar is the packaging. They're just figurines, the foundation at the bottom of the figurines is quite common. This is about as legit as trying to say that DND figures of Crash Bandicoot were copying Amiibo...

Nice. Ill pick up a few of those.



I preordered the Hunter figure from Bloodborne. Had to get it from a Benelux retailer I know of. Costs 14,98 Euro.




How are they Sony's answer to amiibo? They're just figurines lol.

They aren't even made or distributed by Sony... They're just licensed by a third party lol.
