Didn't you know? They even invented water!!!

Yeah but they put too much of it in Pokemon Omega Ruby.

Which is their absolute prerogative for inventing it!

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.

I wouldn't say Amiibo packaging is ripped off but it's pretty standard figurine packaging. Take for example, TMNT figurine packages which date back from the 90s:

I get what you're saying. This is a fairly standard small figure package, similar to many Star Wars ones. But looking at the Amiibo and Totaku packaging, some things just seem similar such as color coding, text (name of the character) in front of the case, the large character artwork on the surface behind the case.

And you know what, I think it's totally OK. Amiibo's sold well. So it would be smart to market them similarly (if they aimed for that). It's good money and ultimately helps the IP imo.



Reminds me of that time Sony stole Nintendo's idea of making Video Games™.

As if that was the whole story. Sony actually wanted to not just make Video Games™ but NINTENDO™© Video Games™! Not a single original bone in their body.

How are these any different than Funko Pop figures?

Last I checked, they had Crash, Kratos, Aloy, Spyro, Sackboy, Heihachi, etc. Funko figures. These just look a little more like the game models.

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

Like most action figure-like product line you mean?

The Pops are an ugly excuse for Westernized chibi figures.



I'm really curious as to the age of some of these posters. My god, if you re-read your posts 10 years from now you would look back in shame. This isn't aimed at everyone, but wow.

I get that it's "fun" to "debate" (read "argue") from time to time, but a fair percentage of posts can pretty much be discredited immediately based on their blatant ignorance.

You make a post to diss Sony and you think the other Nintendo fans are high-fiving you for doing them a favor; well not me.

Sure, but they're still licensed figures, just like these new ones.

Yet somehow these are copying Amiibo?



I don't follow Nintendo-Life. Are they always that passive-aggressive and immature? That article was several levels of awkward. Made much funnier by linking to pushsquare at the bottom that rips this joke in half.

Why are they producing a Tekken 7 one? The game isn't a Sony IP. The Game wasn't exclusive to Sony. Is it just because it will have Noctis in it?

The bloodborne one looks sick.
