Well, I can tell you that the two amiibos I have stashed as gifts for friends would have been totally scanned in by me for MK8 by now. I would reap the MK8 benefit without purchasing the amiibos for myself. And I would not have to broche the ethical issue of whether I awkwardly (and selfishly) ask my friends, like 5 seconds after gifting them the amiibos, hey, do you mind if we scanned those amiibos I just gave you into my Wii U?YogurtStorm wrote:That's kind of a shame for sure, I know that I can use my rare Skylanders with the games without needing to open the boxes. Not sure what prompted this design decision, it's not like you can bring a Wii U into the stores with you and scan them straight off the shelves.Vinyl wrote:I also saw that Amiibo does not work while it's still in the box, there is a aluminum cover under it to prevent the Amiibo beeing scanned
And guess what I have here for youMk II wrote:Woot!
My local MediaMarkt shop had a amiibo restock with the most popular models and their "buy two, get one free" promotion is still running.
So i immediately took the opportunity to snatch up good old Mario, the inevitable Pikachu and last but not least Star Fox.
I'm so glad i started off with some of the rarer figures or i wouldn't have had anything to buy now!
My guess would be to still make it sort of 2D, making it look flat, but instead of being paper thin they would make it with about 1cm of dept.
