Japanese version box if it matters to anyone. Gold Mario amiibo is one of the last amiibos still out there worth scalping fanboys but PlayAsia is selling it for £13.69 so that's something.

Wow. An uber ultra rare mass produced piece of gold coloured plastic. Must resist.

To be fair, I'm tempted to purchase. The Japanese box text adds to the authenticity in my opinion. Heat added.

Not really, no.
It plays well in Mario Maker (it sparkles), but no way am I buying any amiibo at £18. There really shouldn't be any 'rare' Mario amiibos.

Agreed. It's not a deal to me either but posted it for the comments.
Still can't see amiibos as being anything other than a rip off, there's potential there but it's just not being used properly

This is what kids in the 80's and 90's would have loved to own because Nintendo was huge back then but now.. those kids are now in their 25's to 30's and more plus, the interest to buy toys has possibly decreased.

I'll admit that I did own a good pile of amiibos in 2015 but thankfully I sold them all to CeX and got my money back -- When they actually had resale value.

EDIT: If it was a week later I'd have been screwed out of it. lol

Good lad. I've always agreed with most things you say and when you were on those amiibo forums I was like no not him too. Glad to see they couldn't keep you mad for too long.
The trend so far has been that the US (english language) Gold amiibos have significant more retail value than the Japanese. I have one unboxed and am reluctant to open it, would probably be better for me to buy the Japanese version just to open for using with Mario Maker and whatever else, and then sell on the more valuable one at some point.

Guess it comes down to either how much you crave the item, or how much joy it will bring you to own it. If you stick it in your loft for a few years you will undoubtedly see decent resale value.

There's no real benefit to amibos full stop. Good money wasted when it could have gone on games Imo.
Not quite breaking news but a Nintendo console is a toy. And whats more like Lego it's roots have been firmly planted and it will always be something for kids that adults happen to enjoy too.
I'll wait for it to come down to £15 at the most. They haven't even done Europe's print run yet so if/when they do it, prices will be driven down even more.
Balls, I paid £1000 for one of these
I don't get the hate toward amiibos. I don't personally collect them (because, y'know, it's a choice) but at the end of the day Nintendo is a toy company and it seems like a reasonable way to make DLC more interesting and appealing.
