Just a heads up that these PlayStation themed Amiibo like figures are now in stock to preorder at Game UK. Not a deal as such, but saves the expense of import for anyone interested.

Now reduced from £15 to £12.99 - perhaps someone read this thread!

Surely "in stock to preorder" is a contradiction in terms?

Also, £15?! They were slated to be $10 a piece. Granted they look pretty cool but have no NFC functionality or anything else.

Don't get me wrong, I love playstation. But these are pure Amiibo ripoff (in every sense of the word ripoff)!
They're amiibo without the functionality.... So they're little statues/figures and in reality nothing like an amiibo. And as mentioned above way overpriced compared to the American RRP.
Dunno why people keep calling this amiibo. Statues existed before Nintendo made them, and these don't have the NFC that make amiibo amiibo...

Apparently any statue or figure is now an Amiibo ripoff?

I agree with the price though, I was expecting at most £10 when they are $10 in the US.

Yup I also heard they were $10, either GAME are shafting us or the price has gone up
I want these but not at 15£

So not in stock, not even out yet, and more expensive than RRP. Brilliant deal!
£13.49 From forbidden planet with £5.50 p&p. Will work out cheaper from there if buying more than 4
Well it's not quite a Tota, and it's not quite a kotaku but man hehehehehehe....so to answer what it is I don't know

Clearly aiming at the same market though. Collectible figurines of multiple different licences. Even the packaging is near identical.
Had a pre-order on for several days now, most because there's one I have myself if I miss.

I am going to feel gouged if they don't turn up cheaper somewhere though. I'm not really intending to keep the pre-order. I think they're a rip off. Voted cold.

I think they are exclusive to Game in the UK and Gamestop in America.

I've not seen anything to suggest that either. Normally they are quite eager to make a song and dance when something is game exclusive.

So I think if you were to buy all 7 it would work out about £12 cheaper getting them from FP

I think I read somewhere they are made by a company that is part of gamestop. So maybe in the UK they are more as they are imported or something?

One other thing. It looks like gamestop ireland have a (not so) mysterious 8th figure (a female character with a bow):

I saw it in a gaming 'news' video when they first announced them but they must have gotten it wrong
At the $10 RRP I was interested. £15 is way too much.

Bows in Horizon don't look like that. They're big, clunky and metal. That's a thin wooden bow.
So maybe it's Lara?
Heat for the heads up for people. I want all of these, if they are available somewhere for £10. Fingers crossed that happens. Can only agree with the above comments
I hadn't heard of these before seeing this deal. I don't feel like I've gained anything knowing they (will) exist now I've seen it. It doesn't actually do anything unlike multiple similar products and, in my opinion, it doesn't even look especially nice. The base on this Crash one looks particularly crumby and cheap.

Big waste of an opportunity.
Nintendo invented everything apparently.

That figure has wraps on wrists and shins and a skirt or robe with flowing tassels, I've never seen Lara dress like that. My money's on Aloy.
Yes they have no funciotinalty like amiibo, but i know alot of people who collect ammibo just for the figurines they dont care about the nfc functions.


Oh and £15 is typical game!

These should be £10 max,

Kratos son from the new God of war game is my bet. Have 2 pre ordered but might just buy them from a local forbidden planet if other places don't stock them.

Wave 2 is going to include the likes of Sonic and Ni no Kuni character.

Spot on, that's definitely Atreus now that you've said it.

More retailers to be stocking these according to the PR rep in that video. Also the mystry figure is confirmed to be Krato's son from the new God of war game according to the offical website.

Playstation Gear website will also be selling them soon (according to that above website) but none availabe yet.

Game do like to hike prices. I struggle to believe how they nearly went bump then came back from the brink with their ridiculous high prices and survived. A bit like hmv.
They have dropped their price down to £12.99 now. Anyone that has it pre-ordered already would have an email about this.

Phew! Thank goodness
I really hate when people use the word amiibo instead of figurine, really messes up my searches! was the same with those damn Rabbids figurines
