Amiibo Preorders Are Now Live and My Wallet Weeps

Nintendo Donkey Kong AmiiboAmiibo figures are basically Nintendo’s response to Skylanders or Disney Infinity figurines — character figurines that hold data and interact in a few small ways with the games you play.

With Nintendo’s lovable roster of characters, these bad boys have a ton of charm. Donkey Kong is in the initial batch of 12 characters, but, since there’s no Luigi Death Stare representation here, I think I’ve got my eyes on Link. Or maybe Yoshi. Man, I guess I have a thing for the color green…

It’s already so hard to decide, and there will be more coming down the road in the future.

I’m salivating while my wallet hides, anticipating the abuse I have in store for it.
