Well, I finally have my first Amiibo and what better way to start off a collection than with Toon Link. My intentions were to initially buy Amiibo Link from series 1, but once I saw the final release I passed on him. I just didn’t like the ugly yellow stand and the way Link was facing, so it was a hard decision on passing him. Thankfully, Nintendo did release a proper Link figure in the form of Toon Link.
Toon Link was released around February 2015, and was part of wave 3 that was compatible with Super Smash Bros. Wii U. He retailed for $13.99 Can ($12.99 US), and attainting him was fairly easy within the first week of release.
I never planned on getting into Amiibo, but once I saw Toon Link I knew I had to get him. The design of the card back and the figure is neat and colourful (containing that Nintendo magic). For now, I plan to keep my collection mint on card because I prefer to display them that way. And with a great “must-have” figure like this, I can’t wait to see what other classic character is released in the future (NES Link –fingers crossed).
