E3 2014: Nintendo Teases New Amiibo Figures -- Game & Watch, Toad, and More

If you pay careful attention to Nintendo's E3 presentation, you may have gotten a glimpse at some upcoming Amiibo figurines. Who do you want to see?

Nintendo showed off several figurines for its upcoming Amiibo figurine program during yesterday's E3 presentation, but the company may have given us a tease at some unrevealed characters that it plans on bringing to the program soon as well.

The image above, captured from the Nintendo live stream, shows the following unconfirmed character portraits floating to Amiibo:

  • Mr. Game & Watch
  • Pikmin
  • 8-bit Mario
  • Toad
  • Bowser
  • Tom Nook
  • Isabelle
  • Toon Link
  • Luigi

The figurines on hand at the Nintendo booth (with the caveat right on the display case that they're "Prototypes: Not Final Configuration") include:

  • Princess Zelda
  • Marth
  • Wii Fitness Trainer
  • Donkey Kong
  • Fox McCloud
  • Princess Peach
  • Samus Aran
  • Pit
  • Link
  • Yoshi
  • Animal Crossing Villager
  • Pikachu
  • Kirby
  • Mario

While the focus for Amiibo right now is obviously on Super Smash Bros., some of the characters teased in the image above haven't yet been confirmed for an appearance in Nintendo's brawler. Mr. Game & Watch made a cameo in the Pac-Man reveal trailer, so maybe he'll return as a support trophy. Isabelle has been confirmed as a trophy already, and she'll likely share that role with Tom Nook. That only leaves us to conjecture about the role 8-bit Mario and Toad may play in the game.

Nintendo has an almost limitless pantheon of characters to choose from, and most of the characters above seem like pretty obvious choices to put out as figurines. But what unannounced character do you most want to see as an Amiibo figurine? Let us know in the comments below.

I was extended about this then I remembered Nintendo fevers Japan. So to the people that likes to collect everything. I see Japan getting extra stuff and selling it for 5 times the cast over auction sites. Hopefully I’m wrong but I had to get a cheating devise to get event Pokémon that I would never have gotten. Thanks Nintendo for encouraging me to cheat. But I’ll collect them tell I see special ones you have fly across the world to get then I will quit.

At first I was like "I'm too old for that."

Then I saw Samus.

lol! way to stick a Luigi Death Stare in there. I'm hoping for a Luigi Death Stare figurine. Otherwise I could see myself trying to collect the whole set.

Very cool. I just need to play the game for a while so I know what my best characters are, and then I'll buy those. :)

Even without their amiibo effects, I'll probably buy them based on their appearance alone. 
They'll look good on a shelf together.

@Rayzakk I'm pretty sure I'll be buying all of these as will a lot of other people.  You have to keep in mind that just like Skylanders and Disney Infinity, these market to both gamers and toy collectors.  This is a great combination and with great characters that only Nintendo can offer, I think this will be a big seller for them.
