    I'm kinda surprised this hasn't been discussed yet.  It's a Gamestop exclusive (surprise, surprise).  Does this make the first male Xeno character to get his own figure?  I suppose it isn't exactly a figure, but one could treat it as such.  I like the idea of Amiibos, but I really don't see how it will work beyond Smash Bros.  Wouldn't it be cool to interact with Xenoblade X somehow?  I'm a little uncertain if I'll get it since I have mixed feelings about Shulk, but I'm still kind of intrigued to give this whole Amiibo thing a try as a new Wii U owner.  Thoughts?

    I think this does actually count as the first male Xeno character to get a figure made! I'm going to try to get it just for the novelty of it, even though Shulk isn't my most favorite character.

    For those who are getting them, the Shulk Amiibo comes out this week. At least I got the text from Gamestop saying my preorder will be in tomorrow. Hopefully they won't make it incredibly rare like Xenoblade Chronicles.

    And for those who don't know, the Amiibo will be used in Xenoblade Chronicles 3DS to get tokens that can be used supposedly to unlock music and character models to view. I wonder if it will serve a purpose in Xenoblade Chronicles X...

    Hello, folks . Just re-activated my account here.
    Anyway, Shulk actually isn't the first male Xeno figure that was produced. They probably produced a limited amount but... back when Xenogears got released, there were Elly, Chu-chu AND Fei and Bart figures. I think these were sold with the millenium edition of the game.
    I found this figure of Bart here :

    Quite weird how Bart got the same treatment as Elly's figure (based on their Tanaka artwork) while Fei, the main character, got the SD treatment.

    Whoa, I want a Bart figure. I'll find a sandbox to set him in.

    I finally got a Shulk amiibo! It took me trading away a bunch of Game Boy games I don't play to someone on Facebook, but I finally got him. Smile

    This is making unlocking all those tracks on the Jukebox tons easier. =P

    I think I've given up any hope of obtaining the Shulk Amiibo. It just seemed to be too high-stress. o_O

    I'm actually finding this is true! The scarcity problem is resolved enough that I was able to pick one up at Best Buy and received an extra one this xmas from some friends who didn't know I already had one. ^^;
