What's your opinion on unboxing amiibo? I guess it should be obvious since this one is still in its box, but I kind of like to take them out. I'm not sure if I'm willing to buy two of every amiibo I get, but I've had a couple sitting in-box for at least a month now because I can't decide. What do you think?

@somebenishguy I'll be honest I haven't opened this yet as I have gotten around to using it with my shovel Knight game yet. In general I'm all for opening and using the amiibo as that is what they are intended for, so if you intend to use them open them.
Also, from what I have seen so many collectors just keep them sealed to the point where I'm not convinced they are going to retain any value in future being sealed.

@shadowthreat thanks, that's helpful. And by the way, I own the shovel knight amiibo myself, and I can tell you that aside from it's initial use to unlock features in the Wii u and 3ds versions, you probably won't bother using it much, since it has a limited effect in-game. Unless you're playing with a custom knight, because then you need to use the amiibo to save changes to your knight. I would say that you're probably better off just doing that thing so you can use it without unboxing it
