It’s undeniable that amiibo have been a success story for Nintendo, with the collectible figures setting the internet abuzz every time a new wave is announced. As a result it’s only natural to see other companies tackle the same form factor even if they lack NFC capabilities, like Ubisoft with its wave of Kingdom Battle Rabbids.

Now one of Nintendo’s main competitors has gotten in on the game – Sony. The studio has announced the “Totaku Collection”, a series of interlocking figures that will pull first party characters like Sackboy and Kratos plus third party icons who are heavily associated with PlayStation, such as Crash Bandicoot. (UPDATE: It appears that Sony has licensed its characters out for this line and is not distributing them.)

GameSoul.it has several images, but you only need check out the box-art below to see just how amiibo-inspired they seem to be:

They definitely look like they’d be right at home alongside amiibo collections! The figures can be pre-ordered via GameStop in the US now ahead of their March release.

Always excited to see something a little bit different, Tom is ready to report on games of all shapes and sizes, whether they be wonderful or weird (or, better yet, both.) Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.

    Sony and Microsoft are not ‘announcing’ them. They just licensed their characters to a third party company for manufacturing. Sea Of Thieves figurine is coming soon https://twitter.com/VideojuegosGAME/status/954362193889386496

    That’s kind of cool. I’ll probably get… wait, GameStop? Pass. I refuse to do business with them after all being screwed multiple times.

    A quick note, these appear to be part of a venture led by ThinkGeek, GameStop’s sister company. I say this as the company is listed as publisher and developer.

    These don’t unlock anything in games so no they are not toy microtransactions you call Amiibo

    Meh. Sony doesn’t have the nostalgia heavy IPs to really make this work. Microsoft might be able to with their Rare properties… But Sega’s the only one that could really rival Amiibo.

    @Kirby Destroyer of Worlds, you’re kidding, right? Spyro? Crash? Parappa? Jak? Ratchet? Sly Cooper? Not as much nostalgia as Nintendo, but more than Rare with Banjo Kazooie and Conker.

    Meh, i’ll just stick with Amiibo. I’m not into Sony franchises enough to get these.

    So… these are just figurines… a concept from several decades ago… Sorry, but this article is really misleading.

    How the **** do these have anything to do with Amiibos? I watched the video, and they look like standard COLLECTABLE figures to me.

    Are you that inept of a jouranalist or that big of a ******* fanboy you can’t differentiate? Tom Brown, you do know Collectable figures have been around for AGES?
