Splatoon is set to roll out to Wii U’s on May 29th, alongside the release of three special Amiibo exclusive to the game. We got our hands on one of those Amiibo, the Inkling Boy to be specific. Below you’ll find a plethora of pictures of the figure, showcasing some of the fine work that went into its creation. It’s sort of an unboxing, but not really cause we rushed to get it open and had to put it back together for this piece. I’ll try to point out items of particular note in the images, and feel free to leave a comment with any questions about the figure or the game.
Some shots of the box, the design is great as usual. Those not wanting to remove the Amiibo from the package will have a great display piece.
This is really the best shot to see everything. I didn’t even notice the hair tie until looking at these images. The plastic on the gun and backpack are clear, allowing light to pass through and giving the figure a great look.
A better look at the detailing on the shoes and the gun, as well as the small etching on the bottom of the ink backpack.
Here you can really see the ink underneath the Amiibo’s shoe, tying it to the game very well.
A closer look at the clear plastics I mentioned earlier.
Finally an image of the back showing more of the great detail work, such as the red nozzle on the top of the backpack. Overall this is one of my favorite Amiibo so far, with fantastic details and a really unique look. Check back for more on Splatoon, including a video of exactly what the Amiibo do in the game, very soon.
