Trick your loved ones into thinking these Japanese McDonald's toys are amiibo


Look at you, angry Pikachu

Amiibo sure are all the rage, huh? Who would’ve thought that Nintendo’s artificially scarce plastic figurines would create such a crazed demand? Were you lucky enough to get one that looks just like Steven’s dog? If so, you’ll be rollin’ in the dough! Just don’t cut the tags off; then those dumb bears aren’t worth anything!

If you aren’t savvy enough to have flipped a defective amiibo for a wad of greenbacks, you probably can’t afford to buy new amiibo for all your loved ones. Fortunately, McDonald’s of Japan is giving away a bunch of Pokémontoys with Happy Meals that you can probably pass off as the real deal. The faux-amiibo that McDonald’s is releasing are Pikachu, Fennekin, Chespin, Lucario, Froakie, Mega Charizard, Dedenne, and Pancham.Coyly give this impostor of the highly coveted Nintendo figures to your stupid little cousin. He’ll be so pleased; what a sucker.

“How will I pay for a plane ticket to Japan when I can’t spring $13 for legit amiibo,” you ask? Hey man, I’m just here to make sure we fulfill our mandatory quota of an amiibo post every six hours, not to figure out the logistics of your life.
