Now that the Monster Hunter Ascension: Sunbreak expansion is finally available to play, the new Malzeno amiibo has also reached shop shelves. I got mine from the Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak Collector’due south Edition, which is sold exclusively by GameStop, and information technology’s one of the virtually impressive and detailed amiibo figures to release thus far. Additionally, due to those alpine wings and that long tail, it’s super alpine. In my whole collection, I simply own one amiibo that’s taller than it. This is ane of the
amiibo figurines Nintendo has produced.

The Malzeno amiibo is in short supply in the U.South. This was too the example when the Palamute, Palico, and Maganamalo figures showtime released in 2021.

After pulling Malzeno out of the Monster Hunter Ascension: Sunbreak Collector’s Edition box, I was immediately impressed by its detail and the overall size, so I decided to compare Malzeno side-by-side with all 78 amiibo that I own. I was merely able to find that one of my amiibo — Super Smash Bros Pit — was taller. Admittedly, my 78 figurines are merely a drib in the bucket compared to the 210+ amiibo figures out there, only information technology’due south still larger than about. It’southward an official big boi.

At that place are some notable exceptions, but well-nigh of the amiibo figures Nintendo has made are betwixt 2 to three.5 inches in diameter. Some can be decently larger than average, then at that place are some specialty amiibo that are much bigger. I measured my Malzeno at well-nigh 4.1 inches tall and four.5 inches long at its widest length, making it a larger NFC collectible. Even the Magnamalo amiibo from the base of operations Monster Hunter Ascent game only measures iii.7 inches tall and 4.iii inches wide, so information technology’s shorter and slightly less lengthy than Malzeno.

I actually can’t get over how good this amiibo looks. Malzeno’s menacing pose, forth with all of the details in its scales and claws, make this i of the most impressive figures in my collection. If you’re a Monster Hunter fan or an amiibo collector yous’ll definitely want to effort to get one. But note that they are in short supply, especially in the U.Due south., and so that could prove to be difficult.

What is the biggest amiibo anyway?

In case y’all’re curious, the title of biggest amiibo is held by three specialty collectibles. The absolute biggest is the Super Mario Cereal box, which has an NFC chip in its paper-thin base of operations. Meanwhile, the largest character amiibo is Mega Yarn Yoshi, which is like a modest stuffed beast rather than a figurine, and measures at almost 8.26 inches alpine and 5.nine inches wide.

However, the largest amiibo figurine of all is the Detective Pikachu amiibo, which stands at 5.3 inches tall and 3.26 inches broad. So compared to these collectibles, Malzeno’s 4.1-inch top seems a flake pocket-sized.

I don’t actually own the Mega Yarn Yoshi nor Detective Pikachu myself since I was late to the amiibo collecting game. Both of these collectibles are now rare and expensive amiibo, selling significantly more than their initial MSRP; Yoshi goes for over $200 while Detective Pikachu goes for $60 or higher. Nonetheless, our own Nadine Dornieden owns the Mega Yarn Yoshi and was kind enough to include a size comparison against Magnamalo to show just how big this stuffed animal amiibo is. You lot tin can meet information technology above.

Information technology might be hard to get ahold of, but the Malzeno amiibo is actually one of the nigh impressive NFC figurines Nintendo has ever made. While not the biggest amiibo of all time, those large wings and tail help make it 1 of the larger amiibo out there. You’ll desire to brand sure y’all have plenty space to testify information technology off in all its glory if you do make up one’s mind to grab 1.
