I am going to show you how to do something I just now figured out how to do. Open your Amiibo box and still keep the box pretty. I am writing this blog because I could not find any tutorial blogs for alternate ways to open Amiibo boxes other than ripping them apart here on MFC.

I will be demonstrating this on what may be, no, IS the best Amiibo ever.
Wolf Link & Midna for The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD.

The process is very simple. Get an Exacto Knife and cut around the plastic casing. Cut the top and sides, but leave the bottom uncut.

Keep the cut along the end of where the plastic meets the area bonded to the cardboard. Do not cut the frame where the plastic is glued to the cardboard. Keep the knife just above it.

If done correctly your box should be doing this.
The cardboard sheet should open like so.

This allows the Amiibo to be easily removed and put back inside should you choose to do so.

You can now use your Amiibo and your box is still in displayable condition.

And that is how to open an Amiibo without destroying the box. There is no way to take an Amiibo out of its box without causing damage to the box. Its box design has the unfortunate "meant to be ripped open" design commonly seen with children's toys. But at least this way the box still looks pretty.

Now if you will excuse me, I am going to spend the next two days playing this game. Nostalgia, here I come! :D

gumonshoeIl y a 4 ans#7221010why not cut a flap just from the bottom and slide it out? should display better--i can still see the jagged cuts in your picture, and i imagine it can be a hassle to align it perfectly and prevent it from shifting out of place. i like Paulichu's suggestion--that would be the cleanest opening if it works. I will give that a try with my next Amiibo and see how that works out. :)

YanderechiiIl y a 4 ans#7195005I cut my Amiibo boxes the opposite way by cutting The bottom and The sides. I was going to do that too, but then I noticed something interesting about Amiibo boxes. If you check the underside of the plastic casing, you will see that the bottom has a series of dotted holes, making a hinge when the top and sides are cut like in this tutorial. It is as if the box was intentionally designed for people to attempt this method in the tutorial. It's almost like Nintendo is saying "let's see if they can figure this out. We can give them puzzles outside of Zelda games."

LovelyIdiotIl y a 4 ans#7195554I like your taste in amiibo. Wolf Link IS the best amiibo ever, I can't wait to get mine. It almost makes up for not having the one by First4Figures. ITEM #55550
........Almost. :P

I've seen folks going into rage mode if you even open the amiibo box.. Even more in absolute furious rage mode if you just rip it apart. Sadly, I can't find the according youtube video anymore, it was so full with hilarious comments about it.

I did this with my first amiibos, then I just realized I didn't have the patience for it anymore and started ripping up the boxes.

I ripped mine open on the bottom. The Amiibo paper was ruined in the process, but the backing survived - which is all I care about lol.

So I haven't seen anyone do this in forever... but you can also take a hair dryer to it and it'll heat the glue up enough to let the packaging separate.

I haven't tested it on Amiibo's. None of ours are open yet as we don't actually have anything to play them on at the moment XD, but it's an old trick that should work, unless the glue they use now is no longer heat activated in any way.
