amiibo Crate: Final Week

Nintendo amiibo lootcrate last week 3

My amiibo crate came in last night, just in time for the holidays!  This is the third and last week of the amiibo lootcrate.

Inside has wave 2 amiibo: Luigi and Zelda. These amiibo were released just earlier this month.

The exclusive included with these amiibo is a New Challenger Approaching!T-shirt with the week 3 pamphlet. Now this sounds pretty awesome except for the part where this t-shirt is like a generic copy of the original promotional shirt given out at the Super Smash Brothers Tournaments and launch event.

Let’s compare the shirts, shall we

The front with color differences where the original is a more bold, orange color. The other one is a more dull color with a bigger logo.

The back is probably my least favorite part because the new logo is choppy and the colors are slightly off.

The shirts are from different companies, tultex and RockMe. The tultex is made in Mexico with 100% ringspun cotton, whereas RockMe is made Bangladesh with 100% cotton.

The right side of the shirts are more or less the same with a Nintendo logo. Just the right logo has a registered trademark symbol.

Now my only real complaint is on the back. There is again the choppy logo. Furthermore, (you might want to raise the brightness on your device) you can see a light frame around the logo from when the logo was being transferred onto the shirt. On the bright side, this shirt feels softer but thinner than the original promotional shirt. Overall, this t-shirt is still the amiibo crate exclusive item. Did anyone else have the same problem with their shirts?
