As I just said, the Bowser Amiibo will show you locations of the regional coins. It creates a glowing purple ring somewhere on the level. You still have to go out and find the spot where the coins are, and the coins do not show up on the map. Admittedly I've still had to use guides on Youtube to find some of the regional coins that are tucked and hidden away in certain parts of the level. Still this Amiibo is a helpful tool. You can scan the Bowser Amiibo as many times as you'd like. Once you locate coins shown to you by the Amiibo, when you use it again, a new glowing purple ring will show up in another section of the level.
The Amiibo itself is really well made. Bowser is actually heavy, and there is varying textures on his skin, spike shell, and wedding suit. I have 3 Zelda Super Smash Bros Amiibos that I had to pay double the price for since only Japanese imports were available to buy, which is typical with lots of other Amiibos unfortunately. This Bowser one is of a much better quality, and it's nice to be able to pay the normal/list price for it.
I don't see myself buying the Peach or Mario Amiibos, although it would be amusing to get the Peach Amiibo just to be able to put Mario in a wedding dress, lol.
The other in-game benefit is that you get a special surprise for scanning him in for the first time. When you scan him with the Amiibo character in-game for the first time, you will receive a costume for Mario that looks hilarious and awesome at the same time! I won't spoil it for anyone (although the rest of the internet probably has already). He is worth it for the costume and the benefits in-game as well.
This Amiibo also looks amazing. The detail is great and I can't stop looking at it. Be warned, though, this Amiibo is gigantic! I only have the Smash Bros Villager Amiibo besides this new one and it is about double to triple the size and weight. It is a very bulky Amiibo, but that isn't a bad thing at all.
Overall, I am really impressed with this guy. This is only my second Amiibo (as I mentioned earlier, I bought the Smash Bros Villager), but it has encouraged me to buy more. I will be getting more Amiibo in the future for sure and I recommend this Amiibo to anyone playing Mario Odyssey (get it early on in the game because I barely got to use him since I played too much of the game before ordering).
I originally intended to just get this amiibo but now I'm tempted by the other two in the series.
