Even the Animal Crossing stuff sold out????
Gee, I can barely recall. There were also a few Yarn Yoshi Amiibo, and some other stuff as well, not just Mario and Splatoon. Ever since the Switch came out, accessories for the console started filling up the shelves, and the amount of Amiibo decreased. (Maybe most of them were sold, and/or were placed in the storage area)

It's amazing to see Nintendo acknowledges the custom amiibo scene, evidenced by this video by Nintendo Minute. I admit that I am not much of a modeller (and amiibo is not as cheap and readily available as in the other countries), so I can say that the craftsmen and craftswomen who redesign amiibo did splendid work.



Thank you for reading.

Those look awesome!

Despite I'm a Nintendo collector, I currently only have four amiibos, as I mainly collect consoles and (Mario-) games. Those are my Smash mains Ike and Mr. Game and Watch, the 8-Bit Mario which came with Mario Maker and a Diddy Kong from the Mario series, which I won after placing second in a Mario Kart tournament.
Yesterday, I preordered Odyssey and the Odyssey amiibo 3-pak, which was difficult, as both, especially the amiibos, were no longer available for preorders in lots of shops.

I remember buying my first Amiibo. I used to go to Intertoys every week to play on their Wii U kiosk. On the shelf, I saw a bunch of Amiibo including one of the rarest ones out there, Rosalina and Luma.

That's right, I finally bought it on New Year's Eve of 2016, using 16 euros my allowance. I still have the receipt and the box!




Can't believe I got one of the rarest Amiibo at retail price, and without having to order a Japanese import!

The amiibo may be rare in U.S., but is this amiibo rare in Europe as well?

I'm pretty sure nowadays, though, you can't exactly waltz into a store and find Rosalina and Luma, just the Super Mario series Rosalina if you're lucky.

I don't know about its rarity in Europe, but on ebay you can get her for 20 bucks, sometimes less, so that she doesn't seem to be that rare. However, I wonder how rare the Odyssey amiibos will be, especially the 3-pak... :D

Meh, usually something that goes for over recommended sale price, it usually means it's rare and in high demand. But again, there was amiibo that went for over 30 back in the days... actually I think some of the Breath of the Wild amiibo are insane. Those things flew off the shelves...

I'm hoping they won't be rare, but given how barren some of the amiibo shelves I've seen, I hope there will be a lot of the Odyssey amiibos. I won't be happy if I can't get my hands on Wedding Mario... Anyhow, I haven't seen massive demand for them, and I haven't heard of preorders for them drying up.

In my experience in the U.S., all three-packs have been obtainable at some point, though I think the Splatoon 3-pack used to be unavailable until a later restock made them available at all stores.

I'm at MediaMarkt posting this, and I'll show you what Amiibo they have.
The most stocked ones are the new :goomba: and :koopa: ones. There are also some Mario series Amiibo, Yoshi's Woolly World ones, one Super Smash Bros Link, one Kirby series Dedede Amiibo, and some Splatoon Amiibo (There were no Inkling Girl ones) Also one Chibi Robo and one Poochy in their bundles.
Even the Animal Crossing stuff sold out????
Yes, there's no Animal Crossing Amiibo left.

I got Wedding Mario and he's now happily with Smash Mario, Mario Mario, Silver Mario, Gold Mario, and modern-colored Retro Mario. And all the other non-amiibo Marios.

Hope we get more Mario plushies related to Odyssey in the future!

Today, I was at MediaMarkt. A majority of their Amiibo were the wedding ones, and the new Fire Emblem Amiibo.

I wonder if they're going to be sold out quickly, like the Zelda: Breath of the Wild Amiibo; because the employees told me that Odyssey was selling fast.

Speaking of which, I did see the Guardian amiibo and Link-on-a-horse amiibo at Gamestop. I hadn't seen those in a while.

I didn't even see the Fire Emblem amiibo, probably because they did a good job blending with their surroundings of other anime amiibo like Cloud and Corrin. ;] I also had a one-track mind of "must. get. fancy. mario." so maybe that's it too.

I really hope the wedding amiibo don't become rare, since I really wanted to get them when I picked up my game but didn't have any money (had the game payed off already)

I don't expect them to become rare right now, GameStop I went to had a nice amount. I picked up Wedding Mario without any hassle. I hope it won't turn like the Breath of the Wild amiibo, but again, United States is Link Nation, Link stuff is far more popular with what, the Smash Link amiibo being the best seller.

I also checked Amazon for Mario amiibo for curiosity's sake, and Smash Mario ran for $47, Gold Mario ran for $43.56, and Silver is $49 (normal price is $12.99).  :shifty:

After an Amiibo hunt, I finally picked up a 50% off Diddy Kong (Mario Party) Amiibo from an Intertoys sale, after going to 2 stores yesterday, and 2 stores today. :diddy:
