Amiibos since getting compatible with some of the popular Wii U games have been in huge demand, and due to this reason they have run out of stock rather quickly.
However, instead of restocking the markets with the popular figurines, the production system seems to have slowed down, as Amazon UK had to cancel the amiibo pre-orders due to shortages.
Amazon customer service department has apologized to the fans saying that supplier has informed them that the product is no longer available.
We regret to inform you that we have been unable to source the item. Our supplier has informed us that this item is no longer available. This item has now been cancelled and we can confirm that you have not been charged for it. Please accept our apologies for any disappointment or inconvenience caused.
Apart from amiibo figurines, GameCube controller adapter, standalone GameCube pad adapters and Smash Bros edition GameCube controllers have also got affected by the shortages.
With such a huge demand for all of these devices, it is hard to understand why Nintendo is not restocking the market. However, we are hoping that Nintendo will clarify the situation sooner rather than later.
Have you got your hands on any of the above mentioned devices or are you waiting for the re-stocking?
