Amiibo fans should head on over to the Nintendo Store or at least the UK fans anyway as some of the rarer figures have made a re-appearance on the list of in-stock items. Anybody who wants to collect Amiibo will be well aware of just how hard some of them are to get a hold on.
The rare Amiibo that are now in stock again are Wii Fit Trainer, Wario, Sonic, Ganondorf, Palutena, Zero Suit Samus, Dark Pit, Zelda, and Captain Falcon. Don’t take your time buying them though as they are likely to be limited in stock, and to sell out fast.
Nintendo have been quite shrewd with the selling of the Amiibo, tapping into the popularity of not only collecting figures but also the abilities that they give to players. Through limiting stock they can also make sure that the demand is greater than the supply which leads to a little price war between fans. Just by doing a search on Ebay you can see the proof of this.
In a move to stop bulk buying, which would probably result in them being sold again at higher prices restrictions on the Amiibo in the Nintendo Store are one character per customer, which appears to be a move to make the purchasing of the rare characters fair.
To be more fairer, it is arguable though that making enough of the figures in the first place would have been a better move. All that shortages cause is annoyance to people who are looking to buy them. Some of us may not care about the Amiibo but for those that do and are looking to complete a collection, it’s not an easy task.
What are your thoughts on the rare Amiibo becoming available once again? Will you be rushing to purchase them?
