I don’t think anyone knew how popular Nintendo’s Amiibos would be when they were launched last year shortly after the release of Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U. However, like Pokemon cards Amiibos took the world by storm and fans and collectors scooping them up.
Every time a new series of figures is released they almost instantly sell-out. Nintendo has been accused of keeping supply low to ramp up demand for the figures, with Nintendo countering that they didn’t realize how popular these figures would be but have promised to ramp up production.
The first series of Amiibos have popped up back in stores recently and Nintendo announced via their facebook page that some popular Amiibos will be getting a re-release with the following characters, Little Mac, Greninja, Shulk, Lucario, Fox, and Captain Falcon.
I’m a huge fan of Amiibos but I don’t need to collect them all but I will be on the look out for Little Mac and Fox for sure at my local retailers.
