Amiibo: new stock on the way says Nintendo

Mario Amiibo at

As so often happens, Nintendo has quietly delivered a phenomenon in the shape of Amiibo. The charming collectable figures use near-field communication technology to interact with Wii U and 3DS games, and have proven to be a massive hit.

So much of a hit, in fact, that many of the original line-up and even some pre-orders of the new lines due to arrive in early 2015 have already sold out.

If you're itching to complete – or just start – your collection, don't panic. Nintendo is aware of the demand. “Nintendo of Europe would like to confirm that supplies of Amiibo are currently available in the European market. Amiibo have been very popular at launch and as such its always possible that a few retailers may have sold out,” said a spokesperson. “We are continually aiming to always have a regular supply of Amiibo brought into the marketplace and there are many waves of Amiibo to come.”

The popularity of the figures has resulted in some eye-popping auction prices. A production error resulted in a Samus Aran figure with two gun pods, and that sold for $2500 online. A misprinted legless version of Princess Peach, meanwhile, went for a staggering $25000. You'll find the prices for normal Amiibo at GAME much easier to swallow.
