Amiibo Nintendo

Today Is Amiibo’s One-Year Anniversary

For good or bad, today is the one year anniversary of Nintendo’s wildly addictive collectible figures. Launching November 21, 2014 (simultaneously with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U), the first figures released were Mario, Donkey Kong, Peach, Yoshi, Link, Samus, Villager, Kirby, Fox, Pikachu, Marth, and Wii Fitness Trainer. As many remember, the success of the figures were unprecedented, leading to Wii-like stocking problems that still feels reverberations today. From those humble beginnings, amiibo moved from 12 to 79 released amiibo (with 13 more on the way), 4 amiibo-Skylander crossovers, and 100 amiibo cards. Since then, Amiibo remains one of the largest money makers for Nintendo, especially in the past two years of limited success for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U sales. How many do you have in your collection?

  1. Mario, Link, Villager, Sonic, Mega Man, Shulk & Classic Color 8-bit Mario. Got a few more I need and some I want that aren’t out yet but honestly it doesn’t really seem like it’s been a year since I bought the first 3.

    1. If your looking for jigglypuff and don’t mind importing, here’s a link to get A JigglyPuff from japan for 12 dollars plus tax.
      ( http://www.play-asia.com/amiibo-super-smash-bros-series-figure-purin/13/708pul )
      Play asia does have the other amiibo youre looking for but at a much steeper price. However, they do go on sale from time to time for half off, so its good to check back every once in a while. Hoped I helped!

    I remember when amiibo released and I was at Target at 8AM and did not find the only amiibo I wanted. Lol.

    It’s Link. I got it because I wanted the Spinner in Hyrule Warriors and it came free if you bought Smash Wii U on launch day at (I think) Best Buy. I haven’t really had a need for anymore amiibo, but I almost got the Green Yarn Yoshi bundled with the game, although they happened to be out of it at the Target I went to for the “Buy 2 games, get 1” deal. (I got Final Fantasy X+X-2 HD for PS4 though, so at least there’s that.)

  10. I have every amiibo, except for gold Mario (the dumb Skylanders ones and amiibo cards don’t count). I even have two of many. I’m slowly but surely buying a second of each so I can open one and keep the other new. Sadly, amiibo has ruined my entire year, because I’ve been goiing broke with every wave. I can’t even buy Christmas gifts this year because of it.

    And even after a full year, people working in stores still act clueless when it comes to amiibo. Every time I ask about an amiibo, you can tell they know NOTHING about them. Some people sure are square.

  12. I’ve gotten all Smash amiibo released so far, the eight Super Mario series figures, the three regular Yarn Yoshis, the three Splatoon figures, and the 8-bit Super Mario Maker figure.

    Now I just need to wait patiently for Lucas, Roy, Ryu, Cloud, Wolf Link and Gold Mega Man.
