    hi everyone

    just bought a palutena amiibo because it was the only one i've seen in any shop of my city. I've been googling a bit and it seems that it's going to be an unicorn one, so what should i do? do i wait to sell it?

    An unicorn amiibo is meant to be an extremely rare one xDDDD

    So what you're saying is that the Palutena's amiibo you own is actually a unicorn toy? x_x

    It'd be useful if you could post a photo.

    An unicorn amiibo? Man...I bet these things come in all colors of the rainbow...

    Jokes aside, the Shulk Amiibo got a re-run, but is still sold out everywhere and people STILL are selling it for $40 on ebay. So, if Palutena really is an unicorn, it will probably be valuable even months from now.

    My personal advice: please don´t do that, if you want to sell, sell for a reasonable price. You got lucky to find it in a store for $12.99 and maybe you don´t want it, but there´s no reason to try to make someone pay 4 times it´s value. I collect only the characters I like and I´m already tired of every Amiibo being labeled as "rare" and overpriced as soon as it launches. I bet you would be pissed if you were looking for a product and only scalpers had it.

    Who the hell thought it was a good idea to switch the word "rare" with "unicorn"? Not only is the word longer but it doesn't even mean the same thing, it just confuses people. Idiots.

    If I´m not mistaken, the categories are: common, semi-rare, rare and unicorn. Unicorn would be those Amiibos that are said to exist, but many people never saw, like Rosalina.

    Yeah, it´s an idiot system, but this is the internet.

    He probably meant to say "rare" or "unique". One of the mistranslations that happens from Spanish to English.

    Maybe he thought of using 'único' and the auto-translator turned it to 'unicorn'. lol

    I had thought you stumbled across a rare Palutena-unicorn amiibo which happen to have her as a, well.. a unicorn. Those Japanese, squids and hentai got me thinking of the possibilities. lol

    Nintendo Store of UK only ships within UK, IIRC.

    My ZSS, Palutena, Dark Pit and others are still yet to be dispatched by Zavvi (also from The Hut Group which Nintendo Store is part of, as well as The Hut).

    I hate Palutena's derpy face and her hands... The hands are a tad too big. Maybe it was for some 'hand job' that requires big hands. lol

    What the hell is this about?

    amiibos that were once rare and expensive tend to appear every now and then for its SRP. Just not Gold Mario amiibo but fuck it, it's just a sprayed in gold plastic figure. No big deal.

    Mostly me being silly, I dislike the whole "unicorn" rarity, so I put down an extensive list.
