There have been some rumor's going around the past couple of days that certain Amiibo figures, although only being on the market for a couple of weeks, had already been discontinued. I first learned of the news from temper Soulx, who shared with me this tweet from a local gaming shop. At first I was skeptical, until coming across a recent article from gamespot getting official confirmation of the cancellation. Source Prices for the 3 Amiibo's listed above have already skyrocketed, from the initial $12.99 MSRP, to as high as $60-70 online on Ebay and Amazon.com. If you plan on purchasing Amiibo's, but are curious as to which ones may disappear sooner rather than later, I actually have some strategic news for you. There are obvious reasons why certain amiibo's have sold out faster over others. Let's take a look at the Amiibo's listed above.Marth, a fire emblem character that has next to no merchandise associated with it other than about 2 existing figures made by Figma. Villager, from a popular Nintendo franchise that has never had a figure release other than the Isabelle Nendoroid by goodsmile. And Wii Fit Trainer, which has next to no existing merchandise connected to the franchise. As you can see, franchises that typically have no recognition will typically be the first ones to fly off the shelf, whereas the heavy hitters will most likely stick around for the duration of their lifespan. So if you plan on picking up anything from Amiibo Wave 2, which launches this Decemer 14th, and consists of Zelda, Little Mac, Captain Falcon, Luigi, Pit, and Diddy Kong, you may want to focus on grabbing a Falcon, Little Mac, and Pit, as merchandise for those specific characters is sparse. Amiibo Wave 3 will launch in February 2015, and will be the first wave to include retail exclusive Amiibo's, which include the following:Shulk - Gamestop ExclusiveMetaKnight - Best Buy ExclusiveLucario - Toys R Us exclusive Also reportedly, the Lucario Pre-order is already sold out. Source All retailers for wave 3 will also include Bowser, Toon Link, Shiek, Ike, King DeeDeeDee, Sonic, and MegaMan. So what effect does this news take on anyone here? Do the Amiibo's play any significance in your life, or are you a scalper looking to make some bank off a Nintendo fans need for collectible figures? PPOTW - Got amiibo?
