    Wow. And Infinity and Skylander's figures have way better packaging.

    Wow, this is beyond worrying. Nintendo doesn't usually have widespread quality issues like these. Not only are amiibo different looking to the ones they revealed at E3, the quality control seems very off. I still don't get paying high sums of money for defects.

    You should sooner question the stores themselves. When in transit, some figures are bound to get squashed and you don't stock those - you return them.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    if there are lot of figurines like that i doubt it will reach that high.. specially when the problem is most likely from the bad shipping..

    I got 4 shipped, and they had flawless quality. The packaging itself looks very solid, very much plastic around it. If it wasn't badly packaged at the factory, I don't think they can break. Just look at that Wii Fit Trainer amiibo, she isn't even inside her inner case. She can't just slip out of that through shipping.

    the shops where those are at should be ashamed of themselves for trying to sell them! if a product is damaged in transit for whatever reason you don't put it on the damn shelf!

    Dang, I hoped these were taken back in the stock, not in the shop surface. Lol.

    They're just defects due to the employee who put them together messed it up or the transportation broke them up and so there really is no reason to pay absurd amounts for what someone else broke.
