    What is the world coming too. I know games are fun and amiibos are rare but there is no need to resort on stealing a truck for them, as if amiibo shortages weren't enough.

    I feel sorry for those that won't be receiving what they pre-ordered. Damn thieves. You just had to steal their happiness too.

    A truck full of cabbage or coathangers would be better value. I feel sorry for the guys who jacked that truck, maybe next time they'll actually plan it out and hit something of value instead. A bunch of copies of a shit game, and crappy amiibos for the former. Ouch. Definitely not worth the risk.

    Though knowing Nintenyearolds the Amiibo price probably is high enough to buy the thieves some fast food for a little while.

    Why are you all so sure that its about the Amiibo or the games?

    well for one, trucks are expensive on their own.
    also, considering we're talking about criminals here, they might need it for an actual heist. there's a medium chance they went for the videogame one as a diversion. you know, like in the Die Hard movies.
