Popular online service Loot Crate has been delivering monthly boxes of geeky goodies for quite some time now, mailing a differently themed package straight to front doors on a subscription basis. While these collectibles are often gaming-related as is, Nintendo's recent partnership with the site aims to ensure that fans can get started on their amiibo collection without ever having to leave the house.
By signing up for an amiibo subscription service — you can see a list of eligible countries here — you can receive 10 pre-selected amiibo figurines separated out into three Loot Crate shipments, all just in time for the Holiday season. Hype has been building for Nintendo's latest venture as new forms of compatibility have been announced, making this delivery system a convenient way to get your hands on a select few without the hassle of checking stores.
So far Mario, Pikachu, Star Fox, Donkey Kong, and Yoshi have been announced as definite inclusions, with the remaining five to be revealed through Loot Crate soon. Further surprises have also been hinted at, directed towards Super Smash Bros. and amiibo fans in particular, so this could be a service to keep an eye on.
Right now you can join the waitlist by providing your email address on Loot Crate's amiibo page, and be among the first to know when further details are released, such as the price of this service.
