You're a star

Shigeru Miyamoto has revealed to IGN that Nintendo is currently experimenting with the idea of a transformable Awring amiibo which could have some connectivity with the forthcoming Star Fox Zero.

The legendary designer was pushed for details by the site, and explained that although Nintendo has its hands full keeping up with the intense demand, it continues to tinker with various new concepts - including an Arwing which morphs into a walker:

I'm sure you're aware of the amiibo shortage situation, even with the back orders and repeat orders. We kind of have our hands full. Earlier, we talked about how the 3D model of the Arwing will actually transform [into a two-legged Walker] in the game. We have an actual model and we're thinking how much it would actually cost to make when it's transformable. Can we actually do that? We're thinking about a lot of different things right now.

We've already seen Skylanders Superchargers offering figures which can be switched between amiibo and Skylander modes - perhaps a transformable amiibo could be the next step?
