"Hopefully I'll get to stick him next to an official one soon... "
We've seen Nintendo fans use existing amiibos to create slightly different ones in the past, but rarely have we seen someone build one from scratch. That's exactly what artist Thomas Dulaney has done. It apparently took him "about 10 hours of work" all up to 3D print and paint this...

Buy it or don't, but it isn't surprising

The Skyward Sword Link amiibo? Forget it
The newly-revealed Zelda & Loftwing amiibo releasing alongside The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD is a thing of beauty, but its announcement has already endured its fair share of criticism. Yesterday, we found out that the figure will cost more than your average amiibo, retailing for $24.99 rather...
This flight is gonna cost you!
Yesterday, Nintendo announced a brand new Zelda & Loftwing amiibo for its upcoming release, Skyward Sword HD.

Who wore it better?
Last week saw the arrival of three brand new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate amiibo. For many, the highlight of the lot was the release of Banjo-Kazooie - you know, the Microsoft-owned character. While we think the overall design of this particular amiibo is already fantastic, Banjo's creator, Rare, has now gone one step further,...

Scalpers are at it again
It seems history is repeating itself - with the prices of Animal Crossing Sanrio Collaboration Card Packs surging online. Although reprints of this pack only arrived in certain regions last week, as spotted by Kotaku, scalpers are already demanding well beyond $100 USD for the six-dollar card packs. There are even bulk pack...

New Sanrio-themed items to decorate your lily pad
We knew that Sanrio goodies would be coming to Animal Crossing: New Horizons in March, alongside the Sanrio amiibo cards, and eagle-eyed readers may have even been able to identify the furniture pictured on each card. But now we can see how that furniture looks in-game - and there is finally some...

While we sort of already know what to expect from amiibo functionality in Nintendo Switch games nowadays, it's always nice to know exactly what will happen when they're scanned in a certain game. In the case of Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury, it's a game divided into two different adventures. To use an amiibo in Super Mario 3D...

A truly "limited" run
We've seen limited edition amiibo in the past, but these Monster Hunter Rise ones just might be the rarest ones yet. 7-Eleven convenience stores in Japan have unveiled this "limited" and "special edition" gold amiibo set, to celebrate the launch of Capcom's upcoming Nintendo Switch release. The catch - because there's always...

These ameowbo are pawfect
Before we get stuck into the news, we have some... questions about the anatomy going on here. Peach has her ears pierced... but instead of her earrings appearing on her cat-ears, they appear where her human-ears would be. What do you mean it's a costume? If it were just a costume, why would they be running around on all...

Are you feline it?
Announced during September's Super Mario 35th Anniversary Direct broadcast, it may have taken a few years, but one of the Wii U's finest titles is finally making its long-awaited leap to Switch.

One of the hardest amiibo to hunt down is back at the Nintendo Official UK Store, and we imagine stock will disappear again extremely quickly. Yes, you can currently get your hands on the Cloud and Cloud (Player 2) amiibo at the old RRP of £10.99. Both of these sold out very quickly after launching the first time around and have been...
