I'll be honest. Amiibos are more exciting when certain ones are very rare and hard to get. If they were all easily accessible and in stock, I doubt people would be as interested in them.

@DreamyViridi: I was able to walk into a Gamestop and pick up a Pac-Man yesterday, so yeah I'd say it's improving (it was their last one though, but they were nearly wiped out of amiibo stock in general - they didn't have Mario at all from either series). I think it's mostly a matter of people getting pissed off about the initial stock for each amiibo selling out, making it seem like Nintendo isn't doing anything about it. The restocks have been plentiful though.

They're selling out because they're popular. Sure you could say that Nintendo should have enough stock to more than meet demand, but there's two problems if/when that happens 1) they could be left with an excess of figures that no one wants, which is obviously undesirable for them 2) people would lose interest if they became plentiful, sure there's no excuse for them to be rare, but why make 1 million ROBs if only 1/10th of that will ever be sold, and who wants to see dozens of them stacking store shelves that no one wants, this will also damage their relationships with retailers, who are loving amiibo I'm sure especially with the store exclusive ones. Nintendo are improving, not quite there yet put I am a lot more happy about amiibo than I was particularly on the 29th February when I couldn't find a single wave 3 amiibo in 3 differnet GAME shops, which was the day of release. Though I still haven't seen a Rosalina, one I've wanted for a long time.

Given the recent restocks for UK, I'd say the rarest amiibo has changed from Rosalina to Villager.

After watching Ant Man with my grandfather today, we saw a Best Buy and went in to find Dark Pit. Big shock, he wasn't there. The store got 15 of him that went out in minutes...well, it's better than my local Gamestop only getting TWO Ness's, but there's still room for improvement.

There is nothing here...except for the stuff I just typed...

@DiscoGentleman: I don't think it's ridiculous at all. I think it would be cool to own all three of the colors. If the amiibo will bring you joy and you can afford them, then buy them! Why not, right?

Nintendo is getting a lot better at stocking amiibo where I live. When Dark Pit came out, all the Best Buys in my area had 45 of them available. I went to GS today to preorder the 3 pack, and they also had 40 preorders available. Good stuff.

Okay. I got the 3-pack. Everything's good.

I got one of the packs as well, they had around 25 left at the location I went to.

I'm guessing not, but is Jigglypuff rare at all? We went to this new bargain store that opened up in town recently, and they randomly had a shelf with like 10 Jigglypuff amiibo for $8 a piece. That was the only one they had, and I didn't care for that one so I didn't get any, I was just wondering how rare those are.

I would say Jigglypuff is sort of in the middle. When the wave with Jigglypuff was first released, people were literally knocking down doors to get it but I have since seen both JigglyPuff and Pac Man restocked at Target. I would not consider it that rare any more.

Just saw the game grumps unveiling the Shovel Knight Amiibo! Whoo!

I don't enjoy suffering alone. However, I don't mind making others suffer alone.
