We've rather enjoyed the saga of the dual wielding Samus amiibo here on Nintendo Life, even if it has prompted opportunists to employ a little photoshop manipulation to figures — hello, Brown Yoshi — to seek attention. Last week we reported on the fact that it had popped up on eBay and reached an eye-watering $1000 bid with three days to go. Madness! Craziness! Well, that was only the beginning.
Bidding on the unique amiibo above has now closed and, incredibly, the bidding closed at $2500. That's enough to buy about nine Wii U systems or a slightly dodgy car, but has been spent on one amiibo which will, no doubt, remain sealed. We'd like to think it'll be locked away in a high-tech vault that requires two keyholders and a retinal scan just to see it, but we may be getting carried away.
Will the winning bidder actually pay? Will they have a panic-attack when they realise they've spent $2500 on a small NFC figure? That, dear reader, we may never know.
