Mewtwo amiibo

Mewtwo is one of the Pokémon series' most popular legendaries. A powerful psychic type with an interesting and rather tragic background, fans have come to revere the Genetic Pokemon. While Mewtwo was popular enough back in the early 2000's to earn itself a coveted slot on the roster of Super Smash Bros. Melee, it was “replaced" by Lucario when Super Smash Bros. Brawl came around, much to the chagrin of some fans. With Mewtwo's impending return to the series as DLC in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, one must ask the all important question: will there be an amiibo? The answer is yes, sort of.

Emerging from the depths of a “smoke-free, pet-free college dorm" comes this one of a kind Mewtwo amiibo. Crafted from an old Mewtwo toy, a gutted amiibo base and using the Mewtwo NFC chip from the limited Pokémon Rumble U range of NFC toys, this DIY amiibo looks surprisingly official. The seller even went to the lengths of creating a faithful representation of what a Mewtwo amiibo box would most likely look like. Up for auction right now on eBay, the toy has a little less than two days left and the bidding is already at over $250, at the time of writing.

It's important to note, for anyone that hasn't realised, that this won't function as an amiibo - it's simply a glorified Pokémon Rumble U toy, nothing more.

Though there's a good possibility that there will be an official amiibo when Mewtwo gets patched in this Spring, this is still a certainly unique alternative for those who just don't want to wait that long to get an interactive Mewtwo toy.

Will you be keen to pick up a real Mewtwo amiibo if Nintendo releases one?
