So near, so far

Not so long ago, we reported that Splatoon amiibo orders were cancelled in the UK due to an entire truckful of the blighters being stolen.

Just when you thought that things couldn't get any worse in the world of amiibo collecting, we're now hearing reports from France that retailers are cancelling orders because of "destroyed" stock.

The idea of stock being willfully destroyed is an odd one, but détruit can also mean "spoiled" or "damaged", which seems more likely. It sounds like there was an issue with the Yoshi amiibo shipment - they could have become damaged or ruined during transit - and as a result, orders are being cancelled.

Nintendo France has yet to comment on this news - we'll update this post if and when they do.

Thanks to MC Augstkalns for the tip!
