During E3 this year we got to see a lot more of Super Mario Odyssey and Metroid: Samus Returns for 3DS was revealed too. While these games both look absolutely amazing to play, there are also a range of amiibo which will look great on your shelf and offer functionality within the games, too.
Amazon.de have recently listed pre-orders for all of these lovely new amiibo, so you can secure yours now before the scalpers grab them all up. They should ship to the UK and the US, of course.
We will be updating this guide when Amazon UK and US make their own regional pre-order pages live of course.
Please note that some external links on this page are affiliate links, which means if you click them and make a purchase we may receive a small percentage of the sale. Please read our FTC Disclosure for more information.
Let us know if you managed to pre-order one or more of these lovely amiibo with a comment below.
The mario is the best looking amiibo
I think I will hold off until the UK pre-orders start. Given Mario is their big hit this year I can imagine plenty of stock. Metroid is a tougher call to make but I will hold out for that as well
I definitely want these Metroid amiibo, but I'll wait until the Nintendo UK Store opens their pre-orders.
No way at €20. Isn't the RRP £10.99/€12.99?
Why do amiibos cost about 5 euros more than before? Bcuz they are less popular now and has to make enough money from those who still collect once in a while? The metroid once are actually tempting me again.
@SLIGEACH_EIRE It is in the UK. This is Amazon.DE
2 amiibos at that price is actually a full retail 3ds game or a switch game with a good deal. The amiibos are really off-turning atm with the new price-standard, and most ammibos only offer something for like 1 game, l99k at cloud or bayonetta or any other 3rd party amiibo. Only 1st party amiibos offer more than for 1 game, and then mainly the super mario ones
How can we worry about scalpers when Amazon are trying to rip you off. Just wait until there are on Nintendo UK store.
These prices are like buying from scalpers
I have the Metroid ones ordered already. Mario I don't care much about, just not interested with him and Bowser in wedding suits or whatever, haha.
If only they made one with Bowser in his Koopa Clown Car
@SLIGEACH_EIRE I've noticed the price of newer amiibo has been rising. You'll see quite a few places online charging £15 and €20 for them. Nintendo are producing such limited quantities that they're gone before you know it. It's kind of gone back to the scalping situation that was a plague at the start. I've noticed a lot of shops getting rid of amiibo. Here in Ireland Smyths and Argos don't sell them anymore. The only place left is Gamestop and they only get some of the newer ones in tiny quantities but you have to pre-order.
The prices are probably just placeholders... I believe that's the most expensive a regular amiibo has ever been (the BoTW Guardian amiibo)... which they're probably just using as a precaution until they get official confirmation of the price... at which point their preorder price guarantee will lower the price for anyone who had already preordered.
Game stores in Finland at least are selling amiibos for €20-€30 as new. I've been refreshing the listings of several stores for a while now and saw one have the price set for the Metroid amiibos at €29.90 before pre-orders even begun.
The problem is that Nintendo makes the amiibos in such short quantities that the pre-orders sell out within a day if not in hours. I've experienced cases where I was left out with some amiibos because of low stock even though I had pre-ordered them the day the pre-orders went live. So as the stocks are low and the stores know people are going to buy them no matter what, they can ask for ridiculous amounts of money for the figures.
This is a problem Nintendo needs to adress.
Hey, where is Wedding Princess Peach amiibo ?
Probably sold out
The link for Peach
At least i got these preordered. Tried today to put the stupid metroid legacy edition into my cart, but it just didnt work. Grrr.
Edit: didnt see it was a ref link. Just copied it from comments on a different site. Deleted the ref part now.
@Anti-Matter "Hey, where is Wedding Princess Peach amiibo ?"
It's tradition for the bride to be late to her own wedding.
What is a Gumba amiibo?
I'm only concerned with how these will affect gameplay, re: Metroid 4 and Odyssey. If they are anything like the Zelda amiibo in BOTW I guess I'll be stocking up on NFC cards again. Mwahaha.
Thanks, was looking for a preorder everyday since E3 and was getting worried since GameStop is unfashionably late with opening preorders for them. Poor dad's wallet will be howling in pain, though.
Slow down Nintendolife. At least say this is for amazon German.
Might as well wait for Nintendo UK Store to announce the pre-order. They are usually pretty good.
@Alundra-1998 Gumba is the German name for Goomba.
Still a few short of my smash collection. I wouldn't mind a restock of a the rare ones first!
I'm expecting these to be £14.99 rrp when they are put up for pre-order on the UK Nintendo store as they look pretty detailed.
Phew! Thought this was UK listing. The article says 11:30 but only just saw it on Twitter; never popped up on my website visit.
Really want those Metroid ones.
Already got the Bowser, Metroid 2-pack, both versions of Cloud and all the Champions pre ordered. Life is good when you're not cheap or poor. 😂
Well I just want the freakin metroid legacy edition but no pre orders nowhere so far at least in Europe :3
I already had all these amiibos (plus the BOTW champion amiibos) preordered since soon after they were announced at E3.
@Hobbesyall Some stores in germany already allowed preorders. But they are gone basically immediatly.
Amazon had the preorder button up for a few minutes this morning .
@Wichtel Here in Portugal the retailers are still not taking pre orders ! Not even amazon.es
@Proust It's hell to get an hold on Nintendo stuff I got fire emblem echoes special edition but it was a fluke
So when the title says "be quick and grab" it really means put in a pre-order b/c these aren't out yet? That is one weird way to phrase a title for placing a pre-order.
Lol I'm just gonna wait until retail
I can't wait to get that squishy Metroid amiibo.
Nintendo has the potential to create so many different types of Mario Odyssey amiibo thanks to all the costumes and Cappy's "capture" ability.
That Bowser Amiibo looks like he's trying to make you an offer you can't refuse...
Already got my Metroid Amiibo order in on announcement week. Can't resist squishy Amiibo. And it's Metroid. If ever I have a sudden emergency need of half a million dollars, my squishy Metroid will be there for me....
20 Euros? That's terribly overpriced.
One day Nintendo will bother to make enough of these things so that everyone who wants them can buy
@roro26 You can edit your own comments.
I will just try to get lucky and get some near here if I am interested.
In Australia, it's not too bad with amiibo right now. I don't feel any need to preorder any of them because I'm pretty sure they will be on store shelves at a better price eventually. the Metroid amiibos will probably be useful for Metroid Prime when it comes out so there will be continuous stock, Mario ones could be a bit rare but I'll take the gamble, and Goomba and Koopa amiibos are definitely not going to sell out.
I got my metroid amiibo already. To bad I can't find a good way to fix my L and R buttons or get a new 3ds xl
Metroids are gone. Mario's are still available to order on amazon.de
I got my metroids! I would imagine, like most things on Amazon the prices will go up and down between now and release, so most likely they all won't be €19.99 each on release.
