Let the hunt begin! The latest round of figures from Nintendo has just released and we’re here to bring you a roundup on what just dropped. This is a really tough Amiibo drop, since a lot of the big retailers have exclusive figures (Gamestop, Target, Toy’s R Us), meaning the hunt to grab the whole series will be fierce. On top of that the frenzy surrounding wave 4 has made it really hard to pick up select figures, so if you were hoping to add that silver Mario Amiibo to your roster you might be out of luck until the next re-stock. It’s getting silly at this point. We’re also seeing that the triple figure Splatoon pack has sold out in most places as well, so they might require a few trips to different local stores to pick up for now. We’ll be on the lookout for any good Amiibo deals, if you find any though be sure to “submit a steal” so we can share it with everyone else!
- Amiibo Wave 4 Figures Include:
- Silver Mario
- Ness (Gamestop Exclusive)
- JigglyPuff (Target Exclusive)
- Greninja (Toy’s R Us Exclusive)
- Inkling Boy
- Inkling Girl
- Inkling Squid (part of the 3-pack)
If you’re new to the Amiibo world and are wondering what the big deal is, here’s the short version. Nintendo has a line of figures based on characters from their games, these figures can be scanned into the wii u similar to how Disney Infinity and Skylander figures work. The base however is built into the Wii U controller. Check back next week for our comprehensive Amiibo starters guide that will give you all the info you need to jump into this seriously addictive collectors hobby. Or at the very least keep you in the know when your kids start ranting about how they need Charizard in their life. In the meantime, you can check out the round up of wave 4 figures below. That silver mario is so shiny…must have the shiny.
