    There's been a bunch of re-releases of the more recent Smash amiibo like Isabelle, K. Rool, Piranha Plant, Dark Samus and the like.

    I think Wii Fit Trainer went on sale at some places for $10, which is just mind-boggling for those who lived through the crunch times.

    I almost bought the Wii Fit Trainer because I remember there was a massive demand for it. But I would just be adding to my clutter... What was it used for and why was it in such demand?

    Smash Bros., and the same reason people went apeshit over toilet paper when there was a brief supply disruption.

    Wii Fit Trainer in particular had a very small run and was one of the first, if not the first, Smash Amiibo to become impossible to find in stores.

    Oddly enough the first, and for a long while only, Amiibo I bought. She’s my main in Smash, and I think her mere existence is amazing. Saw her on a peg at Best Buy way back when and never looked back.

    AC amiibo did haunt the clearance bin... but can you imagine if they did a second wave NOW? Imagine how much money a Raymond amiibo would make.

    It baffles me that they don't re-launch the cards (outside of the obvious global pandemic thingy making that a little hard). They are going for stupid amounts on ebay right now

    The Smash Bros. rumor mill is flying right now, as Squirtle suddenly disappeared from Nintendo's alphabetical list of Smash amiibo and was replaced with a blank "coming soon" button.

    The error was fixed quickly, but not before people started assuming a new Smash character with a name starting with S or T will be revealed. What seems to be more likely is that they're preparing to finally release Amiibo of the first round of Smash DLC -- Terry would easily fit in that slot, after all. And we were promised an Arms Smash reveal for June, so maybe we'll get Amiibo news too.

    Finally, two more Smash amiibo -- Joker and Hero are coming this fall.

    But Sakurai implied they might not do amiibo for all the DLC fighters?

    I assume physical mass-production might be a bit up in the air, so they don't want to commit.

    What characters are missing? I'm not super familiar with DLC. Banjo/Kazooie, Byleth, and Minmin. Who else?

    Fatal Fury's Terry.

    Physical production of a toy takes a long time from start to finish, with prototyping, approvals, securing the manufacturing facility, etc. Given Nintendo wanted to prevent leaks I'm guessing the DLC Amiibo weren't even designed until after they were revealed.

    I want the DLC to stop so I can just have a complete amiibo collection of my smash line!

    I am so happy I just randomly found Isabelle last weekend.

    I think the only Smash character I don't have some kind of amiibo for is the Villager. I should've grabbed him when he was on clearance at my local TRU, but they had SO MANY that I didn't think it would be a big deal.

    Preordered them, my kids would never let me now get them. They love cat mario and peach.

    No cat Toad, Luigi, or Rosalina is a criminal crime, though.

    I imagine they'll have some functionality with Age of Calamity.

    Nice! When are they going to re-release the Guardian is what I would like to know. I mean I already broke down and bought the Japanese re-release, but I would like to have the packaging match this set.

    I'll be curious to see what functionality this has with amiibo.

    Maybe owning every LoZ amiibo will be beneficial here. :lol:

    EDIT: Or maybe it'll just be "refill your hearts once every 24 hours, can only use one amiibo a day." :rotate:

    Hyrule Warriors would give you themed weapons and boosts and crafting items and the like. I think the only thing that was amiibo-only was the original Wii U version granting Epona, and that was removed or changed in later versions?

    Aw man. Took this thread updating to take the time to pre-order the latest Amiibo, and Best buy currently has Cat Peach out of stock for pre-orders. I'm not surprised, but I kinda sad?

    I need to add to my Amiibo tower!

    Well, between Cat Mario/Peach and the BotW re-releases, I'm getting my hopes up for more Smash amiibo despite Sakurai's note of caution.

    Ah, I figured it would sell out because it looks cute for those who never played MH. Guessing for the game the other two would be probably good pick ups.
