It looks like some Targets are selling the Sheik amiibo early

As of right now, the Sheik amiibo is set to appear in the first round of Wave 3 on February 13, right after Bowser's launch at the start of next month. If early reports are any indication, Sheik is going to be one of the more...

Toys"R"Us started selling some of the "wave 3" amiibo -- Bowser, Sheik, and Toon Link -- ahead of schedule at the end of last week. Meanwhile, Toys"R"Us customers have been getting notice that pre-orders on other wave 3 ...

Here's when GameStop is planning on getting shipments for amiibo Wave 3

There's an internal memo going around from GameStop that highlights estimated arrival dates for the upcoming amiibo Wave 3. I have confirmed this memo with an internal source at the retailer. This is the gist. Bowser will arr...

The Etsy crowd is making some great custom amiibo

We post a lot of amiibo stuff on Destructoid, and when I say we, I mean "not me." That ends today. I couldn't pass up this chance to highlight the custom amiibo scene on Etsy. The results are admittedly hit or miss -- this is Etsy -- but even the misses have a certain humorous charm to them. Let's take a look. [Header image: Alltheapplesdoubled]

Target to close all 133 stores in Canada, where the Rosalina amiibo is exclusive

Things haven't been looking good for Nintendo and its retailer-exclusive amiibo initiative. Toys"R"Us has bungled pre-orders so many times it's hard to tell if anyone will actually get their  Lucario amiibo at this point...

Here are all the amiibo waves and figures we know about

[Update: the list has been updated to include Wave 4. In regards to Marth, see this bit of news.] The amiibo figures out today, and in some locations, they're selling out. While Villager and Wii Fit Trainer seem to be two of...

My desk craves this game-inspired Predator 2 figure

I'm still kicking myself for missing NECA's glow-in-the-dark Jason Voorhees figure based on his loud design in Friday the 13th for the NES. It was exclusive to San Diego Comic-Con, and I should've had a friend nab one for me....

This custom bad box art Mega Man figure looks like Patrick Warburton

Bad box art Mega Man is a legend. In addition to being featured in Street Fighter X Tekken among other accomplishments, my mom picked the original Mega Man out for me because of the cover art, and the rest is histor...

These Assassin's Creed Mega Bloks were 'designed with adult collectors in mind'

Brett told us about the Assassin's Creed Mega Bloks only to totally leave us hanging now that the toys are viewable online. Never did trust that guy. Makedonski? Obviously a phony last name. Anyway, yes, Ubisoft has posted im...

Trick your loved ones into thinking these Japanese McDonald's toys are amiibo

Amiibo sure are all the rage, huh? Who would've thought that Nintendo's artificially scarce plastic figurines would create such a crazed demand? Were you lucky enough to get one that looks just like Steven's dog? If so, you'l...

Here's a cool amiibo infographic that displays all known compatibility

The amiibo craze is real, but some people aren't super keen on the collectible aspect and choose to focus on the in-game functionality. That's cool, but it can get a bit confusing as to what games are actually supported....

Toys"R"Us apparently canceling select Lucario amiibo orders...again

Back in December, Toys"R"Us canceled every Lucario amiibo pre-order (and some random Wave 2 or 3 orders). It sucked, because the figure is exclusive and they already took thousands of orders on them weeks before the...

Heads up amiibo collectors: Fox and Samus may be gone soon

Marth, Villager, and Wii Fit Trainer amiibo are rare at this point -- it's just a fact. Although Nintendo noted that the "core" figures will always be available (citing Mario as a staple), some of them will phase out. Accordi...

TruForce Collectibles gives us a little taste of their Mega Man X figure

Thanks to fan demand, TruForce Collectibles is crafting a new Mega Man X figure. Before this week we haven't had the slightest clue of what it looked like, but thanks to a recent Facebook posting we now have a better idea. So...
