If amiibo have been hard to come by before, it looks like we're in for a whole new kind of scarcity. CPSIA certificates from Nintendo revealed a previously unknown amiibo in the Super Mario line of toys, silver and ...

The hunt for the Rosalina amiibo is on today, here's what I found photo
The hunt for the Rosalina amiibo is on today, here's what I found
by Chris Carter

[Update: according to this leaked document by CAG user Kurosaki-san, there will be no more Rosalina shipments for Target for the foreseeable future. The exact wording is that "this item will not be replenished." We've reached out to Target and will update with any pertinent info we obtain.]

[Update #2: A Target employee has confirmed the authenticity of this document, an internal newsletter called "The Vibe in Electronics." They state that running out of stock and not getting more shipments for a Target exclusive item is common. They also cement the fact that Sheik may be rare as there haven't been many shipments coming in at all, but Toon Link is in fact common.]

[Update #3: It looks like that's all she wrote for online orders, folks. Target has taken the Rosalina listing page completely offline.]

With the Target exclusive Rosalina amiibo pre-orders selling out in the dead of night within minutes and my Japan import is currently stuck customs, I still needed to snag one. So this morning I woke up with a fellow local amiibo enthusiast and decided to head to a few Target stores at opening to see what I could find. I ended up getting one Rosalina in total, but my results were mixed.

I had gotten a tip that one store roughly 30 minutes away would have 26 in stock and I'm lucky I went to that one. The line was pretty small as we arrived 20 minutes before opening, consisting of only three people in front of us. 10 more ended up showing up by the time the doors were unlocked at 8AM EST.

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...

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....

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

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....
