It's been long enough since Chad Concelmo left Destructoid that we probably have some readers now who aren't familiar with the most amazing features editor/perpetual teenager/fragrance mogul to grace our pages. If you don't k...

The Nintendo UK Store just got a huge amiibo restock

An official online store, imagine that
Nov 28
// Chris Carter
In the UK, Nintendo has a dedicated online store where you can go online, and buy amiibo straight from the source. I know right? Here in the US we have to hunt for retailer exclusives and hope that our F5 tactics actuall...

GameStop has made good on its advertised Black Friday amiibo restock. Not only are stores packed with the promised Ike amiibo, but you can also find the other restocked figures through its website. As of writing, the reissued...

Don't go to a Walmart tomorrow: get the Modern Mario amiibo online now

It's up
Nov 26
// Chris Carter
Recently, Walmart tried to tempt folks into walking into a store and picking up one of "at least" 21 Modern Mario amiibo, but don't do that -- instead, just pick one up casually online. Why are these such a big deal? Well, th...

One year after the debut of amiibo, here are the ones that are rare worldwide

After restocks
Nov 22
// Chris Carter
With multiple waves of restocks, many shortages in the great amiibo war of 2015 have been resolved. But I decided to do some research today to try to track down the toughest amiibo to find, and I've come up with a brief list ...

No need to wait in line
The amiibo season this year is nearly over. Pending the release of the Shovel Knight figure in "Holiday 2015" (which could very easily be pushed), Lottie is the last known toy to be released in 2015, as a Target exclusive. As...

The Trinity shortage was a year ago
It's crazy to think that exactly one year ago today, I was hopping from store to store to pick up the first ever wave of amiibo. While characters like Mario were extremely easy to find, I distinctly noticed that even though I...

[Update: Just 15 minutes until little Chibi Robo's up for sale.] Two hours is enough time to steal and recycle enough copper to buy the latest Nintendo doll going up for purchase, right? The stand-alone version of the Ch...

According to Walmart's Black Friday ad, it will have a "minimum" of 21 Modern Color Mario amiibo at its stores. For those of you who are wondering why this matters, the figure was previously exclusive to a Wii U bundle in the...

The hunt is on for the Mega Yarn Yoshi amiibo, here is what I found

I hope you're waiting in line
Nov 15
// Chris Carter
Ever since July, I haven't waited in line for an amiibo launch. Today it would be my undoing it seems, as I missed out on the Mega Yarn Yoshi figure today at Toys"R"Us. Why did I go? My wife loves Yoshi, and hell, the thing i...

Being an amiibo collector is an expensive hobby. But really, limiting yourself to the Super Smash Bros. line wasn't all that impossible to do. It's the other waves that are starting to get out of control, particularly Animal ...

Nintendo is slow to provide nearly any news for upcoming amiibo, outside of some recent exceptions for bundles. Basically, we have very little idea of what newer amiibo even look like, or where they may be exclusive. While we...

Friends, Romans, amiibo-hunters: lend me your ears. The day is upon us for another amiibo release. It's a little bit of Smash Bros. and a lot of Animal Crossing. Mostly cute (like last time) with just a dash of badass. Mewtwo...

Blockbuster is probably a relic of your youth, the place where you rented overpriced games and movies even though everywhere else was cheaper. More recently, you may remember Blockbuster for its sad three-quarter empty stores...

There's still a lot of speculation as to when the Shovel Knight amiibo will actually come out. It's kind of a big deal, as a massive feature for the Wii U version (co-op!) will be gated behind it. While it isn't concrete, Bes...

When Star Fox Zero was announced at E3, Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto said the company was prioritizing single-player (and 60 frames per second) and that there would be no online multiplayer at all. That still seems to be the c...

Over 20 million amiibo have been shipped worldwide in this past year. Despite the manufacturing issues and poor communication, Nintendo has done well for itself. The margins are likely far more lucrative for the Animal C...

In western regions, you'll have to pony up for the Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash bundle to gain access to the Chibi-Robo amiibo, but it looks like a recent listing proves that isn't the case in Japan. It's a fairly typical pract...

As we noted earlier today, Best Buy confirmed it has the Falco amiibo exclusively. While Best Buy had a product page up for the Nintendo doll, you could not complete pre-orders. Now, you can go through with the pre-order process, and choose between shipping or in-store pick up, right here. I hope you get the toy if you were waiting for it!
