In a reverse Rosalina amiibo situation, someone just got a ton of accidental Kens


Can't hold all those Kens

"Man hate-buys Rosalina & Luma amiibo in bulk so fans can't have them." That wonderful headline from our own Brett Makedonski is burned into my brain.

I had enough trouble picking up amiibo in 2015, and knowing that someone loathed the fictional Rosalina character so much that he'd allegedly buy "$4,000 worth of figures" so other people couldn't have them was wild. For those of you who avoided amiibo entirely in 2015, you probably made the right call: that year sucked.

Fast-forward to four years later and 2019 actually kind of rocks for amiibo collectors. Picking up figures is much easier now and there are less frequent updates. In fact we've only gotten six amiibo so far this year (Ice Climbers, King K. Rool, Piranha Plant, Daisy, Young Link, and Ken). That last one is important, as this Twitter user ended up falling into an entire collection of them by mistake.

Alleging that they only ordered one, Amazon Japan evidently sent them a box full of Kens and they're still trying to figure out what to do with them, even showcasing some of their artwork in the process. If only we could all be so lucky as to get boxes of Kens on a regular basis.

As always, you can follow a full up to date list of every amiibo figure here.
