James Wynne Writes: It’s not a particularly well made figure either, shoddy paint jobs and defective units aren’t terribly uncommon. True, Nintendo characters are popular, but did anybody expect them to drive people this wild?
Great article. I too find my self stopping into the gaming section when I go to the store *just* to see if by chance there might be a restocked rare amiibo. I also have been checking websites every so often to see if they have any stock. When I go into the store I usually grab one that I don't have yet, and now have 8 amiibo, way more than I thought I would have at this point. Being a collector of video games and a big Nintendo fan, it is hard for me not to get caught up in the amiibo need.
