My goal is not to own every amiibo, just ones I’m interested in. With that said, I’d love it if they restocked Meta Knight from the Kirby line, and Toad from the Mario line. I’d also be happy with Meta Knight from the Smash line, to have both versions.

I recently bought a Samus amiibo to go along with Ridley, which I pre-ordered.

I’m also looking forward to picking up the Young Link amiibo when it’s eventually released, which will happen as Nintendo said all Smash charscters will get amiibo.

I might get Pichu to go along with my Pikachu and Detective Pikachu amiibo. It’s too bad Raichu won’t be in Smash, because then I could have the whole "chu" family.

Also if they ever re-release the giant Yoshi, I might get it. It was a TRU exclusive, but now that they are out of business, who knows...

Yeah I just saw it yesterday for $20 at Walmart

I am only a casual Amiibo collector but was thinking they should've made an 8 bit Donkey Kong by now right?

Everywhere I go the Amiibo stock is slim to none. Often times I'll find Animal Crossing Amiibo, or the standard Mario or Luigi, but its been quite a long time since I've seen anything out of the ordinary on store shelves. Luckily I was buying Amiibo like crazy between 2015 and 2016 and have almost every one I want, including the gold and silver Mario and many of the scarce characters that came out at the time. With the new Smash game out you'd figure Nintendo would flood the market with restocks so people can get their hands on the Amiibo they need to play the game, it's a bummer stores are not seeing the product come in.

As for my collection....

Both 8-Bit Marios
Standard Mario
Gold and silver Mario
Wedding Mario
Dr. Mario
Standard Luigi
Flying Luigi
Bowser
Battle pose Bowser
Wedding Bowser
Peach
Wedding Peach
Link
BOTW Link
8-Bit Link
Link playing ocarina
Wind Waker Link
Toad
Samus
Blue suit Samus
Little Mac
Pac-Man
Yoshi
Blue Yarn Yoshi
Mega Man
Pikachu
Lucario
Sonic
Shovel Knight
Cloud
Boo
Regular Kirby
Ryu
Bowser jr.
Star Fox

There are a few more I'm looking to hunt down such as Ganondorf, gold Mega Man, and a couple others, but I'm not looking to own every single Amiibo ever. I do hope more Amiibo for more non-Nintendo characters come out someday. It would be sweet to see some Resident Evil Amiibo someday.

When Smash Ultimate was announced, Nintendo mentioned a full re-stock of the Smash line if amiibo (as well as amiibo for all fighters that donít currently have one). Itís just a slow process.

Pac-Man already got a re-stock, I picked it up in December with its new packaging.

It would've made more sense to flood the stores with Amiibo when the game came out. I saw some of the core characters around that time such as Mario, Luigi, Samus, and Yoshi, but far from what I would consider a full restock. I'm hoping your right and Nintendo gets these products out to retailers soon because there are millions of people willing to spend money to own these little dudes and dudettes.

There are a few reasons why it's taking so long.

1) Nintendo ships (literally ships, on a boat) product rather than flies in it, because it's cheaper for them but it also takes about 2 months to arrive in the US. Ė On rare occasions, such as the holiday season of 2017 they paid extra to fly in new stock of Switch units to meet demand. That doesn't happen too often.

2) While new amiibo are priced at $15.99 they said re-stock of old amiibo that were originally priced at $12.99 will remain at $12.99, so maybe they want to put some distance between release times for new amiibo and old amiibo as to not confuse customers (Parent: Why is this one worth more than that one? You'll get the cheaper one Jimmy) Ė Can you imagine if both Ken and Ryu were on the store shelves next to each other, a parent looks at them and says "why the heck is Ken $15.99 but Ryu is only $12.99?

3) In connection with #2, the factories they are using probably can't produce 72 different amiibo at the same time, so they are just focusing on the new ones at the moment, then once those are all released they will work on producing more of the older ones.

Anyway, the only one I'm currently waiting for is the Smash version of Young Link, so I can add him to my Zelda collection.
