We Are Tracking amiibo Prices

amiibo nintendo lot
Nintendo released amiibo in November 2014 and they have already become collector's items with some hard to find figures and even a couple extremely rare ones.

We've added all amiibo figures to our site so you can keep track of their value and see which are the most valuable.

amiibo are figures for different Nintendo characters. Each one can hook-up to the Wii U and the character can be used in games like Super Smash Bros Wii U, Hyrule Warriors, and Mario Kart 8.

Each figures retails for $12.99.

So far, 18 figures have been released with another 11 announced for release in February 2015.

Three of the figures - Marth, Villager, and Wii Fit Trainer - are quite hard to find with prices more than $50.

There are two very rare "mistake variants" that sell for $200+ each. Peach with no legs and Samus with two cannons. These are manufacturing mistakes and quite popular with collectors.

Initially we will be tracking these prices using automated methods on Amazon and manually on eBay. eBay prices will not be updated daily because it takes quite a bit of time to do it manually. If the amiibo page is popular enough we will take the additional steps needed to automate the eBay portion as well.

Do we really need to track the misprints? Seems unnecessary since they are so fluky.

@anonymous - I debated about this myself, but decided to track those misprints for now because the market pays such a premium for them. The most popular items on our site are the most expensive ones so I decided to keep track of these two misprints because they are the most expensive.

We are new to amiibo tracking so we might stop tracking those and other misprints if things change.

Interesting to see how this market ebbs and flows. Nintendo must realize they can just print money by making some more of these. It would be nice to give fans who really want a villager, Marth or wii fit trainer a chance to grab one without paying current market prices.

Rosalina seems to never be available for preorder from target, that one might be another hard one to track down. The only on I have not seen in stores is marth, villager and wft did not appeal to me when I saw them, would have been worth it to grab them though
