Quick! Run to your nearest retailer and scrounge the shelves for Samus Aran amiibos! Last week, a lucky player revealed he picked up a model with a rare production mistake that gives the legendary bounty hunter an iconic cannon on each arm. If you turn out to be as lucky as him, snag that up! That little figure is your Golden Ticket, and it is worth quite a lot of money.

The buyer of the defective unit put the figurine up or sale on eBay, like the wise man he is, and watched as it skyrocketed in price. 75 bids later, his $12.99 for the amiibo turned a huge profit closing out at an even $2,500! He can buy just shy of 200 amiibos with cheese like that!

Learn from this man’s example. Never underestimate the passion of Nintendo fans, and likewise, never pass up such a golden opportunity to monetize on it either.
