Rare amiibo about to be restocked, get ’em while they’re hot!

The world has become a slightly more tolerable place for amiibo collectors, but not everything is perfect yet. Some of Nintendo’s elusive figurines are still incredibly hard to find even on the import market, and the secondhand price scare off honest buyers and scalpers still aren’t dropping prices for many of the rarest in the set.

Nintendo has promised more figures over and over again, and finally, “more” is what you shall receive! Nintendo of America has announced through its Twitter account plans to restock some of those hard-to-find amiibo, hopefuly giving everyone a fair stab at getting one.

Who do we have here? Lucario, Fox, Little Mac, Shulk, Captain Falcon and Geninja will be the ones benefiting from a second print this time around, but Nintendo hasn’t supplied a number or a date yet as to how many or when you can buy them up.

My Mega Man amiibo does need a friend, and who here would look best beside him? I’d probably go with Shulk seeing as how he might interact with Xenoblade Chronicles X coming out for the Wii U later this year.

Of course, I’m really holding out for the Shovel Knight amiibo, and I’m hoping Yacht Club Games doesn’t run short on demand like Nintendo has.

Anybody out there still having trouble finding that one amiibo that they want? How is the whole Prince Marth situation these days?
