Nintendo trying to meet demand for amiibo in the UK


Nintendo has promised to try and restock some of its harder to find amiibo characters are retailer stores in the UK, which we presume includes online retailers such as ShopTo.

On a statement via the companies Facebook page, the company said, “We appreciate the enthusiasm that our fans continue to show toward amiibo. Sales for the product have exceeded our expectations. We understand how frustrating it can be at times if consumers are unable to find certain figures, and we apologise for that.



“We’re trying to meet the demands of our fans and consumers by increasing the amount of amiibo we manufacture and ship to retail. We may continue to see consumer demand outpace supply levels for certain characters at times, but we will do our best to prevent that from happening.

“As our library of Amiibo continues to grow, some figures will be easier to find than others. We are constantly looking for the opportunity to reissue amiibo and are already making plans to bring back some currently out-of-stock amiibo figures.

“Nintendo plans to make it easier for consumers to know when new Amiibo are on the way, through Nintendo press announcements, timely updates on our social media channels and working closely with retailers.

“We remain committed to keeping amiibo affordable and easy to access as a platform to enhance game-play experiences.”

What amiibo don't you have and which would you like to own?

If you're asking me which, I'd say I'd really like it if Shopto were to re-stock 'Lil' Mac' as his stance and boxing shorts look just seem so adorable and he's a great Nintendo Boxing Mascot (although he isn't representing a White American, alas!). He is also the best character in Smash Bros. after 'Zero Suit Samus' is! Also, can't wait for Nintendo to bring over that Pokémon brawler for Wii U and hopefully release some Pokémon Amiibos specifically for it! You can also get in a continual supply of the 'Woolly World Yoshis' as they are just too cute to believe and 'CHARIZARD', of course!

I never left to come back ;). Did you even care about the topic of this thread to begin with or were you more keen to be eristic to me online from the start? I don't honestly care as I do most of my online shopping elsewhere, mate and at this rate, it will be all-the-more-often elsewhere ;)! If you'd like a reply to your penultimate post, well, here's a clipped part of it: '... UPDATE: to our contributor 'Tootles', you haven't DISPROVED O-N-E THING with that snapshot of yours in relation to that which I jotted down in my last post ;)!' & '... and b) those locks of your 'better-half's' are DYED-Blonde (deny it all you like ;)!), so she IS very well raven-haired underneath that paint after all!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA ...loRL!'

Oh, my picture's gear isn't that of a 'Pirate's' but actually that of a wealthy Sheikh's ;)! I use it to remind myself of the ignoble intrigue the English-speaking World, from North America to these shores, was upto to over its ears over the preceding decades and, nay, preceding centuries no less if Charles Dickens' 'Oliver Twist' is anything to-go-by ;)!
