Anyone collecting them or going to begin collecting them?

Marth, WII fit trainer,  and villager are the rarest currently. I'm planning on getting them all.

I might buy a couple, but I'm not collecting them all. They aren't Pokemon(not that I ever catch 'em all, anyway).
I stream video games on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings(plus some other streams throughout the week). https://www.twitch.tv/zedisdeadru

I keep searching for this one; but it's always sold out wherever I check.

I love Animal Crossing, so I wanted a Villager amiibo, but alas! It's super rare.

I'm not completely sold on amiibo yet, anyway. Though Pit is pretty sweet.

I mean, that's the thing though. If I had a Wii U, then I'd have more reason to get amiibo. But I don't and so they're just figurines to me. Which is fine! But I don't know, I feel like I don't need more "stuff" in my life. And tomorrow that may change!

I expect Nintendo will cook up some cool game that utilizes all of the amiibo and I'm interested to see what they come up with.

I'm embrassed to admit, but I have eleven of 'em. Though they're a neat in-game diversion, half the appeal of getting them is because they're so damn tricky to get a hold of! :B

See, it might just be that I'm not a person that really feels the pull to collect things. Books and plants are probably all that I ever get that feeling towards. But I can see the appeal of the hunt! And I also recognize the investment that collectors are making.

Speaking of amiibos, someone made a fake Mewtwo amiibo and is selling it on eBay. Right now, the auction is at $510, with one day left. The "amiibo" actually works with Pokemon Rumble U, since it uses that game's NFC chip, but will not work on any other game. The false amiibo was made by attaching a Mewtwo toy to an amiibo stand and adding the NFC chip. It comes in a custom package that looks almost legitimate.

For those of you that missed out on Marth, Nintendo plans to restock the amiibo in late April.

Those are the two amiibos I'd be most tempted to buy.
