It's time for an end of 2019 amiibo collection status update


Report in

Two months agoI pondered if amiibo collectors were still trying to go after every Smash line figure and got a pretty explosive response. I aimed small. Now we’re looking at the whole shebang.

Responses for theSmashquestion, withUltimatenow in the equation, were mixed. Multiple people were “only missing a few,” while many gave up asUltimatewas announced. Several were “tapped out,” and hadn’t purchased amiibo since the Samus Returns generation in mid-2017.

I’m still in it! I have every figure, worldwide, as of December 2019. The most recent additions were November’s Simon, Chrom and Incineroar, as well as theShovel Knight3-pack I pre-ordered years ago and the Golden Shovel Knight figure.

In February of this year I asked people how they felt about amiibo, and 42% noted that they were casual collectors, 21% said they were buying “quite a few,” and 15% responded that they were trying to collect them all. I didn’t even think it would bethathigh. I need more data!

Take a minute before you answer. As always, I keep a running total of every figure ever released,with full date and set breakdowns.

Going in 2020, are you still collecting amiibo?
