Amiibo’s Available To Pre-order at Eb Games Aus; Placeholder Price $30
EB Games Australia is now taking pre-orders for Nintendo’s NFC offering – the Amiibo. The retailer currently lists the figurines at $30 each. Now before you get a heart attack, these prices are placeholders and will likely change when Nintendo announces the official price. For context’s sake – Skylander and Disney Infinity toys usually retail between $15 – $20 in Australia (I know they are bloody rip off when they are not on sale), so it is likely Nintendo will opt for the same pricing model. However, I recommend to Nintedo to sell the Amiibo’s a few dollars cheaper than the competition. In my opinion, sell them for $10 -12 will guarantee that this figurine’s will fly off the shelf.
In addition, Eb Games note’s that 10 figurines will launch alongside Super Smash Bros For Wii U, with more to be released during the holiday season.
