According to Bloomberg in 2015 over 2 ½ million amiibos were sold and 2016 looks to be an even bigger year. While stock amiibo figures will always have a place in the heart of collectors, more and more hunters are stocking up their amiibo collections with custom amiibo figures.
Why Purchase Custom Amiibo Figures?
Many people are willing to pay a premium for one of a kind amiibos. They take pride in knowing that no one out there has this figure and that there’s is one in a million. For collectors like myself, having rare figures is something to treasure and allows one’s collection to really stand out.
What To Know
- Orders can take 3-6 weeks depending on your specifications.
- Make sure and be as SPECIFIC as possible when telling the artist what you would like with your figure. They will work with you but can not read your mind and can only work with what you give them.
- Rarer amiibos will cost more than common ones (obviously.)
