Nintendo's first foray into the gaming figurine business with Amiibo has resulted in some confusion about how long some of the more obscure characters may remain in production. But the company clarified that stance somewhat today, revealing that some Amiibo will eventually be discontinued.
A Nintendo representative told GameSpot: "We will aim for certain amiibo to always be available. These will be for our most popular characters like Mario and Link. Due to shelf space constraints, other figures likely will not return to the market once they have sold through their initial shipment."
While Nintendo doesn't specify which character may not make a return, it's probably safe to say that if you want to pick up Marth, Villager, or the Wii Fit trainer, you should do that sooner rather than later. Pikachu, Link, and Mario, however...those are probably going to be around for a very long time.
In other Amiibo news, a legless Peach figurine that a GameSpot reader sent us images for is currently at over $200 on ebay. And a faulty Samus figurine with two arm cannons recently sold for $2,500.
