The UK retailer ShopTo has made a wide selection of Amiibo figures available for pre-order online. Although Nintendo has not yet announced an official price for the Wii U figurines, ShopTo has priced the products. Each figurine costs £12.85 in the UK according to the retailer. At the current exchange rate, that comes in at about $22, easily the most expensive figurine gaming accessory. By comparison, Skylander figurines cost anywhere from £8.99 to £11.99. Disney Infinity characters, meanwhile, cost about £9.50.
As of yet, Nintendo has not confirmed whether these prices are legitimate, or whether ShopTo is simply using a placeholder price temporarily until the figures’ price is officially known.
