I’ve been ignoring them since they came out but because of Fire Emblem Warriors, I decided to collect amiibo of characters from Fire Emblem Awakening. I thought they were reasonable to collect because there were just three of them: Robin and Lucina from the original Smash Bros. line and Chrom from the Fire Emblem series. And before today, I’ve been seeing all three in the video game shops near my area.
Well, I was wrong. I only got my hands on Chrom; the other two were nowhere to be found. I checked five different shops and none of them had any Robins or Lucinas laying around. I even emailed them but got no response.
Luckily, I found someone selling a bundle of Fire Emblem amiibo (only missing Lucina) and the seller was willing to break apart the package (I already had Ike and Chrom and did not want Marth or Roy). Since I was already playing Fire Emblem Echoes, I decided to get Alm and Celica as well.
Well now I have the bunch with me and my collection is decent enough; I’ve got my favorite Fire Emblem character in Ike, what looks to be my favorite romantic couple in Alm and Celica, and my favorite bromance in Chrom and Robin. All I’m missing now is Lucina but even without her I think I’ll be good. I don’t see Nintendo releasing any more amiibo from Awakening, Path of Radiance or Echoes so I don’t see myself sinking too much money in amiibo moving forward.
