A few months back, we dropped a list of each Super Smash Bros. series amiibo figure and a rough estimate of its current value in the second-hand market. Today, we’re continuing that trend with the Super Mario series of figurines — in other words, the ones with red bases! We’ve got a list of each character, their stock history, and a general range of their out of box prices. If you’re looking to start a Super Mario amiibo collection, you’ve come to the right place!

It’s safe to say that amiibo collecting has died down a bit since its peak in 2015. This doesn’t mean prices have died down, however, as several amiibo figures are long out of print and cost more than a pretty penny. That being said, quite a few collectors are looking to get their hands on Super Smash Bros. series amiibo in 2023, and we’ve written up a handy guide on how to go about that in the cheapest way possible. We’ve also got rough price estimates for each figure if you’re looking for specific info!

Well, no one knows for sure, but I have proposed a theory as to what may be responsible for this.
Please note that this is only speculation based on observations – nothing presented here is definitive or proven.

It’s no secret that the production of amiibo figures has slowed to a crawl. In 2021, we received a rather generous eight brand-new figurines! These include three from the Super Smash Bros. series, as well as two each for Metroid Dread and Super Mario 3D World. The Zelda & Loftwing amiibo was released for Skyward Sword HD as well. In 2022, we’ve received just one new amiibo figure — Min Min.
Between figurine delays and possible cancellations, the future of amiibo is looking rather thin. Today, we’re going to look at the reasons why this may be — and we’re also going to accept the reality that amiibo may be dying (we offer free therapy sessions in our Discord server).
