Amiibo Loot Crate Now Live

Amiibo Loot Crate Now Live on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Loot Crate, the monthly subscription service that sends users boxes of random "geek and gamer gear" is now offering an Amiibo Loot Crate to customers in the United States.

For $50/week plus shipping for three weeks (or a one-time fee of $140 plus shipping), customers will receive three crates: Two with four Amiibo figurines each, and one with two Amiibo figurines, plus mystery items like stickers, wristbands, and a T-shirt.

The website notes that supplies are limited, so those wishing to stock up on Amiibo quickly (and get some cool mystery gear to boot) had better hurry.

Is there a way to filter the ramdon/mystery gear you get? I'd rather avoid spending money only to get something that's useless to me like a ps4 game.

Usually the mystery gear is stuff like stickers, posters, cinch bags, shirts, etc. I would hope with their more focused loot crates, like this Amiibo one, they would stick to the theme (Nintendo) but I haven't used the service myself, so I can't say for sure.

This seems extremely expensive for some Amiibos and stickers!

I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

I wouldn't say it's extremely expensive. Amiibo are $12.99 each. You get ten in this pack. Ten Amiibo separately would be $130. You pay 10-20 more with this and you get some neat little items and a shirt, which, if we go by Hot Topic prices, Nintendo shirts tend to run $20-$25, wristbands are $5 etc. Throw in shipping and sure, you're more or less breaking even, but part of the charm of Loot Crate is getting the surprises in the mail every week.

My main concern would be whether the Amiibo are randomized. I can't imagine I'd be thrilled to get any duplicates out of this.

Personally, I also think they're a little too early. It'll be 2015 before anything but Super Smash Bros. is compatible with Amiibo (or 3DS gets Amiibo support), so it's hard to see the big picture value of this right now.
