LootCrate Exclusive Amiibo Deals Revealed
Earlier this week, both Nintendo and LootCrate announced that they were partnering up in order to deliver the amiibo range of toys through the mail. Over the past couple of days, tension has mounted as to what deals fans may expect from the companies; culminating in LootCrate finally unveiling its exclusive deals yesterday. Below, you can find out what you can expect from LootCrate’s amiibo deals, and how much they’ll set you back.
Over the course of three weeks, you’ll receive ten of the amiibo figurines, which are:
- Donkey Kong
- Princess Peach
However, LootCrate have announced that there will be a number of secret items, which will not be known to buyers until they have received their LootCrate package; LootCrate have further explained that these items are “exclusive and super rare”, and include a t-shirt. The first set of amiibos will be shipped out on November 20, and will include Mario, Kirby, Donkey Kong and Pikachu.
LootCrate have also detailed two payment options available for the amiibo deals. The first is that customers will pay $50 each week, as well as $15 for shipping and handling, which culminates in a total of $165; the other is a $10 where you pay $140 for the toys up front, as well as the $15 shipping and handling charge. Though each amiibo costs only $13, potential customers will have to decide whether the extra charge for the deals is worth the secret items that LootCrate haven’t yet announced.
When the LootCrate/Nintendo collaboration was first announced, Nintendo said that:
“By joining the subscription service, LootCrate guarantees the 10 pre-selected amiibo, and allows subscribers to avoid the hassle of rushing to retailers to find their favorite characters.”
In related amiibo news, GameStop recently announced that the Shulk amiibo will be available through their stores. In addition to this, there will be more amiibos released in the coming months, although it is unclear whether or not LootCrate will be shipping these to customers as well.
