Retailer exclusive amiibo first made their debut back during Wave 3, with ones like Rosalina and Lucario being exclusive to retailers. Some have started to break free as of recent, but it appears Toys R Us is going all in on exclusives, as they have have secured not just one, but technically five across the month of November.
We just told you the other day that Toys R Us had confirmed the Mii Fighter 3-pack would be arriving in stores exclusively at Toys R Us on November 1. We also told you of two others that were certainly going to be exclusive, based on a teaser image, but now we have a release date for both of those courtesy of the Toys R Us Twitter.
The first is the restock of Villager, which is the first exclusive for a restock that wasn’t previously an exclusive. While it would have seemingly made the most sense to release him on November 13 alongside Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival and the Mewtwo amiibo, he is instead going to be available on November 8.
There are also reports that he has been found at some stores, just like the Mii Fighters, but the good news is that he is streetdated, unlike other restocks.
The other one we knew was coming was Mega Yarn Yoshi, which we previously heard talk of it releasing on November 15, which Toys R Us has confirmed. This exclusive is much more expensive than other amiibo, originally said to retail for $39.99, but with it being a Toys R Us, will it remain at that price or will they mark it up, considering it’s already very pricey? That still remains to be seen.
