If many of you have noticed, certain Amiibos are difficult to find. While limited supply is often the blame for this, there is also another culprit: scalpers. Scalpers are infamous in the performing arts world because they often purchase dozens or even hundreds of tickets as soon as orders become open, causing these tickets to sell out rather quickly. The only way to obtain these tickets is by purchasing them through resellers at exorbitant prices. Similarly, Amiibo scalpers purchase many Amiibos to resell them on sites such as Amazon and Ebay. These people make it difficult for the average consumer to purchase limited Amiibos such as Rosalina and Wii Fit Trainer.
