Nintendo's amiibo are collectible figurines featuring all of your favorite video game characters from Nintendo Switch, 3DS, and Wii U. Ever the king of scarcity, Nintendo experienced supply issues, which led to rushes and shortages of certain figures. Some will set you back a pretty penny if you want to add them to your collection. Here are the most expensive amiibo statues out there. If you're interested, don't forget to check out the rarest and most expensive Animal Crossing amiibo cards.

Mega Yarn Yoshi

Teddy bear: Mega Yarn Yoshi

Staff Pick

This large plush amiibo was a Toys "R" Us exclusive. It was hard enough to find when it came out, but now that the toy company has gone under, it's even harder to obtain. Fortunately, there are some available on Amazon if you're willing to pay the right price.

The knit puppy: Yarn Poochy

For my money, some of the coolest amiibo figures come from the Yoshi's Wooly World series. With figures made from real yarn, they stand out most in the amiibo series. The priciest figure from that release is Yoshi's puppy, Poochy.

Starting at $77 at Ebay

The cube: Qbby

This simple little amiibo from BoxBoy! is one of the rarest and most valuable figures. You'll have to pay in the triple digits if you want to add him to your collection. This is a must-have figure for die-hard amiibo fans and is really hard to find.

Amiibo Inkling Squid Orange

Swimming solo: Inkling Squid (Orange) - Splatoon

There are several valuable Splatoon figures out there, and one of them is a Squid. This orange figure looks great on your shelf next to your other Splatoon figures. But if you don't have any others, his bright coloring makes him pop in any room.

$50 at Amazon
Amiibo Inkling Girl Green

It isn't easy being green: Inkling Girl (Green)

There are several different inkling girl variants, but this green figure holds the most worth. Maybe that's because she's the color of money. At any rate, no amiibo collection is complete without her.

Bad blood: Waluigi

Luigi's rival works with Wario to devise wicked schemes to thwart the Mario Bros. Sometimes that just involves trying to beat them at a game of tennis, using his long limbs as an advantage.

$70 at Amazon
Amiibo Solaire Of Astora

Praise the sun!: Solaire of Astora - Dark Souls

Dark Souls fans will be able to unlock the praise the sun gesture faster if they have this amiibo. Aside from that, it's one of the most detailed of all of Nintendo's figures.

Any amiibo with missing parts or additional pieces are high on collectors' lists. A few years back, a Samus figure wielding two guns instead of one sold on eBay for $2,500. Not a bad return on investment. Here's a link to a regular Samus amiibo.

$45 at Amazon
Samus Aran and Metroid

Space invader: Samus Aran & Metroid (2-Pack)

Amiibo Metroid

Evil alien: Metroid

If you simply want the Metroid figure on its own, it will still cost you a decent amount of money. This figure looks freaking awesome — like it's just broken out of confinement. It'll pair beautifully with any of the other Samus amiibo.

Floating princess: Peach (legless defect)

For many amiibo collectors, this defective Princess Peach figure is the holy grail. One sold for $25,000 on eBay a few years back. It won't cost you an arm, but maybe a leg. For a regular Peach amiibo, check out the link below.

Kirby Amiibo

Wedding crashers: Mario/Peach/Bowser Wedding 3-pack

To celebrate Super Mario Odyssey, a few figures could be found dressed in their best white wedding attire. You could buy Mario, Peach, and Bowser individually, but if you want to get them in the three-pack, you'll have to pay a decent amount.

Starting at $147 at Ebay
Corrin Player 2

The Fire Emblem princess: Corrin (Player 2)

One of the cool things about the Super Smash Bros. series of figures was the variety of characters on offer for the amiibo-verse. With that many characters, there were bound to be a few that ended up on the pricey side of the fence. The Corrin Player 2 figure from the Fire Emblem franchise was once one of the hardest figures to find.

$245 at Amazon

Combat queen: Bayonetta (Player 2)

Another figure from the Smash Bros. series is everyone's favorite leather-clad bullet artist. The Bayonetta Player 2 amiibo came out in mid-2017 and was a hard figure to find. She has since saturated the market, so you can pick her up a little more easily.

Go figure

When amiibo were initially released in 2014, the Nintendo fandom reached for their wallets and queued up to purchase their favorite figures, only to discover a limited number of the figures available. This led fans into a craze as they frantically collected popular characters and propelled the prices of these simple figures skyward. Whether releasing a limited number of amiibo was a calculated move on Nintendo's part to increase collector value or an unexpected incident, we might never know.

Either way, pop culture prospecting can be fun, exciting, and challenging all at once. Deciding which figure is most valuable is entirely up to your taste and preference. Still, we sure do dig that Mega Yarn Yoshi. It's basically a teddy bear with NFC abilities in its foot. If you're looking to try and make an investment, consider purchasing an amiibo and leaving it in the package. We specifically recommend the Guardian since it is one of the most useful amiibo in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

In addition to being cool-looking figures, amiibo all sport an NFC chip in their base. This chip allows you to scan your figures with your Switch, 3DS, or your Wii U. If your figure is compatible with your game, it can give you certain in-game bonus content or save data. If you're using your expensive amiibo but want to protect your investment, be sure to pick up a storage case.

There are currently over 176 amiibo with more on the way. We'll be sure to update this list as more Nintendo figures are released.
