Hey Tribuners! It’s a brand new year, and you know what that means? Awesome new collectibles are on the horizon!

UPDATE: Mega Man X TruForce Collectibles Kickstarter – $80-$230

TruForceX

Remember this? TruForce Collectibles just launched a Kickstarter Campaign for their amazing Mega Man X figure. Due out in September with an MSRP of $80, these guys are not kidding around! Admittedly, I scoffed at the price when I first saw it, but if you consider what you’re actually getting (LEDs, swappable parts, some Diecast pieces, etc.) it’s really worth the investment. If you pledge $80 to their Kickstarter, you will receive an X figure before anyone else! Also, exclusive to their Kickstarter, there’s this!

TruForceX2

I’ll give you a moment. Dude… I know, right?! If you go big ($210+) you can walk away with the regular and “Test Armor” X! And if you go really big ($230+) you can get fiery red effects parts for your X figures!

If you manage to resist, this figure will be coming to Amazon and other specialty shops in the fall.

amiibo Waves 3 and 4 – $12.99+ Per Figure

AmiiboWave4

The Great amiibo War is on like Donkey Kong, guys! Thankfully, some retailers are starting to limit the amount of each amiibo you can buy in an effort to prevent eBay scalpers from snatching them all up. Waves 1 & 2 came and went fast, Wave 3 is almost upon us (and sold out everywhere), and Wave 4 is still taking its time to show up for pre-order.

So what have I learned from the first two waves of amiibo? You need to act fast! If you see a character you have your eye on available for purchase, jump on it! Also, I can’t help but love the emerging rarity system for amiibo, which ranges from Common to Unicorn!

Here are a few resources that can help you find the amiibo you’re looking for!

NowInStock – A site that lists each amiibo and their availability from various retailers, with a Recent Stock History that tells you exactly when your favorites are ready to order.

amiibo Inquirer – A blog that tracks all the latest amiibo News. Follow him on Twitter for best results!

LevelUpStudios – This a great shop that also has a decent selection of amiibo!

The regular edition is $249.99, but there is also a $269.99 Exclusive edition that features bright, pulsing LED lights in the base to simulate flowing water.
