Lucario Amiibo Available For Pre-Order Now

Nintendo’s Amiibo figures, which have quickly gained massive popularity among the Super Smash Bros. crowd (and collectors in general) continue to fly off the shelves, and it looks like another Smash Bros. fighter is getting in on the action.

Lucario, the fighting Pokemon, and one of my personal favorite Smash characters, is getting an Amiibo for use with the game, and you can only pick it up at Toys R Us. You can pre-order the elusive figure here for $13.99, but note that the estimated ship date is’t until February of next year. That may seem like a long time to wait, but with the way these things fly off the shelf, I wouldn’t wait to snag mine before they are all gone. You can actually order up to five if you want to be that kind of person, but with his sleek look, sweet fighting pose and reputation for gaining power as he takes damage, I can’t really blame anyone for wanting to scoop him up while they can.

Reception the the Amiibo figures has been overwhelmingly positive, and I’m glad to see more characters joining the roster. Are you planning on picking up Lucario? Leave us a comment with your thoughts!
