Amiibo Clear Case

Have you ever looked at the Amiibo on your shelf and said, “I’d really like a case to protect those”? Well, Play-Asia has a solution for you: these Amiibo clear cases just came up for pre-order. They come in two sizes, normal which will cost $9.99 and large which will cost $14.99. According to the Play Asia description, the normal size will be able to contain the Mario, Peach, Yoshi, Fox, Pikachu, Animal Crossing Villager, Kirby, Marth, Luigi, Zelda, Little Mac, Lucario , Sheik, Sonic, and Mega Man figures, and the large size will be able to contain Donkey Kong, Link, Samus, Wii Fit Trainer, Pit, Captain Falcon, Rosalina, Bowser, Ike, Meta Knight, Diddy Kong, and King Dedede. These cases will released on May 21, 2015.

While I can see these being highly desirable for collectors, three questions remain: one, can the Amiibo function through the case, two, do the cases have some way to hold the Amiibos in place, and three, what makes an Amiibo like Diddy Kong only able to fit in the large case? In any case, is anyone planning on buying these cases?

    Buy anything from play Asia is a pain in the ass.

    What size holds the Shulk amiibo?

  • Jahu

    From the pictures, it looks like the cases have depressions to fit the amiibo bases into.

    My guess is Diddy’s tail and wide armed stance makes him need a large case.
