Certain Amiibo’s to be discontinued

While scouring the internet for the latest news I stumbled across a few different that claimed that certain Amiibo characters were being discontinued after only a few weeks of being on store shelves. My first reaction to this was “this must be some kind of a joke” but after looking further into it this story is true. Three of the first wave of  Amiibo’s released will no longer be available once stores sell out. The three Amiibo’s are The Villager, Marth and Wii Fit Trainer. It’s unclear why Nintendo would drop the figures so quickly but they did offer Kotaku a statement

“We will aim for certain amiibo to always be available. These will be for our most popular characters like Mario and Link. Due to shelf space constraints, other figures likely will not return to the market once they have sold through their initial shipment.”

with that being said the only conclusion I can come up with is that those figures either had very poor sales or Nintendo planned to do this from the get go to possibly raise the interest in some of the lesser sought out characters. Whatever the case may be, get your Amiibos while you still can.
