Illustration for article titled "Defective" Samus Figure Sells For A Ton On eBay

The Samus Amiibo that accidentally shipped with two arm cannons instead of one wasn't just an exercise in maximum firepower. It's also proof that "defective" toys are often the most valuable.


The figure went up for sale on eBay last week, and has now been sold for $2500.

Yup. $2500. Which to some might sound bonkers, but remember, if it stays in the box this isn't a Nintendo trinket, it's a rare - maybe one-of-a-kind - collectible.

This article really saddens me. He got $2500 and that is great for him, but he could have been patient and waited a couple years. Whoever bought it for $2500 is going to be getting a lot more, I'm sure of it.
