After shipping over 5 million figurines, Nintendo reveals the most popular characters

The company’s Amiibo line has officially shipped more than 5.7 million units to date, according to Nintendo. Along with the announcement, Nintendo released lists of the most popular Amiibo, by country.

Absent from or fairly low (in the case of Marth) on the lists, of course, are Marth, Villager and the Wii Fit Trainer, which have become quite rare after Nintendo ceased shipment of these figures shortly after release.
