Lucas, the star of Mother 3, returned to Super Smash Bros. as a playable fighter after his last appearance in Brawl. Six months later, his dedicated Amiibo figure will soon be released on store shelves on January 22nd, but more eager fans can get a head start through Best Buy’s website.

Alongside Lucas, preorders are also live for Kicks, Resetti, Celeste, and Blathers of the Animal Crossing line. They are all compatible with the series’ recent spin-offs: Happy Home Designer for the Nintendo 3DS, and Amiibo Festival for the Wii U. These Amiibo will launch on the same day as Lucas’ does. All five Amiibo are priced at $12.99 each.

Lucas was released as purchasable DLC for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U in June, alongside Melee veteran Roy and newcomer Ryu from Street Fighter; Amiibo figures for the latter two, as well as Famicom-color R.O.B., will launch on March 18.

Sakurai has also confirmed that Amiibo for the game’s final DLC characters—Cloud Strife, Corrin, and Bayonetta—are also on the horizon.
