I feel sorry for him. I don't condone counterfeiting or piracy in general, but he was providing a fair priced alternative service that Nintendo aren't. What about people that want to pay for the content they unlock but don't like amiibo or don't want a whole pile of clutter?
I bought a pack of the Zelda cards for BOTW(it cost less than €20 including delivery), as I wasn't going to spend literally 100's of Euros to unlock all the content within the game.
Some of the amiibo aren't available for purchase anymore or you've to pay a scalper a fortune, and for what, to unlock just a weapon or costume that was already in the game but locked behind an artificial paywall? No thanks!
I do have a good few amiibo, including Link, but I'm not buying any more of them as they're not worth it.
