When asked on the concept of creating custom made Mii amiibos, Miyamoto stated this; “We do have a number of employees internally who want to be able to do something like that, and we’re performing different experiments. So it’s too late for us to steal your idea (laughs). There’s different ways that we could do it and ordering could be one, or there’s different structures that we could use. In fact, there is already an amiibo of my Mii.”

Amiibos are currently set to be retailed at 10 to 15 American dollars per figure. Creating a custom one would most likely range from 30 to 40 American dollars in relation to the $15 dollar price the pre-made ones are going for.
