Somewhere out there is a Nintendo fanatic with a lot of disposable income. Gamespot reported on a factory error that left a Peach amiibo legless.

The figurine subsequently went up for sale on eBay, where it sold for over $25,000.

This is significantly higher than what they are priced at retail stores, which averages at $13.99. There have been other botched amiibos in the past, according to Gamespot--including a Peach figure with backwards legs.

This has been a trend for Nintendo hobbyists; misprint Pokemon cards have sold for sizeable amounts in the past. A Dragonite Pokemon card misprint is currently being sold on the popular auction site for $499.99.

In addition, there is a Blastoise misprint currently selling for $329.99.

The amiibo figures were released in conjunction with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Super Smash Bros. for 3DS. Both games have sold at record-breaking paces.

According to VG247, the game's Wii U incarnation has doubled the sales of its titular console in Japan. The week prior to Smash for Wii U's release, its console sold 12,496 units. But when Smash launched, the Wii U sold 24,469 units.

The commercial success has been accompanied with critical acclaim: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U currently holds a score of 92 on Metacritic.

The Escapist stated, "Super Smash Bros. for Wii U delivers hour after hour of fun fighting game play, even if you hate fighting games."
