Target Exclusive Timmy & Tommy Amiibo Revealed
It may have only been yesterday that the first of the long-awaited series of Animal Crossing Amiibo figures were released in the United States, but it seems that Nintendo has big plans for the future of Amiibo Animal Crossing figures… including another store-exclusive figurine that’s on the way! Coming to stores this winter: the Animal Crossing Timmy & Tommy Amiibo!
Timmy & Tommy Nook Amiibo Target ExclusiveWhen the first series of Animal Crossing Amiibos was announced, I was distraught to see my favorite characters left off the list: the twin tanuki (or raccoons outside of Japan), Timmy & Tommy Nook!
Whether Timmy & Tommy are the sons or nephews of Tom Nook (or have no true relation to him at all) is anybody’s guess, but they’ve been appearing in Animal Crossing video games from the beginning and have become beloved characters nonetheless.

So it seemed a bit bizarre that they would not be immortalized in plastic Nintendo Amiibo figure form.

As of yet there’s no confirmed release date for this duo, but as they’re already present on the Target display, we can reasonably assume that they’ll be released sometime this winter.
