Nintendo and Loot Crate, the online delivery service, have teamed up to start shipping the new Amiibo figurines once that series launches on Nov. 21.

Loot Crate is offering a subscription that will guarantee delivery of 10 "pre-selected" amiibo, naming Mario, Pikachu, Donkey Kong, Fox McCloud, and Yoshi in the group. The other five will be announced by Loot Crate "soon," a statement said.

Loot Crate did not announce an expected price for its subscription. Nintendo opened preorders for the first 12 amiibo figurines back in August, offering them for $12.99 each.

Those interested in signing up are directed to this page, where they may add their email address to a waitlist.

Amiibo are Nintendo's entry in the toys-to-life video gaming genre and will feature interactivity with Super Smash Bros. (Wii U), Mario Kart 8 and Hyrule Warriors at launch, with compatibility coming next year for four other games. They interact with the game through chips embedded in the base of the figurine, which are recognized when placed on the Wii U controller. An adapter for the 3DS is in the works.

To see which figurines are compatible with certain games, see the chart below.
