Super Smash Bros. fans in need of amiibo for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate are getting a little help from Amazon Japan. The retailer will sell a giant box set of 63 Super Smash Bros. amiibo, starting on the Switch game’s launch day, Dec. 7. The catch is that just 50 of these boxes will be available.

Amazon hasn’t listed a price for the box set, but expect it to go fast with just 50 made. Other Amazon retailers, including the U.S. one, haven’t put a similar set on sale either.

There are 74 characters on the base-game’s roster, however, so you’ll still have to pick up the 11 forthcoming amiibo on your own. This boxset will include the new amiibo that will hit stores alongside Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on Dec. 7 as well. Those include Ridley, Inkling Girl and Wolf.

It looks like it will also come with amiibo that won’t launch until Feb. 15: King K. Rool and the Ice Climbers. Piranha Plant also appears to be in the mix. Amazon hasn’t said when the 50 box sets will begin to ship, but it seems most likely that buyers won’t receive it until at least mid-February.

Also included in the giant amiibo box — which serves as a storage case for the figures, should you not have a nice display case on the ready — is a hanging scroll adorned with the Battlefield stage. Amazon suggests you can use it as a backdrop for the amiibo, recreating some of your favorite fights with it.

The next wave of Super Smash Bros. amiibo will arrive later next year, which include Ken, Young Link, Isabelle, Pichu and Daisy. Nintendo has said that it plans to release an amiibo for each fighter, although others who still need them — like Solid Snake and Incineroar — have yet to be announced.
