Nintendo's official CPSIA certificate page confirms rumors that Marth, Ike, Meta Knight and a few common amiibos are being reprinted and restocked. Images of Marth and Villager reprints from Australia have also popped up online. One image posted to Imgur shows that some of new amiibos feature a slight redesign. So far differences have only been noticed in the 2015 reprints of Marth and Villager. The reprint of Little Mac in Australia does not seem to feature any changes.
