After selling the rare figurine for almost 200 times what he bought it for, Truesdale told GameSpot the thought never crossed his mind to keep it.
"However, if approached by Nintendo, I probably would have [donated it]," he said. "I was considering hanging on to it to sell at a later date if the value did increase. However, with the high level of interest shown at the time when I posted it, I thought I'd go ahead and sell it now in case the value went down or a whole tub of them was discovered at a later date."
19 eBay bidders fought over the super-powered Samus for a week, helping the bidding rise from an initial $50 to $2,500. No surprises, but Truesdale's very happy after his prime case of Christmas come early.
Talking of Prime, in case you think there's some Corruption going on: GameSpot said it's seen additional photos and a receipt, adding that the figurine does appear to be authentic. In other words, keep a close eye on those Amiibo shelves over the holidays.
