The Argyle Collector is a treasure in Hey! Pikmin that is unlocked when the player scans the Blathers amiibo from the Animal Crossing series. It looks just like the amiibo, and is worth × 200.
Collecting the treasure
After scanning the amiibo on the area selection menu (in any sector), the treasure will appear in one of the Secret Spots of the sector. Then, the player has to retrieve the Argyle Collector in that Secret Spot.

“I can tell by this unknown creature's eyes that it's a collector like me. When I was younger, I kept collections of all kinds of things: colorful leaves, special rocks, interesting bugs... I guess nowadays, I mainly collect ship parts and Sparklium. Not as a hobby or anything, but just to survive. I miss those carefree days...”

- Olimar's assumption of the statue being of a "collector" is accurate to Blathers' role in the Animal Crossing series, as he runs the town's museums.
- The things Olimar collected in his youth also parallel the things one can collect in Animal Crossing: colorful leaves (items in Animal Crossing are shaped like leaves and can change color when the items are edited), special rocks (a possible reference to fossils or gems), and interesting bugs (bugs are a major collectable in the series).
