amiibo is certainly turning out to be a big thing in Nintendo's eyes. Whether or not the rewards for utilizing each amiibo is worthy to you, Nintendo plans to implement all sorts of bonuses. It appears right now that every amiibo is meant to do 'something' in each game though games not featuring certain characters may have more limited uses or lesser-valued ones. We've had plenty of threads on here for amiibo and I'm sure that will continue. Still, I wanted to establish a general discussion thread that doesn't have a specific focus or thought. We'll also use this thread for informing the forums about upcoming news regarding new waves of amiibo or new compatibility. Enjoy! Tell us which amiibo you're planning to get! To get the party started, here are the various waves of amiibo on their way, compatibility information from Nintendo's website, and various links to other threads regarding amiibo.
Super Smash Bros for Wii U, Mario Kart 8, Hyrule Warriors, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Mario Party 10, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, Yoshi's Woolly World, Splatoon, CodeName: S.T.E.A.M., ACE COMBAT ASSAULT HORIZON LEGACY, Xenoblade Chronicles 3D, and more…
Nice find! I saw five of her this morning at Wal-Mart, but none of the other rares. TRU was out of Marth too (or else I would have scooped the rest of them up and sold them at cost to my friends on NW).
I guess Lucario is just flat out sold out for Pre-orders. This is kinda a fugly situation. Do you think THAT many Lucario fans wanted it or that scalpers knew it would be rare and bought a bunch. I saw on Toysrus's site for other amiibo a 5-amiibo limit.. why 5? That seems unnecessary. Though I admit I could be complaining without knowing the whole story.
I'm the same way. I wanted them all, but I'm not paying out the nose to get them, so I'm going back to my original amiibo "strategy" and just getting the ones I know I want.
I own every Disney Infinity figure from the original except for nine of them (the Cars Play Set, Lone Ranger & Tonto, Phineas & Agent P, and Jack Skellington because I don't really want any of them) and all from 2.0 except for most of the Disney Originals (because I can't afford them at the moment). I didn't pay more than $15 for any of them except for one figure (Randall for $19) and I got several from 2nd & Charles used for store credit, a lot of B2G1 deals, etc.
Rosalina is going to be Target exclusive, and it's not available for pre order now.
I ended up with 2 Lucarios in my cart when I checked out earlier and I didn't want to mess with my order by canceling one. Assuming you can't snag one, I end up with two, and you don't mind giving me your address, I will hook you up with the extra one.
Kal-El! You are the man! Between Ludist, Kal-El, Cryojin, and others who have helped me this year, I'm truly so happy to have friends and peers like you all. Awesome.
Thank You Kal-El. I'll be checking the Toysrus website periodically and will hopefully catch wind of a re-print or new stock for pre-order. This item is still two months out but I will not forget your offer! lol. Thanks man. I have no problem sharing my address. Like with Ludist, I'll have to either gift you an Amazon card or maybe buy you an e-Shop game of equal value for your shipping/item/trouble. We'll work it out if and when the time comes.
As for Rosalina, that makes sense now. I'll have to keep an eye out for that news on Rosalina when she's finally available. Before I was aiming to buy them all, Rosalina was one of three KEY ones I wanted from Round 3 (along with King Dedede and Bowser).
Again, seriously you all. I love this community and the generosity.
I've still got to obtain the basic six. Mario, Peach, Pikachu, Fox, Kirby, and Link. Hoping for these as Christmas gifts. In tempted to get them myself but I wanted to provide stocking stuffer ideas. I just hope this doesn't bite me in the ass. That'd be crazy if fox or link sold out all together.
