General amiibo Discussion Thread
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.

Agreed. People are such dicks when it comes to this scalping stuff.

As for the chart, interesting visual. Just needs a date field so we know when it was last updated.

Wow, thats an awesome chart. But yeah, "discouraging." I think my mom was looking to get me a Diddy for Christmas. I was holding Zelda the other day, and 2 more Macs besides the one I bought.

Is anyone already scrambling for Wave 2s? (And I guess DK, Yoshi, Kirby are my next Wave 1s to snag..)
Posted: 12/15/14, 00:20:58
I haven't seen a single wave 2 in a store, here. Pit is the only figure I really, really want. If anyone sees one, pick it up for me.
Posted: 12/15/14, 01:55:23

Pit has been delayed along with Luigi and Captain Falcon. Last news was they'd release around Christmas.

Though somehow Amazon is showing two sellers as having them and they're selling for about 22 bucks. I call bullshit. Delivery is likely to take a couple weeks, unless it's some kind of import thing.

I did see some Zelda's the other day when I was trying to lock down Lucario.

Oh, you guys are having trouble finding Wii Fit Trainer NOW? Because it's about to get much more fun!!!!
Posted: 12/15/14, 04:20:50
We've been talking about this news for many, many days now. Like, in this very thread.

We've been talking about that for a while. Given your stance on amiibo, I'm kinda surprised that you're in this thread...
Posted: 12/15/14, 06:49:22
I found Zelda, Pit and Luigi are on preorder.
Posted: 12/15/14, 06:50:22
Looks like my Zelda and Little Mac are shipping from amazon tomorrow, they asked me to approve delays on the other 4. Oh brother.

I guess trolls don't necessarily have to be on time with their trolling.
Posted: 12/15/14, 18:50:32
I checked around my area for the "rares" and failed, even asked a buddy who works for Gamestop in Tenn. if he could see anyway of getting them and failed...did have another friend (New York) who said he got Villager through Canada.
Posted: 12/15/14, 18:51:53

Haha... Luis?
Posted: 12/15/14, 18:52:51
Yeah...foreign slut.
Posted: 12/15/14, 18:54:14

I've seen people say that, but I never got that email for Luigi. Hmmm...
Posted: 12/15/14, 18:54:28

I'm not sure if you mean him or me hah.

I got the last 2 in the area I believe... unless if they got more in.
Posted: 12/15/14, 18:56:22
Oh, it's for him XD
Posted: 12/15/14, 19:23:43
My amiibo collection...for now.

With my Disney Infinity collection thrown in for good measure. I need to slow down...

Posted: 12/16/14, 00:49:27

Very cool pics! I can't wait to see how my collection grows on Christmas for both of those.
Posted: 12/16/14, 05:38:18
I'll post my collection too then. It's missing Mario, Pikachu, Link, Peach, Kirby, and Fox which I have to keep in their boxes for now but these are the rest of the crew.

I really hope sleazeballs like this don't sell anything this holiday.

Captain Falcon was delayed slightly from the Wave 2 release (i.e. Zelda, Diddy Kong, and Little Mac). Along with him are Luigi and Pit.
They are to release around Christmas according to last reports.

I got an e-mail in the middle of the night saying that Captain Falcon was now available for purchase on Amazon.com so I excitedly went to confirm before alerting everyone here. Instead I find one guy, who promises to ship within 6-10 business days (just long enough for the things to actually come out), is charging $75 bucks! This is more than Marth is going for right now and the thing isn't even released yet. Screw this guy. It's disgusting.
