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…
20 PLUS shipping? Why so much? I'm shying away from that..but check with Beardednerd. I think he needed one still?
I appreciate it though, yes. I'm doing my best to work within MSRP. I know sometimes that isn't possible (DAMN YOU NESS, DAMN YOUUUUU), but yeah. We're still expecting US stores to get some in, right? I gotta call my store tomorrow and ask 'em.
So yeah, officially passing on this one, but I'll take the next train if the price is right. (Again; thanks, really!)
Well, my crazy wife, after calling in sick today (she really is sick, thanks to me) went on the hunt this morning and nabbed most of the available amiibo for me. She did not get Ness or Robin or Lucina, but apparently that's not at all surprising. She did get an extra Jigglypuff, though. She still hates the dang things, but she loves to make me happy. What a gal!
Just grabbed Pac-Man and Inkling Boy on Amazon. Didn't figure Robin would be realistic, and it seems I was right. Really the only must haves left for me are Ganondorf and Shulk. Shame the Fire Emblem characters get four figures made per character.
Knowing what we know now, are there any characters we should look for straggling tomorrow still?
My Toys R Us was (was) packed with Greninjas. Found a stash of Jigglypuff's about 25 minutes from my house, too. How in demand are the Squid folk? My GameStop just had them sitting there, no competition.
I've got a 3-Pack coming in the mail, too.
Considering posting on Reddit in their exchange thread. Obviously I'd rather deal with / HELP you guys out, but "Marth 2nd Printing for Ness" isn't getting too many bites here. Worrisome day. :-/
Mighty kind of you Brandon! Will do. It arrives at Ploot's on Wed, then I have to actually go visit Canada to pick it up. So it wont be immediate if that's ok. But I hope to go hang with him and Beardednerd sometime soon.
And just to double check before I stick my foot into Reddit, nobody has an extra Ness for Marth re-print or Meta Knight re-print, right? I'd like to help you guys first. I got another guy locally (who I told about the site before, but apparently never showed up, so if he did, he could've just saw this firsthand!) is willing to trade a bunch of stuff. He has a Robin and Lucina ready to walk; I'm gonna call him in a few minutes, maybe I can trade on your behalf?
GameStop didn't have the 3-pack, the manager was very nice and apologetic, apparently they got 24 boys, 24 girls, and only 2 3-packs, 2.
Why Nintendo? Why?
EDIT: GS #2 said they only got 1 3-pack, ONE.
EDIT 2: Best Buy: bust. Target: bust.
EDIT 3: Found the Boy and Girl, settled for that, guess I'll never get the squid because Nintendo decided they still want to make things scarce in some idiotic scheme to increase demand instead of serving their customers. Thanks Nintendo! Thanks for causing me all kinds of frustration instead of making the Splatoon launch a fun event.
I should have a spare 3 pack. I just haven't announced what I have because nothing not all of it has come in yet. So if you haveent opened those and you really want a 3 pack I can probably help you out.
Id be asking for what i paid plus shipping. Not looking to make a profit. Let me look into it. Let me know if your interested.
