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.

YES, I called to confirm earlier (and meant to post here for you guys to see, glad you broke the news) that I'm finally getting my King Dedede this week. That'll put me at 100% of the collection, and keep me up to speed until later this month, haha! Semi-stoked.

Yeah, I got really lucky with that one. They were European imports, but I couldn't care less, I rip the package open then display them. In my experience having gotten amiibo from NA, Europe and Japan they are exactly the same, just the packaging is different.

You should've swapped with Fink! His packages were DESTROYED. Wouldn't mind ripping those open, yeah?

Grabbed Ness and Dedede completely at random today. I think I've been enough of a GameStop stalker lately though...

Nice! Those just got a rerelease. Well done.
Posted: 07/10/15, 13:20:31
So, here's a new one (for me):

Called GameStop on Wednesday as I knew Dedede was on his way, wanting to make sure MY location got some because I've had it reserved since the initial release. And, like, that would make sense, since GameStop would know that somebody at that location "needed" one still. Talked to the manager (who I'm on a first name basis with), she opened up a box that she hadn't opened up yet, "yes, he's in here!" I asked her to not TAPE my name to it (after she said she'd put my name on it), since it left some tape scum on Ike's bubble, so she said she'd use a rubber band instead. Sounds good (assuming its not too tight to leave an indent, ya know?). She said she wasn't working Thursday, and that was fine since I'd be in Friday.

Swing on down there today, "hey Rob!" Opens up the cabinet where reserves go. "Where is it?" "Oh Sandy, don't play with me!," I say. Another girl (who I don't know) asks her for the SKU while she looks different places for it; "I left it right here.." Other girl types it in "says we don't have any." My stomach drops, of course, and now I'm like "uhhhh, what?" Two different people worked the day before, one of whom is a girl who gives me special treatment, knows my obsession with Amiibo, and definitely knows my name. The other is some kid I've never met, or at least don't know him by name. I WONDER WHO SOLD IT ON ME? The girl said she didn't do it, and that she saw my name in there on it. The other kid has also denied it.

Question: what the hell happened??

Next Question: they called all over the place looking for non-reserved D3's; are there any extra NA ones floating around on here? Nightmare scenario for me here, as I don't believe there'll be anymore shipped, obviously. Pretty sickening. That was the last one I needed.

That's a horse-shit thing to do. How hard is it for them to keep that shit straight!? Sorry to hear this man.

Keep an eye out on Target.com and such as that was busy with activity today for amiibo and King Dedede was one of them. Jigglypuff, Captain Falcon, and others too.

And while this isn't the answer you want, if you can't find any, might as well nab one of Amazon for an inflated price while the prices are lower. I doubt they'll be any lower unless more are printed.

I wouldn't be surprised if the other guy took it for himself. My friend works at Toy R Us and knows for a fact that his coworker stockpiles any rare amiibo before they even hit the shelves.

It would have been so easy for that guy at Gamestop take the rubberband holding your name off, buy the thing for himself, and laugh all the way to Ebay. "Oops, I didn't see a name. CHA-CHING!"

I saw a bundle on Gamestop's website that comes with Smash U, a GC controller adapter, Dedede, and Ness for around 100-120. It might be gone now considering how rare those two are. If not, you could probably return Smash U to your store, sell the adaptor to someone on here on online, and keep the amiibo.

EDIT: IT'S STILL UP. It's $105, so if you return Smash for $60, sell the adaptor for $10-$15, and keep the amiibo you'll be getting two very rare ones for about $30. It's a bit more work, but given the circumstances it's not a bad option.

That would probably make more sense for me if I didn't have Ness yet. I do though.. Blargh.

Made some ""progress"" today on the phone with them, but (for some reason) even with them beyond the deadline for reserves, they're still waiting for people to pick them up. Deadline was last night, they should've been in the mail this morning en route to my store.
Posted: 07/12/15, 00:11:03

You'd definitely be able to sell Ness somewhere.
Posted: 07/12/15, 01:24:18
Wahoo! Walked into a random GameStop today and they had five Ness amiibos! Amiibos don't do much for me, but I had to have Ness. Now I just need Jiggypuff and the elusive King Dedede.
Posted: 07/12/15, 01:39:54
Holy smokes! Any chance you can grab me a Ness too? (I have one, but I'd like to have one just to keep in box) I'd gladly trade you my new-in-box Jiggs for it.
Posted: 07/12/15, 04:33:37
Got a Ness and Dedede completely at random on Thursday. We really want all the Kirby characters. Got the last Dedede they had.

Also, saw that I get a $10 credit if I use American Express checkout on Newegg, so I got Diddy Kong (who is $10) so I basically just got a free Diddy Kong. Wasn't planning on getting him but hey, if he's free...

Kind of surprised and disappointed Nintendo hasn't gone back into any older Wii U games to add Amiibo support. I'll have DK and Diddy so it would be cool to do something with them in Tropical Freeze. Maybe just like a costume or something. Maybe replace their 3D models with the 2D sprites of the original games lol.

Jigglypuff available on target.com. Rosalina and Charziard and the others are unavailable but Jiggs is still up. Grabbed her and Mega Man to get free shipping

I guess I should be checking around for Ness. He seems plentiful everywhere!
Posted: 07/12/15, 18:51:26
Apparently (...), the District Manager has personally wrangled a King Dedede for me and my horrible story via my Store Manager, so I SHOULD (SHOULD) be getting a D3 on Wednesday.

Posted: 07/14/15, 00:29:53
Do we have a thread about how everyone displays their amiibo? I'm basically out of room under my TV stand and might be putting up some shelves on my thin wall. Might be annoying with the lamp cord going down the wall but I think it should work well.
Posted: 07/14/15, 17:44:01
This is the perfect thread for that discussion. I have mine not on display right now because I'm moving soon and I need to setup a place. You should show us with a picture!
Posted: 07/14/15, 18:33:03
I currently have all of my humanoid Amiibos, and Greninja, circling Jigglypuff in their most aggro postures. Ready to beat on the little puffball
