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.

I was waiting for Store Pickup and/or my Best Buy password reset option, and by the time I got back around to it, it says that I can't pre-order anymore. Not entirely sure what that means. Am I completely out of luck? Is my store still getting some? Whats the poop scoop?

I don't know who this will help, if anyone, but Bestbuy.ca is having a sale on Amiibos. Limited selection, I think, but there you have it

So, I didn't reserve Shovel Knight instantly. I was waiting for the "store pickup" option to become available, and it never did. Is he not going to be in stores at all?


Thanks fo rlooking out, I hope some of our friends north of the border can take advantage of that.

I never saw it with a store pickup. What didn't you like about the free shipping to home?

Amazon had theirs up too but of course that isn't in store pickup either.

The makers said they're planning to have plenty of stock so I'm confident you will be able to walk in and pick up one on launch. Hoping for you bud.

I guess that was fine, I dunno.. I've kinda soured on Amiibo a little bit. I didn't even take my AC ones out of the bag.

01/08/16, 07:48

I wonder when it's coming in Canada... I've had a pre-order on Shovel Knight since November and the release date keeps getting pushed back. It's now listed as January 20th.

Shovel Knight is up at Gamestop.com.


I meant to tag Stache just now but I just want to concur. Today is shovel knight release day.

And Lucas is currently available on Amazon.com and Best Buy.com.

That's what they all say.

Wow, my store sold out (THIS MORNING). 30 people outside. When I went for stupid YARN YOSHI CRAP, I was the only person there!
01/09/16, 01:25   
Ugh, I thought Shovel Knight was Best Buy exclusive. I just called my GameStop and they've been sitting there all day, which is like 14 seconds from my Best Buy.. So I'm off to pick on up there.

Lucas, on the other hand, is being an ass. He got pulled out of my cart over on Amazon. NICE.

Picked me up that sweet Shovel Knight amiibo at target today. Nice. Also got several more of these things at Christmas, including the entire Animal Crossing set. Good times. Oh, and I have maybe half of the cards as well. Too many amiibo.

Oh yeah, almost forgot. I've also delved in to Skylanders Superchargers for the Bowser and Donkey Kong amiibo. They're kinda cool. Seems GameStop has them bundled separately, though. Not a bad way to go.

So did you get one? Hope so!

Mine arrived yesterday from Best Buy. I have the next Animal Crossing set reserved there plus Lucas but i nabbed a second pre-order from Amazon, which I generally prefer. However with the fact that BB shipped Shovel Knight to me for release day, I'm rather pleased with that and will probably just cancel the Amazon then. Not sure.
01/09/16, 15:44   

Lucas, no. Shovel Knight, yes. I called the wrong store (...) and when I got to the store I thought I called, they called my mall store (which I hadn't been to since they hosed me on the Xenoblade Wii pre-order bonus) and got one there.
01/09/16, 17:16   
I forgot to mention that I was able to order Lucas off of WalMart.com.

He will come to me?
Yes. I have forseen it.
