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.

Excellent! I just finished up all challenges with them last night and to be honest, while not the hardest challenges, the Squid ones were my favorite. All three, any three, are a good value if you're already wanting to figurine. I had a lot of fun with those bonuses.

Now I'll repost the list since a new page is opening with this post.

I'm looking to sell to those who need these dudes in their collections. Not for re-sale.

Items not listed here are Koovaps' Meta Knight from Canada which I haven't picked up yet. I'll grab it when I deliver the Little Mac to Beardednerd. I am also expecting the Silver Mario from Beardednerd with a little added cash in exchange for the Little Mac. Also, I owe Ploot for Greninja, though I can't recall how much it cost him. Hopefully I can visit Canada soon! Maybe next weekend guys? Maybe GameDadGrant joins us if he's free?

That price is just fine by me. And as far as I know, next weekend would be a great time for a visit.

Drag GameDadGrant along, it would be awesome to meet another NWer.

So you've got a Marth now?
Well, its not actually in my hands, needs to be mailed out, but yes, got him.

DrFink, Dude, I'll take the Ike if you still have him! I havn't posted for awhile, just thought I'd check out the boards. Let me know!
06/07/15, 23:04   
Are we talking about this weekend coming up? I can make it work if you let me know what day you're thinking. Let's get this party started!
06/08/15, 00:06   

Yeah, I'm talking 6 days from now, that Saturday maybe. But I might need to go to the airport to pick up my grandpa so it might need to be sunday too. Let me talk with my mom and Grant to see what's up.
06/08/15, 00:17   
As long as I know within the next few days then we'll be good to go.
Fun times ahead!
06/08/15, 00:49   

I'll ask a local guy if he wants that Wario if no one else does? By all means though, if someone here wants it, do it to it. I'll swing back in here tomorrow.


Awesome! Glad you guys got it together!

Some store in Australia (Hay Street, in Perth??).

And a KMart in Launceston, Tasmania.

By all means, Australia; keep complaining about stuff on NW... BLAH.

We got very little of that in Adelaide, granted I haven't travelled around much looking for them but yeah, nothing too special here apart from several of Meta Knight and Mega Man.

And hey, we get screwed over on a bunch of other stuff. Amiibos don't make up for that.
06/08/15, 18:48   

That Ness should be in my hands.
06/08/15, 18:48   
That's nothing, in NYC every store look like this. Look at all those Amiibos! Such variety!

06/08/15, 20:26   
So, GameStop.com is doing some funky stuff today. Apparently they put up a Wave 4 6-pack for $80.. Yeah, Ness was included in that. I don't know whats going on. All the Inkling stuff is currently up, and there is suspicions that they're putting those guys up again every 30 minutes. I gotta go to work in a little bit, so I don't like that, but yeah.. Keep your eyes peeled, eh?


Tim kept telling us how you guys got screwed on Club Nintendo stuff, too; your guys' definition of getting screwed and US folks' definitions of getting screwed are quite differently. If you love Nintendogs greeting cards, I guess America IS for you after all.

EDIT- Wario is up there now.

@Mr_Mustache Yeah, just ordered my Splatoon 3 pack, happy birthday to me!
06/08/15, 21:20   
We do get screwed with Club Nintendo stuff though! We only just got digital games on there a few months ago, prices are too high for me to bother buying any though.

You guys got that SNES Wii controller. That is THE COOLEST award possible. If you have an S-Rank award, and the best we have is Doc Louis' Punch-Out!!...which can now be downloaded for pennies....

Got him. Bun! Go!
06/09/15, 17:55   
..and gone.

I REALLY hope you guys were able to cash in and are too excited to post.

ELATED you got one, Ludist. *THUMBS UP*
06/09/15, 18:04   
Well, gee! That was up for all of four minutes...!

On the plus side, Sarah already nabbed me one as part of my birthday present, so I'm set. Although I wouldn't say no to a second one...
