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.

Sooo... what do you guys think the amiibo market is like, now that so many previously rare units are easily available?

Is the mania still there, or do collectors no longer care, since there's so much supply?

I care about the Smash line but I almost regret buying the Animal Crossing series at launch. They're all so cheap now. I wasted a lot of money in that respect and definitely could have avoided international shipping costs had I just been patient for months and months.

Pretty pleased to see the stock levels as they are though.
01/13/16, 20:08
I'm really curious to see where the baseline level of demand will eventually settle. It's such a fascinating phenomenon.
01/13/16, 20:32
@Anand I'm personally glad that supply has caught up with demand, since it means if I want any figures then I could get them for the normal price, or maybe even less.

As far as collectors go, I think that will continue even as supply increases. I mean, people still bought up the extremely common figures like Mario, so I don't think it was the limited supply that was attracting collectors (just what attracted scalpers). Lots of people love to collect, lots of people love Nintendo stuff, and those people will collect the figures regardless of rarity. And then you still have people who buy just a few figures anyway, getting the characters they want, or the ones people want to use in games. Most of the characters Nintendo have released don't really have other merchandise out there, especially not some up to the good quality of these figures.

In short, yeah, the mania has died down, but I think the figures will remain popular for various reasons.

Roy is up at Gamestop.com!!!
01/21/16, 22:14
Aww crap, I forgot.. Making a phone call now..

EDIT- Finkdaddy, are you going to update the "OP" at all? Lets see all those Amiiboooo!
01/21/16, 23:44   Edit:  01/21/16, 23:49

I'd like to. It takes a lot of effort to organize and cleanly display those in the thread. I was thinking about it earlier today though.
01/22/16, 01:30
Beat the Bomb, an Aussie game site, has a lot of hard to find amiibo available and shipping is very reasonable. I got both Robin and Lucina for $26 including shipping. Nice to secure all of the FE ones I'm missing on one day.
01/22/16, 12:48
I've got graphics captured for all current amiibo via the Nintendo website. When I get time I'll group and make more images above. Even without Stache I'd be wanting to but this thread hasn't been updated in so long I do want to try to get to this.
01/22/16, 13:41
Chibbi Robo for $6.50 and Tom Nook for $5 at Amazon.
01/22/16, 20:24
I can't believe those prices are so low.

In current new amiibo news for myself, my Kicks and Lucas arrived today. They were Amazon shipped.

I also nabbed three packs of the Animal Crossing cards Series 2.
01/22/16, 21:36
Snagged all of them today, even though all of the AC amiibo will inevitably be cheaper in the near future...Best Buy had several of the AC amiibo left, but only one Lucas that wasn't already claimed.
01/22/16, 21:45

Yeah after seeing what happened with the Series 1 AC amiibo… I was tempted to wait also. But then Amazon did their 20% thing and I was like, 'eh, good enough'.
01/22/16, 22:07
...Did you guys know that Ryu and Famicom ROB were up on BestBuy.com? I just pre-ordered mine. Store pickup.

And AC Wave 2 is up on Toys R Us.
01/22/16, 22:39

I got mine a few days prior, but they're shipping to me (on release day for free).
01/22/16, 22:47
I managed to nab the last Lucas at my local Target.

He was pretty much the only I cared about, so I'm happy, heh
01/22/16, 23:22

He looks really nice doesn't he? I like him a lot. His hand is awesomely formed. Weird to note but still.

Also, I've now added some amiibo photos to the OP to make it a bit better and clearer. Will do more as I have time.
01/23/16, 01:12

Annd I just went and completed it all. It's a lot of amiibo.

Too bad we don't have an 'amiibo Database' a la the Game Database. But there, now we're caught up as far as I can tell on amiibo for thread purposes and now everyone's supposed to be happy. Myself included.
01/23/16, 07:18
Heyyy, nice update!

I guess my Lucas is still coming in the mail? I have no idea. Bought Blathers and Kicks yesterday at GameStop when I was like "..THOSE ARE OUT NOW?!" Didn't expect that. Pre-ordered Roy (which was why I went), and got Ryu / Famicom ROB for pickup at Best Buy.

Still gotta get Celeste(?) and Resetti. Would've got Resetti last night at Target..but I didn't see him. So I worry..
01/24/16, 01:00

Yeah, it's Celeste. Wave 2 for Animal Crossing just released yesterday. I've got my Kicks but Celeste, Resetti, and Blathers are coming by Tues/Wed.

Ryu and Roy are pre-ordered. I'm not interested in Famicom R.O.B. personally so I'm passing on that, like I did with the Skylanders amiibo.
