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.

If I were you I'd just take a screen grab of the tweet in question and post that as an uploaded image.

Picked up Waddle Dee last night at my GameStop. (Gotta see what you guys suggest in the TMS#FE thread) Didn't get any of the others, SUMMER WEAR ISABELLE (REALLY?) was all reserved out. Where is "Sleeveless Ike?" I'll buy that.
06/11/16, 23:57
Whoa, new Amiibo for Breath of the Wild coming! (2017)




EDIT- Oh crap, theres a bunch of other ones for other games!

New Splatoon figures are NEXT week, yes?
06/29/16, 02:50
@Mr_Mustache

Yes, those should be available on Friday of next week.

@ludist210

Do you think we need to reserve them, or are we at a point where you can just swoop 'n scoop?

My GameStop told me that they didn't have any extras of the Kirby ones (save Waddle Dee), but when I was in there the other day, the other 3 were overflowing off their pegs. I dunno.

@Mr_Mustache Those look badass. How much is that huge one going to cost?!

I still kind of just want to get Toon Link though. Favorite Link.

Also, how is Diddy Kong part of the "Super Mario" line-up?! Are they just considering DK to be Mario?

@Zero

Is Diddy Kong in Mario Party? I can't recall.
07/01/16, 02:43
Not that I can recall? I only remember him from the DKC / Smash games and Diddy Kong Racing, though he is probably in more somewhere.

Hmm, looking it up online it appears he is in a ton of Mario spin-offs like the sports games, etc. Still, I think of "Donkey Kong" as a separate series from "Mario", even though they did both come from the same origins more or less.

Wait, what the...

Diddy had a brief cameo in "Mad Max Beyond the Thunder Dome." (1987)

Is this just some Wikipedia user trolling us? How did he have a cameo in a movie made like 10 years before his first appearance?!

@Mr_Mustache

I reserved mine.
07/01/16, 18:03
@Mr_Mustache Unless it's a special edition, amiibo stocks have been plentiful. GameStop likes to create the illusion of scarcity to get people to pre-order.
07/01/16, 22:53
For Callie and Marie, I just pre-ordered. I'm on days this week, so I wouldn't be able to get out early. I'm not taking any chances this time, since I'm still looking for Lucina. I have someone in Hong Kong who will keep an eye out though, so here's hoping.
07/03/16, 03:48
@ludist210

Maybe I'll go plunk some dough down today then, too. Not worth the risk. Despite Mop it up creating the illusion of safety!

@Ponderus

Still looking for Lucina? Egad.. Have our NW feelers been out for this, guys?
07/03/16, 20:48
@Mr_Mustache
Don't sweat it, if I want to break down, I can order online. Mostly, I've been checking the usual places because you never know. Part of the thrill of Amiibos is the hunt.
07/04/16, 03:13
Wow, I'm surprised ya'll havn't been posting about the currently released amiibos! I just picked mine up. The Super Mario series second release amiibos are really cute.Got all of them: Daisy, Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Waluigi, Wario Rosalina and...wait for it...drumroll please.....Glow in the dark Boo!!! Man, he is really cool in glow form.

Who all else picked these up? Also, I have all three Zelda series amiibos preordered already. They release Dec 2nd: Ocarina of Time Link, Wind Waker Link and Zelda Combo & 8-bit style Link.

Edit: Hey Dr Fink, time to update the OP with pics!!
11/05/16, 13:34   Edit:  11/05/16, 13:37
I will be getting a few of them, Boo and Daisy most definitely.
11/05/16, 15:55
I'm not very interested in the latest batch of Mario amiibo, though that is a cool idea to make the Boo glow. Makes it a little more special since Boo is pretty plain-looking.

I'll probably grab one of the 8-bit Link ones at some point, but that's the only one of the recent ones that interests me.
11/05/16, 20:41
I'll certainly update the thread when I have the free time to do so, but I was able to take a picture of my newest amiibo… all seven!


Here's the kicker, I only had to pay $33.03 for all of those. Amazon totally did me a solid! It was some months back that I noticed the situation… I had pre-ordered all seven on June 14th when they were first available to. Weeks later I saw my order had some unique qualities. For some reason, Amazon said my Donkey Kong, Daisy, Rosalina, and Boo were all $0.00. The Wario, Waluigi, and Diddy Kong were only $10.39. I understood the latter… there being a discount and all for pre-ordering through Amazon. So I saved 20% on those. But the other four… what was going on? In the end, I let it ride out to see if it would ever correct itself but low and behold I was only charged the low price for all of them. Today, over seven e-mails, I was told about the savings I had. Something must have happened with the pre-order price guarantee and I was privy to a price reduction of 100% on four of my seven amiibo. What a stellar deal!

@DrFinkelstein

They've been released? Huh? What happened here, why didn't anyone say anything (prior)?
11/06/16, 23:21
@DrFinkelstein

Now that's a proper looking Wario.
