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 can order those two from best buy and pick them up from a local store for $21. Want me to nab them for you?

I can get behind that as well. Bowser's amiibos are very well done. Even his amiibo/Skylanders hybrid is good.

I'll be in Michigan next weekend, so I'll try to search while I'm there.
If I fail, I will definitely hit you up! Thanks a lot.

I got a Diddy in store..but that was a Christmas gift.

I still gotta finish the Mario Series myself. And those Throwback Zelda ones..

Pre-ordered the two 'hard to find' (according to a buddy at Gamestop) BOTW ones. The others? ..sigh.

You know, with gamers club unlocked at best buy, you get 20% off amiibo as well. It's a good deal.
02/21/17, 03:18

Yeah, I just joined when the Switch games went up for pre-order. I got the new Fire Emblem dual-pack for $19.99 (plus tax). Sweet deal.

Thanks to the holidays, I now have 15 of these silly things. What is happening to me?!
02/21/17, 21:48
@Mop it up

How many did you have before?

..Can you tell us more? I didn't even know there was one....whats the scoop?
02/22/17, 02:12
@DrFinkelstein Before the holidays? Hm, I want to say 7. I mean, I know these numbers are nothing for some of you, but considering I predicted just ending up with a couple, it's a lot!

@Mr_Mustache Best Buy's Gamers Club Unlocked

It's $30 for a two-year subscription, and it gets you 20% off all new games, 10% off all used games, and some other benefits. The discount also stacks with any sales and clearance they offer, with exception of Black Friday weekend in which case it does not apply to anything. Even though it just says "games," the 20% off also works on toys-to-life figures, which includes amiibo.

$30 isn't much for two years. If you bought only three games at $60 each during that time, you'd save money. I'd guess most of us here buy a lot more than that in two years. The downside for some is that it's physical games only, it does not work on eShop cards or download codes.

@Mop it up

HAHA!!, I meant the Fire Emblem pack. Sorry.. (Which I then remembered much later that it was on a Direct)

I appreciate all of your info though! (Related: I do have a Pro membership at GameStop, so I get my new games there.)
02/23/17, 01:17
@Mr_Mustache Oh, you mean you didn't know the Fire Emblem pack existed? Ah, thought you meant the deal. Ah well, it's good deal info to post here anyway.
02/23/17, 04:24
@Mop it up

Yes, I had forgotten about the two-pack. Thanks though.

Hows your collection?

Stumbled across (and bought) the Wolf Link Amiibo today. I didn't even know it was offered as a standalone!

Also: TONS of Lucinas, Samus', Pits, Ness'; what the hell is going on out there?!
03/02/17, 03:09
I meant to mention that I found DK and Diddy (SMB Series) at a Target in Michigan last weekend. They had lots! What the heck, Canada?
03/02/17, 03:23
Did anyone still need Gold Mario? Available on Toys R Us right now, and Amazon (upmarked), and I saw a lot of "rare" ones in my local GameStop earlier today, after seeing a lot of 'rare' ones at my other GameStop last week. Bonkers.

I think I'm gonna order the 'set' of the newer Super Mario Bros. series ones off of Amazon, get 'em all at once (marked down). Glad I got Guardian Day 1, but now I'm a bit worried about the OTHER Zelda series I bought none of. Wind Waker ones tough to find??
03/07/17, 01:33
I got a Wario and 8-bit link amiibo for $6 each from my local walmart trying to clear stock.
03/07/17, 03:07
I'm starting to fall into the amiibo wormhole. I was trying to get an uber wolf link amiibo, but I had to get a Zelda amiibo so I could heal up. While I was at it, I bought Gannondorf and Link to have a nice set.

Hopefully I don't liquidate all my assets to buy a bunch of amiibos
03/07/17, 14:16

I saw a BUNCH of Wolf Link Amiibo at my Target today. I went there looking for the WW Twin Set, and it wasn't..

I DID get a BOTW Zelda though on that visit. Nice.
03/08/17, 01:31
I just got my Guardian in the mail today. Holy crap it's amazing. Amazing. It's huge too!

I have all 5 of the BOTW amiibos now and don't regret any of them. Zelda is the best one, but the Guardian is really sweet too, and Link with the bow is also rad. So happy!
