Anyone see the new AC amiibo?


Blathers, Resetti, Celeste, and Kicks.


Totally want the Resetti one, though I had hoped it would be of him bursting out of the ground angry.

AKA the most pointless app ever.

Isn't it? It's like the Masterpieces of Brawl. Play a classic game for 2 minutes and that's it. I guess it's a little better in that it tries to show you some of the highlights of the game by giving you different sections you can tap into but it is just a marketing demo tool to make you buy the game like Masterpieces was.

I finally gave it a chance since I've got all these Animal Crossing Amiibo cards. I did 4 taps and got Super Metroid, Metroid, Super Mario World and Zelda 2. I could have unlocked all the games but that's a pretty winning list and I just didn't see the point in going on and unlocking them all. Still, I got to fight Kraid in Super Metroid, fough and beat Kraid in Metroid for the first time and beat levels 1-2, 1-1 and unlocked the yellow blocks before getting the boot in Super Mario World.

There was a wall of Shulks at my local TRU so he's no longer a Gamestop exclusive.

Yeah, Shulk and Lucario are no longer exclusive. Hoping for Rosalina since I don't see her "Super Mario" line releasing anytime soon.

I was able to get Captain Olimar and Zero Suit Samus at my local TRU. Well, it's 10 miles away since the one closer to me closed. Plus I was able to get some World of Nintendo figures! Yeah!

Hey guys, are you ready for store-exclusive restocks? I hope you are

Mii Fighters, Villager restock and Mega Yarn Yoshi are TRU exclusives.

Went to a Gamestop to buy something to tide me over on concole for a while. Instead I saw the only Blue Yarn Yoshi amiibo ang got that. They had 2 pink yarn yoshis but only had money for one.  I didn't know the yarn yoshis were out even. But it is adorable.

They did have Chibi Robo.

I cannot get over my excitement for Roy's amiibo. It looks glorious. Hopefully we will see a rerelease of Lucina and Robin to go with it.





Picked up Mewtwo yesterday and Falco is next week.

I swore up and down that I wouldn't get a whole bunch of Amiibo when this thing began. I figured I'd end up with three.

I now have 17 and I know I'm getting at least 4 more.

Welp. (And it's not even the most shameful addiction of 2015.)

I currently have Lucina, Palutena, Samus, Zero Suit Samus, Shulk, Classic Color Mario, and the Splatoon Three Pack. I'd really like to get Roy, but being GameStop exclusive is bogus. Hopefully, I can snag Ryu. I predict Cloud is going to be impossible to find.

I have Samus, Olimar, and the retro 3-pack. I still want to get Fox, and maybe one of the yarn Yoshis or retro Marios.

Ugh, I said I would only get my favorite characters, and I already have 25.  There's still so many more I want, too. :(

I've been pretty vocally against Amiibo figures because they aren't good value and aren't well used in games.
We have 8 sitting on our shelf - although only 5 that I care about and the rest due to kids.


Saw the Animal Crossing figures today in a local store. Rather liked the Tom Nook figure and almost bought it. Also like KK Slider - but not enough to buy a three-pack of figures just to get it.


Still wish there was a better reason to own outside of just collecting.

Agreed.  I like the Splatoon content, but it's not as good as just playing online.

I had sworn that I wouldn't get any, and I have five. Granted, I bought only one meself, but still...

I don't. It's bad enough that little bits and pieces of every game are gated off by these things, I certainly don't want that stuff to get more significant.

Ugh, I was hoping I would be done with these guys after I came back from Japan, where they're relatively cheaper.

I have Mario, Link, Samus, Zero Suit, Bowser, Shulk, Wooly World Yoshi, Lucina, and Charizard, with a mint Bowser Jr. from Japan I'm giving away through my podcast.

...I still want Game and Watch, Duck Hunt, Famicom ROB, Olimar, and Ness... These things are gonna drive me nuts.

Fear not. Current rumor is a non-store-exclusive Ness, Gold Mario, and Meta Knight restock along with a US release of Famicom ROB. People are getting a ton of info from the amiibo kiosk updates.


And I wouldn't be surprised if you could find the Retro Three and Olimar in the wild. There are reports of Gamestops with plenty still available and I have seen Olimar in stores as well.


Amiibo has finally hit it's supply stride it seems.

Mega Yarn Yoshi, on the other hand...

Finally getting Mewtwo on Friday, and Shoval Knight preorders just opened on Amazon.ca so I snagged that too. That's two down.

I kind of want Mewtwo. He's an old Smash/RBY favorite.

The thing is, I want the Retro three but I like ROB's Famicom deco more than the NES version. I absolutely love the Game and Watch pose gimmick though, and Duck Hunt is adorable...
