Show my wife pics of the Animal Crossing Amiibo - she thought they were gorgeous, and that Tom Nook was especially cute, but we agreed that they just weren't useful enough to justify the cost.  Unless they release a Spork Amiibo, in which case she will start collecting...

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.

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...


Some of the individual retro characters are dirt cheap on Amazon. I saw an import of Duck Hunt's solo package for $10 + Prime shipping a few days ago.

I think the retro packs are still well stocked... most gamestops in my area seem to have them on the shelf still.

I know stock is still uneven and there are some hard to find figures, but it really feels like Nintendo has upped their Amiibo game this holiday season and is providing much better availability.


Why say this?  I gave them crap when distribution was bad, it's only fair to compliment when things improve in (I think) a significant way.


Some might argue "too little too late", but since the actual in-game support is so weak I think it's fine. These are mostly for collectors as far as I can tell.

Apparently Gamestop kiosks have had the Roy figure removed from the lineup. My guess is that was supposed to be a part of the December Smash Direct. We may see the rest of the DLC characters revealed as well.

Since the Amiibo supply has been upped recently I just went nuts and started collecting them all. F anyone who tries to sell me anything for more than retail!

I'm just short Dedede, Rasalina and Luma along with Palutena. Anyone have any of these they are willing to sell or trade? I have one extra Charizard but could potentially get a ton of other things.

In a bit of awesome but weird marketing.  Be sort of cool if t here going to do the DLC characters to have Ryu Amiibo come out in a wave on February 16th.

I decided to preorder Chibi Robo on Amazon.  It'll be my second one along with Silver Mario.  I'm hoping to pick up the Splatoon 3 pack at some point for retail price.  I don't know if or when Nintendo will restock that one though.

The Splatoon pack is pretty plentiful in my area - it's been restocked for awhile.  Could have sworn it was on Amazon for a pretty good period of time too...

Me too.  Ike & Little Mac were all restocked at my local gamestops, so picked up a Little Mac as well.


All of them were in pretty good supply.

Tom Nook has dropped to $6 on Amazon. Mabel has dropped to $9. If Amiibo Festival drops to under 30 (it's currently $32) I'll probably bite and grab them all.

Watching the prices steadily drop is fascinating, amiibo festival is down to $31 now.

I think this just shows that Animal Crossing isn't as strong of a brand as some of the other games. Couple that with the amiibo 'market' falling out and a mediocre Wii U title and we have the current situation.

I have the entire Smash Bros line now. Well aside from whats current. I'm not sure if I should be pleased or ashamed.

I hope they retroactively apply it for those of us who already preordered. :(

Prime pre-order discounts don't qualify for price guarantee. If you pre-ordered before the discount you need to cancel and pre-order again. It hasn't sold out yet, so you can still do this.

Actually, you're good!

Do I get 20% off if I already pre-ordered the game?
Yes, the offer will be extended to all existing Prime member pre-orders.

Ok, I've made my first "just because it's there and it might be in short supply" purchase of an Amiibo with Shovel Knight.  Like the game, but didn't really plan on getting the amiibo.


I think i'm done with Amiibo for now until the eventual release of Ryu & Cloud.  My shame pile is too high at this point. (doesn't mean my wife won't buy this stuff, I guess).

Good news everyone! The Shovel Knight amiibo doesn't include the NFC blocker so you can scan the amiibo without removing him from the package.

You're still a heartless bastard for not setting your precious toy free from its plastic prison.
