Doubt it lol. Why underproduce something they have been pushing so hard (Especially with the new 3DS model supporting it).

 

If anything I'll just buy the few that actually might be super popular (Marth, Link, etc)

They're up on AZ too. I'd rather preorder there and forgo the 10% savings to avoid a revolving charge

 

Edit: Appears Marth, Villager and Wii Fit Trainer are OOS on AZ

I've never been so excited for a Nintendo product since Reggie announced the Wii Wheel.

Oddly enough the Pit and Zelda figures revealed earlier are nowhere to be found.

yeah I would want both of those.

oh well I at least preordered link, samus, and pikachu for now. not sure I will keep them but I don't feel like gamers club should work on these (they are accessories not software) so I locked them in before they figure that out.

Eh - GCU has worked on Skylanders and Disney Infinity characters since the beginning so I don't see why they would shut these out unless they change the policy for all 3.

Smash Bros better be the greatest game ever. You need a converter, a new(old) controller, and now compatible amiibos to get the full experience.

My advice would be to wait buying these.   Anyone who's grabbed Skylanders or Disney Infinity knows that they'll ALWAYS do Buy 2, Get 1 or B1G1 or other variations all the time later.

 

Paying MSRP or grabbing all of them with just the GCU will be a mistake if your patient.

Pre-ordered Link and Fox from Amazon and Marth from Bestbuy. I don't expect the whole roster to be released as Amiibos, but it would be nice if they came out with more down the road.

What exactly do these do in Smash Bros, do we know? And I agree, wait to buy. It's the same story every time with both Skylanders and Disney Infinity. If you buy at full price (with a very few exceptions) you're throwing away money.

I'd be interested if we had any idea what these do. We know that they will do something in Smash Bros and something lesser in Mario Kart, but I don't want these without knowing what they do for these games.

According to someone in the amazon questions, here's what was listed for usage:

 

the figures will work in the following way:

- They can be used in multiple games (some that are as of yet unreleased or even announced)
- In Smash Bros. for the Wii U you will be able to place the figure on the GamePad to pull that character into the game. When you do so he will become a computer controlled fighter
- You can fight this fighter with your currently selected character, or place him on your team to fight along side you
- The more you use a particular figure the higher his/her level will be (up to 50)
- When the figures level up they become more powerful and can even unlock new abilities (some of which can be customized to your style of play)
- The data of the character in game will be stored within the physical figure itself and can be brought to a friends house, where you can challenge him to beat your custom character
- The figures are NOT playable in Smash Bros. and you will not be able to use it within particular modes (specifically online, but I'm not 100% sure about this)

I'm a little confused about functionality. The New 3DS isn't supposed to come out this year in the U.S.? Amiibos come out at end of this year? If they come out, no way to use on Wii U or 3DS at this point? Something has to happen...

These are Nintendo products so I doubt there will ever be much of a sale.

Where have you been? Wii u & everything associated with it have been bucking that notion hard since launch.
