Kirby character.

 

Also, over the next few weeks I'm going to have to swing by Best Buy and pick these up. >.< My poor wallet

Jesus... that dual cannon Samus sold for $2500? Nintendo should just make a few more and sell them directly.

If Nintendo did that it would devalue the dual cannon Samus and who ever paid 2,500 for it would be super upset. The reason that it sold for so much is the fact that it was a miss print, many miss prints sell for a lot of money to collectors of all sorts.

I spoke to a Nintendo retail rep today at best buy who was restocking amiibos.

He told me the marth and villager figures are harder to find because retailers ordered less of them specifically. More will be available around the time of wave 2 which he said was next week, however there's no official street date and they will just "be on shelves next week".

So, I suggest preordering to avoid another marth scenario if you really want them.

He also joked (without me bring it up) that he "didn't have any dual cannon samus figures" so Nintendo is aware of that situation.

Today I got peach, Fox and pikachu - fresh from the shipment box each for $10.32. I love GCU.

Still waiting on my marth, villager, link and Wii trainer which are coming in the mail.

That really wasn't the point of what I said. Nintendo already said they plan to make variants, so why not make variants of dual cannon Samus? Even if it devalues it, there will still be lots of people willing to pay tons of money for one based on the bids of that eBay auction. And why would Nintendo give two shits about some guy who paid $2500 for a defect? That was his choice, they never advertised that as a one off or a variant, or anything. :-|

Figures, given how BBY seemed to get them in and out of stock all the time. Hopefully there'll be a better sale on these soon, something that stacks with GCU.

If you have an Amex there is a $5 off $25 or greater purchase in store at Toys R Us, combine that with the $10 off 3 Amiibo's and you get three for ~$29 after tax. Seems pretty reasonable since at least in my area Toys R Us still has some stock unlike any other stores.

Even though the defective Samus is worth a ton of money, I'm still skeptical it actually sold for that much. Sometimes fake bidders will just screw with a listing. The question is if the seller ends up relisting it. That's the only way to know for sure.

I'd be real surprised if Samus sold for that much.  It would seem to me someone drove the auction up to make it popular and can cash in on the notoriety.

 

That said, I've been to 15 or so stores in the last week, even before the auction story broke, and in half of them I can't even find Samus.  Only one store had Marth and maybe 2 stores had Villager.

I see samus everywhere, no defects though.

I think it is something someone made and resealed.

It does raise questions.  http://nintendonews....multiple-parts/  I don't think there's any conclusive way to know for sure though.

I think I've been to only one Best Buy that had the Paypal option on the payment kiosk. Might try visiting that one today. Do you have to do anything special other than sign in with your Paypal info to get the offer?

i still don't see how these are useful or really worth anything. Even as just figures i feel the quality is too crap to be 13 dollars.

Link, Wii trainer and marth arrived today.
Take a guess whick one is all banged up and crushed, bent and torn.

I have been having a lousy week with purchases being damaged or defective.

Yesterday I bought 2 Simpson's DVD sets from Wal-Mart ($9.99 each) both sets are missing the episode guide books.

Kinda pissed off.

^^^I've had Best Buy actually fold the top of the cardboard over so that a Disney Infinity figure would fit inside a smaller box! Toys R Us has sent me figures where they Scotch taped the blister pack back onto the cardboard. That's really unprofessional and even worse than when they just throw stuff loose inside a box. I had to stop ordering figures online because of so many problems.

I did the same thing after getting badly folded Infinity and Amiibo figures from both Best Buy and Amazon.  Going forward, I will just risk buying them on release day at the store instead of dealing with all the return headaches.

I really wish they would announce when more are coming out. I need to scratch the itch of Duck Hunt Dog and Ness.

Also, I dunno if this was posted before, but Wave 2 is coming out the 14th

Just preordered shulk. I'm not sure if i should preorder lucario, not really into pokemon but if the rumored pokken fighters comes out on the wiiU, i will be extremely pissed if it uses amiibos and lucario is hard to find by that time.

Not trying to raise alarm or anything, but I went to my local Best Buy to pick up my main [Yoshi], even though my rewards account/GCU details were entered/confirmed, I wasn't getting the GCU discount. I questioned it, he said he wasn't sure and he'd ask a manager, I pulled up the website, put one in my cart, and logged in with the same account. By the time he got back, he said he didn't think they were supposed to do it because "only on software" or whatever, but I showed him my phone and he manually price corrected. I don't know if this was just an isolated incident, but just a heads up that you might run into bumps in store.

Please let me know if I'm wrong though.

I bought 2 in store before black friday and they discounted normally. I think Best Buy is having issues in general still with all of their order systems.

Exact same thing happened to me today. The guy looked clueless when I asked him about it. I told him I'll just order online. Cheaper tax that way for me anyways

I've received the discount online and in store. But I agree, it shouldn't work. I've been buying them up faster because it is working.

GCU applies to these just as it does on Disney Infinity and Skylanders.
