I have extras of Little Mac and Diddy Kong, I'm looking to trade them for Marth, Villager or Wii Fit Trainer if anyone is interested.  Drop me a PM.  

 

Back to your regularly scheduled thread.

Back to your regularly scheduled thread.

Translation: I bought many Diddy Kongs and Little Macs and want to get $50 figures for them. Now less people in my area will be able to get these because I bought them all.

Hey be nice to the guy. You know if it wasn't him, it would have been someone else anyway.

This is going to get "real" once we see two individuals fighting for an amiibo in store.

If I cannot track down a dam Diddy Kong figure. It is on Nintendo. Two things are going to happen.

1. Going to make my own amiibos
2. My wallet will just be filled with money

This is just like that Special Edition PS4 Fiasco. Makes me sick to my stomach. Ridiculous.

All of these people talking about buying multiples to sell, make bank, and I'm just sitting here, wanting them for myself.

I bought 1 extra Diddy Kong and 2 extra Little Mac, enough to trade for the figures I missed out on.  Last time I checked $12.99 + tax is a lot cheaper than $50.  Do the math, bruh.

The misses found out last night that there was three villagers and one marth at a tru about thirty minutes away from me last night at one am while picking me up a zelda and extra little mac in case my best buy order falls through. I got off work at 4 am, accidentally slept in past thirty minutes from when they open and I called the store. First thing the man said was that they are sold out of all the new ones and I asked him about Villager and Marth since those will complete my set (also need to get one for my nephew as the only game he plays is animal crossing on the DS). Looks like it will be amazon.fr for me, if anyone is also thinking of doing amazon for M/V, PM me since shipping is pretty standard whether its one or over four items.

Marth from any country is going for $50+ on ebay so if you really can get them for $16 from French amazon then do it.

So what your asking for is someone to trade for a figure that seems to be long and gone since it's release day that seems to sell for quite a bit for a few figures that haven't been released widely and only creating a false demand because of speculation and resellers?!?!

went to work today and typed in the dpci for marth and we had one sitting in the back and i bought it. lucky!

Technically, you can get fired for doing that, so be careful (this coming from a guy who worked at Target for years).

Holy shit, the hoarding is real. Went up to TRU to grab Donkey Kong and Zelda to finish both waves respectively (As long as Amazon and BB don't screw me), and saw some dude with like 4 of each Diddy and LM in his cart, and absolutely none left on the shelves. Still like 4+ pegs left of Zelda though.

 

Not really sure what the heck Nintendo was planning, but it feels a bit ridiculous for a major store to run out of these in barely a day and not being able to restock them.

God damn that is sad.  I don't know who to blame more.  Nintendo for under producing some figures or hoarders for blatantly buying stuff up and feeding this "rarity" and "demand".  Now obviously there is a lot of real demand, but this rarity thing is starting to get to me.  Things should become rare naturally after many years, not whatever the heck this situation is.

 

I will stick with my one of each (hopefully depending on that japanese Marth preorder I made 9 days ago) and never sell them.  I actually want these stupid things for some stupid reason.  Must be nice to not care and just buy them to flip.

Went to Target last night, they had a full stock of all wave 1 (except the 3 discontinued ones) and full stock of 3 wave 2 (about 10+ zelda, 6+ diddy, and 3-4 little mac). I go today and the shelf is 75% empty of all figures, all new ones gone. Went to TRU, GS, and Bestbuy and they were just about the same way except GS and TRU had some zeldas. Crazy. I picked up my Wii Fit Trainer I ordered for in store pickup at BB, they put the giant sticker on the plastic part of it so it came off easily.

All you resellers can suck it!!!!

 

I bought the rest today since I couldn't wait for a good price or descent sale since a false demand is being created. I left Kirby though, that one seems to be plentiful no matter where I go.

Managed to pre order Meta Knight, Shulk and I had to wait for when TRU opened pre orders again for the third time on Lucario and managed to secure two pre orders for him. Now to wait for Rosalina and Wave 3 pre orders are complete.

Well obviously not right now, in the future.  And only if they do become rare... If not, they will make great post Holiday gifts.

I'm going to go to a few Target's and Walmart's tomorrow morning to look for these.

Keep in mind that Best Buy should be updating their site with a B1G140%Off shortly. Chances are it will glitch and allow it to work for amiibos for a short time. Might be worth it for people who haven't started collecting yet.

Finally caved in and bought a pair since TRU is doing that special and got Zelda and Fox. I like collecting small figures/vinyls in general, so I'll keep these in my collection. I went with what you guys seemed a bit uncommon ATM so down the road I can just grab the more common ones. I enjoy see through plastic to keep them untouched/unopened. If anything the quality reminds me of Formation Arts, but just a couple notches down.

Tempted to order marth and wft from Amazon France. I know the writing on the bottom of the Japanese figures is different from the us. Anyone know if the European figures also have any difference on the bottom of the figures themselves?

I'm only going to collect ones that come from series that have some sort of hold over me. So I'm pretty much getting any Mario, any LOZ, and Donkey Kong, and Star Fox, any Kirby, and any ORIGINAL pokemon. I don't need the new pokemon. Oh and if I can find Marth for a decent price then I'll do Fire Emblem

So what you're saying is you need the hard to find rare amiibos.  :rofl:  :rofl:

Pretty much. As I said before, I'm not going out of my way to hunt any of these down and I'm definitely not paying a premium to get them. They'll find their way to me at a decent price eventually.

Found a Diddy Kong and a Zelda at a Target today. Diddy sold fine, Zelda said street date 12/14 and they refused to sell it to me. Went to a TRU and got Zelda. C'mon Target, step your game up.

I wish I shared your optimism.

I hope some get restocked, but I doubt it.

I just find it hard to believe that some of these will NEVER get restocked. Amiibo has been a thing for, what, not even a month now? I think it's just the holiday shopping madness that has everybody freaked out about the availability of these things. If they eventually come down in price or are made available again, cool. If not, I won't be upset about it.
