Went to GS earlier this evening and asked the guy if they know if they're getting Shulk. He was clueless, asked me who Shulk was so... Anyone know if any GS will be officially getting more than what is already on preorder? Wondering if I should camp out in the morning lol.

 

On a separate note, I asked if he's taking Preorders for the Mario Party 10 bundle and he said yes so I slapped $5 down just in case. Wonder if he preordered the right one for me...

Yeah, funny how that works when no one in the US has had the pre-orders up yet.

Best Buy just had preorders for the Super Mario Amiibos up, and they sold out in ~45 minutes.  Maybe you missed it because you weren't online and checking while they were available, which would be my point.  Wave 4 is going to be worse, because more people who actually want the characters will be trying for them in addition to the people getting them all and scalpers.  People who wanted general Mario characters have had months to get their fix, and those are the ones still on the store shelves.

Wave 4 does seem like it will be a blood bath. I'm already assuming Shulk will be about impossible to find in the wild, not looking forward to having to scrounge for another 6.

Why don't you guys just preorder at Walmart? All except Toad are available. Is it because you're waiting to use the GCU?

wave 4 is smash but it confusing some people I think cause a lot of uninformed GameStop reps been referring to the mario party amiibos as wave 4 to customers which is why at one point people were talking about wave 4 pre orders available at GameStop when in fact it was just the mario party amiibos

God damnit, I play Destiny for a little bit and miss all the SMB preorders at Best Buy. They'll probably go back up for sale while I'm sleeping.

Whenever they announce the next gen of Pokemon I bet they'll have a full line of Pokemon amiibos, especially since the new 3DS XL supports Amiibos.. that will be a nightmare.

Instead of going to GS to get a code for a Pokemon you'll have to go to GS and buy the Amiibo.

just in case your not joking the reserve on the receipt says Mario party amiibo bundle or something to that effect on it. It literally says amiibo.

I'm 99% sure UPS stole my FedEx TRU package. When I went to pick up both my packages after work, only the UPS one was there. FedEx delivered first at 2:00 PM so...

If you have a Lucario coming through FedEx from TRU then make sure you monitor your package through the internet or text updates.

On a brighter note, I got one of my Lucario from the TRU eBay order.
 

From my experience, what FedEx does is that they send it to the city, then they drop it off at USPS and they deliver to your place. I've had many missed shipments because of this.

With TRU.com, they sent us FedEx tracking numbers. I'm assuming FedEx delivered it as well.

Gotta look at the method still since both UPS and FedEx have fancy names for giving it to the post office to deliver.  That's how my TRU shipment went and probably everyone else's.

I think the method you're describing is FedEx Smartpost, which is pretty much their version of UPS Mail innovations. Slower shipping followed by transfer to post office for delivery.

Was it TRU.com or TRU ebay and did you already receive yours? FedEx.com has mine marked as delivered... I got my TRU ebay package right on time but TRU.com is the one I'm missing.

Edit:
This is what FedEx.com says:

TRU.com.  Double checked and it was called SmartPost, all the way at the bottom of the FedEx tracking.

i don't think any.  They didn't mention it in the Direct and did for wave 3 and there's half as many in wave 4.

Two questions:

1. The GS site has the DK Amiibo listed for $10, but it's sold out. Does this price apply to in-store as well?

2. Has anyone seen Rosalina in the wild since sales went live last week? Only store exclusive I'm missing 😞

In-store today in most cases, online sales look like they'll open up on Friday, based on the way Gamestop has the Shulk page.

Heads up on some common Amiibos; looks like we might be seeing a permanent price drop on Yoshi, DK, and Peach. Best Buy, Wal-Mart, and Game Stop have each of the figures for $9.99.

Not sure if you saw the edited portion of my post but this is what FedEx.com says:

I'm SOL right? lol...

Also just checked my TRU ebay package and that only says USPS on it, no FedEx logos or anything.
