The Amiibo community seemed much more genuine to the idea of collecting Amiibo that mattered to them personally, not others. I remember Twitter's post when TRU had Villager up for $18.99 (after shipping) on eBay and I passed on it because I don't give a damn about Villager...still don't!
Now on reddit and sometimes here, I see terms like "unicorn" and questions about rarity, and the absolute worst, the "trader" who hates the "scalper" because the scalper buys all the Amiibo so that the trader cannot buy up all the Amiibo to trade. Meanwhile, Nintendo can't pull it's head out of it's ass to make a decent profit from a corporate standpoint, so I fear they will take the negative feedback from angry fanboys and retailers and flood the market, which will obviously now kill the momentum created mostly by resale value.
I think the Amiibo community would have been better of if we didn't go mainstream to begin with. Then, out of the 20K posts maybe 150 of them were of actual useful information, and unfortunately on the new thread this post is just another of many that do not provide value (an actual Amiibo deal and link!).
What I've learned from all of this is that there are a few serious Nintendo nutjobs out there that really need to have their heads checked, as well as expend their gaming horizons. They think Nintendo is the one with problems.
Also, there are so many short-sighted people out there that cannot conceptualize that there would be no amiibo craze or conversation whatsoever if all 50 figures were readily available at the local toy store right now. Nintendo knows exactly what they are doing.
