You can always pre order. Then cancel if you get the NA version. Or hold onto your foreign model until you /hopefully get the NA version then sell the foreign.

You are completely right, although knowing me, I'd probably never sell :P

Yeah but then it sounds like you'd have to start collecting a series for the foreign ones too!

That'd be awesome but I'm definitely not going to go through the same hell twice or thrice :P

Was just wondering, but did NWS end up having some Shulk amiibo set aside for today's Xenoblade launch? You think that would've been a neat thing to do for people who were picking up the game, at least your chances for them to go to people who are actually going to use them is higher, right? Also, did anyone happen to pick up an extra "launch poster" that they wouldn't mind sending my way for a few bucks?? :D

You have to buy the game to get the poster.

Yeah, but maybe someone got an extra poster, or wanted the game (and didn't pay less than MSRP - SHAME!!) but didn't want the poster.  Just figured I'd ask since I collect these posters.

Who are all of these people that just have to have these Gamecube adapters I always wonder?  As if there's millions of US die hard SSB fans from the Gamecube era or something.  Also, my Best Buy had six Majora's Mask 3DS sitting out last night.  Funny how no one cares about these things when they are suddenly available and flipper prices come down.

I guess I am lucky I do not care about the packaging. I would prefer all us but japanese packaging is ok with me. I should be able to snag a kirby and hopefully the other non-exclusive figures. greninja and ness however...I will be using my local comic/toy shop. the family that runs it has family back in japan who sends the figures. the mark up is usually just 10 dollars. so I feel a little better, but man I would like to be able to preorder everything in one transaction and move on.

 

as I explain the amazon story yesterday, my wife and daughter both had the same reaction. "it will be ok, these are just pieces of plastic". still though I want that plastic.

 

I noticed yesterday splatoon girl showed as preorder on best buy for a couple of minutes but it would give me an error each time I tried to add to cart.

Oh that is confusing.. I ordered thinking I got one, but now I look and it says call for availability. So apparently you can just order even if it isn't in stock. Bleh.

I didn't notice that the prices had dropped so much.  I'm pretty sure this guy didn't make any money depending on his tax rate.

exactly this is just like B&H Photo Incident remember that?

did you look at the details you can place a order but the item is not available it says. If you were here couple months ago B&H Did the same thing and had everyone money on hold for the longest time before everyone had to call and cancel. Alot these smaller retailers dont know when these kind of things are discontinued.

Nah, just a crappy forum software that doesn't show completed posts properly.  I wish, though.

Precisely.  I learned a long time ago that you don't order rare amiibos from these small time retailers that have no idea what they are doing.  They never come through and you're going to be disappointed and possibly inconvenienced with charges.  I'd recommend anyone else to not buy from them.

 

I even had one of my infrequently used credit cards compromised two months ago for the first time in over a decade and I'm pretty sure it was the one obscure amiibo site.

I can't believe how cheap Majora's Mask N3DS is.
