So what ever happened to all those chatroom pics of people "confirming" that they'd go live on the 17th? (or was it 27th?) Guess that wasn't very reliable :)

Seems like all them are currently available if anyone lives over there or have friends that can ship them.

If someone happen to get extra Dark Pit or Jigglypuff I don't mind paying the extra fees+cost to ship them to me.

They've also used that exact same Bowser pose in a Mario Galaxy gashapon figure set from early 08.  And the Luigi, Peach, and Toad figures are also taken from other sources.  To my knowledge, the only original design on that entire figure is the Mario/Yoshi.

What was the exact weight of the package and how much were you charged for the shipping in yen? I'm assuming you picked registered SAL?

I'm wondering why yours is so cheap when others are coming out to about $16/Amiibos under the same conditions.

The exact weight of the package was 1000g and I did pick registered SAL. It came out to 1490¥ shipping plus 600¥ handling so 2090¥ total. If I did the faster option it would have been 3000¥ total.

I ordered 5 figures (skipped wario), but if I did 6 it would have been even less per figure.

Nevermind, I just got an email from Tenso telling me my package was too big for SAL.  The weight was fine, but the dimensions were too big.  I had to change to EMS, but that's no problem since it will be here in a few days rather than a couple weeks.  Total shipping was $25.14 so my total was $51.48 for amiibos plus $1.53 foreign transaction fee plus $25.14 shipping which equals $78.16 ($15.63 per amiibo).  I think that's probably more in line with everyone else's cost.

Thanks, but I think those will be the most common this wave.

Did you order on the first day or spamming the site until you pushed an order in? I see the latter being the reason why.

My jigglypuff orders from 4/8 are in tact. I think the first time Jigglypuff went up, on 4/2, it was in error. The window was really small and now the orders are being cancelled.

My 4/8 orders are also intact. Got scared for a second then I remembered I missed the first order window. Really need these to come through as the extras are going out as trades for the other exclusives I did miss.

Target just fucked me as well. I only ordered 1 jiggly and paid with paypal. No reason whatsoever that it shouldve been cancelled.

I think it was because Paypal has a 30 day payment policy or something.

Looking at reddit posts, it's an issue for those who used PayPal.  If PayPal sees that the merchant did not post a charge within 30 days, the order will get cancelled.  It's now 30 days past 4/2, so that's why only those orders were cancelled.

 

I'd expect another mass cancellation on 5/8 for those who ordered with PayPal on 4/8.

In other words you're glad other peoples honest orders got cancelled so you can take advantage of it. You're a real pal there, buddy. Smh

Yeah I'm super stoked as well! Now that others have been canceled, there will hopefully be more opportunities for me to get an order in!

 

...to replace my canceled order.

Then that's probably the reason why your pre-order is intact and will remain safe.  :pray:

If you used PayPal, you're screwed. People are also reporting similar type cancellations with Greninja from TRU.

Is this a specific problem with target and PayPal or is this a problem anyone would have with PayPal more than 30 days out. I paid for lucario with PayPal and I think it was more than 30 days before the order shipped. Of course there was that weird TRU cancellation thing so that may have saved my order.
