Amazon has some from 26.50 of the reprints not sure if they will ship in time for the birthday though since they are all from Japanese sellers.

Ill believe it when I see it.

Because WFT is pretty common in other regions outside of NA. Pit is rare everywhere.

Then I would imagine that they would have reprinted him with Mac/Falcon... but maybe they just didn't have the production capacity.

Thanks to both litepink and daver16!  I feel dumb for not even thinking of checking the US Amazon site.  Whoops.  It may not arrive in time for his birthday, but he'll love it when it does arrive.

Thanks for the info. I wish Best Buy did something like this to stack onto GCU.

My very first Japanese import just arrived. I'm super impressed that it only took (3) business days via EMS. For those who are considering importing these items, here's the price breakdown:

(4) amiibo $43USD

(3) wiii remotes $97USD

EMS/Japan Post with tracking and signature confirmation $33USD

A friend in Japan purchasing these locally and preparing them for shipment, priceless!

Its super hard to buy Wii-motes off of eBay now too, the Wii-Mote bootleg market is insane, and they are so so good at it now.

Doesn't Nintendo still officially produce Wiimotes? Since many Wii U games use them?

I've been waiting over 2 years now for those Mario/Luigi/Peach wiimotes to drop in price -- just refused to pay full MSRP and can't use GCU on 'em.  Cheapest I ever saw them was $35 at Target one time I think... can't believe they haven't gone on "clearance" anywhere ever yet.

I found a few peach and mario ones at Kmart when they were closing down for roughly $30. They are probably picked clean at this point but it might be worth checking if you are close to one.

Doesn't Nintendo still officially produce amiibos?  Since many Wii U games use them?

lol I think it's hilarious a question like this has to be asked especially in an amiibo thread.  When you actually have to ask question like this I don't see how anyone can argue that Nintendo hasn't screwed up royally.  But seriously Wii Remotes are everywhere, so AFAIK yes.  Though, interestingly enough, I haven't seen the white Wii remote on sale anywhere in a long, long time so I question whether or not it was discontinued.

Since the Wii U uses only the Wii Remote Plus, I don't think they still make regular ones anymore.  I've only ever see the Plus remotes new in stores.

WiiU can use regular WiiMotes too, and they do appear to have stopped making non-plus ones.

Saw this on reddit, Amiami has Villager and Little Mac in stock at MSRP, but it's for japanese customers only so you'll need a Tenso account (or other import service) to get them.

They stopped making the standard Wii remote and the WM+ dongle forever ago.  That's old news.

 

Not sure what happened to the white WM+ remotes though.

I would hope so. The damn Wii U still comes with a wiimote sensor bar packed in

It comes with an amiibo reader packed in too, and look at how that's turned out  ;)
