I got the line alert for the Norway place that has wave 4 and 5 up for pre sale. Oh wow, that took a while to get the login to work on a phone.

I may have messed up my address. Oh well.

I ordered a bunch and total it ended up about $22.78 per amiibo. Not bad, I guess :-k

 

Anyone have experience with these guys and pre-ordering from them?

I have no idea right now as I had to put in an Oslo postal code to even register. I shall wait to see, but if it doesn't work, I'm not too worried. I will contact them when I get home.

By the way, 0025 is for Oslo. Try that and you should be able to register.

I tried to order:

Olimar
Dr. Mario
Bowser Jr.
Geeninja
Jiggly puff

It came out to about $150. I can take a $30 average.

I ordered a greninja and a jigglypuff off that Norwegian website. Came out to 25 dollars a piece, that isn't so bad.

Interesting stuff about amiibo:

 

http://myamiibonews....ibo-world-wide/

 

Nintendo actually supplied the U.S. and Canada with the most amiibo. Looks like our market actually does get the preferential treatment. So popular that it makes it look like our market is getting the shaft when it isn't. Other countries most likely get their amiibo wave first because it smaller and easier to fulfill than the bigger U.S. and Canada Market.

I feel like this can be filed under the #pleaseunderstand BS... When I can go to Walmart and grab Ike instead of countless people from oversees showing pics like Ike is common then I'll believe some Nintendo pie charts

Could be that amiibo are not as popular over there as it is over here. The allocated number supports it and I doubt Nintendo will feed false information to their investor. Also those pics could be on just on launch days where they are well stocked at the beginning. I read multiple stories of people going to or living in Japan or Europe and not seeing the same stock as the pics you described. I doubt you can't just walk into a Japanese or European store right now and pick up an Ike or Little Mac right now. They are most likely sold out over there too.

Doesn't help that these fucking things are impossible to get here, so people import them. It's official, Amiibo is a worldwide "screw you" - courtesy of Nintendo

YesAsia is finally shipping their pre-orders placed back on March 17th. The cancellation was my second order which was placed 27 minutes later after posting the links here (which is completely understandable).

 

My first order shipped! There is hope for CAGs who placed their pre-orders early enough.

Can confirm, received the email this morning that translated to We have deleted your orders. Cause: CUT IN ORDERS - UNABLE TO SUPPLY 

 

At least they didn't sugar coat it.

According to some posts I was reading on reddit yesterday it was banned from the site and so was the "creator" or "curator" of the site who kept posting about it.  I'll throw a link up once I get a chance or you can just check it out on reddit.
