It has been dying a slow death for the past couple of weeks. Now that Dreamer and Fallange left.... it is dead ;)

I guess nobody missed me leaving it either? Fuck you guys.  I'll just post the videos of my dog humping my leg here:  ;)

I saw it from the beginning but was never able to add to cart. its almost as if Amazon just put a few up at a time. This kind of nonsense is exactly what I expected the Marth restock to be like. What's the point Nintendo.

Just got a Marth from Amazon US, after fighting through flaky 1-Click and all...I'll take it!

 

EDIT: And they charged me for 2-day shipping even though I have Prime, so I changed the shipping speed to 1-day, then 5-day so I can get free shipping + $1 credit.

Just had a dream that I went to Target on 5/29 and they gave me a World of Nintendo Diddy Kong toy rather than Jigglypuff amiibo and I woke up in a panic.

Amiibo shortage nightmares are real.

Did anyone get an email from YesAsia saying they couldn't verify payment? They are asking me to send a picture of the front/back of my credit card or send them a copy of my statement. 

 

Don't really feel comfortable doing that. I've had authorization issues before but usually, they just ask me to contact my CC company and then try again.

That sounds by unsafe. Do you have PayPal?


Also, I'm on LINE, anyway to get in on the alert?

Sounds shady.  Also, do not send a copy of your credit card through unencrypted email as it's not safe.

 

At this point I would just tell them to cancel the order.  Amiibos are not worth credit card fraud/identity theft.

they did that to me when I ordered Ness and a couple others like a month+ ago,  so i just let the order die.. I wasn't going to do that, either...

Ok, this is definitely sketchy... 

 

I had 3 orders with YesAsia. One for Ness and one for Villager, from back when they initially put these up, and then the recent one for a Ness + Lucina. The recent one's pre-authorization charge is still visible on my credit card. No notices of fraudelent charges or anything from my CC company either. 

 

I get that many people have received their orders just fine, but I don't understand why I'd need to do this... especially since the pre-authorization went through fine.

The line alert is a joke now. People posting nsfw images, and chatting

In order for groups like that to work well you need to kick the entirety of its members and reform it every month or two.

I have ordered CDs and crap from Yesasia several times over the years.  If it's the site itself you're questioning, I can say they are safe, there's nothing to worry about.

I don't question the trust-worthiness of the site... but sending copies of your CC or bank statement via email is simply not a good idea.

 

I reached out to them asking if I can just pay via PP but no response yet. Is the CS for their US operation located here? Or over in... wherever the main offices are?

I have ordered a few stuff from yes asia before. No problem for me. I'm not sure why they would ask you for your bank statement. They are located in Hong Kong

Think of it more like a hibernation. It may wake few times before May 29th, but that day it will be fully functioning again.

Did anyone hear any news about the IKE and King DEDEDE gamestop in-store pre-orders?  I'm still waiting on them from pre-orders made before the 12/29 cutoff.  Supposedly they are coming late spring, hopefully before the next wave lol.

Well I thought I was safe on having to pickup Splatoon, but I guess the marketing push has hit Disney XD and Cartoon Network, so now both my kids want it. "It will be hard" "Its online only" "there is no story levels" They don't care, just want it.

 

What really sucks is I can come home with the game no problem, but didn't pre-order the amiibos, now I've got to tell them we won't have them. Really dumb for Nintendo not to overstock on the Splatoon line of amiibo if they want the game to sell well. Maybe there will definitely be a round two for them within a month.
