So far, only Marth and Villager are different. I think the others are identical... so most of the figures are gonna become worthless due to the reprint.


I don't care about their worth. I just want a chance to own them.

Good, that is kind of the point.  I want the chance to buy them at discount, not hound the internet for 3 min preorder windows.

Hell, screw the discount, I'd settle for being able to buy them at MSRP + Tax.

I was hoping the original NIB NA Villagers would come down in price with the reprints that are happening.

I'm glad the original triology is different.

 

 

Lots of people in this thread did not preorder at launch and support nintendo until they saw they were a hot item. Those of us who wanted to support nintendo and went to GS and put down $5 for a figure should get the benefit of having a collectible.

 

 

If you guys don't really care about having the original, then the reprint should be good enough.

They likely will, but it probably won't be until they actually hit our stores here.  There's been no definitive word that we're getting a restock and when and how much, so scalpers (and collectors alike) aren't likely to just drop the price with no change in demand and no definitive change in supply.

I'd give my Little Mac amiibo to the kid who first discovered Little Mac in Smash Bros. or on the Wii, or hell, just wants to collect every amiibo over the adult who is going to make a profit from it in just a few short months.

So, I got a marth, but for some reason I was charged $8 shipping.  I can change the shipping speed, but none of my options are free.  I'm a prime member.  Should I call about it?

Go to your order, change shipping speed to 1-day, then change it back to 2-day.

 

That should fix it, it worked for me yesterday.  (I actually changed it to the No Rush shipping to get the $1 credit).

Man, I just want a LM and a Villager to actually /use/.

 

I'll keep looking out for the restock I suppose.

Thanks malagu.  tumbenhaur's solution did work, but I was worried about calling and them just canceling my order and trying again.  I'm glad to know they will adjust shipping without messing with the order.  

 

ARE YOU TAKING NOTES WALMART/BEST BUY/TARGET??????

I'm done with Marth. Amazon has found new ways to prevent me from getting one each time. Confirm my address, confirming my card (even while paying with gift card balance lol) saying they can't ship to my address (which they do several times a week lmao) oh well it's not meant to be. I'm going to open an amiibo charity. Anybody feel like donating? ;P

Wait, the reprints for Marth and Villager are going to be different?  Is there a picture somewhere?  Sorry, haven't been following this thread too much.

Was able to get a Greninja, Jigglypuff, and Pit from Amazon JP. My friend must hate me by now. I've sent him so many amiibo that he's had to ship me lol. I pay him the shipping costs through PSN cards.
