Best buy in store doing some amiibos like silver Mario for 5 bucks. I saw splatoon singles and Dario but only got silver Mario from them.

So did Best Buy in store actually do preorders?

 

I have no idea. I would assume they close also but NWS gets gigantic lines for these. Gigantic even compared to other crap here in NY. 

I wouldn't mind making the trek at midnight or around that but I'm going to go there and wait for 5 to 6 hours before midnight. 

Good luck!  I might be going with a friend as well.


Can pickup official Nintendo merch (clothing, import stuff, PLUSHIES, etc) from Nintendo World Store in NYC with shopping bag.  PM inquiries!

 

Interested art/craft supplies (low to high end)?  PM me if interested!

I can't wait to see the NW line pictures next week. Sometimes I'm jealous that I'm not near there but then I realize I really don't want to wait in line for 6 hours and still be super far back from the store.

Line will form WAY before that across the street, I'm thinking possibly late Wednesday. If someone who didn't preorder and doesn't want to hunt down all the exclusives at individual stores, this could be very appealing.

That is absolutely perplexing. Lining up an hour or two early in front of any other store (Target, Best Buy, etc) will suffice to get these new amiibo.

 Not necessarily true. For the last wave the only people to get them in my area on release were the 6 people that camp out in their van the night before launch. For the Ike/Mega Man/ DDD release I went to TRU 2 hours early and was only 8th in line and ended up empty handed. I'm thinking about not even wasting my time next week.

Camping out... For a little plastic toy... This just blows my mind.

I hate to admit but I am completely addicted to these god damn things. However, I will never camp out overnight to save $15 or so when I could just buy it internationally, from a scalper or order online from a major retailer if I am lucky enough. I know this debate has gone on 100 times and this is the first and last time I will contribute to it.

Question for those who have TRU Greninja preordered online. Does yours say "On hold till 4/3/15" or something like that?

What AmiiboNews posted on Twitter about Gamestop stock for this wave is pretty disheartening.  Many Ness dreams will be crushed.

I wonder how many employees are gonna attempt to take them. Hopefully people who want Ness and other amiibo will threaten to call district managers if that does happen.

Yes.  Mine says:

"Item(s) on hold until release date: 04 / 03 / 15"

 

4/3/15 was the date I placed my order.  I wouldn't worry about it until next week (at release).

Says right in that picture that amount will vary for other stores so it is possible that some store will receive none.

Wow... I got my hopes up that maybe Ness wouldn't be that rare after seeing those Greninja numbers, but guess I'm SoL. 

 

At least I now know to just give up. I'm not even going to bother calling/asking about it because I know I'll the get "you shoulda pre-ordered in the two whole hours it was available in store for pre-order, in the middle of a random day!! I mean, it's not like you had a job, right?! HUR DURR!!!!".
