Did jigglypuff come out yet? I haven't heard a peep on my target order from months ago.

In a completely related topic... has anyone seen any good deals on folding lounge chairs lately?

Walmart and Target may have some decent priced ones.

damn I keep missing the page alert.  Only once have I actually gotten it in cart.  Do you use an addon or just refresh yourself?

 

 

anyone with GCU and interested in NA Meta Knight and Shulk let me know!

I didn't even get an alert. I was just browsing my emails and saw that I got an alert at 10:11 this morning. I missed it due to working at the time.

I decided to check Best Buy around 3:05 and the pre-order button was up. I pre-ordered as fast as I could. It sold out right after that.

I used the official Best Buy app on my Android smartphone.

So, NWS just sent out a cryptic tweet that said if you present the tweet to them at 4pm today you can get "that one amiibo that got away" (limit 2 per customer).  Wonder if that means they have them ALL available? If so, could one of our regular generous CAGs swing by and pick me up a Villager? :D

Obviously Sonic, because he's too fast.

I saw that, I'm really curious what that means. I would assume that means they have stock of every amiibo, but who knows. I've been pretty much distancing myself from the wave 4 launch, I was lucky enough to get preorders for everyone but Greninja, I'm just hoping they'll throw some up on TRU.com on Friday, because there's no way I'd get to one until 6 or 7pm that day.

Yeah, unfortunately all of my normal NYC contacts are unavailable today or out of town so I literally would have to hope one of the NYC regulars that pops in there could help out.  They say that you need to "present them this tweet" though, so I guess it wouldn't be for just anyone walking into the store?  Weird either way.  But I can see them literally having every amiibo right now, its the only store in America.

Just called and they won't even tell me which ones they've got over the phone -- just telling me to come down and I'll likely be very happy I made the trip!  :wall:

 

Edit: yeah, they do have Villager... someone hook me up! :D

Apparently this is what they have.

 

And the insane line already.

 

 

 

If the list isn't showing for anyone, they have

Marth

Villager

Fox

Kirby

Little Mac

Pit

Captain Falcon

Samus

Wii Fit Trainer

 

May choose two from the list, limit one of each. So two total. I'm betting they don't have many if they're limiting them like that. Calling it now, sold out in the next hour. If this does indicated a small restock coming, it'll be VERY small.

Sure, I'll just paint one of them to be Villager's head and the other can be his body... kinda like a snowman :P

Old face from the pictures I've seen on Twitter.  No proof yet of a restock :(

Looks like Silver Mario may have been available at Target.com.

Right now it's showing in stock on the mobile site, but says it just went out of stock when trying to add to cart. Might work on desktop.

thanks for the heads up.  Once my friend gets a Villager, I will keep you in mind.

 

I got there around 4:04 and there were about a dozen people ahead of me...outside!  I planned on getting Villager and Pit (and then trade for either JPN/EU version + cash and then trade those to a friend as he gave up on being an inbox collector).  Villager was gone by the time I was allowed inside.  I saw that several people were getting 2 Pits or 2 Little Macs so planned to get 2 Pits.  Right before I got to the table to choose the amiibo (not the register), Little Mac ran out.  I asked for 2 Pits but was declined (again I saw several people in line with 2 Pits or 2 Little Macs) so got WFT.  I ended up paying at around 4:22.  As I was leaving the store walking past the line outside, I saw a friend running from down the block - he only wanted Falcon.  I asked if he could secure a Pit as well.  I ended up texting him priority in case Pit was out too.  Pit and WFT were next to go... and then Captain Falcon... so my friend got pissed and just left.

WAVE 4 WAS NOT THERE
