I was there earlier today and overheard one of the employees talking about MK. He said they had five of them when they opened up and they lasted about a half hour so I'm guessing you were there at open? :) I've already got a MK but it would have been great trade bait for one of the other figures I'm looking for for my son.

 

Great find on the Marth too.

I actually got it yesterday around, 5pm or 6pm. I went there to pick up Splatoon and the had 2 hanging there lol.

12.99 plus shipping

Personally, given one trade I saw while waiting at Toys R Us yesterday (where someone traded a Jigglypuff for a Rosalina), I'd go with one of the store exclusive Amiibos in exchange for MetaKnight.

Like I said, trade for whatever you need.

Any MK sightings at any Long Island or Queens Best Buy? Keep hearing about upstate.

i checked levittown and bayshore and employees had no clue about it etc.

My local bestbuy has 9 Meta knights in the stock and told me, "I can't buy one because they are sending them back to the manufacturer." I smell something fishy and it isn't wargod. Anyone else encounter this?

Thats an employee holding them.  You probably found the one employee who not only didn't know they came in and you alerted him, but that once he was aware decided he was gonna screw you over.  I'd go back and tell the manager tomorrow that was what you were told by that employee and they will hopefully do good by you and get one shipped from another store.  Hopefully the employee didn't do anything stupid like buy them and someone rats him out.

Is there a way to check stock for Meta Knight at BBY? It doesn't show up when I search, at least not on mobile...

EDIT* Just found it but it just shows OOS. No option to check store inventory.

There is a way to check, either call or go to your local bestbuy, and the customer service guy/gal to check Sku for Meta Knight. They can not only see if their store has it, but every store in the entire district.

My Lucina from Amazon just shipped.

 

Also the Jigglypuff i managed to get online friday at Target.com also shipped.

 

Now i just need to hope somehow either my Tigerdirect or Groupon Robin ships and i should be good for this wave.

meta knight not here in missouri or kansas yet!

Yes they are. Got 2 (both are for a friend in Chicago and his friend in SF) at the South STL County BB mid-Saturday afternoon. After I saw the post about possible OMS from the warehouse I went to that store looking and asked about it and was told don't have to do that, we have them in the back. Got one for my friend, then he texted back saying his friend in SF needed one so I went back in and got the 2nd one. Crazy they were just hidden in the back waiting for someone to ask about them.

 

I have 3/4 of the Fire Emblem characters for myself, just need to get Marth sometime. I would also like to get Ness and then be done with just 5 figures.

 

In regards to TRU stock, what sense does it make for the SF location to get only 10 Greninja while the South STL County TRU got over 70 of those plus 8 each of Marth, Lucina, and Robin?

Didn't realize how much content the splatoon amiibos unlock, so now I'm kicking myself for not getting a 3 pack. Is that one expected to make a return or am I relatively sol? I may check toys r us tomorrow.

theres a guy on a local facebook gaming thing that's willing to pay $20 each for ness, robin, and lucina. I actually don't see much amiibo stuff on craigslist down here in Southern Indiana

I don't think you'd have a difficult time finding someone will to pay $25+ for those, especially Ness.

Oh I know $20 for ness would be amazing, I just can't believe people actually think that they are going to get the 3 rares this wave for $20 each

Thanks. Ordered them. Not going to deal with the hassle of a US release, especially for the Pink and Blue ones.
