Ah, more chances to not get these. Fantastic. 

More chances to hear that amazing story told by every gaming associate you bump into... "Some guy came in and bought each and every one of them as soon as we opened"

Proof of restocks: http://en-americas-s...s-of-compliance

 

Only speculation as to how many it will be. My personal guess, they will still be hard as hell to find.

Nice to see the exclusives are getting restocked for those missing them.  I still need Ness, Lucario and Greninja.  Sad that the last two are probably the most "common" exclusives but the nearest TRU to me is pretty shit and isn't really "near".

 

If restocks continue/drive down insane rarity levels I'd actually be happy mainly because then I'd be able to open mine up instead of letting paranoia of opening a rare/valuable collectible control me :D

this thread really has become a waste, all it is are complaints about "scalpers" from people who will only "trade" their rares for other perceived rares....the "rares" that they bought 3-4-5 of so they could "trade"  which is no different than scalping, ill stick to the wechat alerts from now on

lol thanks for contributing to the waste one last time then. d^-^b 

This thread is full of complaints in general. Looks like there's no stopping it. If complaining about the complaining makes everyone feel better, I'm all for it.

 

Did anyone here pick up one of the Meta Knights from the Capital Boulevard Best Buy in NC? Any idea how large the restock was? Overheard a guy who works at the Garner location say that restock was huge. But then I was wondering if 12 MK is now considered huge...

Yeah pretty much.  A lot of brats around here that don't show any appreciation when others post updates and info.  There's just a bunch of narcissistic whining from people that say they miss out on everything.  Pretty soon no one is going to post drop info here anymore.

 

Try to make some more worthwhile contributions, everyone.  We really don't need to hear all the opinions of first time collectors and '15ers.

Did Nintendo commit to making Amiibo for all DLC characters, too?

Capitol Blvd had like 16 - 20 while Garner easily had 36 - 40. Both got them in nearly two weeks ago on the same day.

I can imagine. I'd love a Mewtwo Amiibo. FYI, Roy (Fire Emblem) and Ryu (Street Fighter) DLC for Smash Bros were just leaked

Yes, they did in the last Nintendo Direct. I imagine they'll be the last waves of new Smash figures.

i havent had any trouble getting the amiibo i want and i gotta admit im losing interest. theyre taking up too much space now. i won't be buying any more unless i absolutely HAVE to have it (Raichu, Protoman, Knuckles, etc). They really need to step up the functionality for these things to last the test of time they cant keep depending on collectors.

I have to agree. I'm still gonna try to get as many as possible, but the space is an issue. They will have to make some sort of Disney Infinity/Skylanders type of game with these, or they will start the dying process as soon as all of them get released and people who want them have them

Sweet, that is a moderate restock! I hope y'all got what you needed. I was at the beach during the restock, so I missed the triangle activity. But they had a whole box full in Jacksonville (probably 12ish). The CS reps even let me pick out which one I wanted. No luck with Shulk though. The only available Shulk amiibo was in a Gamestop in Camp Lejeune--restricted access for civilians lol.

Palutena Amiibo ($25.68) - http://www.ebay.com/...692270311&rt=nc

 

If Pit was any indication, this will probably end up being a good price if you don't want to wait for a NA release and test your luck then

 

Also:

 

Ganondorf ($25.49) - http://www.ebay.com/...711736714&rt=nc

most of those are probably from the website as one could place multiple orders.

Seeing how it's Jigglypuff (a Target exclusive) I'm not surprised since Target.com let's you place as many orders as you can until it goes OOS even though they restrict it to only 2 per order. They don't cancel the orders either for overbuying. It's how that one guy bought 100 Rosalinas.

Greninjas are still in the wild. Just saw a bunch at the Danbury CT TRU.

Maybe 1 or few stores. My local TRU is long gone on day 1 before the store closed.

If you're a "professional" you probably have multiple accounts ready and are used to the drill of buying as fast as possible. That's nothing compared to the rosalina though
