Noticed a couple SSB series amiibo really cheap at target.com.  Red Card members get 5% off and free shipping:

 

Lucas - $5.69

R.O.B. Famicom colors - $6.99

YMMV indeed. I was at a store that had all those on clearance at those prices except that the one I wanted most (Kirby) was still $9.xx. I picked it up anyway just in case since of all that series it is the only one that isn't cheap on Amazon. I was so tempted to pick up a Ryu even though I already have it. I'm going to check on Monday for the Splatoon pack to be cheaper - I'd definitely buy that with another drop.


And today brickseek is telling me that all locations near me have them discounted at 9.08. Not true in store though. They ring for 12.99 still. wp Target wp

Just starting your amiibo collection? Can't find earlier wave figures? I can help. Send me a PM.

Has NOA confirmed that the Monster Hunter amiibo will hit State side?

Still waits for NERO, Bayonetta and Cloud.  Nintendo did not give what's FANS wanted.  Possible they release Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Edition on NX along with 3-6 new characters next year! Just only 3 left and i finished my collection.

OK Fuck it.  Apparently we're not getting a Robin/Lucina reprint, and I'm tired of being 2 down in an otherwise complete collection.  I don't care the version (have a so far complete US set, but open (I carefully cut away the bubbles at the bottom so I could repackage them to look sealed if desired in the future, cuz I think the packaging just looks snazzy).

 

Anyone recommend a good place to get Robin/Lucina at a decent price, any version?  Amazon sellers have Lucina at 25 and Robin at 22, EU or Japan versions.

If you don't care about region, Play-Asia has Lucina and Robin for 19.99 each, but their shipping price and timeline might otherwise turn you off from them.

Edit - just saw that you're indifferent to region. I believe the Lucina is Japanese, and Robin European.

Ordered Isabelle Winter ver Amiibo last night from Amazon at $4.32.

 

Alternatively I could have got her with the AC Amiibo Festival set from BB for $16 after GCU, but then I would have AC Amiibo Festival :\

Thanks all.  There also seem to be a decent number of European and Japanese Robin and Lucina's available via ebay for ~20.00 shipped free.

I still keep hoping I'll see a one more Lucina in the preowned pile at GameStop. For something like that to happen, it would require GS associates that don't recognize what was traded and for (really any) preowned amiibo to stick around for more than 48 hours. Fat chance.

Was it confirmed about no re-prints for Robin and Lucina? I can't believe Gamestop didn't jump on these and make them used.

Where have you guys been? Lucina Is getting a restock. CPSIA was recently updated, along with Palutena . Possibly coming for the holiday rush like last year. Nothing on Robin, however. That means they'll be msrp (or clearance if they sit long enough) if nintendo makes plenty, like every other amiibo released in the past year.

Oh good I totally hadn't heard that.  If they do the rumored Smash NX, I assume it too would have Amiibo support, so maybe they'll re-release everything to allow people just getting it to get them too?

 

Or they could be completely evil and release the entire series over again in terms of characters, but in different poses, to truly drive the collectors nuts...

I'm hoping they release Smash NX with basic support for the original amiibo, then "advanced" support for amiibo 2.0 which are all essentially the same poses as the originals ^_^

I want another pose. There are tons of trophies with various poses from all the Smash games. Just make them do all the same Amiibo functionality, though, so I can just choose poses I really want.

While I'm glad to hear this, WTF took them so fucking long? They figured out Marth needed a reprint and announced it after a few months of release. Even though they took forever to actually get stock rolling out, at least they acknowledge the reprint early on. They took over a year to just announce a Lucina reprint that unlike Marth, who was around for a few weeks before he became obscure, she was nearly impossible to even pre-order. I'm hoping Robin gets a reprint as well.

I'm curious to know if Amiibo are as profitable as they used to be. I mean, the hype is dead and everything goes on clearance these days... but they keep making/releasing new lines so I guess they're still making money on them. But for some reason, they refuse to finish up the Smash line.

I was surprised they continued the Mario party line after the less than stellar sales of that game and the disaster of the animal crossing Amiibo series.
I have enjoyed picking these up preowned at GameStop with the b2g3 free sale

I'm sure they are reevaluating their business, especially production run #s, and deciding what will sell well.  We'll probably see the rest of the Smash characters during Christmas.

The only thing they have reevaluated is painting splatoon characters a different color and hoping someone will buy them instead of not buying anything from them until Cloud and Bayonetta are released as intended.  I've even seen neck beards at the local gamestops turn there nose up to their fedora and refuse to buy them.   When they can't even get a neck beard to purchase, you know somebody at Nintendo f'd up.

But the initial Mario Party line was all repeats from Smash, except Toad. There are much better ones that will sell this time. You can't compare that to Animal Crossing (or even Kirby).

The funniest part about all of this were the armchair CEOs that all insisted Nintendo done screwed up good by under-estimating the demand.  How if they made enough for demand they would be doing soo much better.  Well now they have met demand and retailers have to clearance them out.  And not just the Animal Crossing ones, I've seen many of the ones thought to be popular going on clearance.  The thing that was propping up the craze was the rarity, now that they aren't rare (many of them that is), only people that like them want them.

 

If they are re-evaluating the business, they need to ignore the people that were screaming for them to up numbers and do big re-prints.  Everyone wanted Marth until everyone could get Marth, then no one cared.

So my local Target has a bunch of the Splatoon amiibo figures for 50% off on clearance. These things worth a damn?

They are completely worthless, but it is nice to add to the collection at a low price. Especially if you like the Splatoon series. Who knows, maybe they'll be even cheaper during Black Friday. I'm weak and bought them now.

At this point, I'm glad for a relatively high diversity within the figure line, that rather than lots of lazy repaints, they're been an actually pretty significant amount of diversity, and they've gone pretty deep into the rosters of some games.

I would think that Splatoon is a series that "neckbeards" couldn't give two shits about, that's why the lack of interest from that segment of the buying population anyway.  They will go crazy for the last 3 Smash characters though.

I'm fairly certain he's cabable of working that out on his own, but wanted to inject his characteristic "neckbeard" nonsense into this page of the thread anyway.

Cool, cheapo Lucina incoming. Actually, I'm up for a new pose. (But that might be because I already have a NiB and a custom painted Lucy.) I do prefer the look of New Kirby to Old Kirby--if only functionality was the same.



Guys, I just want some Pokémon amiibo. Guess Nintendo can't convince the Pokémon Company to go for it.

Guess I'm going to have to get that yarn dog amiibo as well... there you go again Nintendo.  Obviously those new Zelda amiibo will be purchased as well -- that OoT one looks amazing! Please post pre-order links once available if you guys see 'em anywhere too :)
