Glad I got an order in at the store for Cloud P2. Never owned a single one of these things until now and kind of funny it's for a PlayStation era character. :lol:

Just got a Cloud and Link preorder in store, last Link they had. I know I'm gonna end up missing the Amazon preorders though...I really want MM Link for the Fierce Deity Link, hopefully that one gets announced by BB or someone soon.

Brickseek shows like good stock of three different zelda amiibos at a Walmart like 10 miles away. Went here and they said they didn't have them and that all amiibos were out. Didn't seem they knew what they were doing.

Brickseek is pretty much completely unreliable for Walmart and only semi-reliable for Target, I wouldn't blame the employees

True haha if they disappear after a week I'll know they were hiding it. Happens at my nearby target a lot

Where are you located? I even tried to go to stores out in the "country" a bit, but most of them only got 1 Link pre-order and it was gone...

Chattanooga, TN. I live near about 8-10 stores that are within reasonable driving distance. I called 5 yesterday and 1 store that's about 20 miles from my house said they had 1 left, no idea how many they had total. I made the mistake of calling when I still had to work another 30 minutes or so, so I didn't show up until an hour later but they still had it thankfully.

I would bet that Brickseek is pretty accurate at telling you what a stores inventory says it has. Its just the stores themselves aren't keeping correct numbers or fixing inaccuracies.

Yep, I've found that Brickseek is very acccurate, it's stores' inventory that is the problem. Only issue that I've seen is where they've scanned it in and not put it on the floor or for fast selling items, I'm not sure how quick Brickseek pulls data.

Just got a Link from a Gamestop here in Chicago about an hour ago, wasn't their last one either. Hopefully these aren't as scarce as it seems.

It's not nearly as bad as wave 3 or 4 so far, thank god. Just give me a good 6 hour window to preorder my stuff and I'm good. The bullshit is when they sell out in 10 minutes like a couple years ago

All of the local stores were out of TP Link and Cloud 2. Called the one in the mall and they still had multiple of both. If you still don't have a preorder, try there. Now I can cancel the BS online order with $12 shipping :D

So Gamestop is running a sale on used Amiibos (if you can find them) 5 for $5. I was able to get Chibi Robo and Lucas for 1.49 each.

I think a lot of Gamestops no longer sell used toys to life figures.  I know all my local stores are wiped out.

 

Speaking of Gamestop, all Animal Crossing amiibo have been lowered to $2.99 each.  May be time to pick up those that you are missing.  I got Kappn but couldn't find Rover yet (they were the last two I was missing along with Summer outfit Isabelle).

Yeah, I checked 2 stores last night and found next to nothing.  I did see a new Ness amiibo, which is the first time I've seen one in person.

 

I also got my 2 Japanes MH amiibos the other day.  Looking at the paper in the bottom, it looks like you can pull off the rider and switch which mount they are on?!  Wow, I guess I need to get the rest and open them, haha.

Ness seems to be a decent pickup at $8.97 if you haven't gotten it yet.

Yep!  They have little posts that fit into the mounts.  I've only opened Qurupeco so far, but they're really nice.

I am pretty sure when you scan the Amiibo it will register to your Nintendo device.

You should be able to reset the Amiibo under the Wii U system settings.

Did the Skyward Sword amiibo already sell out on Amazon? It says currently unavailable? Did I miss it? Or is that just a placeholder for when they do put it up?

I'm getting so tired of these store exclusives and "limited" prints. I used to really enjoy collecting Amiibo, but now I just want to sell off my entire collection. Plus, these "player 2" alternates and the plethora of TLoZ amiibo are really starting to drive me nuts.

I'm not sure I need alternate after alternate of the same goddamn character 😑

Edit: Also, $100 for TP Link? Wtf?

Stop whining

And if it's anything like before, they'll reprint them in huge numbers in six months and they'll rot on the shelf afterwards for months and months until there's another hype bubble. 

 

The only time there's been issues is when all of a sudden people want the figures RIGHT NOW, either as they're being rolled out or after the fact when a new game adds new functionality.

 

I mean, I have a mostly complete collection of all the NA releases  +/- one or two, and I've bought the vast majoirty of them on clearance or at a minimum a discount.
