Stopped by Target they have Fire Emblems 2 Pack $24.99 out and ready to Go for Tomorrow morning ( I don't even try to buy it. 100% they will take everything off & put back in the back room).  Seem like every target store will have 6-8 2 pack.

I saw about 6 with the big ol Red Best Buy pickup stickers on the front of the plastic at the counter at Best Buy (obviously) earlier.

I got my FE 2 pack on Tuesday from Best Buy...I was hoping they would ship the CE that early too but no luck.

I had the FE amiibos and the game in separate orders with separate cards from Best Buy because one was from the VC offer. I was supposed to pick them both up today but it's hot outside and I'm lazy, so I'm having them shipped now. I was worried there a bit because I saw the amiibos were out of stock and it wouldn't let me ship them until today. But then they also wanted to charge me $4 for shipping the amiibos, despite the fact that I'm an Elite Plus member. So I just placed a new order instead. I'm so glad I didn't end up screwing myself over in the end.

Meijer didn't even have them out, but I asked and they had a sealed case behind the counter.

Did any other "rare" amiibo get re-stocked along with the new FE ones?

Don't over think it. There is no reason to believe anything that he says, and the overwhelming odds are that he is just trolling. Sure, the dude probably actually doesn't like fat people, but this multi-year long play of red-pill-esque, exaggerated posts can't be anything other than a troll.

On the contrary, i have no reason to lie. $2500 isn't that much money made on this. There's people who got in on it earlier than I did and had even more villager, marth, and wii fit trainers on ebay. I have also posted images of what I sold in this very thread.

What I find is that people like yourself that call "bs" and "troll" are just upset that they didn't capitalize on Nintendo's mistake like the rest of us did.

There's not a single amiibo left in my possession and I'm not even tempted to buy any more. It's called winning. You may want to give it a try some time. FeelsGoodMan!

OK. And no one here has any reason to believe you. In this environment of anti scalping (at least it used to be) your multi year crusade just reeks of opportunistic trolling. Believing anything you say is a fools errand.

Looking forward to the FE dual pack to arrive today. The FE amiibo after Marth have been some of my favorite.

Personally I find his posts funny, not only because of the content but because they rile up people like yourself. If you're that offended then just put him on ignore...

Detail on Celica and Alm is really solid except for the faces but I'm not going to hold that against them for the price.

Well spoken Kyle.   I find it better off to just add these troll accusers like him to my ignore list and have him add me to his. One can only take so many laughs when people claim what you say isn't true before you just have to shrug it off, laugh at their nonacceptance of the truth, and move on.  Then again I must question if doubters like him are indeed a neckbeard themselves or why else would they feel offended in the first place?  An insecurity perhaps?  Oh well, who am I to come in-between a grown man and his toys.

Nope. My store only got enough to cover preorders and one extra to put out on the shelves. Nothing else.

If Nintendo was more in touch with their community they would have released an amiibo in the design of a flipper. Maybe it could have show the flipper carrying a huge pile of amiibo and pushing a child to the ground. Would have been the perfect keepsake to remember this whole fad by.

This has nothing about being offended and everything about people being too gullible to see through his act.  Yes, finding troll posts funny is supposed to be the point, but people believe him.  Sorry, I am just sick of the concept after sh!tposting played a part in politics this past year.  At least you know he is putting on an act, and that is all I can really want of someone.  You have the ability to think critically, which is more than it appears I can say for a lot of people.

 

And if his response isn't a textbook example of proving my point then I don't know what is. :D/ (not pointing at you, you already know he is putting on an act)

 

Amiibo from BB came in a box today.  They have been very good with the shipping these last few waves.

Personally, I just don't think he's very funny and so his posts become a literal waste of screen space.  He tries too hard and it just comes off as desperate.  I mean there are legitimately some hilarious sh*tposters on here, but he isn't even close to being one of them.

Port Richey, FL Toys R Us got in 15 of the FE 2 packs.  I'd assume bigger stores probably got same if not more.

These 2 packs won't be rare for now, but who knows. Alm's face is funny looking though

I was a little worried because I wasn't able to find the Fire Emblem 2-pack at Target on Friday morning, and I was heading out of town for the weekend. Big family reunion out-of-state, and I was sans internet and didn't have access to my usual shopping the whole time. Very much a packed schedule, with no free time for shopping for amiibos. When I finally get back into town and start poking around, lo-and-behold, Amazon has the new 2-pack in stock, no problems. That was mildly anti-climactic, but it's great that I was able to pick up this latest release without any real trouble or drama.

I was the only pre-order at Gamestop for the Fire Emblem 2-pack, and they did not get any extras in... Maybe I should've gotten two.

That would've been stupid considering they're still available on the GameStop, Toys R Us, Amazon, and Target websites, as well as in tons of stores (at least around me)

But frustratingly, not at Best Buy. Need that GCU discount!
