I doubt that, unless they up production (I have a feeling they will make more, particularly around MP4 release).  People have wanted a Metroid Amiibo for a very long time, even without considering the really great new 3DS game.  Of all the new Amiibo announced at E3, this sold out the absolute fastest - even faster than the new Zelda four.  Add in that we all know Metroid Prime 4 will almost certainly use them in some manner.  This is going to be a really popular pack and I doubt it heads to clearance.

Plus the Metroid amiibo is squishy.  How cool is that?

It's big, squishy, has awesome detail and unlocks a cool mode in a game.  Pure Amiibo win.  Definitely one of my favorite.

I have to resist the urge to squish it so I don't break it one day.

Went into 3 TRU today for Amiibo hunting. All had multiple Samus (expected) but two had no Zero Suit. At the one that had Samus Zero Suit, the cashier said people have been buying a lot of the zero suit these days. He said he had 20+ more in the back. I think the problem is TRU took Zero Suit off their web site (at least I can't find it), so hard to tell where they are.

After some chatting, the cashier told me that Zelda BotW amiibos reprints should be available in a couple weeks; but, I'd take that with a grain of salt, because I asked him about the Champions release date and he never heard of them. He said TRU's inventory goes out to October 2nd right now, so that's how he knows about incoming Zelda BotW stock.

Great cashier. I'm going back to that TRU (if they're still around).

I usually don't take much consideration of what anyone says at the store level of any corporation - usually the managers are the only ones who get the full picture, and even sometimes that generous. This cashier might be onto something though and just might be generall more informed on their own accord. Looks like some BotW reprints coming and a store exclusive Link as well.

NO doubt BotW reprints are coming.   Zelda is biggest game on Switch and Xmas is coming.   Lots of new Switch owners will appear and copies of BotW will fly out the door.  AT least half Nintendo's business is traditionally xmas quarter.  No doubt Nintendo will have BotW Amiibo for that occasion.   

 

However this doesn't mean every one of them gets a reprint.  I wouldn't be suprised if they hold back on one and certainly the one that hasn't sold as well so far would be reprinted in lesser numbers.

I mean, the proof is right their on their CPSIA of what's already being reprinted right now. They will undoubtedly be doing at least another 1-3 batches of BotW amiibo into the holiday season. I wouldn't expect Bokoblin to get any reprint, whereas most of the rest will, just possibly not multiple times.

Even exclusives and smash Link are getting reprints, the only thing I wouldn't hold my breath for is the three 30th Anniversary amiibo that released last holiday. If they do, awesome, but I think the likelihood is about 0%.

BotW Zelda, Guardian, Link Archer, Link Rider, Wolf Link, Smash Link, Majora's Mask Link, and another Link (likely the 8-bit one) will all be reprinted. No more, no less

The innards of the Metroid are also soft (I figured they would be firm), so squishing (within reason) should not be a problem.  What would have been really cool is if the fill it with gel and glitter of some kind instead of empty space to give it some depth and support.

 

They really need to come out with a Metroid executive desk toy/squishy.  That would rock.

Was not aware of the reporting requirements. You are correct about 8-bit link if you download the PDFs. Manufactured in August 2017; I'm estimating October 2017 through November deliver to store (May 2017 manufactured amiibos were delivered as late as July and early August).

I wish they'd rerelease the Windwaker 2 pack. I already got Smah Link/8 bit link, wolf link etc. I guess the ones I got will tank in the value while the two I didn't will continue to skyrocket. :(

Why not? There's been at least 1 Bokoblin reprint.

When was that?  I thought bokoblin sold the worst at release, was the only one to linger on shelves until everyone started going amiibo crazy again, and has not been seen since.  At least that is the only one I have never been able to find after passing at release.  Seen all the others multiple times at tru, target, best buy, gamestop... but no bokoblin in months.

I put in an order with Gamestop. If something happens, and I miss a 4th order for these bloody amiibo, I am going to be a very angry face.

There was a small release of them around late July or early August, I think. At least, I saw a couple pop up in stores.

 

Edit: Looking on Reddit, I wasn't the only one to find it. But it could have been a Target warehouse thing and not an actual reprint.

Will we ever get a reprint of the 4 exclusive Link amiibo? 3 of the 4 sold out way to fast for me and I could never find them for sale afterwards.

You can probably expect a Majora's Mask reprint soon.

Nope, just the one run from Feb. 8, 2017 - I'm guessing a warehouse may have found an alottment at some point at that would explain any small restock that may have seemingly happened.

Nintendo's CPSIA sheet has all of the info to keep track of what's going on.

FWIW, the Twilight Princess exclusive got reprinted in July, but I'm pretty sure those were slowly trickled into stores because I was able to pick one up for a buddy in mid-August.

You can probably expect a Majora's Mask reprint soon.

Yep - confirmed in the screenshot I posted above.

Anyone interested in the Metroid 2 pack? My Freddy's has one left, and I'm in Oregon, so no sales tax.

On the topic of 2packs. BB canceling orders not picked up yet so I picked today. Doesn't look like they're putting them online but maybe walk into a store if you're nearby.

Wow thanks for the news on the official reprints! I've been wanting to get SSB Link and Zelda for a while now but had no luck. I have the three link exclusives for trade but it didn't work out. Maybe now I'll be able to successfully trade them or just go out and buy them myself! Thanks again for the news!

NIce.  I've said many times over that BotW would get reprinted.   IT was obvious.   The others I had no clue.  Although in hindsight I think Nintendo has reprinted every store exclusive eventually right?  And the 30th anniversary ones were store exclusives.

 

I guess I should sell mine now as well lol.
