Saw a Majora’s mask Link at Target but passed considering it looked so small compared to average Amiibo. Why would they make it that small, makes no sense to me.

Anybody been to the Nintendo store in NY recently? Which amiibo do they have in stock?


I was there on 10/23. Was surprised to find out they only have what's basically on your local store shelf minus the AC stuff (Corrin, Cloud, Bayonetta, Pikmin, etc). The only marginally rare in the wild one I saw was a few Zero Suit Sami. Unless you live in Manhattan, probably not worth the trip.

I thought this was a Best Buy exclusive?  Sounds like that is no longer the case then if it being sold at other retailers.

Still says Best Buy exclusive on their website.

I'm wondering this as well.

 

Picked up my SSB Zelda at Walmart today. I believe, as far as LoZ themed amiibo are concerned I'm only missing SSB Toon Link and Sheik. I wonder if Sheik is getting a reprint?

Just picked up my 2x SSB Zelda order from Walmart and inside the box was my 2x Blue Joy-Cons order that is "processing". Kinda upset but also made out like a bandit!

Looks like they've been spotted in the wild at TRU locations. Going to check my local later today. As for Sheik, we could probably see some Smash reprints for the inevitable Switch version...but who knows really?

Bought 4 (paid for 1) yesterday, and came back today for 4 more! TRU manager said they started this BF deal a little early.

Yes, but I think it's a different toon Link. I'm confused why they would sell the Wind Waker one by itself (the 2-pack version). It's pretty small compared to the other.

I just bought 8 online for about 20 shipped. Thanks for pointing out the sale had no idea. Wan't planning on buying any of the animal crossing ones but for that price...sure why not.

Just a warning to anyone trying to order the Toon Link Amiibo from toys r us. We went to pick ours up today for in store pick up, and it's the incorrect one shown online. Site shows the single amiibo in the running pose. It's actually the one that came in the double pack :(
Now they're giving my gf a hard time returning it

Frys had around 10 zero suit samus in store.  Not sure if it's a reprint or frys is just hoarding them, but surprised to still see so many in the wild.

Fairly positive it's the same one from the 2 pack, but no idea why they printed this by itself and not Toon Zelda. Got one today at TRU they had about 20. Only LOZ amino I've missed have been OOT Link and the 2 pack, so hopefully we'll see Toon Zelda at some point

Very random question: Anyone know any tricks to get the base off an amiibo besides brute force? Thought it'd be fun to turn some of mine into tree ornaments.

Why not just leave the bases on the tree ornaments? At least they would be useful or saleable after Christmas.

That sucks, unless they're doing a Zelda by herself as well. Actually bought the 2-pack from BB, but returned it because the packaging was slightly damaged.

The bases will still work in game (assuming I don't break em), and I have zero interest in selling them. Too much work. Plus I'm going to drill a hook into the top of the them to hang, so I doubt that will entice many buyers

Likely because Toon Link has a full outfit unlock in addition to the boomerang.  Toon Zelda just has the shield.

When did you bought the 2pack? Is this a recent restock?
