Yes it would cost around what the item sold for just for postage and shipping materials and the $1.79 Lego Dinension sets were even more of a loss for them. I posted last week that those prices seemed too low but they I trust them after I got the other item from them so quickly.

Yep, arrived in a box. Even shipped with tracking.

The cardboard backing was slightly creased on the corner, but that is absolutely fine :D

I'm going to have to remember to keep an eye on ebay for future sales from their company, Gamer Candy.

LOL, yeah, that's the cost of living at it's finest. I paid about half of that for my sons box here in Vegas.

Well it definitely depends on where you buy your cereal.  When I buy Fiber One for my wife at the grocery store, it is $4.99 a box, but at Target or Walmart it is closer to $3.

Yeah definitely. I spent a few days scouring Walmart and Target at "release" and gave up.

I just picked up the Mario amiibo cereal at my local Walmart while I was picking up some windshield washer fluid. Be patient, it will pop up eventually.

I neglected to mention this was the Walmart on Sheridan Drive in Amherst NY 14226. They had about 10 left

It was up at Walmart.com for about an hour yesterday.  I missed it, but that's the only US retailer that has listed it so far.

I just got back from Gamestop and I saw three Metroid amiibo 2 packs on the rack. I asked the rep about them and he said they just got a shipment in today. Might be worth giving your local one a call if you missed out on these two!

I have to check in with my local store, I was there the other day and they pretty much told me they no longer carry Amiibos. Which sucks cause I was on the hunt for Princess Peach amiibo.

Preorder was never legit, there was a shipping/pickup bug because it wasn't ready to go live yet. It's good to go now. Just got the order confirmation e-mail.

Thanks for the heads-up! Got an order in in case I miss out on Best Buy.

Thanks for the heads up.  Checked stock on the website and sure enough a bunch of stores near me now have stock of this.

Detective Pikachu is still up at Walmart. Anyone know if it’s exclusive to Walmart? The last big Amiibo they made was an exclusive (Mega Yarn Yoshi at Toys R Us). Went ahead and preordered it at Walmart but I’d much rather get it at Best Buy for the gamers club discount and rewards points.

Does anyone know where could I get the Luigi Amiibo for retail price? I'm playing Mario and the Rabbids and I was looking them. I know I can use the Marios from the 20th anniversary, and a fellow CAG posted Peach above, where I also could find Yoshi.. now, I couldn't find Luigi there, nor in any of the "mainstream" websites.. am I SOL that I gotta buy an overpriced one or is there still hope?

Not sure about exclusivity, but I checked and was able to order one after seeing your post. I assumed after earlier in the day I wouldn't have a shot at it. Thanks!
