There are still a few Targets in the San Fernando Valley that are carrying amiibos besides just the Animal Crossing ones: over the last few days I’ve managed to grab Shovel Knight, 8-Bit Link, Dr. Mario, Waluigi and Daisy from various stores, all for $6.48. They also have listings for Ganondorf, OoT Link, WW Toon Link & Zelda, and wedding Mario, Bowser & Peach on their website, but nothing even remotely close to me.

If it's not too much... A shovel knight amiibo would be amazing. I would gladly pay you back plus shipping

To further clear up some confustion, Gamestop is currently allowing web-in-store pre-orders for thee Solaire amiibo. These are the orders where the customer pays in full up front and the item is delivered to their address of choice (at a cost). I just had an order placed at my local store about an hour ago and the employee confirmed that they are not doing traditional store preorders...but the web-in-store is (was?) still active.


WTF is it 2016. Killing me, Nintendo.

There was only one left at the Target I found mine at, but Brickseek is claiming there are two others with limited stock near me. I can stop by after work tomorrow and check for you.

People say CAG is not what it used to be but I'll be damned if that isn't a super cool thing to do for a person you don't know. Awesome.

Thanks, I had flipped this one back and forth to gamestop so much I didn't realize I had neglected to re buy it. Now my smash set is complete!

Not a big deal at all. Just hope there are (and I’ve experienced it first hand, so I KNOW there are) there are other CAGs out there that would do the same for me if the tables were turned.

Left work expecting to go to two stores, but only had to visit one: “limited stock” turned out to be three of the guys hanging in the amiibo section. Grabbed two and left the last one for someone else. PM me your info so we can talk specifics and I get this to you ASAP.

Looks like Toys R Us is (unfortunately,) officially dead now. So the amiibo game is going to be an even bigger grind going forward...😞

Look on the bright side, there will be one less retail-exclusive location to worry about!

Which means more Gamestop exclusives.

Atleast I never got shoulder checked trying to get an Gamestop exclusive or had to wait in a 100 person deep line (I'm looking at you Wave 2-3 launch at Toys R Us)

Pearl and Marina amiibo pre-ordered. Got it locked in.

 

I know it isn't the cheap-ass way to go about things, but I don't like lining up at stores unless I have to.

Found a shovel knight amiibo on clearance for $6.48 if someone needs it. Got one for myself last week.

Saw detective pikachu at Target this morning, that $30 price tag made it an easy pass though.

Has there been an amiibo that wasn't carried in stores?

I mean obviously not the Amazon exclusives. I just didn't understand why they would think a non exclusive wouldn't be in stores.

I guess it just sort of seems like a specialty item. It doesn't fit the established planogram for amiibos. Obviously it doesn't matter much since most of the pegs are empty these days though.

Mine came in the mail today. Comedically large, not sure it needs to be this size at all.

They had to do something other than just adding a hat to a normal sized Pikachu to get people to buy it. ;)
