Has there been an amiibo that wasn't carried 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.

Sorry, should have clarified: I'm surprised TARGET carries it, given their recent purge/clearance of amiibo.

Yeah just saw 2 of them at a Target today. The amount of floor space it requires and the fact every other amiibo is on clearance does make it pretty weird.

Knowing Target (or Nintendo, since they probably have a hand in product placement), that is the only two they will get, which will sell out in like 3 days, and then that spot on the plangoram will remain empty until September.

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

I'm guessing they needed to do something to make you buy the same character again, and increasing the size and raising the price, seemed to do the trick. LOL

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

It does seem like Nintendo is rethinking their amiibo strategy; that small figures for $12.99 aren't good enough anymore.  Especially not when they overproduce them and they turn into peg warmers.

Simpsons did it first! :D


So target's website no longer has any link amiibo listed. I can't see which stores have them in stock now.
The only one I have is rider link.

Sadly no stores within 100 plus miles have any of them.

Found Tommy and Timmy for 4.48 at target. I’ve got most of the AC amiibo but there were about 100 Lottie’s there still for $5 which is about $4.50 too much.

That said if Nintendo doesn’t come out with an amiibo enabled AC game on switch Ima be pissed!

To be fair, I felt a LOT better about the $23 I spent on Detective Pikachu than the $12.79 I paid for the Breath of the Wild figures.

They were really hoping that Lottie would be the next Isabelle, and that furries would fangirl over her, and buy her up by the dozens. My Target has about 60 of her. I'm waiting for her to drop to $2, before I buy.

The remaining Animal Crossing Amiibo are $2.68 at Target, so I guess that I am getting Lottie this week.

You could sign up for a debit version of the Red Card. That's what I did. Free shipping, and an extra 5% off, and it only takes money from my actual bank account.

My Target had the Animal Crossing amiibo in-store, but they were marked as $4.48. I asked someone in electronics if I could price match the site even though it's clearance, and they said "Yeah, go to guest services." Of course I get up there and they tell me they do not allow clearance price matches even though it's their own website. So I just made a free ship-to-store order for them (it megates the $25 shipping minimum.) I guess they get to pay a few dollars shipping to prevent me from just buying the exact same item in the store. Oh well!

Yeah, I’m in support of Target not price matching online clearance, but there needs to be some leeway or common sense. I know if I explained this exact scenario at my store they would’ve matched it.

Do a ship to store and it'll waive the $25 min. You just have to have a store close by.

If you buy it through the Target app, instead of the website, they let you buy stuff without any arbitrary limit. I have seen that notification when looking at stuff on the website, but when I use the app to buy things, it drops the pay $25 for free shipping nonsense. As it shouldn't even be saying that when you use a Red Card.

Dark Souls amiibo showing as in stock again at Gamestop but not letting me check out.  Any idea what's up with that or ways around it?

Been to seven different TRUs in and around the San Fernando Valley the last few weeks but haven’t managed to find any amiibos worth picking up except for Pit and Ness (since they were on clearance). No luck finding any spare Mega Man or Samus amiibos, however...I’d also love a Ryu amiibo, but not for only 10% off $16.

Check target, Walmart or Nintendo online store for Ryu
