SIX min WHISTLE

Posted 15 April 2018 - 03:50 PM

I've avoided the amiibo scene for a damn long time now, basically ever since the SSB collection finished. However, I just scored a store kiosk, and I'm thinking I will change out the amiibo in the display once I get it properly mounted on the wall. My unit has Mario and Luigi from the Super Mario Series, Link and Pikachu from the SSB series, and an AC amiibo card in the middle. I'm thinking I will reload it with an 8-bit Mario in the middle, Mega Man, Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, and Samus. Nintendo applied a velcro strip to the bottom of the amiibo to ensure they stood upright within the display which should be fairly easy to replicate with a visit to Michael's or Hobby Lobby. 

If you want to salvage those display Amiibo, you can get the velcro off with some heat. I got a SMB Bowser from our Nintendo rep a while back, and was able to clean it up with a hair dryer. Maybe not the Amiibo card though.

Going to check a few more best buy stores tomorrow and see if I can track anymore down. The gcu discount is great when buying amiibos.
If I can't find any soon. I will see what the final cost will be to ship them.

You might have to ask them where they put the remaining amiibo stock since Labo is replacing them in the Nintendo section this week.

Found a 30th anniversary classic colors MARIO amiibo for $6 at Walmart today
Pretty sure I have him already but it was a good price and I figure I can always use him for trade if I do have him already

Are there any future amiibo beyond Marina and Pearl?

I believe the Shovel Knight 3-pack still has an undetermined release date.   There is also that Dark Souls amiibo that is Gamestop exclusive.  But other than those I am not aware of any others.

Thought you all might get a good laugh out of this . So I call a local Walmart and push the button for electronics. The person answers the phone and I ask if they have any Mario odyssey wedding amiibos. This is where it gets good

The worker asks me for what system, umm Nintendo I replied. The works asks what Nintendo do you want this for, so I mentioned the Nintendo switch.
I was put on hold and the worker comes back as says "no, we only have the regular Mario game" we don't have the wedding version.

So I just said thanks for checking and hung up the phone. LOL

I can't make this stuff up, and I was actually puzzled when I was asked for what system twice .
I was too confused and puzzled to laugh until the conversation was over.
C'mon Walmart , can you all get someone with any knowledge of recent and by that I mean within the last 6 months of games and accessories.

Not all Walmarts carry amiibos and not everyone knows what an amiibo is, also there are two Nintendo platforms currently on the market.

You are correct about not everyone knowing what an amiibo is. I thought every store in the country sells them? I haven't been to one that hasn't yet.
That particular store has sold them since they were put on the shelves and seems to sell a good bit of Nintendo items. It's a higher volume store than the one close to me. So they get the good stuff before my closest store does lol.

Sweet!  Thank you for the heads up.

 

I had all three of them ordered at Best Buy last year but was in the middle of changing jobs so I canceled the Peach and Bowser ones.   Of course when I was comfortable spending the money on them they were not available.

I have an extra zero suit Samus and Ganondorf if interested .
I have the rest in a box from I reorganized. I'm pretty sure I'm missing a few of the link/Zelda amiibos .

I'll have to take a look for myself and see if I have any of those as well as I could use 1 Twilight Princess Link amiibo.

Is there something special about the Detective Pikachu to warrant the price?

Edit: Just realized it's bigger.
