I find it ridiculous. Labo is stupid. I know so many people that have broken the ones they have bought. Nintendo wasting money opportunities by not producing more amiibo

I was hoping that they would still come out on the 25th, even with the Switch version being delayed.

Fyi multiple reports in the Five Below thread of various amiibo showing up, considering big chains are purging the shelf space they're probably taking in the dead stock

Actually the Animal Crossing ones may actually show up at a Family Dollar, or one of those true dollar stores.

I'm kind of glad for a lull in new amiibo.  I don't have the funds to buy a ton of them like before, with all the new video games coming out.  amiibo will be back, in time.  This should only help increase the value on the desirable ones we own as well.

 

It's pretty clear that Nintendo is going full force with Labo and trying to get people to buy cardboard for $69.99.   Those have insane margins.  They either don't want people to be distracted with other Nintendo peripherals on the shelves, or retailers don't have the additional shelf space allocation for more Nintendo accessories, but I'm guessing it's more the former.

Five Below is charging $5 for European amiibos that stores here couldn't sell the American versions of at about the same price because no one wants them like Lucas, Palutena and famicom ROB. They should be $2 at most.

The only thing that makes me think this isn't happening is that the date of manufacture is stale:

Date of Manufacture: Dec 2016, Jan 2017

If that's the case, shouldn't the rest of the line be re-released including the impossible to find champions.

I've had plenty of opportunities to get the giant guardian, but the price and sheer size of it has kept me away so far. It's cool and would like the amiibo features. I'm kinda running out of room to put these things.
If I can ever manage to sell my excess funko items, I will have plenty of room for all kinds of Nintendo goodies. Lol

I work for a Best Buy and have chatted with our two Nintendo reps and they seem unwilling to say if we will get much more amiibos in. But signs are pointing to no with any older ones. We got a crap ton of wedding peach and a couple more detective pikachus in last week.

I finally bit on Detective Pikachu. It's just too unique and too ridiculous to not get. I have to say, I was not disappointed. It's too bloody expensive, though--even with GCU.

Not as expensive as Mega Yarn Yoshi, but as display items they both rock.  I love having Godzilla Yoshi hovering over the other Amiibo on the SMB end of level display.  If you want them simply for their in game purposes, then yeah way too much for them.

 

I've got a feeling we are getting more of some Zelda Amiibo for Hyrule Warriors, and for the most part that's what we will get is a few re-released for new games and maybe a couple for the headline titles from here out.  I highly doubt we get a full run for Switch Smash, maybe more re-releases and a few new ones for the new characters that don't already have Amiibo.

Dark souls amiibo is available rn at GameStop. It might take a few tries before it actually goes through, I checked out with PayPal and it went through easily. Good luck!

Accidentally got two orders in. We'll see if they honor either, one, or both.

I'm not paying $15.99 +$5.00 for shipping.

 

I called the store and they have nothing available at the moment, but I expect that will change.  There is no amiibo craze anymore.  You have been able to find any of the recent ones at stores.  Just have to buy them promptly when they come out.
