How much in USD?

Exchange rate fluctuates over time. I like to underestimate (ie expect to pay more than I actually will) with 100 yen = $1. When I add to cart, total with shipping to US is 2350 yen, so you can estimate $23 (likely a little less).

What's the best place to pick up the Japan-exclusive amiibos?  Monster Hunter Stories and Qbby.

Just did this and pre ordered MM11 from BB. The amiibo cost me a little more than $21. The stickers, patch, and cleansing cloth (plus shipping) were not worth spending nearly $70.

I got mine on Amazon US. Lots of third party sellers had them via Amazon shipping. The prices were fluctuating a lot but I paid around $70 for the 6 monster hunter and around $30 for qbby.

Does anyone have the Detective Pikachu game? I read online that the huge Detective Pikachu amiibo unlocks faster replay of cut scenes, but I was wondering if the regular Smash Pikachu did the same thing, or maybe something else... (Google wasn't much help on the 1st page or so, so I came here.)

Meanwhile, the wait for Ridley to go up for preorder continues.

I picked up 3 of the 6 Monster Hunter Stories amiibos for ~$49 on Amazon.  Now to wait for the other 3 to drop to a reasonable price, or go to Japan again.

So...has anyone seen the rerelease of Bokoblin yet? Apparently OoT Link, SSB Toon Link, WW Zelda, and SS Link were all approved for reprints but I haven't seen any. GameStop, Best Buy, nothing...

Thanks!  I got Ridley and the Inkling Girl.  Ridley was the one I was stressing about but with both of them I'm happy.

Also in for a Ridley. Looks like Wolf will be released on the same day (source below), so it should go up at any time.

Alas, gone are the days of new amiibo for $13 before discounts.

 

Got a Ridley order in, regardless.

No link for Wolf? Well, at least I got the other 2 pre-ordered. How many new Smash ones will there be?

True but still better than a scalper or having to import (I had to do that on 2 of the zelda ones).

Still enough to make me reconsider picking up Wolf right away.

 

...Well, that, and all the times that Fox & Falco went on sale for dirt-cheap, but still.

Grabbed two Ridley; Wolf looks pretty sweet, so I'll grab one of those as well once it's up. Funny how I've never used one of these things but they're nice enough figures that I have a small collection going now.
