I had to talk myself out of a Ken today. $16 is just too much for these things. Looked cool though.

Told myself the same thing, then I went and bought the 4 Zelda amiibos from Best Buy for $64 plus tax.

I sold a good chunk of mine around the time the switch smash came out, telling myself I wouldn't get sucked back in. That has been very hard

Almost sounds like they are price matching Walmart (since WM uses $.96 pricing) but I can't seem to locate them on the Walmart site.

Picked up my Best Buy pre-orders on Saturday. Got Young Link & Ken. Although Daisy came out great too I gotta limit myself & pick & choose. Right afterward I walked across the parking lot to Target. Noticed they had zero shelf space for their amiibo any more. Sucks. Best Buy still does though & they had a bunch of Lil Mac’s on shelf. About 7 or 8 of em’ I’d say.

At Target all the amiibo are just crammed into a glass case in the Nintendo section. Lol. They had about 3 Ken’s, 2 Daisy’s, about 5 Young Links and for restocks they had about 6 Sonic’s & I even saw 2 Bowser Jr.’s. When I spoke to the employee in electronics he mentioned they had even more amiibo behind the counter. He had a couple each of the new ones back there & even a couple Meta Knights he said. Great to see the restocks are trickling out to stores finally. Haven’t stopped by any GameStop’s lately but cool to hear people are getting SSB Wario, etc. As far as restocks go I hope to get a SSB Diddy Kong & Luigi & still need a BOTW Archer Link. And SSB Snake will be getting pre-ordered with the quickness as soon as he goes live on Best Buy. Not going for a complete set, just go for the ones I like the most.

Also worth mentioning, at a different local Best Buy I noticed they don’t have any shelf space for amiibo anymore. Also couldn’t find a glass case or anything with amiibo in it. Maybe they’re store pick-up/online only at that store now. Not sure.

Amiibo wish list:

SMB series Wario, Goomba, Boo, Donkey Kong & Diddy Kong. Also Skyward Sword Link, Poochy & Qbby

I have a major surgery coming up at the beginning of May, so my ability to follow all of this stuff is going to be severely diminished for weeks. I really, really hope that we get a pre-order for Snake before then, as I badly want to lock that one in.

I’ll try to snag an extra pre-order at my GCU price (plus like $3.00 for media mail shipping) just in case you need it. I’ll message you after I lock em in to see if you’re able to respond. If not, I’ll just hold it for you until I hear back.

Update to my previous post. Went back to that Best Buy. Found their amiibo section. Must of walked right by it that previous visit. They were completely sold out of the 3 new amiibo but had a decent selection of some others.

Following up on this, the Daruk amiibo is now up on Best Buy as well. For anyone else who missed the Breath of the Wild Champion series the first time, like me.

I threw an order in at BB (with GCU) for the four BotW Champions and the three new Smash Amiibo.

Originally passed on the BotW's, but kinda been wanting them now since I finally played a good chunk of that game recently.

Isabelle is already sold out at Best Buy?  If it comes back in stock can someone please post here as I'd rather pick it up with GCU discount.  Was able to get preorders for the other two.

It will. Plus it will be in stock at other stores. And day of release they allways come back in stock even of only for a few hours or so.

Two of the three I saw last week were still at my Walmart, I noticed it was only $12.96. I bit. As soon as I got home, unboxed it, and placed it on my shelf, I questioned the purchase.

 

I've only spent $55 on entertainment stuff this year outside of streaming services, so it's not so bad....but still...

 

All I can say is thank god there's no WWE Legend amiibos. I'd be in trouble then.
