So I decided to place an order yesterday for the Loot Goblin amiibo and just got a shipping confirmation a few minutes ago, so their CS was full of it when they told me they had none in the warehouse. I'll call them tomorrow to cancel my pending order from February.

Ironically my order from February shipped today, didn't even have a chance to cancel it. Maybe me calling made them realize they screwed up. XD

Hi all, wanted to see if anyone here knew the answer to this. Given the recent reveal of FFVII Remake and nostalgia and whatnot, I've been looking at Cloud Amiibos on eBay. I'm trying to collect US releases like my other Amiibos (I haven't purchased too many in the last 2-3 years) but I noticed some of them have have English+multiple other languages and am confused.  

 

I found a few Player 1 variants with just English but most have Eng+other langues. But Player 2, I see they're all Eng+multi language. What's standard for a US release for these...?

From my understanding, the newer waves of amiibos and reprints of older waves all have multiple languages on the packaging now. I'm assuming this makes it easier for them to shift inventory between territories as needed, to avoid shortages like in the past where Japan may have stock of a certain amiibo that could no longer be found in North America or Europe.

 

I don't have my amiibos with me to check the Cloud variants for you, but my guess is that you're finding a lot of the Player 2 reprints on eBay. If I recall correctly, the Player 2 variant was originally a Gamestop-exclusive (when Player 2 Bayonetta and Corrin were exclusive to Best Buy and Amazon, respectively). The reprints probably outnumber the original stock by a significant margin. I was only able to purchase the Bayonetta variant originally and had to wait for the recent reprint in order to pick up Cloud myself. The female Corrin amiibo was probably the most difficult to find back then, and I'm still waiting for it to be re-released.

Nintendo was also going through a stupid phase (again) with retailer exclusives. Cloud P2 was a GS exclusive until the reprint went wide.

I'm so torn now if I should open my original print run Amiibo, without the multiple languages. Or pick up the reprints to open.

From a future collectible value standpoint, you should open the reprints if you can afford a 2nd set.

Isabelle amiibo back in stock at Best Buy

Sold out already.  This one seems to be pretty hard to get.  It was only up for preorder for a short amount of time, while the other two that came out today never went out of stock during the preorder phase.  Only 3 Best Buys in 100 mile radius even have it in stock (all limited stock).  I did get a preorder through Target but they havent shipped it yet.

 

It's almost like they saw how badly the Animal Crossing line sold, so they severely shorted the amount of Isabelle they put out there (despite it being part of the SSB line).

I sure am glad they made it so any given amiibo for a character works as a FP in Smash.

 

That Animal Crossing amiibo Festival bundle that went super-cheap on Walmart clearance and comes with Isabelle's winter outfit amiibo doesn't seem like such a crazy buy anymore, does it?

So the Bayonetta restock at BB was player one, not player 2 like the picture on the website shows.  Ugh.

Didn't see a single extra Isabelle anywhere today. Plenty of Pichus at Gamestop and those with a few Pokemon Trainers at Best Buy, but nothing more.

I preordered mine from Target at $15.99, but that was right when it was listed.  I did notice them raising the price to $23.99 later which was a little surprising since at first I thought it was a third party and not Target itself.  Official retailers usually don't pull that shit.

 

Also, mine got delivered today from Target despite never getting a shipping email.

That's a bummer. I almost ordered it for pickup but went in store and saw rows of it but no p2 even though they had it listed for 1 hour pickup.


Isabelle's sold out at the 3 best buy I stopped by, but plenty of Pichu and some Pokemon trainer.


I did pick up a mint Dr Mario to replace the damaged one I got on eBay for $5 or so bucks two years ago.

So you can only use one amibo per game
Meaning I can’t use Mario for smash bros in Mariokart or odyssey just for an example

Or maybe better would be Link , cross use for Zelda and super smash ??

Or just one amibo has only one use??

You can only store one games data on the amiibo but most games don’t store anything on them just read them.
