Except OoT Link is literally available for pre-order on their website.

With $10 shipping.  Or just order a game to go with it and return the game to a store, but that means you go to the store anyways...

 

I would say to call around.

He was released yesterday in all GameStops to coincide with the release of the new horribly broken Switch game.

Well I caved and bought the Japanese Skyward and Twilight Link amiibos off ebay. I had an ebay bucks promo, and I wasn't going to miss getting these guys again. Due to the recent reprints there are a lot of sellers from Japan with stock, and they're undercutting each other pretty good. You can get OOT, Skyward, or Twilight for less than $20 each.

Thanks, ordered both with my GCU discount.

 

On a side note, I hate how BB automatically defaults to store pickup now for everything for me.  And when I changed it to shipping it warned me that the contents would ship in the manufacturing packaging (which I highly doubt is true for amiibo - what are they, just going to stick an address label on each one?

They did that to my Labo Kit box, just stuck the shipping label right on the front and mailed it :shock:

I have never had bestbuy ship anything in its original box. 80% of the time pack in another box or bubble mailer. Of course in bubble mailer when it should be pack in a box lol

Nintendo really fucked up not making a Gooigi amiibo.

That would have gone good with the release of the game.

TBH I'm just kind of annoyed they didn't at the very least add any functionality for the existing Boo amiibo. Buy yeah, a Gooigi amiibo would have been an instant buy.

Well, a Gooigi amiibo would have probably required a translucent plastic. And most amiibos are actually constructed of multiple pieces that have been glued together. A semi-transparent green Gooigi would make that part of the manufacturing process much more apparent, and a version that didn't have some manner of see-through element just wouldn't be authentic.

Gooigi isn't "see through" so wouldn't have required any see-through element. They should have done a three pack with Luigi (Luigi Mansion version), Gooigi (glow in the dark solid green version of the Luigi one) and Polterpup.

That would have been a instant sell out. Would have been cool to have it.

Looks like gold shovel knight is releasing December 10th according to best buy. Wonder if the 3 pack will be the same day.

I'm guessing the 3 pack will probably release the same day as Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove's physical copy.  Who knows, maybe Treasure Trove will come out December 10th as well.

I'm expecting the next delay to be announced around that time.  Because you know it is coming.

The Gold Shovel Knight release s a weak peace offering.

Well I'll be, they announced Dec 10 as a release date for King of Cards.  Best Buy just updated the triple pack for the 10th as well.

I was surprised at that too.  December 10th has suddenly become pretty expensive for me.
