Target is now taking preorders on these 3. Available April 17th.

Do they allow in store pick up yet, or is it still shipping which they want us to PAY for?

Target Red Card is free. One card takes money directly out of your account and the other is like a traditional store credit card. Both have free shipping.

Yes you have the option of free home delivery or free store pick up.

Checked out the 2.99 animal crossing amiibos. None in my area. Pretty crazy since I have over 100 stores within 100 miles of here.

If you waited this long to pick up some Animal Crossing Amiibos, you probably waited TOO long. They have been getting cleared out all over the place for a long time. The hardly cost anything, some even going for $2-3 each.

 

With the new Animal Crossing game on the way, it is likely that a few of the Amiibos will be getting re-printed. But if that happens, they will be sold at their original price, not the sale prices they had already dipped to. You probably should have pulled the trigger when they were going for a song.

If they are still in box? Yes, that would definitely be a good deal. If they were not in box, I would say it would be a decent deal, but perhaps not the best deal. All three of those were reasonably easy to acquire in their own time. But each for around $10 is less than the original retail price, so not a bad deal, especially if you don't already have them. If they're still in box, that's a very solid deal, as mint-in-box amiibos usually go for close to MSRP or above.

Five Below seems to still have an assortment of the Animal Crossing amiibo. The one by me had five or six different individual ones.

Just bought 5 AC amiibo from Gamestop. They raised the price from $3 each to $5 each, Tom Nook was $8.

Glad you were able to find some and see the Gamestop website also raised the prices from $3 to $5.  Odd as the $3 stickers clearly said clearance on them when I picked them up Saturday.

 

I wonder what they will raise the prices to when Nintendo does the Animal Crossing direct and shows the amiibo support for them. Most likely it would be like when Xbox used to announce a 360 backwards compatible title and within hours a price hike......ah Gamestop.

I'm surprised we haven't see Amiibo pop up for the DLC fighters other than Pirahna Plant. I need them to do this so I know my Amiibo journey is coming to an end.

Sense the 3 reprints have a date of april 17. I bet new figures will come out then as well. That seems to be how it's been going.

Very good chance you are right. All that is left are the five fighter pass ones so the question is do they do all five in one shot or spread them out into two different release dates. Then we see about fighter pass 2.

Speaking of Animal Crossing Amiibo.  I never found summer outfit Isabel.

I still wish Nintendo would make Amiibo cards for every Amiibo.  Those knock-offs and the ones with bad artwork are starting to look good to my wallet.

Yeah, I was just at Five Below this past Saturday and they had a bunch of different AC ones in a wheelbarrow by the entrance.  $5 each.

You are safe for now as no new Animal Crossing amiibo's for launch but the direct did mention they plan to support additional characters in the future. Have to see if that means cards, figures or both.

 

Let's see how long it takes for Gamestop to raise the prices of Animal Crossing amiibo's. :shame:  They are still $4.99 to $7.99 at 9:46am East Coast Time.

While it is possible that they create new amiibo, my interpretation was that they were going to add support for existing cards/figures over time.

You can interact with the amiibo characters (figure or card) on a special island called Photopia where you can participate in special photo shoots.

Is that all that happens? Doesn't affect "normal" gameplay? Just it's own separate thing?

The character cards will give you the option of having them set up camp on your island. From there you will most likely be able to chat them up and convince them to move in, but that hasn't been confirmed yet.

Scanning allows you to bring the villager to your campsite and you can invite them to your island. Looks like you also get their poster by scanning a villagers card, according to a Japanese screenshot I saw on Twitter.

The GameStop by me just got in a shipment of Animal Crossing Amiibos. They were at $4.99 and $7.99 price points. I saw Celeste and Kicks which I bought. I also saw Blathers, Kapp'n, Mr. Resetti, Lottie, Rover, and maybe two more.

Five Below has 7 of the AC amiibo in stock online, they were sold out of Kicks when I ordered last night. Think he's the only one I'm missing after a trip to Five Below last weekend.

Glad I got the AC amiibos for almost free on ebay with $5 discount coupons last year.
