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

Glad I jumped on these last year too. I think I spent about $30 for all of them.

I put up some shelves and relocated my amiibo collection. I moved into this house last year and the ledge against this wall left a lot less space for the standing shelves I had them on. This is going to open up the floor quite a bit.

Best But finally has the Piranha Plant and King K Rool reprints up for pre-order, complete with in store pickup.

Awesome!  Thanks for the heads up!  I purchased it during the initial release but my daughter loved it, so I gave it to her.

Glad to help! I already have a Piranha Plant too, but I can't resist buying another.

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.

Pretty much the only ones on Gamestop's Buy 2 Get 1 sale.  Half the price too!

Anyone looking for loose Zelda amiibo? Amiibo trade thread is dead so figured I'd ask. Sold through most of my collection, have a few left if anyone needs some loose figures. Not really worth making a trade thread for: Revali, Young Link, Wolf Link, Link (Awakening)

 

Let me know!

Thanks!  It's been so long since I've seen this thread bumped.  I was really hoping it was something worthwhile.  Unfortunately, these will be the first amiibo I haven't been able to purchase with GCU.  Luckily, I have $10 in certificates.

Rest in peace GCU. These are the first amiibos I will be buying in 5 years, but it is two of my favorite series. Hopefully the pre-orders hold, I don't want to return to the old days of hoping and praying every time I went to a store.

GS has the Amiibo available for preorder on their site, but shipping kills at $6/per figure. Not sure if they are available in store or not.

Yeah, these are my first two without GCU.  Liking both of the characters a lot softens the blow a little.

With stores that close up shop not refunding preorder money, I'd proceed with caution.

I don't think that's true. My closest store closed up earlier this year and they said if I wanted to keep the preorder it would just transfer over to the next closest store. But I had only done the preorder to get a trade-in promo so I was able to get my $ back just fine.

I have some AC amiibo card duplicates I'm trying to trade/sell. Anything in particular you're looking for?

I have most of the first 100 AC cards I've been too lazy to do anything with.

I don't mean to hijack this thread either, but I inquired about Splatoon amiibo like 2 years ago in the trade thread and nothing. So if anyone has any of them (besides the OG 3 pack and the Octoling pack) for a reasonable price, lmk.

One of the good things that’s come from this covid pandemic is the significant reduction of neckbeard man children stinking up our retail stores. I haven’t encountered any as of late in stores like Best Buy, whereas before neckbeards we’re running rampant buying ammibo to bring back to their mother’s basement. Anyone else notice a trend of seeing lower numbers of neckbeards?

I mean realistically speaking those neckbeards are the ones who were staying at home most anyway. So you'll probably have to deal with more after this all if it keeps picking off the rest of us

I was definitely a neck beard while working from home 100%. Now that I’m able to come into work when I have a need went 100% clean because of mask-beard irritation.

Amiibo wise, I need an Eevee amiibo for the love of god... even a cheap knockoff ! :)
