1. It's off-topic.
2. It's polarizing (when do those discussions ever stay civil or intelligent, let alone both?).
3. The two, paired together, lead to a lot of reported posts (seeing a radical political statement you disagree with it highly likely to get you to report the post, I'm sure).


It's impossible to talk about amiibo without talking about politics though, this much is obvious. Plus, more political dialogue is good, I feel we are THIS close (you should see how little space there is between my thumb and index fingers indicating how close) in getting everyone to agree and change their minds to the correct side of whatever was being debated.

1. I said this in the other thread, too, but what does it matter if there's some off-topic going on when there's no news if the thread goes right back on-topic immediately after something new shows up? Also it was kind of on-topic about not buying amiibo from Walmart because they're terrible.

2. Yeah, normally, but in this case it was a tangent of a few posts that had already ended long before the mod started ranting.

3. I wasn't part of it, but I didn't see anything worth reporting unless you either work at Walmart or are foolish enough to take nextisland's posts seriously. Nevermind, just went back and saw one.

 

 

 

...Oh, wait, first argument of the thread. Carry on.

 

 

random shots fired so I know who reported me if I get nuked

So, to be semi-on-topic, what's up with the GameStop-exclusive Wii remotes? I got the Yoshi one imported as a Christmas gift from my mom over the winter (she tried to find one in Europe on a trip last year, no dice, so she ordered an EU one). Now, they've got Bowser and Toad? The Toad looks lame, but the Bowser is pretty neat. If I didn't already have Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, and a Pro controller, I might have picked up Bowser.

 

I'm also hoping that Pokken Tournament gets us some sweet amiibo and/or controllers. A Pikachu/Charizard/Mewtwo Wii MotionPlus, or (better yet) Pro controller, that'd be kick-ass. It'd be so awesome that the Wii U is going down in flames of disappointment, and I'd still throw the money out the window for such things.

I don't know if I've ever reported a post on here. No worries there. Which person is nextisland? I get confused sometimes, haha.

 

As for that second part, I agree, and it's why I mentioned how odd it was that the mod got so vitriolic so quickly. That's all I'll say because I expect furthering my opinion on that matter will get me the afore-threatened temp. ban.

No, on mobile that can suck up my data if it's 1 page of gifs (Best Buy ad thread). 

 

Plus 50 is enough for me.

Tom Nook is available again at Walmart. I wasn't able to get him earlier in the week, when I ordered Mabel and the Animal Crossing 3-pack, both of which are also available at Walmart.

3 GBs a month on LTE through the Deathstar. 

 

On our home internet we don't have a data cap.

I wouldn't mind a Gardevoir or Gallade amiibo, but Pokken amiibo would be only one step away from mainline Pokemon amiibo. No thanks.

I don't report, either, and that wasn't set for you. I saw your post in the ad thread already.

You're the CEO, and you're on a data cap? Can't you just steal some money from the GCU fund and up that? I'll sacrifice a week with another crappy Best Buy ad if the higher prices get Hubie Doobie Do the 10 GB he deserves.

I guess, but I had my staff personally put the best Wi-Fi router in my office. Plus my traffic is always marked as priority, so I don't use much data on LTE.

Thought i'd add this to the new thread. 

Since its now considered a "wiki". OP, feel free to add it to the main post. 

It's a good resource for those who may ask in the future. 

 

It's basically an image that shows exactly what each amiibo unlocks per game Currently, incl. JPN games.

South Austin TRU had both pink and blue yarn yoshi in stock when I was in there last night, 2 of each. At $17.99 each they don't look very cute anymore, and I wasn't too surprised to see them still there. I'm still really glad I decided not to get these.

If anyone is tired of waiting for FamiROB preorders, there is a seller on Amazon that has him up for about $30 shipped.

We all have to draw the line somewhere. Unless you're independently wealthy like good ol' Joly, that is. My line in the sand was AC amiibo.

Just popping in the new thread to ask about the Nintendo preorder pin set. Anyone remember what the qualifying games were and around what time in December to expect the pin delivery? I know AC: Festival was one, but I can't tell which of my other preorders count towards the promo.

Also, I heard there might have been a discrepancy in the terms. Instead of 2 games total (2 Wii U/2 3DS/1 Wii U, 1 3DS), I heard it might have actually been 2 Wii U OR 2 3DS games to qualify. Any idea?

Is there somewhere in my BB account I can see my status for the promo?

prayin for shipping confirmation

Has Mega Yoshi been available overseas? My TRU never limits people on Amiibo, and so any exclusive besides Bowser JR I haven't been able to get.

Wii U Games: Super Mario Maker, Starfox Zero, Yoshi's Wooly World, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Skylanders Chargers Starter Set, and AC: Amiibo Festival.
3DS Games: LOZ: Triforce Heroes, AC: Happy Home Designer, Yokai-Watch, and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon.

As far as I rememer, there wasn't a specific date for when you'd get a coupon (yeah, the terms say you get a coupon to redeem the pin set with). Just December 2015.

As for that discrepancy, I'd say that's false. If you check the BB forums, the reps confirm that all you needed to do was pre-order two eligible games.
That's the limit of my knowledge though. Idk if there's a way to check your eligibility online.

I have been putting together a list of production numbers to identify 1st Print amiibo for fellow collectors. I'm also looking for all differences between prints. If you want to help out, please pm me.

So the last one was locked, here is the new one.

Don't talk politics or argue.

Don't piss off the mods with reporting posts. If you can't take what someone else is saying don't report them unless it violates the rules of CAG.
