The pin set shows greyed out "sold out online" for me. It was showing for your guys earlier? (I have my code email.)

I ordered mine.

I was asleep at the wheel, Lucas and Kicks are not available anywhere near me. Had to order everything for pick-up a state over (sounds inconvenient, but it's worth it to just be able to walk in and pick up 2 of everything in one place).
Hope it becomes available close by when these things go up for shipping.

(Still waiting on my email for the pin set).

Missed Lucas.   Fuck the Fuck.  

 

And Skymiibo's being sold individually at $25 apiece?  I like the designs as much as the next guy but someone's smoking some serious crack there.

 

Love how that was announced right after Xmas though..... Activision sure knows how to give the finger to it's fans.

Anyone snag any used amiibos in the Buy 2 Get 3 Free sale at Gamestop?  I got some Disney Infinity figures and Skylanders for cheap, but only a couple stores had any used amiibos.

The stores around me had primarily only the SMB series amiibos as far as used stuff goes. Maybe an occasional SSB Luigi or Peach.

I just bought 4 Amiibos that were in stock used on Gamestop.com and threw in 1 Disney Infinity figure.

With Buy 2 Get 3 Free the price was $23.98.  $29.93 after tax and shipping.  I got:

Zelda
Bowser
Link
Luigi
Disney Infinity Spider-Man

 

My daughter only owns Mario, Peach, and the 2 that came with Animal Crossing, so good deal for us.

Not really the place, but figure it would do some good here.

 

Bestbuy is sending out promo codes for those Mario Maker pins for the people who pre-ordered 2 eligible titles. The pin set is 75 dollars, but the code obviously makes it free for you. Seems like I'll be getting my set on Jan. 6th. Just a friendly post to keep an eye out in your email if you took advantage of that promotion.

Thanks for the heads up, forgot about those things.

Just ordered mine, try again :)

 

Looks like I missed the online order for my local BB, but the next closest one still had orders available, so if I can't get it there after launch, I'll just have to go another 20 minutes out. Glad this set is almost done.

Are the pin coupon emails coming from Nintendo or Best Buy?  I have a feeling I'm not going to get one because I didn't pick up my second preorder until a couple weeks later.  But if they're going out for Star Fox or cancelled preorders maybe I don't have much to worry about.

I'm debating whether or not I should get Shovel Knight... maybe later? I wish I knew the production run of these because I'm not super pumped for him. And I'm wondering if they price will drop since he's not as well known. Sort of like Tom Nook even though he just came out... This is sad: $7.24 http://www.amazon.co...7EH8QTTEJE4QXTX

Sorry if someone mentioned this already, but Star Fox amiibo is available on Bestbuy.com. I know I've been waiting for it to become available for the longest time on there. Don't know how long it's been up... :)

I don't know of any going out for cancelled orders but they only let the Star Fox preorders slide since it's not our fault it got delayed.

 

The emails are coming directly from Best Buy.

Yeah, same here. Pickup at my usual place for all the AC amiibos, and another BBY farther out in the opposite direction for Lucas. Now if I could actually be around when Shovel Knight shows up for pre-order again...

I canceled both of my pre-orders... still got the code/place my order.

Don't feel bad, it was only up for around 10 minutes. I thought I was lucky only to see it unavailable.

It is from Best Buy.
I preordered Zelda Triforce Heroes and Star Fox. I never went and picked up Zelda, and I got the coupon.

I've seen a lot of people saying this...

You guys do realize that BBY will let you change your order to shipping once the option becomes available? If it never does then you can just cancel it.
