#12898216 New 3DS Animal Crossing Edition/New 3DS XL Hyrule Gold Edition, & Aqua Bl...

There was a clear reason why Nintendo did not bring the normal-sized 3DS to the US. We don't want them. A Small, annoying minority threw a hissy fit and Nintendo made it a (LOL) GameStop exclusive (likely re-using unsold systems from overseas). Now you guys get to pay $220 for it with Animal Crossing. VICTORY!!!!

Ok? Cool. It won't sell as well as a normal Animal Crossing game that was built from the ground up. This is a continuation so it was likely a lot cheaper to make. 


Clear. Yes, very. When sales for this are low, like Nintendo knows they will be since they have actual sales data unlike the small vocal minority claiming otherwise, Nintendo can point to it in the future and not release a "normal-sized" handheld again. I await the "Not fair that Japan gets cool faceplates and we got 3!" discussions.


There are reason why this and the Blue Vita are exclusive to the dying GameStop - big box retailers don't want more variations. GameStop will take anything it can to stay relevant as things go digital in the next few years.

I don't understand why you're so butthurt that Nintendo is releasing the normal sized New 3DS. So where is the link to this being Gamestop exclusive again since you have this elaborate theory worked up?

how do you guys know cost in u.s. dollars when you import from other Amazon sites? I was able to figure out how to translate pages on Amazon.it but didn't see my total translate to usd. I've been reading this thread for a long time now, but never considered importing until I saw you guys importing for $17.xx per Amiibo today.

Most cards convert it on amazon so you know and don't get charged foreign transaction fees, but if not you just google X.XX EUR to USD and it should pull up several sites for conversions.

Just received my wave 5 order from Amazon UK...used the cheap snail mail method and they still got here within 5 days of being shipped (no tracking but was estimated to be here July 13th), guess I will be going with that option more often now. First time I've actually preordered the EU ones...definitely worth it considering these arent out until July and September here.

This one is prominent. Almost looks like two pieces were used to form the Jigglypuff. Kind of a bummer really but wih it being an exclusive I'm not going to have any luck finding a replacement. I'll live with it.

Its supposed to be that way, it looks like two pieces b/c it is two pieces I believe lol

That was an internal information from a email, that is not meant for the public. Exclusive at Toysrus and Target were fairly easy to get if you were able to show up on release day.

They definitely weren't here.  Both exclusives were sold out at opening and there weren't enough for everyone in line.

Yeah, not the case in my area either. Target did not have enough for people in line but TRU was completely the opposite, they had double the amt of greninja compared to the number of people in line.

Um because i straight up said i am NOT interested in selling them. But of course like 90 percent of the messages i got you didnt bother to read anything just mememe gimme a ness! Shit. And yes people complained about shipping prices. Im not amazon i cannot ship these 2 day for free "just because." And yes my inbox has been completely bombarded with offers and most of them are crazy. I have a trade in progress and them im done with even trying on this site. No wonder people go to ebay. Hmm sell these for $75 each or ship them off for $40 spending $10 on shipping and getting shit talked to me in the process. I even got a message to "die scalper" Over a fucking amiibo. Seriously people?

Lol when you first posted, it was a "hey look what I got post" not a "i am not selling" post, sorry. Again, not looking to argue but what do you expect when you continue to post pictures of how many free cases of Ness you got? Even after you got all the initial PMs you came back and posted that you got more boxes.


And if youre going into prices, come on, $75 and $10 on shipping...Theres one on ebay now for $49.95 with free shipping, $10 shipping what are you looking to overnight it? I just shipped one first class for $3 and priority for $5.50. Again, I dont care what you do with them but what do you expect when you post that you just got 3+ cases basically for free. Kinda one of those cases you accept it and keep it to yourself or post it and expect some people to not be happy about it (and not even that really, as 95% of them are jokes).


Lol do whatever you want but dont act like a victim when you cant take jokes and result to being defensive calling people retards and acting like everyone is out to make you give them free amiibos that you got for free.

Are you still hung up on that comment?  Me making six figures isn't the point.  The point is how much is being paid by collectors relative to what the item cost retail.  50 amiibo's at say 15 a pop is $750, and the "expert toy collector" is paying someone $1500 to someone that casually clicked a few buttons on the net and waited for the items to arrive with minimal time invested.  $750 in free money is free money no matter what your salary is.

Lol can you please direct me to these people? I have obtained every figure and preorders the first time theyve went up for the last 3 waves but in no way, shape, form, or fashion did I casually click a few buttons with minimal time invested. Sorry but collecting these things has been worse and harder than my actual job, so I would not consider that "free" money. A figure or two, sure Ive gotten lucky but a full set, no way.

Havent seen it mentioned but the OlliOlli game is one of the only cross buy eshop titles, so you can use one code to purchase both the Wii U version, then it makes the 3DS version free to download. Extra OlliOlli code for trade or giveaway with the code you did not use.
