#12640511 Lego Dimensions up for pre-order at Amazon & Best Buy (release 9/27)

So.....where is the deal exactly since you posted this in the deals section?

Or is the deals section now a place for msrp prices on stuff that is widely known on products that will be mass produced in huge quantities?

I hope you posted this same type of post when the amiibo thread got put up...now look at it, rarely ever a deal and pretty much the most popular thread on CAG with over 2 million views even after a new thread was made. Its not that hard to look past a thread.

The Splatoon amiibos are the beginning of the end for me.   They are figures from a new IP.  There is no reason to want the Splatoon Amiibos when I have never played the game.   There is no sentiment, nostalgia, or reason to collect there. 

 

I think $750 to $1000 spent on amiibos is enough.  You have to draw a line in the sand somewhere. 

Yep, they are quickly losing me for sure...Ill be getting SSB and possible Zelda ones down the line. Thankfully that game got pushed to 2016 for Amiibo collecting sake for me, since it appears they are making amiibo for every damn game they make now.

What are people saying about store exclusives ? Nothing was even stated about that.

Yes it was

so how much are you gonna be selling them for on ebay, I mean, to your "friend"? You know Gold Mario works the same as Mario so needing one to use is BS right?

Jesus, its already starting and they havent even officially went on sale yet. At this point, who gives a shit if he bought 2 for whatever reason he wanted.

I'm starting to have that, "Oh no, why am I collecting these" moment.  My 29/29 is going up on craigslist soon.  Maybe I should have left them boxed.  Oh well.

Soon thereafter you will have that, "Oh no, why did I sell those" moment. :D

Anyone use Amazon.co.uk much? I ordered a WFT and it said expected date was March 13th. Might it take longer as its already been like 2 1/2 weeks.

If you chose basic shipping, yes it can take up to 4 weeks depending on how fast it makes it through customs. If you chose expedited then usually it skips customs. I ordered 2 villagers and they took 3+ weeks with normal shipping. I ordered 2 N3DS cover plates a couple weeks ago and paid the extra $10 for expedited and they got here in 3 days.

It was posted yesterday that the delay emails were a mistake so today they should be sending emails stating the original release/ship date.

Thank you for answering, if other people are using a system of limiting people and other stores pick up on that same system, we'll hopefully figure out certain triggers.

Meh, doubt it lol...I ordered two. Separate orders but both on same account, same card, and same address. I got an email for the delay for each, no cancellation yet.

Would the Smash Mario have the same function as this bundled Mario?

Yes, all characters that have already been made in Smash do the same things regardless of series/pose. Glad to see the bundle is literally just the game and the Mario Amiibo in normal Amiibo packaging thrown in a box...guess I wont have to buy the single Mario if/when its released on its own.

how the hell do you order 4 sonics by mistake XD

The mistake was he ordered 4 extras and Sonic turned out to be common. :)

Yeah, I was JUST thinking the same thing.  The margin for new games is ALREADY slim many times for retailers and they give you 20% off, a $10 cert (for some) plus points towards more certs... all I know is I made back the $30 in 2 days buying games from them and a TON more than that with all the CEs I've got through them (and pre-ordered -- I'm looking at YOU Witcher3/Halo5/etc.).

 

Even if they took that $30 and were able to realize it entirely in the current period or invest it, I can't see it being sustainable in the long haul.  Maybe there are just a lot of people who are buying it @$30 and never using it?

Theyre still making profit on games even with the discount. I think the biggest point of it is to get more people buying more games at BB rather than going elsewhere. I know it has worked for me. I got GCU free but now I hold out on games to try and get them cheaper at BB. Especially Amiibos, I have ordered over half my collection from them because of it. Granted there are always the occasional situation where things are still cheaper elsewhere, but they have definitely sold more to me than in years past. For instance, at this very moment I am debating on whether or not I want to buy Diablo 3 on PS4 simply b/c its 23.99 with GCU. I already have it on PC and dont particularly need it but that GCU discount has me contemplating it lol.

So its MSRP now, not a deal!!!  Hahaha...I'm still getting it.

Lol yeah, I feel sorry for anyone who actually paid $120 for it.

And another point, they aren't going above MSRP right now becuase of their usefullness. I'm curious what percentage of villager / marth / meta knight / WFT / Little Mac are actually being used for their intended purpose.

These things have an intended purpose? I am curious if Nintendo actually things they've hit gold b/c they think people love using them. I cant wait to use all of my Amiibo to get 1ups in Toad Treasure tracker...thats if I find time to sneak away from watching my Amiibo fight CPU characters by itself. :)

Yeah, I agree. It was listed as $49.99 for over a day though and that should at least be in their price history. If the rep I spoke with was accurate, it sounds like they removed the $49.99 from their price history (at least whatever they do to look up for price matching). If the $49.99 isn't showing up in their system, it makes it more difficult to price match and very unlikely that people will be charged that price when shipping (if their invoice doesn't currently reflect the $49.99). 

Yeah, I got the same run around garbage via email but then they stated that once it shipped they would grant me a one time adjustment of 9.97.
