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.

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.

REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Mario has always been golden in the minds of his fans. On March 20, Nintendo will launch the Super Mario amiibo—Gold Edition, a shiny gold-colored Mario figure that arrives on the same day as the Mario Party 10 game for the Wii U console. The Super Mario amiibo—Gold Edition will be sold exclusively at 3,000 Walmart stores in the U.S. at launch at a retail price of $12.96.

Nintendo’s amiibo are interactive toys that come to life in compatible games in different ways. This new golden figure represents the third Mario amiibo. The other two Mario amiibo are:
• The original ‘fireball’ Mario from the Super Smash Bros. series.
• A new ‘wave’ Mario from the Super Mario series available on March 20, for a limited time bundled only with Mario Party 10.

The new gold-colored Mario amiibo is compatible with multiple games that support amiibo. For example, Mario Party 10 features a new amiibo Party mode that players can only access by tapping their compatible amiibo figures on the Wii U GamePad controller to customize them and bring them into the game as board pieces. Players can also save items to their amiibo, then use them strategically. Or players can train their amiibo to supercharge its stats and expand its abilities in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U or Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. The full list of compatible games and amiibo can be found at http://www.nintendo....o/compatibility.

 

It's official boys, no preordering.

Lol glad you quoted absolutely nothing that said no preorder...but yet it was confirmed as "official"
