What will they do to those who arrive before 8AM on 5/28?

Tear gas and riot gear, clear out the squatters

I called a couple of stores. First said they were 'spoken for' as I'm sure 80% of these are. When I asked the second I got a, "...Yeaahhh...which one are you looking for?" He said I had to be there by 1 or it's going on the shelf. Held it for me but that kindness is reaaally hit or miss, ymmv. Seems like it's up to how their day is going/jerk level of customers on these, and not any kind of policy.  Said he was getting tons of calls yesterday so the rabidness is really ramping up. Nothing new though, gl.

Glad to know there are other CAG/amiibros in the 2-under-2 category! Congrats!

 

And more on topic:

I missed out on the WM wave last night, but only need Charizard and Wario (and Greninja), so hopefully can snag them on Amazon if they ever go up.  I HAD 2 Lucina and Robin from BB, but I cancelled one of the orders after seeing that one page that said "1 per customer" -- didn't want them to cancel both. 

 

What is weird is that with both this AND the jigglypuff line alerts I never got either of them? They didn't forward to my phone for some reason?

I didn't get them either, what the heck!? I vaguely remember my phone complaining around that time and was confused about the hour but didn't see anything. Only after I opened it this morning was it like, "...oh yeah, btw this happened." -.- Thanks line, but all of the Oh-SO-important splatoon and Toad alerts come through perfectly. 

 

Conspiracy I tell you, insomniac exclusive.

Hey - can someone send me a pm or direct me to the line group directions. I downloaded line to my phone, but trying to find the directions to joining the groups has been tough.

Should be on the OP I believe.

It's the pain of knowing a secret I can't tell. I'm just itching to complain about it. So many interesting characters left to be released and the two on the CPSIA site are just so boring (as characters, I mean - they could be posed any which way and I wouldn't care). I'm hyped for the Nintendo Direct so I can finally complain; however, if they announce the entirety of Wave 5 and not just the two on the certificate site - things won't look so drab so maybe I won't complain as loudly.

Well you're waving it in our face like a school boy lol, <singsong> "I know something you don't know."

 

It's pretty obvious though, sounds lilke Jigglypuff, who the heck cares about that atrocity, schoolgirl anime fans? (kidding, cool your jets fangirls xD) And the other....R.O.B? I'll never understand why that thing made it into smash. The original one was garbage according to AVGN, but aparantly someone at Big N is a fan. Wonder how they'll mount Duck Hunt, or do Olimar's helmet... hopefully no more 'urinesicles' as cags have so lovingly termed them.

This is really an April fools joke and platinum members will be getting a silver mario amiibo along with a choice of several more titles. Club nintendo is down so the joke was pretty well timed making it even more believable.

Well..it's also probably getting a ton of traffic with the news and people trying to redeem for their reward, but I see what you did there =P

I'm not collecting all :)

It's becoming pretty unreasonable at this point =P Only get the ones you really want!

 

Actually, having Amiibo unlock areas and items in game would be pretty awesome but hard to implement. You'd have to do cards like they're planning. Anyone else remember scanning e-reader cards to get Mario powerups? =D

No I don't mean that I sent the item before they pay. I mean that the eBay auction ends (with me as the seller) and the buyer just doesn't pay. Days go by and still no payment. Finally I open an Unpaid Item Case against them and they just ignore it. eBay sides in my favor but then I have to list the item again

Oh sorry I thought you were commenting in addition to the previous post about sending the seller back an empty box. Didn't mean to address your comment directly.

 

I can relate to the frustration with buyers that don't pay promptly, slows everything down. However I don't sell too much stuff and it's never really been a problem. You used to have more control over who you let bid on your stuff (to avoid crap like this) but it looks like eBay has forced sellers away from that, must have been an outcry of some sort. It's dumb, you should be able to decide who you want to sell to as a seller's general right to refuse service.

Aaaand eBay is flooding with MM N3DS lol. Gotta love listings like these with people clearly in their car with sweatpants, couldn't even wait to get home to list it xD

Jerkoffs, so ridiculous. Next time take it with yourself shaking hands with the employee and holding it up with a thumbs up.  Then laze back home to your bed and salty snacks to troll for more.

 

Good luck to those still looking for it to actually play/collect it, I got lucky for once.

Thanks again to the person who posted about captain falcon being available on newegg. They shipped last night. Now I play the waiting game to see how they arrive.

Should have been posted in alerts, missed again >.<

You want gold Mario or wii fit trainer? If you want gold Mario I would do that trade.

Take it to the trade forum/PMs guys, no cluttering.

That's odd. It's the same exact number on the actual Mario packageing.

So it is, but on the inventory checker I used this is the item ID that worked: 43814229

Maybe that's the item #/UPC and not the item ID?

I have class at 8am on Fridays, so I didn't think I'd be able to get a gold mario. I got a message from my lovely GF that she and her little bro went to the local Walmart at 7am and got one for me :)

Awww, dats so sweet xD Also good job for realizing education trumps collectible toys lol.

Went to my local Walmart for some food and decided to see what is going on with the launch. Employees at this store have no idea what is going on. They said that there is no plans for a line (it's a 24/hour store) but if people line up than they'll allocate as needed. The item will be sold at 12AM and not earlier though.

Well we're going to need more details...what kind of food we talkin' here?
