Will we ever get a reprint of the 4 exclusive Link amiibo? 3 of the 4 sold out way to fast for me and I could never find them for sale afterwards.


FWIW, the Twilight Princess exclusive got reprinted in July, but I'm pretty sure those were slowly trickled into stores because I was able to pick one up for a buddy in mid-August.

You can probably expect a Majora's Mask reprint soon.

Yep - confirmed in the screenshot I posted above.

Why not? There's been at least 1 Bokoblin reprint.


Nope, just the one run from Feb. 8, 2017 - I'm guessing a warehouse may have found an alottment at some point at that would explain any small restock that may have seemingly happened.

Nintendo's CPSIA sheet has all of the info to keep track of what's going on.

I mean, the proof is right their on their CPSIA of what's already being reprinted right now. They will undoubtedly be doing at least another 1-3 batches of BotW amiibo into the holiday season. I wouldn't expect Bokoblin to get any reprint, whereas most of the rest will, just possibly not multiple times.

Even exclusives and smash Link are getting reprints, the only thing I wouldn't hold my breath for is the three 30th Anniversary amiibo that released last holiday. If they do, awesome, but I think the likelihood is about 0%.

Went into 3 TRU today for Amiibo hunting. All had multiple Samus (expected) but two had no Zero Suit. At the one that had Samus Zero Suit, the cashier said people have been buying a lot of the zero suit these days. He said he had 20+ more in the back. I think the problem is TRU took Zero Suit off their web site (at least I can't find it), so hard to tell where they are.

After some chatting, the cashier told me that Zelda BotW amiibos reprints should be available in a couple weeks; but, I'd take that with a grain of salt, because I asked him about the Champions release date and he never heard of them. He said TRU's inventory goes out to October 2nd right now, so that's how he knows about incoming Zelda BotW stock.

Great cashier. I'm going back to that TRU (if they're still around).



I usually don't take much consideration of what anyone says at the store level of any corporation - usually the managers are the only ones who get the full picture, and even sometimes that generous. This cashier might be onto something though and just might be generall more informed on their own accord. Looks like some BotW reprints coming and a store exclusive Link as well.

In Topic: Target Clearance Thread XXII

Not exactly gaming related (though you could find good storage cabinets) but Target is quietly phasing out Threshold as a brand and YMMV but all furniture, bedding, and home decor is up to 70% off in-store ONLY. Things like coffee tables, entertainment consoles, cabinets, and bar stools are all on clearance for your gaming needs. Check brickseek before going to see if your store is offering deals yet, as two of ours are already and we made out like bandits on a few items. GL!


I didn't know Threshold was getting clearanced out, but I bought a house last year and have been waiting to pick up some stuff like bar stools on the cheap. Grabbed three of them for like $32.98 each a couple weeks ago. Grabbed some mirrors and other decorative crap for 70% off too.
