Has anyone tried ordering over the phone?

First wave here, too. Got the delay email.

Better than a cancellation email, at least!

Need some advice guys.  Thank you in advance.
 
After I purchased one amiibo (link), I grew into an obssessed maniac somehow collecting the entire wave 3 set.  I am now relieved with some what peace at mind for now (until preorders for wave 4 drops).  A part of me wants to continue to collect them all.  However, I do feel that this is taking way too much time and effort hunting and feel like selling my collection and quitting.  What should I do?!  Continue collecting, sell now, or store my current set away and forget about them.  If I store away, I really believe the value of them all will go up, especially if Nintendo takes the Amiibo Card route and drops the figurines indefinitely.  Insight ?


Hmmm. Quite the predicament, indeed. Luckily, it's an easy fix.

Give me your Ike.

There was a price mistake on a refurbished desktop at Best Buy last night for $21. It didn't last too long.  http://www.bestbuy.c...5&skuId=7801903


Wut. I'm never sleeping again.

Congrats to everyone who got their JP wave 4 preorders in. Waiting for NA to go up because I'm OCD.

Is Kirby worth getting? I'm on the Fence since you really never look at the tv while playing. I loved Toad so if it has that style to it than I will grab it.


I'm enjoying it. Very cool gameplay, lovely art style, and stellar music. Only gripe is you hafta watch the gamepad, not the TV, and it's pretty short.

First ticket! There's about 8 people here now, and only 7 Metaknights available. 1 per customer.

2 Ikes in stock, so my friend and I plan on grabbing those. Well worth waiting outside.

You have got to be kidding me.


Oh wow, Wal-mart, I hope your stores are ready for that type of pain.

I bet their customer service associates are watching instructional videos on how to apologize and give away $10 vouchers as we speak.

I swear, my local Best Buy is on some shit. I called to get an idea of how many of MK and Ike will be on the floor for sale on Friday, and the lady said "less than 3 for Ike and I can't tell you how many for the other one. It's just our policy on this product".

What? There is always something with this store overcomplicating things, not to mention they have no intention of making this an organized situation (no limit, no tickets), but now you can't tell someone if you have enough to sell to regular customers at opening?

She even said given their popularity it would be best to call to ask that question the day of, but they will likely sell out at opening.

What sense does it make to call while people are storming to buy them all to find out how many they have in stock knowing they'll sell out IF they even have enough to sell in the first place.

My brain. Melting.

Sweet! Just got them! Both look fantastic. Guy was really nice, said he has a lot more he'll let me know about. Oh, and for all of you saying I'm contradicting my statement, where I am, they would be $14.07 each with tax, if they were from TRU it's $15.18 a piece. So it'd be at least $28.14 for them retail. And considering he drove from Edmond to here in Del City, which is a 56 minute drive by highway, that means I would've payed him $1.86 for gas. Pretty damn good deal. So go back to whatever shitty public school you went to and learn simple math.

Brb using imagination since no pics.

Sounds like quite the samaritan, this one.

Hoping Ike goes back on sale in the wee night. One less I'd hafta worry about.

Little Mac gonna be a bitch doe.
