I picked up some neon joy-con instead for $73. Not a Bad deal considering I'm in TX so I saved sales tax too.

Makes searching for specific amiibo frustrating for sure.

One of my local Walmarts showed 27 of Smash Link on hand. 27. Went there and didn't see even one. Asked the clerk about it (who seemed like a gamer...young guy talking about Gears of War to another clerk I think)...he said someone else came in the day before asking about them and they couldn't find them in the back. I didn't press it, or check out any other sections of the store...but unless Amiibo share a sku (which I don't believe they do), 27 is an awfully large amount to be missing...
They may pop up eventually...there were 4 LEGO First Order Transporter sets ($89 MSRP) I had been looking for a month ago but never saw...they had them out on Friday when I stopped by browse...tagged $59 but rang up $20 (bought all 4 for parts; I can sell the minifigs to recoup the cost). The boxes for the sets were a little beat up and dusty...
Unless those Amiibo might be somewhere away from the rest (there was even an empty shelf peg for that Link), I dunno...
Would have been a scalper's paradise, though...roughly $700-800 profit to be had from finding that many of them.
I've seen people mention that some of the smash amiibo DO share a SKU. Not sure if was here but I know the discussion has occurred.
Just yesterday I went to my Walmart because it said they had 2 Link and 2 Sheik amiibo on clearance for $8 each. When I got there the ONLY smash amiibo were 2 MewTwo amiibo. I would need to do some more diggin but it looked to me like the skus are shared or were merged later in the shelf life.

They were as low as $1-$5 dollars on clearance about 1-2 months ago but all shot back up to $34.88 about 3 weeks ago. If I could find one $20 or less I'd probably bite regardless.
Oh, and in my experience, this item's quantity count on Brickseek is way, way off. I went to 2 wal-marts that said they had 15+ in stock and none could be found and employees confirmed others had asked and they had none in stock.

Also wish they had micro SD cards but looks like no dice there.
