Please if there is a god let there be a traditional paper Mario for the first time in 10 years announced its all I want. Will sell amiibo for new good paper mario

Seriously. Sticker Star was a great concept, but it just didn't work.

I've been on CAG since 2008 - and I cannot recall any thread to hit 10,000+ posts faster than this one. Pretty remarkable feat to do so in about 6 weeks. A dedicated and passionate bunch...


Thank Nintendo's pisspoor allocations for that. This thread should be about sales and discounts, not trying to find the damn things.

I would not believe them, to be honest.

How much profit you guys think I can expect to make on each of these?


It's kinda crazy that troll posts like this don't even get acknowledged with how this thread is going. That says a lot.

My Pit arrived from Amazon, completing wave 2 for me. Fwiw, I should have had faith in Amazon to finish the order, even if we were left in limbo for a few weeks.

 

And seriously, I'd gladly trade 2-3 Samus for a Marth. Samus is easy as hell to find around here. Fox not much harder.

 

I think the Fox/Samus zOMG R@RE calls are way overblown.

 

Also, I wouldn't give up a Marth/Villager/WFT just yet for anything from wave 2. You wouldn't want to trade them and find out Nintendo is getting the rest of their runs in stores over the next two weeks.

I'm saying people are probably underestimating the value of current gen games and the value holding them mint may be by the time we're 40-50. that's an amazing website but looking at PS3/Wii/PS2/PS1 games the chart has it going down a lot, which I believe will lead to people tossing their collection or not caring about it as much which will in turn probably result in a windfall to people who have. Taking that idea to amiibo's, I'm trying to imply that it might be a little too hasty to scoff at the potential value of these things, especially if Nintendo changes the design a little on 2nd editions (no smash badge maybe). 

 

Oh, then I definitely agree your call is spot on. I've collecting for a long time and my jaw drops regularly at some of the prices people are paying for a game like, as an example, Conker N64. You could get basket loads of new copies of this game for $5 from TRU. Now? Almost $90 loose. That's insane! The same possibilities exist for the systems you mentioned too.

 

Anything Sony and Microsoft are at least a few years from any sort of growth like Nintendo has in the past 5+ years. Now really is the time to buy PS/Xbox because the values are the lowest they'll probably be. 

 

 

And CAG's paying premium for this stuff? I agree that's a joke, esp. considering the amount of people that pop up here feeling comfortable trying to trade a Pit for a Marth :p. 

I see what you did there and I approve, lol.

 

What aré the chances a CAG would be willing to trade their extra Lucario for a Meta Knight or a Shulk?

Probably pretty high. Rosalina may be off limits, at least from a current perspective, just because of Target's gong show preorder situation. But the other three were available for such a long time that they should be interchangeable with a trade.

Who bought a amiibo from gamestop? Is the sticker easy to peel off?

Gamestop stickers get progressively harder to remove as the stickers age. Since the amiibo price sticker was just applied, it should come off very easily and with no damage. Wait 2 months, different story.

Between the TRU reinstatements and all the fail safe preorders I did over the past week, I honestly have no idea how many total extra amiibos I am going to end up with by wave 3. >.<

Just wait for the Nintendo world store exclusive amiibo. It's going to happen because Nintendo hates its fans.

lol They were actually trying to ruin GameStop.

 

Backfired.

 

lol well, I mean this promotion specifically.

 

It definitely depends on the employee/store for the HD. I traded mine in without however I think they would have took it as part of the system if I brought it. Best defense is 'I didn't get a HD with the system', which, in my case, is true.
