Honestly, the biggest people that're going to get burned is the people hoping to use it as trade bait. This is actually good thing for scalpers because it means they can short sell with less risk
It's impossible to get burned unless you pay above retail, since any amiibo can be returned to the store, at worst receiptless for store credit.
A story my friend likes to tell: a guy reserved 11 Halo 3 Legendaries to flip at his Gamestop. When he failed to sell any, he just returned them all. They sat in the back of the store until they were new used and the LE parts were thrown away/taken home.
