This is my first try at getting an Amiibo (Ness at that ) and was wondering when it'll be announced and what's the best vendor to go through to pre-order it? Thanks guys.
First off, don't do this:
The best? Newegg. Definitely newegg.
It will be announced when you're sleeping, showering, eating, making a long distance call to auntie, shopping, reading, watching a movie, playing a game or otherwise not looking.
Here's the problem: the preorders for the next wave, which include Ness, will probably be gone at each retailer's site within an hour. It's that crazy.
Your best bet to avoid this craziness is this: when you hear that Gamestop preorders went up, that day or the next day if it's later in the day, IMMEDIATELY go to a Gamestop and preorder it in-store. Online GS preorders precede in-store by a business day or less - this was the case for the MP10 figures.
The window will be tight, but in-store Gamestop has lasted the longest for amiibos, the Majora's Mask LE and the New 3DS Majora's system.
