Honestly, when it comes to Wave 4, with all this nonsense about limited stock, and canceled or delayed orders, it wouldn't shock me if retailers just say F it and don't offer pre-orders. No sales until they actually have them in stock, only sell what you've got.

You shut your mouth.

Ok guys, I'm going to stand up from my desk to take a pee. Ike and Sonic will come in stock momentarily - be ready!

What are the chances of getting a script that reads the posts in this thread and sends a notification when a link is posted from a retailer? That'd be nice.

I'm really sad at how terrible this thread has been at catching Wave 4 preorders. Gamestop.co.uk had them, but they're already sold out of Ness, Lucina, and Robin (of course they are).


Sorry, just don't care about international Amiibo at all.

I'm going tomorrow after work to my bby to see what is going on for Friday. I predict a mess and they literally selling my preorder in front of me as I'm getting there Friday when the store opens.

Hey guys.

 

I hit the Dedede white Add to Cart button for probably literally the 100th time. It told me to Kindly Retry. Well, I did. With a fucking hammer.

 

I think I may be losing my mind.

I swear to god if something doesn't come up for preorder or up for order soon, I am going to go nuts and build an effigy of Iwata out of Peach amiibos and light it on fire.

Sweet deal. Are they NA amiibos?


They are but I don't want to say which ones in case they are claimed.

Regarding my collection and the discussion at hand, I actually married a game collector, so she brought a lot to the collection and it's a natural part of our relationship (yes, I'm very lucky). The game stuff is contained to this room - our house is otherwise normal. We paired down when we had enough of the "don't have it? Then I want it" mentality. Now everything there is either part of a complete set, something we would actually play or future plays on "young" collecting systems (I have about 20 complete GBA titles for that purpose).

And I don't mean hoarding like, "He's hoarding those amiibos". I mean, hoarding like the actual clinical definition of it. I have a family member that literally has a room full of video game memorabilia. Every single console box since the 70's is in there. Empty, with the console sitting under a TV somewhere else. There are graphics cards boxes from the 90's, "just in case".

Here's my current gameroom. (excuse the poor pictures)

Here's the old one before we greatly paired down the collection.

You were saying? Lol.

I have preordered or already purchased 60 amiibos. 29 are for my set. 24 have been sold or allocated to friends at cost. I have 7 extras left that, once I do a last call on my forum, will be sold here at cost to those who need them.

I don't really care to make money off these things. This may sound like bullshit but it's not.

Wait, you have a second account just in case they make the gold amiibo for the gold membership?


Indeed!

Okay hypothetical situation: gold members get the gold Amiibo. Platinum members chose between gold and platinum (silver). Which do you chose?


I chose both, because I have an account at gold and an account at platinum, for this very reason. I don't know whether to say lol or make a sad face.

Anybody magically know times rosa,shulk,lucario went live friday mornings? Get a good idea of metaknights timing maybe?

Rosalina was about 9am-10am EST. I remember I was home from Target by the time they went up.

 

Did Lucario go back up? No, right?

 

Shulk went back up in the afternoon on Wednesday.

 

As far as MK, different company, different rules. I'd keep an eye all week, tbh. Such is the price of amiibo.

 

Dedede still hasn't been up on target.com. Someone here said they spoke to a Target CSR and said their Dedede shipment was delayed. Not sure how much truth there is to that though as my preorder Dedede has shipped, so they definitely got some.
