I'm not saying they're not popular but why wouldn't they be? They have Nintendo characters and of course they are going to be hot sellers. But it's just a matter time before this turns into the Rock Band/Guitar Hero fiasco.

The one thing I can say that's good is Activision is learning from it's Guitar Hero mistakes. They have released 4 games in 4 years. They were pumping 2-3 Guitar Hero games every 6 months.
Collectible toys for less than $15, that can be used in multiple different games, and can be pumped out faster than a full $60+ game, it makes sense they'd expand. Again, it's not like they do anything different like with skylanders. They state the amiibos work differently on different things. while I admit Skylanders have definitely overstocked shelves in the past (yearly sales on old skylanders is a given), it's not like people are going to be burned out. I mean, Skylanders is an $80 game, much like Guitar hero was, with devices that only work on later software, while newly released amiibos can work on older games designed for them. Amiibos are so weirdly unique and require so little investment.

I was really excited about amiibos when they were announced and when they came out, but its died down.

I wanted to buy one per month, but they are just releasing too fast, and the majority of the characters I want are all impossible to find. Not really interested in the Mario line at all. Toad being the only exception.

So I've only gotten two, I'll probably buy some more once I catch up in ranger keys, and legacy items. But I'm just not in any rush.

I have a full set for what's available in the US right now... aka Waves 1 and 2 are complete, Wave 3 I have Bowser, Toon Link, Sheik, Rosalina, and Lucario will be here by Friday from TRU.

I do have spares of a few that I might be willing to trade at some point (Captain Falcon, Pit, Lucario, Rosalina, Marth), but I'll look into that later in case I miss any.

It seems everywhere I look I'm completely screwed as far as finding Little Mac. He's the only one missing from my 23 strong amiibo collection.

May even invest in a second Lucario and Ike to add to my second Villager in case I need to start trading like crazy to get hold of the ones I don't have.



You can unlock music and character models using in-game tokens, which can be earned faster using StreetPass or tapping a Shulk amiibo to the system!

Luckiest Walmart trip ever!



It was snowing pretty steadily and word was going around on different Facebook groups that local Walmarts were starting to get Wave 3 shipments in. Walmart's online tracker was saying limited stock for Ike, but those things aren't reliable whatsoever so I decided to venture out and take a look. Ike and Rosalina were being unboxed just as I arrived! This is the luckiest I've ever been as a walk-in. Woo!

She's only a Target exclusive in the US. Since Canada's Target's are closing the figure was redistributed to regular retailers. Guessing poster is from Canada.

That sucks... Target has been horrible with distribution on her.
One guy I asked was a real dick about it, and said each store got
44 pieces and are not getting any more.

I find that hard to believe, but if it is the case... worst idea ever, Target.

Actually, Destructoid reported hearing that exact same thing. In fact, here's the original letter from corporate:



Third Highlighted section is the relevant bit.

So some stores might have gotten 8 of her, and that was it.

Again... stupid move.

I was honestly surprised when I saw a couple Toon Links and Bowser at my local walmart. They hadn't had anything in stock other then Mario, and a couple basic ones.

I was ready to start colecting these after seeing how much fun they were, but the absolutely stupid ass handling by nintendo has put me off. It would be like cancelling the vivik after one short release. Its just soured me on the whole line.

I had a sighting of Toon Link today while out and about. First time seeing any Wave 3 Amiibos outside of Bowser, who seems to be the one hanging around the longest. Will get a Sheik when I find her, and on the off chance I actually SEE a Rosalina I'd get her too.

A friend scored me a Sheik the other day. Best Buy in Baton Rouge also told him Feb. 20th was when they were putting out their Meta Knight shipment.

And of course a day after complaining about not being able to find a Sheik I found ONE today at an FYE of all places. Price sticker on it was $14.99, which isn't bad all things considered.
