Nintendo's Amiibo Thread

It's a sad day when not even the central stores can keep these stocked.

The exclusives, I understand. When something like Shiek is impossible to find, it's ridiculous.

I have seen an abundance of wave 3 here is western PA.
Lots of Bowsers and Shiek, with a few Toon Links here and there.

I hear lots of stories about these being hard to find, but I am not seeing it.
They seem to be just as well stocked as Disney Infinity singles.

^My local EB Games only receiced single a single Shulk each, as well as two DeDeDe and two Ike. It's nuts.

Sonic is apparently in stock at the Nintendo World store.

http://store.nintendo.co.uk/amiibo.list

The UK Nintendo store currently has 4 of the first 6 of Wave 3 in stock. The rest are due later this month. Not only that, but 15 from different waves are available to purchase today.

I was utterly shocked when I saw a single Rosalina on the shelves in GAME last week. I am very happy to have her as part of my collection.

How have we managed to make it 9 posts in and nobody is screaming about scalpers? It's almost as if people here recognize what the collectible market is like...

That aside, I'm a huge Amiibo collector, but am sadly far from NYC.

Thankfully in the UK, the Nintendo online store has almost everything and there are no retail exclusive figures like there are in America.

ARGOS and TESCO are also good places to check. My local ARGOSes had great stock of amiibo for ages mostly because amiibo hunters were too busy scouring amazon and GAME for them rather than considering to check ARGOS. Though that has since changed as the hunt has become a little more difficult.



My current collection, minus Little Mac which simply hasn't been in stock since December.

Probably because this is an actual merchandise board and we're used to this sort of stuff. Random Nintendo fans, not so much.

But yeah, the UK Nintendo site makes collecting them relatively easy. Too bad I missed out on the Ness preorders, but they've at least started limiting things to one per customer.

I've got no intention of getting a full collection anyway. It's far too much hassle and will cost too much in the long run. I'm sticking with the original twelve Smash characters and the Pokemon they release, since I'm sure they'll have some cool functionality in whatever the next Pokemon game ends up being.

Wave 3 part 2 is due at the end of february in the UK. I have both Shulk and Megaman pre-ordered. Nintendo UK has everyone from part 1 bar Rosalina in stock.



I managed to get Wario and Charizard of Wave 4, though like many I desperately want Ness.

EDIT: If the first post is edited, could we get this turned into an amiibo general thread?

In the Philadelphia area I managed to get all of Wave 1 on release day, then Zelda, Diddy, and Luigi closer to Christmas. Since then all stores, yes all of them, only had the remnants of Wave 1 (mario, kirby, pikachu, and peach) and those three from the 2nd wave. Quite honestly I'm going to wait until later on in the year before actively looking. If I can get them, great, but I don't see myself going through high hell running around only to find nothing I'm sure Nintendo knows of their newfound popularity, and will be stocking the shelves greatly (ala Skylanders when they first came out).

Quite the opposite, actually, at least in the US. Nintendo is aware of the popularity, but according to both major retail chain managers and smaller store owners, there's currently no plan to reprint the earlier waves or fix the shortpacking "issues". Most stores I've talked to can't order Wave 1 at all anymore.

In short, everything is working as intended.

Nintendo did state in their most recent Direct that Marth at least would be reprinted in order to meet demand for Project Steam.

This is why you Amiibo fans can't find her.

Future Shop burnt me badly last night. Promises Rosalina 'shortly' after 12 am PST, only to not code the item properly and for it to not show up in searches. Best Buy's showed up but wouldn't link to the item's page.

I just want my space waifu.

I'm so jealous of people that have the Villager.

I've got Bowser and Lucario, just need Metaknight and I'll have all I want from Wave 3.
