My Sonic and Mega Man Amiibos came in today, bring my grand total up to 12. Mega Man's Amiibo looks incredible, honestly, and Sonic's not that bad all things considered.

Yeah, Game Stop was doing Shulk-orders for a May shipment a week or ago.

I'm still waiting for my Fox Amiibo to arrive in the mail...

I think Nintendo should just open up a store chain for all their products. And have it be in both big US cities like New York or Chicago and smaller US cities like where I live (only clue is that I'm in Northwest Indiana).

It's not like I wanted to be on a site that supposedly ruins lives! I'm only doing this to prove my strength to Noire!

There is one in New York I think. I'd be all for them expanding to other cities though.

Yeah, Nintendo World is a thing.

I miss when it used to be the Pokémon Center, though. Got a lot of rare (and potentially illegal had they not been official) Pokémon on my Gen II games there.

I wish Nintendo World shipped things. They're probably going to get a steady stream of amiibo even if most local retailers won't.

Is Mega Man rare? I found one at Walmart and immediately jumped on him because he's one of only three wave 3 amiibo I've actually seen in stores.

I preordered him back when that wave first went up for sale, since I knew he'd go fast.

If I ever get to go to New York, I'm certainly stopping off at that Nintendo World store. I'm sure they have quite a bit more one of a kind stuff there besides just hard to find amiibos.

So I checked and there are still 13 more Smash amiibo that haven't been announced. I wonder if they'll do it in one wave or two.

Hey, save some amiibos for me!

All I really need though are the Rosalina and Mega Man ones. I WOULD get more, but I don't have enough money.

[up][up]IIRC, Falco, Palutena, Bowser Jr, Ganondorf, Sheik, ROB, Mr Game and Watch, Jigglypuff, Duck Hunt, Greninja, and Olimar haven't been announced? idk if Mewtwo is getting one.

Also, the guy who bought all the Rosalina Amiibos is the infamous Youtube Troll Mariotehplumber. I've seen some of his videos a few years back (in my middle school years, so I was angered easily), and he is really dumb.

[up]You forgot Dark Pit and Dr. Mario.

I have a feeling Mewtwo will get one. We probably won't get generic Mii Fighters though.

edit: I'm just guessing but I predict there will be two more waves.

  • Wave 5: Zero Suit Samus, Palutena, Greninja, Olimar, Bowser Jr, Jigglypuff, and Ganondorf to round out the rest of the initial Wii U roster.
  • Wave 6: Game and Watch, Duck Hunt, Falco, ROB, Dr. Mario, and Dark Pit will be last because they're secret characters.

That would be kinda awesome if they gave that out as a prize at Smash tourneys. I'd want it.

I got myself a Fox Mc Cloud Amiibo.

I love the fact that I now have a figurine for one of Nintendo's b-tier characters.

I also notice that on his backside, you can see that he has a blaster.

I screwed up and accidentally bought 3 of Fox. I wonder if I could trade the extras for something.

Put 'em on eBay. You'll be guaranteed to make a profit no matter how rare or common they are.

I don't think Fox is rare enough for that.

Believe me, I've seen far more common ones get bought for prices that aren't even nearly worth it on eBay.

A quick survey of Amazon and Ebay shows that Fox is currently going for anywhere between $24 and $26. Any Foxes lower than that are being bid on and still have several days left.

For those in Western Washington there's a buttload of Toon Link's at Toy's R Us near the Tacoma Mall.

I suddenly feel less special.

Link and Samus get. Specifically, the last Samus in my area.
