    If you missed the 3:15 am et pre-order for Greninja last night. You may get one last chance on Monday, April 27 in store at Toys"R"Us. Chances are very slim tho. The Toys"R"Us rep said there would be​
    "extremely limited quantities per store." You can guarantee the scalpers will be pouncing on this one.​
    Target has confirmed that jiggly puff will be online and in store may 29th.​
    Last night best buy Canada sold out of gold Mario, But he was glitched out on Walmart"s Canada website​
    Today both Canada walmart and nintendo world store sold out of him. I wonder if all these new gold Mario amiibo have now made him drop out of the the rare tier. Seeing how there is no way to tell US or Canada amiibo apart.​

    All other wave 4 characters are sold out every where. There is still no word on when amazon will be taking pre-orders.​

    Necklace? Christmas tree ornament?​

    Is there some sort of auto purchasing program I can run on PC to buy items the moment they become available? Does anything like that exist?

    I havent been able to get any of the wave 4 amiibo.

    I only managed to preorder Ness and Pac Man. It's so stupid because Pac Man is probably the only common one for this wave.

    2 days ago it was coming on and off Amazon UK and thankfully I managed to pre-order one. It was the only amiibo of wave 4 I was missing.

    Ness, Pac-Man and Robin - Now just wait for them to arrive! ^_^

    I fucking hope they don't cancel any of them!

    Hope they don't either. I'm not a collector of amiibos especially as some are ridiculously hard to find

    Why does it suddenly feel harder all of a sudden to preorder amiibos this time around. Either awareness of how "wonderful" these are for scalping is spreading more to the masses or they are producing less than usual. I'm thinking the former but your guess is as good as mine.

    It's funny but I was thinking the same thing.
    Gotta make up that Wii U loss somehow, what better way than scalping their own products.

    No one would ever buy an amiibo from the store for $50-100+ but you slap a $15 retail price and limited quantity and bam, idiots come in droves to pay hundreds of dollars for a stupid little poorly made (dat Lucina amiibo is horrible) figure.
    People are incredibly stupid and exploitable, I would actually commend Nintendo if that's what they were doing.

    Scalpers make it worse but as long as those people are willing to pay the absurd prices the scalpers put up it's their problem, tbh.

    I'm not getting amiibos to resell as I've got enough stuff already up on eBay.
