    Do you think there is any truth to this rumor? If it is true, what kinds of pros/cons will this ensue? Will something like this put a dent to scalpers that resell new Amiibos when they launch? Should more stores embrace this idea and allow only one Amiibo per customer?

    I saw people carrying 8 or so Amiibos in their arms at Toys R Us at the Wave 4 launch all of which were Greninja. It was horrible. A strict rule of one per person may be the only thing left to do.

    Somwhere you can never find.
    when I picked up my greninja at toys r us, there already was a sign on the entrance saying amiibo line starts here and only 1 of each per customer, and of course there was a line. but an hour after it opened every thing was sold out, I actualy was the last one to get greninja.

    Huh, if only there was a way to alleviate scalping and hoarding... oh like producing more at a time, Nintendo?

    My toys r us had about 150 greninja. I should of got multiple and traded them for robin/lucina/jigglypuff since those are the only 3 I still need. Very stupid of me.
