    If you're talking about AMIIBO's then Little Mac, Shulk, King Dedede, and the gold mario one are in short supply....... for now.....

    Yeah that's what I meant. my phone auto corrected me. it's a shame I don't know who most these characters are. I read that what ever marth. Is Nintendo is doing another shipment soon. And shulk. Is the gamestop one and gold Mario walmart? Only place around me that carries them is gamestop and Wal-Mart and Meyers. So those are the only places I'll be searching

    It will be very hard to acquire all of the amiibos now. A lot of Wave 2 and 3 are very very rare. God speed. Nice diary too :D


    ::EDIT:: I may have misread, but I was under the assumption you were going to catch em' all! if youre interested in the Zelda series ones, they are all easy to come by, although Toon Link and Shiek are rarer than Link, and Zelda.

    You should also look out for any cool lookin ones but that varies by opinion. To me, Meta Knight is one of the coolest ones! Then Mega Man, Sonic, Lil Mac, Pit, and whatnot... Soon Wave 4 will come out with Charizard and Pac-Man.. Those are cool too.

    I seen these. Before I even got back into Nintendo. But replaying the Zelda games has me wanting every Zelda. Thing I see. My gamestop has every Zelda. and the original Nintendo characters like Mario Luigi peach yoshi bowser and Kirby. but no toad. Wal-Mart's the same besides only having the actual Zelda and only one of the gold Mario. I think the last time I was there. I seen one gold Mario So ether there only putting out one at a time are They aren't popular here. I've decided to go back next time I have extra money and see if they put out another one so I can keep one and sell one. My goal is to buy the ones I like and if I happen to see the rare ones I'll buy one or two. And sell the extra to get the others. I want

    You should keep an eye out for those Amiibos which you actually want. I wouldn't worry about "limited supply" - what good is a Wii Fit Trainer Amiibo when nobody likes the character?

    I like charzard. Fav pokemon I'm keeping this in the boxes because the box art looks nice and I can't even use them yet anyways. my game stop had megaman. I chose yoshi. Which I think. Is wave one and it was only 10. And its selling for 16 to 20. On eBay. Btw that's not a diary. I'm a 25 year old male and have no use for one that's my 3 year old daughters doc mcstuffing. Table

    Supply and demand. a true collector will. Want every one if the demand Isent there at first. they will be very limited makeing. The price skyrocket.

    Its the same way with numismatics (coin collecting is my main hobby) the coins long ago. That no body saved. Or collected are now worth 1000s. I wish Nintendo would. Release production numbers so we can guess what the future holds for value

    This depends on your definition of "true collector". Numismatics don't tend to collect various revisions of the same contemporary penny, they'll go for the rare, unique editions, preferably old ones, ones relevant to their interests. What you're saying applies to completionists more so than collectors. Not collecting items you're not interested in doesn't make you any less of a "true" collector - collecting certain things makes you a collector by definition.

    The only ones that only go after the rare ones. Are mainly looking to profit most coin albums have spots. For every. Varation. my Lincoln cent album has holes for all 7 types of the 1982 penny because it came in copper. Copper zinc and small and large. Date. these albums are made to hold complete. Sets. Most goals for coin collectors are to have every year. A type of coin was made including each mint mark. A error coin collector. Would fit more into what you have said. I understand what you are saying but I didn't mean true as in the only real collector. Collectors will collect what ever they want. I was referring to the ones that collect Amibos and don't care what they look like and want to have a complete set. maybe. I used the word true wrong. I was trying to separate the ones that are Only buying for profit or the people who just buy one or two to use. Like if a coin collector is collecting president dollar coin and one is minted and they don't like. How it looks or if they don't care for that president there still goin to buy to keep the collection going

    Fair enough, thanks for clarifying. You're pretty hardcore about your collection, I'm like that with my consoles and old computers - I'm even buying the ones I don't particularly fancy, because, y'know, they exist. :P

    I'm the vice president of my towns coin club which has been around for over. 50 years. as we speak I'm going threw every coin and and album. I have a and writing down what I need. My club is putting on a pretty big coin show with tones of dealers at a casino. Might as well buy after I'm done setting it up lol. Just like these amiibo. I have no problem buying things I don't need or don't like if I can make a small profit because then I can turn around and sell and use the money to buy things I need for my collection. Seeing how I work part time and support my wife my 3 year old ( will have another in a few months) and my mother and only working part time all my money that I make goes to support my family. So what little I can spare for my self if I can use it to make more money to get the things I enjoy I'm happy

    When it comes to Amiibo this is wrong. This mentality makes no no more than a scalper looking to make an easy buck from the real collectors. What you should really do is go over the the reddit Amiibo community and trade the less fortunate on that thread for the ones they actually want (like Gold Mario).

    What if I told you that the rarest Amiibo hasn't even been announced publicly, yet?

    I decided to keep my gold Mario. trading would be cool. I just found the Reddit stuff last night wile researching amiibo. But I'd rather not send him out to a random stranger. What's the difference in selling these and going to yard sales to buy things to sell. Its not like I went to the release And baught 5.

    Lol had to look at your picture area to realize what you meant. ok so.... what is it
