Would anyone be interested in an Amiibo side tournament at East this year (provided that you know everyone isn't having any issues grabbing Amiibos at stores haha)? I'd love to see how much training and good habits I can pick up from other players.

    I mean, if you're comfortable losing to my Marth amiibo..

    Actually he doesn't sword dance so well. I need to get a C. Falcon Amiibo.

    In short, yeah, totally.

    I'd love to get in on this! Though would it be items/no items? 1v1? That'll determine who I choose for this :P

    Most likely no items, and I'm ok with feeding as well. I'm still trying to figure out how that mechanic works still though. =P

    I would love to see an organized Amiibo tourney at PAX. How would you be setting everything up, Console Freeplay?

    I'd be down. My villager Bernard is annoying, I'd take pride in watching him win or watching him get taken down a peg

    If anything, I can always snag a TV in classic console and we can go from there! I do want to see how my Link will fare against other people. Considering I'm terrible at smash and he has picked up all my bad habits! =P

    That could be fun! I just got an amiibo the other day and I kinda wanna see how she does in Pokemon-esque battle situations.

    There's a bar on Tuesday nights that does a lot of things with amiibos. Good life bar hosts game night, board games, video games, and magic drafts.

    There might be something simular on Sunday Phoenix landing in central after pax closes.

    On that note, would anyone be up for trading Amiibos? I'm not missing too many but I'm willing to trade the doubles that I got?

    Sounds fun. My Pit is getting pretty powerful, more then my Shulk and Link. I'll most likely take one, since I don't want to lose all of them

    Well, my Ike still hasnt arrived from Gamestop so I may have to enter either Little Mac or probably Dedede.

    I'm gonna be bringing Shulk and Link for sure (not for trade at all) and maybe an unopened Bowser though they are pretty common so...

    Here's a snippet from what Nintendo is apparently planning on having at PAX East that I thought was relevant to everyone in this thread:
    Nintendo also invites attendees to bring their trained-up amiibo figures to the show to take on other players’ amiibo in the Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS game.

    Sounds like they might have amiibo battles on the show floor which would be fun.

    Here's the full article: http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20150226005272/en/Nintendo-Headed-PAX-East-Nintendo-3DS-XL#.VO9YqPnF-Hd

    So...an uncommon for unicorns? Sounds extremely fair.

    I have a spare Ike, DDD, and Shulk if anyone has something decent to offer for trade. Looking for exclusives/rares/unicorns.

    If you are expecting one of the big 3 or Ike, Lil Mac, or Pit than no, no one is going to take that. But if someone has an extra common and needs Bowser I wouldnt be surprised if you could make a trade.

    Yeah the only one of those 3 I want is Pit... who I already have. I'm thinking of just keeping it for Mario Party 10, and just opening it when it comes out.

    Maybe. Have they determined that sheik was uncommon? The sheik for the Rosalina should be more fair. I'm also saying that I'm liking for a villager.

    You're not fooling anyone. Without a doubt, Sheik is an uncommon.

    From Wave 3:
    Bowser's a common.
    Toon Link & Sheik are uncommons.
    Mega Man & Sonic are semi-rares.
    Ike, DDD, Lucario, and Shulk are rares.
    Meta Knight and Rosalina are the unicorns of the wave.

    Sheik for Villager (a unicorn as well), is a complete ripoff for whoever has Villager. Sheik for Rosalina is just as bad, if not worse, since Rosalina is a store exclusive.

    Rosalina and Villager are both extremely hard to come by, especially new in box. Sheik on the other hand, still pops up on retailer websites, and you still have a decent chance of walking into a store and picking it up off the shelves.

    I thought Rosalina was supposed to be uncommon. If that's the case, then i withdraw.

    Forget i said anything in this thread.

    I swear Amiibo rarity is demographic dependent. My area wave 3 is as follows:

    Bowser/Toon Link/Sheik = common
    Sonic = Uncommon
    Mega Man = Semi-rare
    Ike, Dedede = RARE
    Lucario, Shulk, Meta Knight = Very Rare
    Rosalina = The Unicorn

    Catch for Rosalina here is that we don't have Targets. It's actually easier to find the three retailers easier than her.

    I need to go check out some stores and see the rarity but so far Bowser seems common, and Toon Link uncommon

    So with the NFC capability of the New 3DS, Amiibo fights anywhere are going to be a breeze. One step closer to real life Pokemon...
    I know that Nintendo has some event set up for this feature. Maybe there could be a way to communicate to others that you are openly accepting Amiibo challenges in the Handheld Lounge or somethin.

    My point was: calling Sheik a fair trade for Villager or Rosalina is absolute BS. No one believed that, not during preorders, and certainly not now. They're not even close in terms of availability and demand.

    Right now, here in NYC, Mega Man and Sonic are becoming uncommons. Toon Link is fairly common, depending on what store you go to, and Sheik is still an uncommon, but still manageable.

    Meta Knights were such a pain in the ass to track down, because Best Buy basically gave everyone a big ol' middle finger. Rosalina is still the faithful Unicorn though.

    Well you never know, someone may REALLY want something. Luck perhaps, but I traded a Pit for a MetaKnight cause they've been trying to find one for ages. I personally just go for retail value ($16 CAD), probably cause I'm too nice haha

    I have spares of a few Amiibo available that I can bring to PAX or we can work out a trade post-PAX.

    I'm an avid Pinny Arcade collector, and would consider trading some of my spare Amiibo go for certain/multiple of pins at PAX East.

    TRADES AVAILABLE:
    Captain Falcon, Pit, Ike, Rosalina, Lucario, Marth

    All are the US versions. All are brand new. I have 1x available each of everyone, but Captain Falcon I have 2x. PM me if this interests you at all.

    I like the idea of a planned meet up where we can trade amiibos!
    I have an unopened rosalina, sheik, lucario, and star fox I would bring to trade for the ones I am looking for.

    If there is a planned amiibo meet-up, count me in!
