      Okay, I now have two Captain Falcons.

      Anybody have a spare Pit, Sheik, Lucario, Rosalina, or Meta Knight they want to trade?

      PSA if you ordered any Amiibos on Amazon that say they are shipping in March:

      * Click "Change shipping speed"
      * Select the same speed
      * Click "Confirm"

      Enjoy:

      (Also I just got my Lucario from my TRU online order today. Yay... box was kind of shit - plastic part was barely attached and coming off - but I open them anyways so "meh" - the figure is fine and that's all I care about)

      How the hell did you order a Sonic amiibo? It has literally never been in basic stock from my checking. It was all just second-sellers and it's currently unavailable completely.

        I'm kind of regretting not getting Sonic. I didn't pre-order him because I have a 6" action figure of '90s style Sonic sitting on the shelf next to my amiibo shelf. But then someone here pointed out that its a Sonic figure made by Nintendo and that situation is so delicious.

        Okay, so I currently have:

        Peach
        Zelda
        Little Mac
        Wii Fit Trainer
        Toon Link
        Bowser
        Pikachu

        I have two Rosalinas on the way from Target that will show up Saturday. I am trading one of these Rosalinas to a friend for a Shulk.

        Today I just preordered the Mario Party 10 bundle with the new Mario amiibo

        So apparently Sonic really is fast since even though Amazon had a March 2nd delivery date for him, they're already shipping.

        I assume the new Mario amiibo will be available on its own eventually. I don't really want to buy Mario Party.

        That seems like a smart play from Nintendo though.

        "We need to drive WiiUsoftware."
        "Okay, let's create an exclusive Amiibo that comes bundled with each game!"

        So the new Fire Emblem will have an exclusive Chrom Amiibo, new Metroid comes bundled with Ridley, etc.

        Ooh, they could bundle an exclusive Wind Waker Ganondorf with a limited edition WiiU to drive hardware!

      • KrathoonKrathoon Registered User regular
        Yeah. I was wanting Shulk. To Ebay!

        Wii Music U bundled with Geno amiibo.

      • KrathoonKrathoon Registered User regular
        There seem to be allot of Japan imports on Ebay. You tend to have to pay double though.

        I see a set of Shulk, Rockman, and Sonic that seems pretty good.

        GameStop has the Mario series figures up for preorder now. Toad is already sold out online but still available in store last I checked.

        Mario figure appears to be only in the bundle.

      • RiokennRiokenn Registered User regular
        Yup. I believe the only way you can get the Mario amiibo for now is if you buy the Mario Party 10 bundle.

        We'll see how long that lasts. I'm pretty sure that Mario amiibo is the amiibo they wanted to sell before they even though of making Smash ones.

        Pink Gold Peach!

      • TayaTaya Registered User regular
        I have an extra Luigi that I'd like to paint into the pink colour scheme. What kind of paint do you use? I have lots of Liquidex Basic acrylic paint but I doubt it's opaque enough.

      • GrathGrath I'm a much happier person these days Registered User, ClubPA regular
        I just bought acrylic paint from michaels. the 'americana brand. Except for pink gold peach I bought two different Martha stewart acrylics and mixed them. Light gold and pink taffeta.

        The advice that was given to me that when I finally took it made my life way easier was 'thin your paints!' and 'buy decent brushes!' There are all kinds of screwups on mario and some others that were caused by thick paint and cheap brushes.

        I like that Toon Link custom. That's the color I always pick.

        I wish the in game skin would also change his sword and shield to the NES versions.

      • TairuTairu Registered User regular
        I was thinking about how if they do end up releasing card versions of discontinued amiibo, that could be great for custom amiibo artists. The cost of getting certain figures makes messing with them, at least to me, prohibitively expensive. But if you could just get a card, take out the NFC chip and put it into a Mario amiibo you could have a lot more leeway.

        I saw a neat thing somebody did with the NFC. They cut up the box and created a little keychain with the boxart and had the NFC sticker inside. That way he can take his Amiibo anywhere while not having to worry about damaging the figure.

        Gamestop is calling the Mario Bros line wave 4, for whatever reason. That's bound to cause issues later.

        Yeah. I know that Shulk one will be near impossible to get in stores. Ebayed it.

      • TayaTaya Registered User regular
        Today is the release date for Lucario in Canada but our store didn't get their shipment in. They gave rainchecks for the first 20 people in line.

        Well, Toad was available for pre-order on Walmart. I had him in my cart, checked another tab, got distracted, and then he sold out.

        Frik. Sigh.

        I'm just gonna chill on toad. I have a feeling he'll be easy to snag once the hype dies down a bit. I don't care about the rest of the SMB line. I just want toad because he doesn't exist in the SSB line
