    Well, it's cheaper than a New3DS.

    Besides that FE game and the new 3ds Xenoblade, what uses Amiibo on 3ds?

    So, nothing much. ;)

    Besides already owning Smash and MAYBE getting Happy Home Designer, no reason for me to get the Amiibo reader.

    Honestly not really, though something good could always come along in the future.

    If I want a Yarn Yoshi amiibo at some eventual point, is there anything special that I'm going to have to do?

    Ritual Sacrifice.

    In reality, who knows. They're almost assuredly going to be rare unless Nintendo correctly anticipates that they will be a higher demand because of their aesthetic and produces more of them.

    I'm pretty sure that involves throwing a virgin into a volcano. The virgin being a mint in the box Wii Fit Trainer.

    I thought the virgin owned the mint in box Wii Fit Trainer.

    They're obviously going to make more for the U.S. launch, and a bunch of those are going in boxes with the game. I'm going to be getting the game physically anyway, so if I can grab one of those boxes I'm fine.

    The question is, will I need to do anything special to get one of those boxes, or will enough of them end up sitting on shelves? Can I just walk into Toys R Us in the next week or so, tell them I want the box, and whenever the game comes out just show up and they'll have the box for me?

    The entire history of amiibo indicates that no, they are not going to make more. They did a single production run that runs out when it runs out, and if we're lucky they "make more" nine months down the road.

    So basically preorder if you don't want to import.
    Im just waiting for the Mario Marker/Yoshi Wooly World amiibo bundle to go up. :/

    Do you really need each pose on an amiibo base? Why not just create a custom display for him so you can make it look like he's moving through his poses.

    You don't even need to be creative. You could probably wait 24 hours and copy someone's design.

    Honestly, I'll probably do something like this. My wife is very patient with my hobby, but I think buying four of the same figure would be a really hard thing to explain when that money could go to something much more important. :P

        If no one wants him, I'll keep him -- there are worse fates. Thanks though!

        But if anyone likes me Ness more than I do, speak up!

          looks like at least 1 local gamestop broke street on those, since some guy has them listed on craigslist for $35 each
          he's also asking $25 for silver mario, which is insane since every store still has a pile of them

          So found imports of Rosalina and Lucario on Amazon with Prime shipping for $20-25 each. Went ahead and bought them.

          Chances of me actually getting a US version of them at this point from Toys R Us or Target are nonexistant, so I figure thats about as cheap as Ill see.

          As soon as I grab a Dedede in the morning I'll finally have the full Smash lineup.

          If you guys find an extra Dedede, I wouldn't mind buying it from you. I'm missing four at this point. Shulk, Robin, Lucina, and Dedede.

          Oh snap, check what I just found at a random-ass toy store:

          DSCN0125_zpsrkkhyxbf.jpg

          Going for standard retail price too, unusual to see any amiibo without a mark-up in my experience. This is the only amiibo that I really wanted, so I am pretty pleased.
          I have seen more about than usual mind you (in the UK), even the normally empty GAME stores have a few shelves of them, including some of the rarer ones. Still haven't seen a wild Lucina though!

          Does the Nintendo store in NYC stock Amiibos fairly consistently or is it only when they send out the emails that they are going to have them? My wife is travelling there at the end of the month and I was hoping to send her with a list.

          You in the UK Halos? Smyths near me has had nearly all the rare miibos back in stock the last couple weeks. Except Rosalina, natch. ;P

          I am indeed, I'd never even heard of Smyths before, though I suppose I don't exactly keep on eye on toy stores nowadays, but they seem pretty good, kinda like a cheap Toys R Us.

          I was there Monday. They had only commons: Mario, Luigi, Peach, Toad, King Koopa, Link, Zelda, and Pikachu. They have a ton of each of them though.

          They also have a very nice Figma Link Figure for $50 and a giant Ganon one for $100

          Oh, while I'm swapping Amiibos -- Gamestop had a sale on used Amiibos last weekend that literally made it seven dollars cheaper to buy three used than two. Long story short, if anyone wants a loose, used Smash line Bowser in great shape, it's yours.

          I got Mario Party Yoshi the same way (and more Infinity stuff than I care to admit to you or my wife!) If no-one else takes it I'd love Bowser, be more than willing to paypal you a bit for it or shipping.
