    Do you guys use the amiibos for their intended purpose, like, train them up in Smash Bros?

    I've used the shit out of them in Hyrule Warriors.

    Want to find me on a gaming service? I'm SwashbucklerXX everywhere.

    Trained up a full power Samus and a perfect speed Pikachu. (That -1 in DEF is taunting me but whatevs)

    I just wish I could play AS my amiibo, not with it. :/

    I've tried to use a few Amiibos in Smash, but every time they hit Level 50 they're unstoppable godlike fighters and it's not fun any more.

    It's fun and educational to fight against my amiibos. I see them do techniques and I try to replicate it
    My speedy pikachu taught me doing a Up+A and follows with a Down+B.
    Pretty neat stuff.
    I've also learned to love the C-Stick.

    I have Mario, Luigi, Young Link, and Samus amiibos that I'm confident will be usable for plenty down the road even without owning Smash. The Splatoon trio I bought because I love splatoon and wanted the game content and also wanted to support the IP.

    You might not be able to find amiibos such as those, but they are getting more available, and ebay prices are going down on them.

    Rosalina, maybe. I've even seen her back in stock myself. As far as I know, Dedede hasn't actually been restocked yet, but we have just found out that they have made more Dedede. He was looking like the odd one out for a little bit.

    Gamestop got a restock on Dedede recently, every store got a few it seems. They went out along with the large reship of Ness.

    I've never received an email notification from Amazon. I'm convinced the system is broken.

    I want those amiibo. I would love for a Peach, Toad, and Bowser 8-bit variants.

    Then Toad will be forever flipping everyone off on their shelves. :P

    They used it in the Treehouse stream, it's pretty rough from the wrong angle. Also ginormous.

    Do you have a smart phone? The Amazon app is what I used to snag Lucina when she was on sale.

    Seeing that amiibo from a corner angle like that really makes me want to play a spiraling level where you traverse a huge, 8-bit Mario. Start at the back foot, up the pants to the front foot, up his sides and back to the back fist, up his arms and face to his front fist, then shoot over to the cap for a boss fight/star/goal. Top it off with a camera pull-back to show the entire level was Mario.

    While I got my copy on the pc, my sister saw it on her phone shortly after my shout of victory. She did not see it on her laptop.


    Maybe the phone system is better positioned in the chain of servers for when new products are added to the system and the info trickles down to the rest of their servers?

    I will be asleep when she goes up but I am indifferent as still my main goal of Amiibos are the Fire Emblem ones

    So cool thing happened today. I was returning something to Best Buy and I decided to stop in toys r us just to see on the off chance they have anything new in the amiibo section. Noone around my area ever does because my area has a high population of scalpers.

    So I went in and they had all the usual stuff and then on the end, on a random peg, all by himself is a Charizard. I was so happy.

    He is probably one of my favorite amiibos. He's just awesome looking. Just Wario to go now for this wave. (I want Lucina and Greninja too but I'm not holding my breath on finding them ever.)

    My collection (minus Ink Boy who is lent out to my brother). Sorry about the fuzzy picture. The newest three additions are out front. I think I am done for now...unless I happen to find Marth out in the wild. Been looking for him since the beginning. Lucina is doing a good job at filling the void though :)
