    Well that's the other thing...I may swing by Best Buy and see what I can turn up with, but judging by Meta Knight's release, I'm not terribly hopeful.

    Early reports are an average of 100 Dark Pits per Best Buy.

    That's a lot of Dark Pits.

    The Goddess of Light has arrived! Aside from her freakishly large hands, she isn't too derpy (her face actually looks pretty good). So yay!

    Edit: Surprised how flimsy her left arm is though. Feels like the same kind of flimsy as, say, Marth's sword.

    Edit 2: Picture!

      if I spent retail for all my amiibo.. it would be $600+

      However.. I paid over retail for a couple. and I've done a couple contests with giveaways for other amiibo. so I'd say i'm closer to $900+
      (I also have the splat set, two gold marios and a silver mario and toad that aren't in that picture. One gold and silver mario are for a giveaway that never happened due to health issues on my part)

      I feel dirty but I sold one marth on ebay for 125$ in January but I put it toward my amiibo funds and have since then bought extras for trades or PA folks. Since I never traded any they all ended up being PA ones

        I think that the only rule of amiibo collecting should be that we never remind each other just how much we've spent on them.

        Last year I only used funbucks from Swag and Perk for Amiibos, but this year I'm putting those funbucks towards an upcoming Disney trip, so I wasn't able to do that for most of this year, but that'll change once December arrives.

        You just know that 8-bit Mario Amibo is going to be a bitch to get.

        It is funny how you can just straight up import from Japan and get a better price.

        All Yarn Yoshi look to be $25 or so with Prime shipping. I don't know if that is new news or what, but I grabbed the pink one that I needed.

        It isn't THAT big of a ripoff. Plus, wanted to make sure I have it for my GFs birthday in August. Don't the US versions not come out till September?

        Exactly. I wouldn't have it in time for an August birthday (obviously).

        Now to get to Best Buy on Friday for my Pitoo.

              Still no word on when the Amiibo editions of Mario Maker and Yarn Yoshi are up for pre-order?

              I have both pre-ordered from Best Buy, but I'm ready to cancel and pre-order the amiibo bundles if they pop up.

              I'm also waiting for the amiibo Chibi Robo bundle to show up too.

              I believe it was a EU preorder bonus. It's actually a working light.

              Don't know about Europe, but I got it from the Australian Club Nintendo site about 6 weeks back. You can grab one on ebay now for $tupid dollars.
