    Yup, because it was complete bullshit :P I'm really glad they aren't doing that.

    Yeah, but it was the straight-up dick move I came to expect from GS. Nice job interweb persons!

    Please tell me Duck Hunt is not Gamestop exclusive.

    So far all three are. The individual figures are not in anyone else's system.

    FUCK.

    Just the three pack is exclusive. According to the leak about this, they are not exclusive as individual figures.

    Also, this stinks, I am in a school all Saturday, so there is no way I could make it over there to pre-order them.

    Well, the leak never specifies for sure. And like I said, the individual figures have not shown up in anyone's system. They *might* come later, but who knows. But the way it's looking right this second, it seems they are GS exclusive via the 3 pack.

    Well fuck that. I want a Duck Hunt but I'm sure as hell not buying a 3 pack of relatively unrelated figures from Gamestop.

    Is it? Last I heard some Gamestops were opening an hour early, but the Pro requirement is gone.

    Confirmed for reaslies, assuming they don't make any more changes:
    -Pro membership is required once again for the 1-hour early event. (This is stressful.)

    Now as an update to that same reddit thread:
    Per email communications and this morning's update on GSO, the official word is that the PUR Pro membership will not be required for early opening. Obviously, it looks like YMMV on this one. Ultimately, a DM may attempt to continue enforcing the PUR requirement in his district.

    Well they did higher a bouncer at the gamestop near me to check people's pre order receipts on July 26th
    So I wonder if they are going to do the same thing with this

    Update from a Nintendo email blast:
    The full list of amiibo figures launching on the 11th of September includes:

    30th Anniversary Mario Classic Color
    Zero Suit Samus
    Ganondorf
    Olimar
    Bowser Jr.
    Dr. Mario

    On Sept. 25, a Retro 3 Pack will launch, which includes R.O.B., Duck Hunt and Mr. Game & Watch amiibo from the Super Smash Bros. series in a single package.
    Further details about availability and pre-order schedules for these figures will be announced directly from various retailers in the near future. Three figures based on Mii Fighters, which were previously announced for release in September, will now launch as a 3 pack in November. More information about launch plans for the 30th Anniversary Mario Modern Color amiibo in North America will be shared in the future.

    Maybe the Gamestop bundle really is exclusive?

    A store exclusive 3 pack of amiibo that are not available as individuals? Including an amiibo that has 4 possible poses that will drive completionists insane?

    Nintendo is still making horrible amiibo decisions, despite restocks happening.

    I thought they said somewhere that the retro Mario would be available at launch, and the modern would be out at a later date, like October or something.

    Game & Watch comes with all four poses. If anything, this will help counter the assholes that were going to buy 4 of him

    That's right. It's dumb, but I bet they're doing it this way because modern color will be exclusive somewhere

    Against my better judgement, I'll probably pass by my local Gamestop to see what's up. I live in a fairly "out in the boonies" area, so I'm not anticipating any huge crowds, unless some of the nuttier Amiibo folks decide to hit up every store in the area to get stock to flip on eBay.

    I'm not waking up early, nor am I camping out, but if I show up and there are pre-orders left, I'll put one in.

    As a dude who lives/pays too much to live in NYC, one of the advantages I have when it comes to Amiibo hunting is having access to Nintendo World. Meaning I've paid retail for the Fire Emblem/Ness/Splatoon/Little Mac Amiibo without resorting to pre-orders/violence/scalping/sexual favors.

    That being said, I'm willing to do one or all of those things for that Zero Suit Samus.

    Well that sucks. I was really hoping to get a ROB, but there's no way I'm going to fight G&W and Duck Hunt fans for the right to pay triple for him.

    I guess I'm out of luck unless an influx of amateur scalpers drives the ebay price down.

    You could enter into a cost splitting pact with someone who just wants Duck Hunt and/or G&W and would let you carve off the ROB for a third of the bundle's cost.

    If you want to be optimistic, then hope this is just something like the Splatoon 3 pack. The boy and girl were also available separately.
