    100 people own 7 million amiibo?! No wonder they hard to find

    Yeah, the amiibos make excellent camouflage.

    TRU opens at 10am here? That seems late, but I guess each is different.

    I'll head over at 9:30am and hang out I guess.

    Are stores supposed to be restocking a bunch or just getting in Mario Maker and Bowser Jr.?

    Is there any info from Amazon about how many amiibo they have in stock? I don't think I have the will to wake up at 6:30 to stand in line at a target for ZSS and retro mario this time around.

    Can you move their lil arms or are they sown to the body?

    They are sewn on but they move a tiny bit since it's like a little nub. The entire thing is very soft and very well crafted. Even if they were not amiibo they are really awesome quality.

    I'm gonna hit Target on my way to work. I don't really care much about Amiibos but the pixelated Mario is too damn cool. And if I don't find one, my collection remains unchanged: non-existant.

    Woke up and WalMart mobile website said it had the ones I want in stock at the closest store. Head over and nothing. Check again, website says pick up in a week.

    I dunno if its all walmarts, but mine does this alot. Says its in stock but it's not. Its even more annoying when I try to buy it online. Product page says in store pick up in an hour, checkout page says a week.

    Worst part is I always forget.

    I always assumed this way due to how often they push their inventory data, like 1/day or something. Kinda sucks in 2015, for sure.

    SUCCESS! I have snagged all remaining amiibo I need (except Bowser Jr.) from Nebraska Furniture Mart's website and thus avoided paying the stupid Geoffrey tax on all but one :D Now to wait in line for 2 hours for that last one :P

    (kind of wish Target hadn't *actually* shipped Ganondorf so I could have cancelled that one, but oh well.... ironically looks like he might arrive today and Dr. Mario not, even though Dr. Mario shipped way the hell at the start of the week and Ganondorf just shipped Wed -_-)

    5th in line at Toys R Us. It wasn't that bad, everyone got on of each. (About 20 people) though the scalper cutting everyone cause his mom saved a spot to get two amiibos was a bit annoying.

    Point is fuck scalpers.

    Got the Splatoon 3-pack from a (very) short window of online order availability! Hooray!

    Stood in line at Target for the first time this morning on the way to work. Got Ganondorf and the last of their 8-bit classic Marios. I was 5th in line, and they were limiting to two total amiibo per customer. Yikes. Also have Mario Maker; the rubix cube is rad.

    This is going to be a looooong work day. Or maybe a really short one >_>

    I went to the best buy canada website, just to see if maybe something went up early there. Hilariously they appear to have pulled every amiibo from the website, at least temporarily, only things that show up in a search for amiibo are games that use it and pre-order bundles.

    going to be fun when they put them all back up.

    Stopped in this morning at the local Target. About 8-10 in line.. I missed that line because I didn't realize they were doing something special.

    Lady right before me got the last Zero Suit Samus. Store was limiting Amiibo to 2 per customer. I got pixel Mario and Olimar, and a copy of Super Mario Maker without the pack-in.

    Picked up Ganondorf and 8-bit Mario today. That brings my total up to 7.

  • The WolfmanThe Wolfman Registered User regular
    Got 'ma Ganondorf, Samus, and 8 bit Modern Mario. I kept saying for months that after 'Dorf, I am out. But after the Splatoon amiibo, and now the special Mario one... If they keep releasing amiibo that do special in game functions for the games I want... It's never gonna end. :(

    Man, the pictures of Ganondorf did not do him justice. Apparently I completely missed the fact that he has a rad as shit cape.

    Gamestop in Canton, MA had zero pre-orders for the figures they got in stock (which was all of the new ones, apparently). I snagged the one and only Amiibo I will ever buy, 30th pixelated classic Mario. Thought about getting Samus for a moment until I realized I don't care for the Zero Suit and if I bought more than one, I'd be doomed to buy more than "more than one."

    This was after I went to Target, found they didn't get any in stock, saw the Easton store had them in stock on the website, drove the 20 minutes over there and found out they were sold out since they opened. Glad their website updates consistently! Just randomly stopped at the Gamestop to see if they had them and got lucky.

    American Europe. AKA Canada. :) Yeah, for some reason we get him as an individual release, albeit Walmart exclusive for whatever reason.

    Nice. I just ordered the classic mario from Wal-Mart, but I might want to trade it with someone for the modern colors when that's individually released in the states. I don't know. Dammit, Nintendo!

    I was waffling so hard back and forth. I wasn't terribly interested in getting both. So which one? Classic Mario is classic, NES colours. Pure. Nostalgic. Representative of nearly the first video game I ever really owned (I had an Intellivision, but I was like 2-3 at the time, so it's not where my soul truly lies). Modern Mario looks exactly like he does now, and doesn't have the weird thing the classic has where his shirt, eyes, and hair/mustache are all the same exact colour (I know it's NES colour limitations... it's still weird :)).

    I like the modern one better because the brighter colors are more pleasing to look at.

    I picked up Ganondorf at Gamestop on my lunch break. No sign of ZSS. I checked Walmart, but they had nothing. No clue if they are sold out or just bad at stocking their shelves. Staff are no help. At best they interpret my inquiry as a greeting of "amigo"

    I do not care for Walmart. I've been there maybe five times this year, and one of those times my fingers got slashed by a razor blade hidden inside a 12 pack of soda.

    Not really Walmart's fault, but that is the type of crowd they tend to attract.

    I don't go there after the sun sets.

    Yeah, information actually coming out from management or department managers in regards to just about anything is rare if not impossible. Doubly so when they try to run the store with the minimum number of people possible and have people covering departments that they don't really know anything about.

    And anyone who actually *does* know things about a department are the ones that get disenfranchised and leave, or never actually put into that department.

    Some shit, it has been seen over the years. Like the customer who tried to steal PS4's by shoving them down their pants.

    My amiibo hunt was successful and I didn't even have to take a day off work. I ordered ZSS and Olimar when they went up briefly on amazon.ca. On my 9:30 break I went to Toys R Us and got Bowser Jr, Classic Mario, and Ganondorf. On my 12:30 lunch break I went to Walmart and got Dr.Mario and Modern Mario.

    It's so rare that everything goes smoothly.
