    I guess they missed their chance to release a Tingle amiibo alongside Majora's Mask 3D.

    Well, nobody seems to be biting on my Silver Mario + Greninja eBay listing, so I may throw in my Ike Amiibo and bump it up a few dollar to try to get it to move.

    So when do you think the preorders will go live?
    We are less than a month away and I say it will open sometime next Friday.

    I had a conversation earlier with a guy who ended up being out 700 dollars because the amiibo scalping bubble burst.

    I feel smug now.

    I'll believe the bubble burst when Lucina drops below $25. Shulk would also be nice.

    eBay looks like your best bet for the pink one right now. Quick glance tells me you could Buy It Now for 27-ish/

    Amazon does have one Japanese Pink incorrectly listed under the European one, which is about 29 dollars, but thats a 2 to 3 week delivery time.


  • Lindsay LohanLindsay Lohan Registered User regular
    I found one on Amazon for $20 shipped so I'll probably go that route (just gotta pad that order up to $35 now). Ebay is fine, but my concern was more shipping times. I just imported 3 DS games and they took 1.5 months to show up :)

    Yeah, that wave is the Unicorniest of all. Little Mac, Pit, and Falcon are likely the hardest to come by.

    IIRC I have both an extra Pit and Falcon. I might even have two extra Falcons.

    Extra Dedede as well, I think I have 1 US, 1 Japanese.

    Yeah, I saw those. Thought about it but then decided that Shulk looks goofy in amiibo form and probably can't be used for Xenoblade when it comes to Wii U NA Virtual Console.

    Dedede is the only one I hope to get, but I don't really care what region it is.

    Browsed my local TRU. Saw 3 Pac-Man, 2-3 Silver Mario. Everything else was regular stuff. Sonic was in there. A few Toads.

    I got my blue and pink yarn Yoshis from amiami.com. Apparently it is the cheapest option for imported amiibos but they are not always in stock. I have the site bookmarked in case Zero Suit Samus, Ganondorf or any other amiibos not released here yet goes up.

    I'll be really curious to see what, say, the Mario amiibos do. And if there is a difference between Smash and SMB series (probably not but it'd be cool if there was)

    You don't need the amiibos for these characters, you can unlock all of them in-game by beating a random series of user created levels over and over.

    Cross posting from Mario thread:


    Skip to 5:20 or so to see most amiibo costumes.

    Holy crap, those sound effects! I love how Peach's is from SMB2 (USA) and Samus gets the Metroid intro fanfare. Also when Pacman runs he turns into classic Pacman like in Smash :D So awesome! Also love how when Wario beats the stage it plays the Wario Land music :D

    haha, it's like you and me think similarly. My son and daughter have been wanting to try Infinity, and I wasn't overly interested until 3.0 and all the Star Wars stuff. Now I've been investigating it some. Still not sure if I can justify the price of entry though.

    Infinity is alright

    It's definitely meant for kids

    I pretty much just get the figures and barely play the game

    I mean yeah Star Wars is neat but the functionality of amiibos have been underwhelming it makes me yern for something like what Disney Infinity does. Playing as your favorite character, leveling them up and giving them certain abilities via a skill tree.

    That shits neat, why doesn't Nintendo do that?

    As with amiibo, wait for sales.

    If you're patient, you can get most Infinity content for half price or less if you wait it out for sales.

    Does the Inkling Girl costume turn into squid form when you duck? If I'm seeing that right, that's a great touch.

    I have an Amiibo! Put Toon Link on my Amazon wishlist on a whim and was surprised to get him as a birthday pressie.

    Very nice figure, but looking up game compatibility I'm still not seeing a massive appeal to that side of them.

    I still can't wait for Mario Maker. It gave me an urge to want to trade for a Wario amiibo.

    How do the amiibo work in that game? I know if you tap your own you get the costumes to use. I thought I read about you unlock them if you play levels with them too. Is that right?

    I so want to play levels as DK. Loving the larger characters for that.

    It looks like you unlock one of the 99 costumes at random every time you beat the 100 Mario Challenge

    You can use costumes in the levels if someone puts them in the level, but I don't think they are unlocked
