Default Amiibo Thread General

Just wanted to make a general thread for Amiibos since apparently we didn't have one. So post about your adventures finding Amiibo, or maybe your most recent acquisitions or any news about Amiibo.

Anyway, just wanted to say to our American members that the Retro 3 Pack of Amiibo is still in-stock on Gamestop.com. http://www.gamestop.com/accessories/...clusive/123757 Go and get it!

I have all the released (44 in total) Smash amiibos, Splatoon Inkling girl, boy and Squid amiibos, Toad amiibo, gold and silver Mario amiibos and green, blue and pink Yarn Yoshi amiibos.

I didn't pay any scalpers for these, I got them all at retail price. But tbh I'm kinda starting to lose interest in collecting amiibos for some reason. Maybe it's all the stealing and scalping that's putting me off them.

I don't really have the patience to hunt these things down anymore. I'll probably just get what I can get. Only have about 7

I'm with sapph. Hunting them down sucks. I have a general wish list of charizard, jigglypuff, and falco however.

I really just want the Roy amiibo to drop so I can truly be done buying these things. Wonder who he'll be exclusive to...?

guys, as I have said some times, in Greece, after the wii nobody plays Nintendo. So I find any amiibo, any special edition and anything else Nintendo related for a normal or eve lower price in every electronics store. I never preorder amiibos or buy them from germany cause the are sold out within the first couple of days and then you can only find them for twice the price.

That's how I got my Splatoon+amiibo copy for 45 euros and that's how I'm gonna get Mario Maker+Amiibo as well!

I got into amiibo scalping (fight me irl) but it's too much work keeping up with the alerts. Now I actually kinda want Marth and Greninja but they're too expensive, heh.

-Link (SSB)
-Zelda (SSB)
-Sheik (SSB)
-Toon Link (SSB)
-Inkling Boy (Splatoon)
-Inkling Girl (Splatoon)
-Inkling Squid (Splatoon)

I hope to get Ganondorf and the Wooly World amiibo.

I'm on the fence about it but I might buy all the Mario series amiibo because they look cute.

I only get the amiibo I like. I'm not a serious collector.

It'll be harder to find eventually, but its your own damn fault if you don't get one, just like the Splatoon amiibo or Gold Mario

The bad thing about Nintendo's handling of amiibo are all the stock issues.

Other than that, I think they're fine. They fill a niche in the mid-range figure market that wasn't there before plus they provide functionality (unlike the Disney Infinity or Skylanders) that works in multiple different games.

Has anyone see the Ganondorf amiibo anywhere?

I'm in no rush to get it but I've been on the look out for one.

Does anyone still collect amiibo? I don't really care much for the Smash Bros. amiibo anymore, I find their Super Mario counterparts far more aesthetically pleasing. Diddy is such an improvement to the awful derpy looking Smash Bros. one.



I love these new display stands by PDP, especially the firebar one. It actually spins around. Check them all out in the video here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BGrvku9J6fV/

All the series to come out after the smash ones all look so much better. Even both new link ones already look way better than the smash one.
